That gives him a 1.4 Turnover per Game Ratio
(Granted, it is much worse than 1.4 Turnovers per Game if you factor in his playoff game. But just looking at the regular season it’s bad enough.)
So how does 1.4 Turnovers per Game compare with the other starting QB’s in the league?
Andy Dalton ranks 22nd of 28 starting QB’s who played at least 10 games last season.
That places him in the bottom 25% of the NFL.
The 7 worst:
A Dalton – 1.4
M Stafford - 1.4
M Schaub – 1.5
J Flacco – 1.5
C Palmer – 1.6
G Smith – 1.6
E Manning – 1.8
In all, there were 14 QB’s with a Turnover per Game ratio of 1.0 or less.
11 of those 14 QB’s were playoff QB’s .
Andy Dalton was the lone playoff QB who was not in that group
