    A recent study by West Coast Shaving shows that the NFL's best quarterbacks play better with beards.
    In the name of science, and presumably beard oil sales, the company compared five of the League's best playcallers' 2013 quarterback ratings with and without facial hair.
    They found that every one of them played substantially better when rocking a beard.

    Andrew Luck, the most famous bearded QB they looked at, saw his QB rating skyrocket from 73 when clean shaven to 88.06 when bearded, an improvement of 20.63%.
    Aaron Rodgers, darling of the 2014 NFL season and holder of an insane 106.4 career QB rating, played 17.12 % when bearded than not.
    Though these researchers couldn't establish causation here, another recent scientific study in Behavior Ecology indicates that bearded men appear more aggressive and dominant than clean-shaven men. Theoretically, this might be affecting play, with beards either intimidating rival teams, or possibly helping to bolster a player's confidence in his own standing and aggression.
    Either way, it's clear that beards aren't just mere decoration.
    Now, how the heck can Jets fans get Geno Smith to grow a beard?

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
