Some translate to the NFL some don't. That's nothing new. And I never said that's the only thing. I just stated Colin was more efficient even in college as well.
this little exercise was based more on your extreme reliance on bellwether stats than anything else. last year it was YPP, this year it's INT %. you abandoned the former when the numbers didn't wash anymore and have clearly moved on to something else.
Btw, are you seriously going to compare Manning's college int% playing in the 90's to today's new age quarterbacks? That's pretty funny.
manning was one example amongst many, many others which are well within the common era. why is it that people accuse you of cherry picking again?
All that's missing there is Teeray to bring up Terry Bradshaw's 5.4% from the 70's and 80s?
oh yeah, that's what people mean by cherry picking.
i say that because teeray spent a lot of time systematically dismantling all of your arguments last year when you were posting a lot (he looks to have continued doing so from what i've seen) and here you are bitching about him bringing up terry bradshaw.
Please stop discounting turnovers % just because your loverboy sucks at it. You don't have to know a whole lot about football to know that's still one of the top 3 most important stats that directly affects winning and losing.
pointing out the gaping holes in whatever inane mindfug that you're trying to pass off as a cogent logical argument is hardly "discounting turnovers %".
of course turnover percentage is an important stat genius. that's an unbelievably mundane statement-like john madden back when he was on monday night football obvious. it's just not uniformly consistent and isn't a one-size fits all stat as my posts on the previous page showed. there are some damn good NFL quarterbacks, many of whom have rings, that put up INT percentages in college that fly in the face of the argument you were trying to make about kaepernick and smith.
there are a lot of good or even great quarterbacks now that turned the ball over a shitload when they were young starters in this league. of course people always bring up peyton manning but his more-decorated brother is a great example as is drew brees and, oddly as safe to say as it is now, alex smith. brees threw 29 TDs to 31 INTs over his first three seasons. Manning was an even 44 INTs to 44 TDs when year three wrapped.
also nice heteronormative insult. looks like namecalling to me which is highly frowned upon. mods, can we get some bans in here?
