Yesterday, I looked at Hall of Fame quarterbacks and All-Pro voting. In that post, I looked at all All-Pro nominations, but today I will limit this to just Associated Press first-team selections. The graph below shows the team winning percentage for AP 1AP quarterback’s team in each year since 1950. In red, I have also included the AFL AP 1AP team’s winning percentage:
On average, the Associated Press selected a quarterback on a team with a 0.800 winning percentage, and that number has been relatively stable throughout history. The lowest winning percentage? That belongs to Dan Marino on the 1986 Dolphins, at 0.500. After him, Steve Young (1993) and Drew Brees (2006) both were named All-Pros on 10-6 teams, and every other quarterback was on a team that won at least two-thirds of their games.
