Without a doubt QB Jazz Lindsey has had a very good season. While Lindsey doesn’t lead the OUA in any specific statistical category – total yards, completion percentage, passing TDs, etc., I can’t help but feel he is having a season worthy of OUA All Star consideration. Critics quickly point to the lack of standout stats. I actually answered some of those critics saying that there are much better measures of QB performance than the raw stats, specifically measures of efficiency like TD:INT ratio – i.e Jazz is #2 in the OUA – or the QB efficiency rating systems used at the NFL, CFL and NCAA levels.
Talk about a well-timed coincidences … yesterday I learn that someone connected with the Allez-les-Bleus blog has been keeping track of the stats of all CIS QBs and calculating them using the NFL’s methodology. And guess what? Jazz Lindsey is the #1 rated QB in the OUA based on the NFL system.
Here is the evidence – Efficacité de passeur des QA- CIS. That title translates as CIS QB Passer Efficiency.
