    He was:

    8th in QB Rating
    5th in Comp. %
    12th in Pass Yards
    3rd in Yds/Attempt
    T-5th in TDs
    4th in 20+ yd passes

    That is Top 5 in most categories and Top 10 in all but Pass Yards and Interceptions. I can say the list of QBs who had hands down a better season or are better is not very long (Brady, Wilson, Rodgers, Mahomes, Lamar, and Brees are for sure. You could argue Goff, Prescott, Wentz, Ryan, Watson, and Stafford). I think he is a Top 10 QB. That is probably a little high based on my fandom, but at no point did anyone think Pennington showed this level of potential or perform this well.
    Chad Pennington was 2nd in MVP voting in 2008......

    Yeah, this is awkward. In all seriousness, being compared to Pennington isn't a massive disservice at this stage of his career. Dude was a top 10 starter when healthy.

    He tied for 2nd with 4 votes. Peyton won with 32. Basically, he was second as a technicality that someone had to be, but he was nowhere near in consideration for MVP as it was Peyton's pretty much all year. And he was a Top 10 starter 2 years of his career. Let's look at his years before 2008:

    2007: 68.8% Comp. | 1,765 yds | 10 TDs | 9 INTs | 86.1 QB Rating
    2006: 64.5% Comp. | 3,352 yds | 17 TDs | 16 INTs | 82.6 QB Rating
    2005: Injured pretty much all year
    2004: 65.4 % Comp. | 2,673 yds | 16 TDs | 9 INTs | 91.0 QB Rating
    2003: 63.6% Comp. | 2,139 yds | 13 TDs | 12 INTs | 82.9 QB Rating
    2002: 68.9% Comp. | 3,120 yds | 22 TDs | 6 INTs | 104.2 QB Rating


    So he was a Top 10 player twice in 6 seasons. The rest he was average (and that is generous in some years). And that's what you're not getting Chad Pennington was a QB whose success was heavily predicated on others. He was not a QB that generally could be expected to play well consistently. I can assure you, from watching football during those years, nobody was talking about Chad Pennington being a Top 10 QB.

    Pennington had 2 good seasons. Jimmy is already halfway there with a single full year starting. I predict that come next year you will see a second consecutive year better than anything Pennington ever did. But we can table this until then.

    I hope your right. But right now, I can't say Jimmy G is a top 10 QB off of 1 years work. When I say he is Alex Smith or at worst Chad Pennington level, that's right now. A good, capable QB, who relies on others. Which Jimmy is right now. I'm willing to revisit in a years time, of course I am.

    And the irony is Dilfer being an elite private QB coach now. Can teach the next gen to make safe throws and rely on a monster defense....

    Good example, he was certainly carried more than Jimmy. But id still argue that 2015 Peyton was carried more than 2000 Dilfer
