Washington Post: Griffin Is One of the Biggest Upgrades of the Decade

This week's article at the Post looks at the biggest upgrades and (declines) at QB of the past 11 years.

The biggest year-to-year decline belongs to the Vikings and Brett Favre. Favre’s 2009 season marked an increase in quarterback EPA of 152 points. But as Favre giveth, Favre taketh away. In 2010, the Vikings’ combination of Favre, Joe Webb and Tarvaris Jackson sunk Minnesota with a drop in EPA of 212 points. Favre’s late tears with Green Bay were also a roller coaster. His decline from 2005 and his resurgence in 2007 both rank among the biggest swings of the recent decade.

Also check out this companion post that features each team's year-by-year improvements and declines at QB.
