It’s pretty odd to say Peyton Manning was one of the worst QB’s of 2015, especially with his history of being one of the greatest of all time. But, that’s nothing compared to the fact that he may actually win the Super Bowl.
“Peyton Manning, one of the greatest football players of all time, played the worst season of his career in 2015. And yet he still might be able to end his career with a Super Bowl win. By any statistical measurement, Peyton Manning was one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL in 2015. He finished tied for dead last in QB Rating with Ryan Mallett, who was cut midway through the season by the Texans. QB Rating is a famously flawed stat, but I argue that finishing last in it is still a sign you are playing poorly. ESPN’s QBR is a little kinder, placing Manning 30th. Pro Football Focus’ comprehensive grades placed Manning amongst ‘the worst of the league.'” -Reported by Rodger Sherman
