A Possible Explanation of Why Dak Played Jekyll and Hyde (and Hope I Find)

Consider the case of two quarterbacks…

Exhibit A: Dak "2022 Jekyll" Prescott…124-164, 76% completion rate, 8.9 YPA, 1,463 Yards, 11 TDs, 3 INT…117.0 Quarterback Rating

Exhibit B: Dak "2022 Hyde" Prescott…121-202, 1,256 Yards, 10 TDs, 11 INT…71.7 Quarterback Rating

The Jekyll numbers would have beaten out Mahomes, Allen, Burrows…every QB in the game, and by no small margin. Exhibit B is Hyde/Zach Wilson territory.

WTH, you ask? Is T-Ro cherry picking games, trying some sleight-of-hand deception?

Permit me to explain:

Exhibit A is the "Jekyll" version of Prescott, the totality of stats when Dak was throwing to Lamb, Pollard, Ferguson, and Hilton.

Exhibit B is Dak and his "Hyde" production, the complete stats when DP threw to Schultz, Gallup, Brown, & Elliott.

I didn’t bother to tally the small contributions made by other receivers with few targets.

I’ve got more to say (of course) but I’ll pause for everyone to digest this much…and share thoughts.
