In high-leverage situations (plays with clutch value above 1.0), Rivers was just slightly above average, with a QBR of 56, whereas his QBR was 80 in blowout conditions. Manning, on the other hand, was more efficient. QBR estimates that Manning's completions added 107.0 points to the Giants last year, or 2.67 points per 100 passing yards; Rivers' completions added 108.5 points, or 2.30 per 100 yards.

Eli has also always appeared better in high-leverage situations, but I think it has more to do with him usually looking better in the no-huddle than he does normally. Giants fans have been begging for more no-huddle for years.
no one else cares about any of that, so epi has his gimmick get in on it:

72off: haha, because iggymcfiy made a terrible post in the bad posters thread. the best poster gimmicks are the ones who drop into a thread where they would normally post and post something that looks only slightly exaggerated.

otoh the real iggymcfly has become something of a parody of himself anyway (at least when it comes to ranking football teams).

Llewelyn Moss: Yeah, I'm going to bring you something, alright. I decided to make you a special project of mine. You ain't going have to come looking for me at all.
[Moss hangs up the phone]

im under the impression epi kept it to himself so i do think it is kinda weird to make jokes without truly being able to share them with others.

regardless, i dont think that little back and forth is evidence of some elaborate setup. do you ever joke around with friends and play off one another and know where the other is going and all that? you make it seem complicated (as does tup and 72o) but its not and the reality is that almost all of the forum interactions between skypers develop organically.

Hmm, okay this does make it sound less weird. Still though, it's just pretty desperate on their part - trying to manufacture reactions when people had tired of their trolling enough to ignore them.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Poster Wake, and Forum Discussion

People thinking that was some contrived plan are way off base. First of all, TuT and epi don't really like each other very much. Also, no one had any idea that the iggy gimmick was epi. In fact I'm really suprised he could even pull that off.

whether or not it was contrived, tut and epi loved trolling people about WIM more than any other posters on this forum.

second, the iggymcfiy account had what 7 posts outside of this thread, one of which was terrible. if you read them all at once it's pretty obvious who it is.

Even though WIM does exist, its not quantifiable, so statements about WIM are essentially unfalsifiable. So basically, I agree with with your assessment that they used this to there advantage when it came to trolling and the conversation would turn into one persons eye test vs another. So ya, those type of conversations turn into aids fast.

However, I think its hindsight bias to say that its obvious who the iggy gimmick was, and id be surprised if a decent amount of people knew about it before it was outed (im 99% sure it wasnt leaked to anyone on skype either).
