Found a pretty good read concerning QB's under pressure and how they performed under that pressure.... There is one QB of interest that ranked as the #1 QB under pressure. :)

I LOVE pressured passing grades, they go

Eli: 9.8
Brees: 8.9
Cam:3.9
Rodgers:2.1

Eli is INSANELY good under pressure

Interesting stats, I knew he wasn't getting great protection last year but that is wild!

Eli is INSANELY good under pressureHe is insanely good but what concerns me most about those numbers is that he was pressured about 20% more (244 times) than the next most rushed QB (208 times). Worse, he was pressured 50% more than guys like Rodgers and Brady who were rushed about 150 times. Our OL needs to get its stuff together quickly.

What I find rather hilarious is all the talk about Sanchez and his offensive line though. If anyone listens to ESPN NY, all you heard on the air the last few days is how much pressure Sanchez faced the past year, and how no QB would have been successful behind that line. He wasn't pressured nearly as much as people made it seem....he just has absolutely 0 pocket presence.

It's great that Eli responds well to pressure. I still prefer the OLine do it's job a lot better this season than last.
