How many additional rings will a QB bring?

The guys at Advanced NFL Stats have turned their high-wattage brains on converting the common statistic Win Probability Added (WPA) to Ring Probability Added (RPA). Despite the common misconception, Peyton Manning does very well in their new statistic:

The results are not hugely surprising. Brady leads the way with +1.38 RPA, followed by the Manning brothers, Roethlisberger and Brees – the winners of 5 of the last 6 Superbowls.

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.
