## Bryan Frye’s QB Series: Part 5 – Dr. Safelove (Interceptions)

Bryan Frye, owner and operator of the great site http://www.thegridfe.com, is back for another guest post. You can also view all of Bryan’s guest posts at Football Perspective at this link, and follow him on twitter @LaverneusDingle.

On Monday, I looked at which quarterbacks since 1960 helped or hurt their teams the most by taking or avoiding sacks. On Tuesday, I looked at the quarterbacks who gained the most or fewest yards through the air per attempt or dropback, and on Wednesday, we looked at completions relative to league average. Yesterday, the metric of the day was touchdown pass rate.

As promised, this article, “Dr. Safelove or: How I Learned to Start Worrying and Fear the Bomb,” centers on interceptions. The methodology here is no different from before: Figure out each player’s rate stats relative to the average of the rest of the league minus that player (LMP) that year and multiply it by his attempts to find the marginal total.

The caveat for this article is a big one: it is mathematically impossible for modern players to rank highly on a per play basis. In 1945, Sammy Baugh threw interceptions at a rate 7.4% lower than his peers. Because the league average today is so low (about 2.5%), a current quarterback would have to throw negative interceptions to match a -7.4% relative pick rate. Even if a quarterback threw 700 passes without an interception, the best he could possibly do is about -2.5%.

For single seasons, this makes a big difference. For entire careers, however, it isn’t as big of a deal. The higher volume of modern passers helps offset the superior rates of older quarterbacks. It’s not perfect, but hey … this is a data dump.1

Single Season Stats

The first table presents the 1,563 passing seasons with at least 224 attempts and is sorted by marginal interceptions (lower is better). Read it thus: In 1947, Sammy Baugh threw 15 interceptions on 354 attempts, or 4.24% of his passes. The rest of the league threw picks on 8.73% of passes, so Baugh’s marginal rate was -4.49%. This gave him -16 marginal interceptions.

Like I said, the significant decrease in interceptions over the years makes it impossible for a recent player to rank highly. I’m not really worried about that, because I really want to highlight efficient seasons from bygone eras.

I’ve discussed Baugh ad nauseam in these posts (and for good reason). For now, I’ll just say: hey, he’s number one again.

Steve Bartkowski was decent quarterback on some exceedingly mediocre Falcons squads. He picked up a few Pro Bowl nods, but no one put him on the level of a Fouts or Montana (or even Ken Anderson) among his contemporaries. However, he did lead the league in touchdowns (1980), completion rate (1984), and interception rate (1983) once apiece. The passing environment in 1983 was such that a quarterback would be expected to throw about 19 picks on 432 attempts. Bartkowski threw 14 fewer than expectation – good for second best all time.

Sonny Jurgensen had the misfortune of playing on some pretty awful teams. However, despite playing for more than one team, in more than one system, and with a cast of uninspiring teammates, Jurgensen consistently produced on the field. He was a contemporary of Bart Starr and Johnny Unitas, but it was he who was considered the finest pure passer of his generation. In 1967, he led the league in both pass attempts and interception percentage. That combination resulted in 13 interceptions below expectation.

Roman Gabriel is all but forgotten by most modern fans (but certainly not by loyal FP readers), but he deserves much credit for his ability to avoid throwing the ball to the wrong team. No, Gabriel’s 3.3% interception rate can’t compare with Aaron Rodgers’ 1.6% or Tom Brady’s 2.0%, but for his era, he played it about as safe as a passer can play it. Four years apart, and with two different teams, Gabriel led the NFL in interception rate and saved his teams 13 picks.

The highest ranked season of recent vintage is Damon Huard’s magical one interception campaign in 2006. It was a complete fluke, as stats like these often are, but his 0.4% interception rate still ranks number one in history (among qualifying passers, obviously).2

There are two notable passing seasons that are omitted by using a 224 attempt threshold. In 1936, Arnie Herber threw 13 interceptions on 173 passes, which is good for a 7.5% rate. That sounds pretty terrible at face value, but the rest of the league threw picks on 13.8% of their passes (it was a different age, folks). If he threw the ball to opponents at the same rate as his contemporaries, he would have tossed 24 interceptions.

Whizzer White’s 1938 offering is a different story entirely. On just 73 passes, he threw 19 interceptions. His rate of 15.9% was even bad for pre-WW2 passers. He gave the ball away at such a high rate that he produced twelve interceptions above expectation, despite his low volume. Good thing he could fall back on being a Supreme Court Justice. 3

Career Stats

This table shows the 222 careers with 1,000 or more pass attempts. You probably know how to read these things by now.

There are effectively three tiers at the top of this list: the Roman Gabriel tier, the Fran Tarkenton tier, and the Joe Montana and Tom Brady tier.

In his sixteen years with the Rams and Eagles, Gabriel never threw interceptions at a rate worse than average.4 Over the course of his 4,498 attempt career, he saved his teams 94 interceptions.5 Think about it like this: the formula for ANY/A values interceptions at -45 yards. That means he saved 4,230 adjusted net yards by playing it safe.

Tarkenton’s career began a year before and ended a year after Gabriel’s. He ranks a distant to his rival in marginal interceptions; however, unlike Gabriel, he didn’t sacrifice positive plays while keeping his turnovers to a minimum.

Montana and Brady are often lumped together by fan and analysts alike (I can’t imagine why). Here, they sit side by side in their own tier, far below Tarkenton, but far above Baugh. Both quarterbacks thrived in systems that emphasized their intelligence and accuracy, which led to high completion and low interception rates for both. However, let’s not forget that the two also gained yards and threw touchdowns at a higher rate than their peers as well.

I want to avoid being negative today, so I’ll wrap a negative in a positive. Ken Stabler, threw 37 interceptions more than expectation over the course of his career. However, the rest of his rate stats compare favorably to almost any passer in history. This is pure speculation, but his interceptions may be the primary reason he doesn’t currently have a bust in Canton.6

Another article, another shout out to Cecil Isbell and Ed Danowski. They don’t reach the thousand attempt threshold, but they rank very highly in marginal interceptions. In 818 attempts, Isbell threw 28 fewer picks than you’d expect. In 637 attempts, Danowski was 27 picks below expectation. Those numbers would rank 29th and 30th all time.

That’s it for me, friends. Thanks for helping me steward the site in Chase’s absence. Leave your thoughts in the comments.

1. I thought about using standard deviations instead of just subtracting from the league average. This would be more mathematically honest, but it’s also beyond the scope of a simple data dump. []
2. I think we can write this season off not only because of the rest of Huard’s career, but also because this performance came at the tail end of a half decade of efficient passing seasons from three different quarterbacks. []
3. Also, White led the league in rushing yards and yards from scrimmage in 1938. It was a different time, folks. []
4. If you check out his PFR page, you’ll see his lowest INT%+ score was 108 in 1972. []
5. He balanced it out by throwing touchdowns at a below average rate, but we’re focusing on positives here. []
6. I think it’s important to mention that interceptions weren’t as harmful in Stabler’s era as they are now. The dataset on which ANY/A is based comes from an era of increased offensive effectiveness when turning the ball over to the opposing offense was more dangerous than ever. Interestingly, Brian Burke’s study on a more recent dataset (limited to first downs) showed that an interception in today’s scoring environment may be worth a 60 yard penalty. []
• sacramento gold miners

The 1980 Falcons and Steve Bartkowski had such a frustrating end to their season, blowing a big lead at home to the Cowboys in the playoffs. Atlanta would have Philadelphia in the NFC TG had they prevailed, and the Falcons already defeated the Eagles in Philadelphia during the regular season. Too bad the Falcons abandoned those red helmets.

• Call me crazy, but I think the end to almost ever Atlanta Falcons football season is pretty frustrating.

• Clint

Bartkowski could be a good case for patient QB development. Took around 6 years, but he was great from there on out. Seems like he had lousy offenses at the beginning and end, as well. Life was a bit rough without William Andrews and Alfred Jenkins. Regardless, if you have the talent and desire you should be able to eventually get there as long as those around you have the capability and belief in you to make it happen. Right? Maybe that’s too hokey.
Everyone just develops differently.

• sacramento gold miners

Couldn’t agree more about patient QB development, and a case could be made many college QBs who ran spread offenses need ample time to adjust to the NFL. But everyone is less patient than they were decades ago, and rookie high draft choices don’t even consume as much of the salary cap as they once did. A young, talented QB, may have the advantage of not being a top draft pick without the expectation, and just developing out of the spotlight. There has been talk of the NFL bringing back a developmental minor league in the hopes of helping the QB position, among others.

• What makes people think that NFL teams are less patient now than they used to be? As a Jets fan who has endured the Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith eras, I think the Jets have been pretty freakin’ patient.

Bryan – these posts have been awesome. Great reads and great titles.

Regarding Stabler and interceptions, etc., it’s true that tuturnovers, in general, just weren’t as disastrous 40 years ago as they are now. The obvious reason being that there were more of them per game; teams could almost anticipate that if they gave the ball away, they’d most likely take it back later in the game.

I have the numbers somewhere on this, but even anecdotedly, listen to a game from the 1970’s on YouTube (yes, I do this) – the number of turnovers is hilarious, the guys calling the game sometimes don’t even get excited about it.

Not only were there more turnovers, but interceptions happened deeper down the field than they do today. I wish we had play by play to prove this, but I feel reasonably certain that a high percentage of INT’s back then came on third down, and served as glorified punts.

• Tom

The discussion between Bradshaw and Swann/Stallworth or Stabler and Branch/Biletnikoff on a third-and-long might have been: “Just start running towards the end zone, I’ll chuck it way out there. If you don’t catch it, that’s fine, we’ll punt, but just make sure you tackle the guy if it gets picked off. Also, see if you can make it look like you were interfered with.”

Just messing around, but yeah, I agree with you. Don’t know enough about X’s and O’s, and game strategy, etc., but I’m wondering why more teams don’t do this – maybe they do and I’m not catching it, or they’re not successful at it. Recently, it seems like the Flacco-led Ravens do it a lot…

I’ve also wondered why teams don’t throw more bombs on third and long. This strategy seems especially sound in today’s game with all the ticky-tack defensive penalties being called.

• Tom

Yep, exactly…with the penalties I would think it would be more enticing. Or maybe field position is a lot more fluid and not quite the big deal it was back in the day? In any event, I typed in “Flacco pass interference” into Google and about 15 articles came up if you’re interested…didn’t read any, but I’m thinking some of them might go over this very topic.

• Tom

Just looked at some data that I had…the change is not that drastic, but substantial: from 1970 to now, turnovers in a game have dropped from around 5 to 3. The peak year was 1978 with 5.8 T/O per game.

• Thanks, Tom.

I think picks were less important back then for a few reasons. First, as Adam mentioned below, they did tend to come further downfield. Second, the offense’s ability to move the ball wasn’t as great as it is today, meaning that turning the ball over back then was less likely to result in an opponent scoring. The data used to derive the 45 yard interception penalty in THGOF came from the 80s, which was a more offense-oriented decade than the 70s, or even the 90s, really.

When Brian Burke did a study a few years ago, he used more recent data and concluded that, at least on first downs, a 60 yard penalty is more appropriate. The bigger penalty is fitting for modern offenses because the original 45 yards penalty (and the new 60 yard one) is based on expected points; these days, you cede more expected points when you turn the ball over, both by losing your own and giving them to your opponent.

I don’t have the play by play to do an expected points analysis for the 70s or earlier, but I think it is reasonable to assume that, given the harsher offensive environment back then, the EP swing from a turnover would be much lower and result in a concomitant decrease in the interception penalty. This is just a theory; I could be wrong (I often am).

I wonder if Roman Gabriel’s INT avoidance was actually suboptimal for his teams. It’s impossible to know how many big plays he left on the table due to his conservative play, but I’m betting it was a significant number. Tarkenton’s INT rate is more impressive for exactly the reason you mentioned.

• sacramento gold miners

Gabriel was one of those QBs with a sudden decline, his age 33 season with the Eagles was impressive. I do remember Gabriel resurfacing with the Rams in 1977, but Pro Football Reference doesn’t have a record of this.

• LightsOut85

It’s hard to knock Aaron Rodgers, but I’ve heard similar arguments regarding him (& his record when games are close – not taking enough chances).

I do think Rodgers would be better served throwing more INTs and taking fewer sacks, but his Y/A and TD% are so high that it probably doesn’t matter.

• LightsOut85

Agreed. If it ain’t broke…

• I don’t know if there’s an equilibrium, but Rodgers seems to have found it.

• Steve Bartkowski may have been good. But his son Chuck is even better.

Couldn’t resist the “Chuck” reference. And I agree with Tom. I’ve really been enjoying these posts. A little surprised to see Manning where he is. I guess he does have a tendency to make poor throws on the rare occasions he doesn’t get rid of the ball really quickly.

• Jamie

A big reason Manning is so low is his rookie year and his 2001 season with the worst defense in the league. He had +9 and +5 INTs over expectation in those two seasons. Remove those and he bumps up to -56, which would put him at 8th on the list.

• I think Manning is one of the only QBs who could end up ranked 13th, surrounded by all time greats, and still seem like he is rated too low. Keep in mind he was still well above average at avoiding interceptions, and unlike Gabriel, he didn’t have to sacrifice Y/A, TD%, or sacks in order to get there. I remember Dungy saying that one of the primary things he had to teach Manning when he took over for the Colts was not to feel like he had to win the game all by himself. It may be anecdotal, but it does seem that once Dungy imparted that wisdom, Manning never fell below average in Int% again.

• John

I didn’t know mcnabb had such a low interception percentage. It’s crazy because for most of his prime he was playing with terrible receivers

• LightsOut85

I remember reading (roughly, this was a while ago), that it’s largely due to the way QBs were coached in PHI (under Reid) – to throw more towards the ground/feet, so if it’s INC there’s a bigger chance it’ll be a harmless INC rather than an INT. Also why his Cmp% Index was lower than average in all but 3 seasons of his career.

• I’d like to thank Bryan for pitching in this week. It’s been a lot of fun following this series, and these data sources should be a great resource for folks.

• Thanks for letting me help out. I love the FP community.
