With this logic one could argue that Alex Smith had nothing to do with their 9 straight wins. If the defense is fully responsible for their losses, then they should also be fully responsible for their wins...right? Or are we being totally biased here.
W/L's always falls on the QBs shoulders.
No it couldn't be argued. Because that is not what I am saying at all. All I'm saying is it is stupid to say a QB won or lost a game. This is football, the ultimate team sport. QB may be the most important position on the team but they sure as heck don't won or lose games on their own.
QBs are not boxers, golfers, or tennis players. They don't play against another one person that plays the same position. They aren't even starting pitchers! Football teams play against football teams. The team with the best QB doesn't always win. The team who's QB plays the best doesn't alwasy win. It is asinine the way so many people say "__insert blank QB here__ is 1-3 against __insert blank QB here__." It makes zero sense in the real world.
