There are tons of stats that people will throw around trying to defend or bury Porter. I think this one is pretty straight forward:
|Quarterback||Record as starter|
|Brian St. Pierre||17-9|
Why does Quinton get the asterisk? Because he started the Wake Forest game…a game the team won without him. If Matt Ryan didn’t bail him out, his record as a starter is 8-8. That might be good at some schools but it places him well below his predecessors and likely successor. QP is a unique example. He played with the same guys as St. Pierre. The same guys as Peterson. And now the same guys as Ryan. There could be a million excuses why the team plays differently when he is in there. Maybe none of them are his fault. At this point, I don’t care if the team responds better because Matt Ryan has naked pictures of them all. What we are doing now is getting by. We need to put the nice guy out to pasture and play the best quarterback.
