Well to be fair and to my main point I think we can agree that Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, and Drew Brees are the 6 best QBs in the NFL right now.
Stop looking at one exception of a HOF quarterback to make your point, when 99% of reality aligns with what I am saying.
The era of the gunslinger is over. Farve was the last remaining dinosaur of that era. When Aaron came in they won a ring with the same team. When Farve saw that and stopped slinging it he had his best year at 40 with the Vikings by becoming an efficient passer.
Sure, you can win in an inefficient manner. In technical terms, it's not impossible. It's just not realistic. It's also not practical, and definitely not sustainable. You certainly can't do it when you don't have the Bears defense to save you. And why would you want to? Why would you want to win DESPITE your quarterback's play? You want to become the Jets?
The reality is we don't have an efficient passer. We have a gunslinger in an era of sharp shooters. It just doesn't work.
In Peyton Manning 4th year as a starter he had an INT% of 4.2%
In Eli Manning's 4th year as a starter he had an INT% of 3.8% and in 2010 it was 4.6%
In Big Ben's 3rd year as a starter he had an INT% of 4.9%
In Drew Brees' 2nd year as a starter he had an INT% of 4.2%
Tom Brady is the exception to the rule.
Aaron Rodgers didn't start until his 4th year in the league.
So 4 of the top 6 had a year worse than what Cam is doing right now.
So my major overlying point is that this is part of the maturation process that virtually every QB not names Tom Brady goes through. Cam is no different and it is part of the process of developing as an NFL QB.
If his INT% is still this high in 3 years then you may be right. But right now I think it is foolish to make any grand statement that it is anything other than what it is. A young QB developing.
