Last season was the safest for QBs
« on: March 27, 2017, 07:10:02 AM »
Interesting byproduct of NFL injury research from 2016: This was the least-injurious season for starting quarterbacks in at least 12 years. Charting games missed due to injury by starting quarterbacks over the past four seasons:

2013: 76.
2014: 77.
2015: 59.
2016: 35.

The average number of games per season missed by starting QBs since 2004: 75.

Although, it's frustrating when the refs make some ticky, tack calls when the QB is hit, it looks like the emphasis on protecting the QBs is working. Let's face it, the "franchise QBs" take up a big percentage of the CAP. Who wants to watch a second stringer in there anyway.
