Let's start off this post the same way we did last time: Here is the link to the Tier 1 Voting.
Tier 2 was completed over the weekened, and we saw over 2,200 votes, which was a slight tick down from Tier 3's 2,400, but not too bad overall. As you know, I split Tier 2 into 2 votes, Tier 2A and Tier 2B. The goal of this was to actually make voting easier. Overall, we saw 3 clear cut results as the #12, #11, and #6 spots were runaways where one player took at least 35% of the vote. The other 10 positions were each much closer, and I'm afraid I was forced to use math. Since the voting was so close, I used a formula again to help me get the final rankings of each player. Despite the rankings being split in two, I did the formula calculation as if the were not. The main reason for this was so that Tier 2A, which had fewer players, would not have lower scores than Tier 2B. The formula gave 1 point for each 18th place vote, 2 for 17th, and so on until each 6th place vote got 13 points. Here are the results:
|Rank||Quarterback||12th Place Votes||13th Place Votes||14th Place Votes||15th Place Votes||16th Place Votes||17th Place Votes||18th Place Votes||Score|
|Rank||Quarterback||6th Place Votes||7th Place Votes||8th Place Votes||9th Place Votes||10th Place Votes||11th Place Votes||Score|
The first thing I personally find interesting is just how close the voting was from 18th place to 14th place. Flacco, Prescott, Dalton, Manning, and Winston had average ranks of 15.8, 15.5, 15.4, 15.2, and 15.0. That voting was insanely close, and the final score represents that, as the 1,896 points separating Flacco and Winston is nearly the same as the difference from Mariota to Cousins (1,635). The second thing is we had by far the closest vote for an individual position, as Matthew Stafford edged out Philip Rivers for the #8 spot by just 274 points. While Rivers saw more votes for 6th place (364 to 275), he also had a lot more for 10th and 11th combined (754 to 602). This was enough to shift the position to Stafford, if only just. So with all that said, here are the current rankings for all QBs up to this point.
|Rank||Quarterback||Original Voting Position|
And as always, here are all the previous voting results.
Finally, I've included a second question at the end of today's poll for what voting, if any, r/nfl would like to see next. The poll is optional, but it will give me ideas for the future.
