lol....it is like you have never watched him play. He is wildly inaccurate. Bottom line is The Golden Calf of Bristol is just lucky at this stage to of not turned it over significantly more. You are pimping that stat that he make safe throws.....and that isn't the case. He make horrific throws....and lucky for him his bad ones haven't hurt his team much yet.
Bottom line: Denver has the 31st worst receiving corps in the league and we have one of the best. And whether you want to acknowledge it or not, that does kind of tend to have an impact on your yards, completion percentage and TD's as a quarterback.
Throwing an interception on the other hand, knowing when to throw it away and take a sack, or not, has little to do with your receivers. Those things say more about the quarterback.
So if you wanna judge QB's you should start looking at information that's got more to do with them, and not "the help". Or else how would The Golden Calf of Bristol's numbers look with 1500 yards after catch tacked on to his stats?
Bottom line, the NFL's already designed a rating that takes this fact into consideration. It's called QB rating. It does reward QB's not just on stats that have a lot to do with their receivers like completion percentage, yards and TD's but also on things that have more to say about THEM.
And when it comes to that:
#14 The Golden Calf of Bristol 83.9
#19 Cam Newton 81.1
He's a better passer and QB as far as the NFL sees it. And they are smarter than you when it comes to football.
But to answer your question, I haven't watched The Golden Calf of Bristol play every game, because they don't televise it her very often. I'm usually stuck watching some game I don't care about. But I did catch some high-lights, and what I did notice, is that The Golden Calf of Bristol throws accurately a lot of times, and his receivers are terrible. I've seen his receivers drop some pretty great passes.
Which is a far cry from what's going on with the Panthers, where I've seen some terrible passes turned into gold because of Steve Smith. The Golden Calf of Bristol doesn't get this benefit. And Cam Newton is getting 1500 yards worth of benefit.
