Lies and Damned Lies

I know that AP has a divide on who believes in stats and who believes in what their eyes tell them. We all can tell a winner when we are watching them play. Well Maybe, An Eye test.

All stats are from ESPN. Listed stats are based on the players full career to date. I chose Yards per attempt to even the field on those Pass dominated offenses vs the more balanced Offenses used in the Pro style systems. Some Players are not rewarded for being Running QB's who score TD's with their feet. All TD's are passing TD's. TD's and Interceptions are based on 100 attempted passes for the player involved.

The Grade is crude but maybe effective. Passing TD's per 100 attempts minus Interceptions thrown in those 100 attempts. * underclassmen

QB Games YPA TD's Int Grade System
AJ McCarron * 27 8.6 6.8 1.2 5.6 One Back
Aaron Murray * 41 8.8 8.2 2.7 5.5 Pro
Derek Carr * 26 8.07 6.76 1.5 5.26 Pro
Geno Smith 39 7.98 6.68 1.5 5.18 Spread

Zac Dysert 43 7.19 4.37 3.05 1.32 One Back

I think this is interesting. The average NFL team throws about 100 passes in 3 games. Ball Security of 1.2 Interceptions per 100 would equal 2 Interceptions in 6 games. AJ McCarron would score 13 touchdowns for about two interceptions in 6 games. We all have seen what turnovers do to a team in 2012.
