Colts passer rating differential

Nate Dunlevy quotes my all-time favorite NFL stat passer rating differential as he breaks down what went wrong for the Colts last year. Passer rating differential essentially compares offensive passing to defense against the pass. It’s the best predictor of championships we have–a point the Colts woefully proved in 2011:

The Colts were a cataclysm at quarterback, ranking 30th in team passer rating. They also fielded one of the worst secondaries in the league, ranking 31st in defensive passer rating. The net result is a PRD of minus-31.7.

So, who has the No. 1 pick in the draft again?

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
