Total QBR before this game for each of our QB's.
WOW...how can anyone say EJ was awful prior to injury when his QBR was more than double the next closest guy?
-Won rookie of the week
-Led 4th quarter win by driving field under 2 min with no timeouts against the NUMBER ONE ranked PASS defense in the NFL (Carolina) and 3rd ranked D overall.
-Had us in position to beat Pats but penalties and dropped passes lost us that game
-Put 24 points in 3 quarters on Cleveland (tough D) and was driving for the lead late when he got hurt.
-Played solid in win over SB Champs
-Made some big throws in multiple games showing great touch and great arm strength.
-Has made plays with his legs
-Missed half of preseason as a rookie with injury
-Missed half regular season as a rookie with knee injury (something both physical and psychological to overcome and trust again)
-EJ Wins - 2...Thad and Tuel COMBINED wins - 1 (and Tuel lost a game where EJ was playing well and driving us late for the lead and came out with a pick 6 to seal the loss)
Yes he played bad today and in the Jets game. But he played good enough in the first 5 games he appeared in to show he is a better option than anyone on this team and someone worth developing and letting him play this season out and build on his career.
VERY FEW ROOKIE QB'S COME IN AND LIGHT THE NFL ON FIRE. Patience people...patience. Time will tell what he will or won't be, not this stupid game against the Steelers.
