I thought this might be an interesting way to look at the expectations that may be had for this years rookie QB's looking forward, if we compared them to some proven Elite QB's in the league in their rookie seasons, or first season with at least 15 games (For Elite). The comparisons are interesting.
Tom Brady 15 Games, 413 Att, 264 Comp, 63.9 Pct, 2,843 Yds, 18TD, 12Int, 86.5 Rating
Peyton Manning 16 Games, 575 Att, 326 Comp, 56.7 Pct, 3,739 Yds, 26TD, 28Int, 71.2 Rating
Drew Brees 16 Games, 526 Att, 320 Comp, 60.8 Pct, 3,284 Yds, 17TD, 16 Int, 76.9 Rating
Brett Favre 15 Games, 471 Att, 302 Comp, 64.1 Pct, 3,227 Yds, 18TD, 13 Int, 85.3 Rating
Matthew Stafford 10 Games, 377 Att, 201 Comp, 53.3 Pct, 2,267 Yds, 13TD, 20 Int, 61.0 Rating.
Mark Sanchez 14 Games, 348 Att, 188 Comp, 54.0 Pct, 2,381 Yds, 12TD, 20 Int, 63.2 Rating
Josh Freeman 9 Games, 259 Att, 143 Comp, 55.2 Pct, 1,683 Yds, 9TD, 16 Int, 61.0 Rating.
The sample sizes for Freeman and Stafford are smaller, but they are formidable.
The one promising factor for all three QB's is that the TD/INT rate for all of the QB's was not tremendous, just not quite as bad as they are for the '09 rookies, the ratings are also about 10.0 off for all of the 3 Rookies. You make your own judgements.
Who out of the three going by stats has the most potential? and do any of them seem to have the potential for elite status?
