RIPPEN through week 9

Something I just noticed is that the team with the higher rated quarterback based on RIPPEN won every single game in week 9.  QB rating does a great job too, but it missed one game last week.  Ryan was 102.8 and Romo was 109.3, but Ryan’s Falcons won the game.  This is due entirely to the fact the Romo threw for a touchdown.  Other than that their numbers are nearly identical.  If you take that one touchdown away from Romo, his QB rating would have ben 99.8 with the exact same stats compared to Ryan’s 102.8. Passing touchdowns are so much more about luck and what plays the offensive coordinator is calling.  When evaluating a quarterback, they should probably be largely ignored as is done in RIPPEN.
