I got it from someone I follow on Twitter. Regrettably, I do not have a link other than to his tweet.Can you post a link where you found this? I'd be interested to know the number of playoff games for each and factor how it really shakes out. Yes Brady's is higher, but he has been in a shitload more playoff games as well. Just would be interesting. By the way I am a Green Bay guy and don't love Brady, but some of these stats are insane that he has.
Brady has played in 43 playoff games. So he’s starting 1.6 possessions per game in opponent’s territory.
The other three have combined for 65 games. That shakes out to 0.9 possessions per game (each of them averages 0.9 per game, so it’s not like one is insanely low and dragging down their combined average).
Brady gets nearly an extra possession per playoff game in opponent’s territory. When games are decided by a possession, that’s a huge factor.
Not to mention the insane kicking luck Brady has had. Not only were Vinatieri and Gostkowski great, opposing kickers have missed at a high rate against his teams.
