Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers hate my old QB theory

Back in April I made the case that quarterbacks who play their final college season at age 23+ are overvalued commodities.  Of course they look great during their senior year, they’re outsmarting and outplaying people 2-4 years younger.  After the article was ridiculed, Fantasy Douche came to the rescue with evidence that QB age does seem to matter.  Today, we are revisiting this issue, as I recently noticed Pro Football Reference’s way of counting seasons was to observe a players age on December 31 of that season/year.  Previously I used the baseball method of picking the midpoint of the season (in this case, October 15) to determine age.  Updating my database caused me to reconsider my stance and share a few new names with you.
