Excerpt: "We’re back at it again with a deep dive into the PFF Database as we continue to reveal a plethora of numbers regarding pressure and its effect on the quarterback. To recap, in the last few months we’ve looked at pressure’s impact on the passer from different angles (https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2013/04/15/examining-pressure/2/) and from that data, drew the conclusion that the left tackle might be overrated (https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2013/04/29/examining-pressure-are-left-tackles-overvalued/). From there, we broke it down by quarterback and revealed the league’s best and worst when pressure comes from different places (https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2013/05/29/examining-pressure-qb-play/). Now it’s time to take the next step and look at “pressure profiles” for every quarterback in the league.

As always, sample size caveats apply in some cases, but the numbers draw from our five years of data going back to 2008. There are certainly trends for some quarterbacks, while others are a bit more scattershot in their performance when pressure comes from different angles.When looking at the numbers, keep in mind that the PFF Grade is the best indicator of a player’s performance, as we isolate the quarterback’s impact on every single play. If he throws a wide receiver screen that goes for an 80-yard touchdown, the numbers will look pretty, but the QB is credited with the same grade he would earn if it was stopped for no gain. Similarly, a perfectly thrown pass that should be a first down but is dropped and intercepted will likely earn a positive grade despite the ugly INT in the stats. All of the stats are nice to get some perspective, but PFF Grade always trumps as more reliable.With that said, let’s take a look at the quarterbacks from the NFC East and how they fare under pressure.

Eli Manning, New York Giants

Strength: Left side pressure
Weakness: Middle, right side pressure

Perhaps the poster child for the exaggerated importance of left tackle, Manning excels when pressured from the “blindside” but things take a turn for the worse when he faces it from right tackle. No quarterback shows as drastic a difference in performance in this area and it certainly flies in the face of conventional wisdom. Manning’s trends go beyond just the tackles as he grades positive against left guard pressure while pulling a negative when it comes through center and right guard. Right side pressure is the way to get to Manning.

Being one of the least sacked QBs in the past decade, I think "weakness" might be a little strong.
