What happened to sticking with facts? I thought that was your guiding principal?
I don't know and neither do you, nor does anyone else. I think they were probably just as likely, but it's just speculation. Did you forget that they won 6 in a row with Orton back in 2009? Did you see where I posted that 3 of the 4 losses with Orton as QB were less than 5 points with 2 of them being by 3 points or less?
Did you read where I said they actually scored more points per game with Orton
at QB than with Tebow? If the offense actually scored more points per game with QB X than QB Y, then how is so far-fetched to think that they'd have been just as likely the playoffs with QB X? You'd have to be a moron to think scoring less points per game increases a team's chances of winning.
I don't know what everyone else thinks, but I have to believe scoring more points is better than scoring less. And I also have to think that if QB Y is much better than QB X, then the offense
would actually perform better. If the offense performed worse, then I'd have a hard time concluding that the leader of that offense was significantly better.
I know which team won the game when the 2 QBs played head to head. And you do realize the Chiefs won 2 of 3 once they acquired Orton, including the sole loss the Packers had the whole year. They had loss 4 of 5 prior to that. Their only loss was a 3 point loss to Oakland. It gets really fuzzy when you start trying to pins wins and losses on a QB.
