Team Bill's Worst Nightmare
Geez I don't know. Horrible line play can affect a QBs sack percentage. Receivers not getting open etc.. can affect a QBs sack percentage. Playcalling can affect a QBs sack percentage. It's not all on the QB imo.
What I mean by it being a QB stat is that, like completion pct, touchdowns, interceptions, yards/attempt, it's part of the passing game's bottom line. The standard passer rating formula was made before sacks were even recorded as statistics, so it was left out. So who is actually to blame has less to do with it than it being a part of the quarterback's overall performance score. Receivers, coaches, blocking, and really everyone has some responsibility for all the other stats too.
But I'll take it a step further: 99% of it is because Marino got rid of the ball quicker than Rodgers, and Rodgers is often praised for his freelancing and bailing on the pocket to throw on the run. Sacks, like interceptions, are huge negative plays. I'd love to run an analysis at some point on what I'm seeing with (a) passer rating, and (b) adjusted net yards per attempt. Adjusted net yards per attempt takes sacks into account, and the results are very different in terms of perfomance. I'm willing to be a lot of money that any/a has a much higher correlation to both points scored and winning pct.
