Predicting game-by-game results this far in advance requires an assumption that each position group plays to form. This series of “Good, Bad and Ugly” articles analyzes by position group the likelihood and consequences of over-performance (Good), under-performance (Bad) and worst case (Ugly).
First in the series we consider the quarterback position. More than any other group quarterback performance affects the play of the other groups and the fate of the team. Good quarterback play makes the offensive line’s job easier, enhances receivers and tight ends performances and provides more opportunities for running backs. Defensive groups can be more flexible, apply more pressure, face fewer short field situations and spend less time on the field.
