Clearly Prescott has been clutch, but how can we measure his total value and compare it to that of others around the league?
Many will point to Total QBR as an all-encompassing barometer of quarterback success. Total QBR has value, but because it is expressed on a per-play basis, it is not the best measure of a quarterback¡¯s total impact.

There is another metric, however, that might be an even better gauge of a quarterback¡¯s value to his team. QB points added accounts for both efficiency and usage. The number associated with this statistic represents the number of points on the field a quarterback contributes over the course of the season, beyond what would be expected of an average quarterback (one with a QBR of 50) with the same number of plays.
It makes sense that a quarterback who both is efficient and has a high usage rate would receive greater consideration for the NFL MVP award, and such quarterbacks have! Seven of the past eight quarterbacks to win MVP ranked in the top two in that statistic in their award-winning seasons.
“Every day, he jumps the line and starts running,” receiver Walter Powell says. “We let him get his catch on. It’s like, ‘There you go, big guy. Now go on'” — Powell makes a shooing motion with his hand — “‘and go do your own thing.'”
What’s most striking about Incognito is the level of sheer earnestness. The engine has no governor. He attacks every drill with the choppy steps vital to his profession. Legs underneath him to maximize balance and force, his feet constantly moving, his head up, he’s every offensive line coach’s Platonic fantasy. That’s the message: It means so damned much to this guy.
“Here’s what Richie’s done here,” offensive line coach Aaron Kromer says. “He’s come in and been the hardest worker on the practice field. He sets the tempo. He’s shown the young guys how to practice hard. Doing drills, he’s finishing to the point where you’re like, Whoa. You look at the other guys and say, ‘Just do it like that.’ And just by virtue of other guys paying attention to what he’s doing, it really helps the culture of the room.”
