You can adjust for league-wide averages!
League wide averages include terrible QBs that are irrelevant in a discussion of QBs that are capable of winning a Super Bowl.
For example, Drew Brees is the the 13th rated QB in the NFL, with a rating of 90.7. You know where that would have ranked him 20 years ago? 2nd in the league. There's been a significant change in the passing game in the last 20 years. Alex is stylistically similar to Aikman, but Aikman was a much better QB.
The fact that you have to go back at least 10 years to find an example of a QB that's comparable to Alex that won a SB should speak volumes.
