    QBs should be measured by "Situation Handling."

    There are so many stats for QBs floating out there.

    You have the raw numbers (attempts, completions, yards, TDs, etc.).

    You have ratings (QB rating, total QBR, etc.).

    You can go by wins and losses.

    You can go by playoff performances.

    But, to me, it comes down to how a QB plays in key situations. The situations handling factor (which, I believe, is the best objective description of the "it factor") is what really sets apart the average from the good, and the good from the elite.

    So how do you measure the Situation Handling (SH) It factor?

    Well, when you're talking SH It factors, you really should just go on your observations. I think most of us know a QB with a good SH It factor when we see one. While you can certainly argue about the SH It factor of a particular player, even casual fans can point out a QB who has that SH It factor.

    So, forget the complicated stats.

    Its all about the SH It factor.

    And you thought Mike Martz was "mad"!

    I can think of a few QB's in the NFL that have the SH IT factor.

    In fact, I think they're full of SH IT.

    So. Mr. Evil where have you been all these months? Cleaning out the SH IT factor in Tom's basement or what?

    At any rate welcome back.....um...I think.

    I think you need to take the CORN ( Casual Observations Revealing Nothing) out of your SH IT and replace it with some FIBER ( Facts Instead of Blarney Espoused by Rubes).

    Just trying to help formulate a firm statistical...um.. stool for a fellow fan. Sometimes you have to push a little harder to get these things done.
