Should dome QBs have an asterisk by their season stats?

Afterall, due to their delicate features and lack if actual grit, they play indoors over half the year. No wind, no rain, no extreme heat, no cold.

Maybe lump their stats in with some of the arena league QBs?

Astroturf is bad for concussions and for the impact through knees and ankles. The weight of a 300 pound man is the same on any surface.

Personally, I think it is a legit question.

Where is easier to throw the ball? In a dome or in Chicago?

It certainly is a huge advantage, hope the Saints enjoy the climate-controlled confines of Lambeau field... (assuming the don't get bounced by a wildcard team again)

Interesting thought. I had never really even thought about that.

It definitely is an advantage. What would Brees had done this year during the Monsoon at the J-ville game?

Well Marino did have to fight the frozen tundra of South Florida.

Let's also take into consideration that Brees has thrown the ball 120 more times than Aaron Rodgers, yet only managed 444 more yards.

Also had 58 more passes than Marino...
