That does not change the fact that its still not a great class to self inflict desperation and make yourself go all in on a rookie high in the draft. That is the point.
We were 5th in the NFL scoring under TT this year...we are not desperate at QB unless we self inflict that desperation by not keeping Taylor. Why not fix the D which is loaded with Elite prospects at the top of the draft and then worry about the QB position next year if TT or Cardale don't step up and cease the job for good.
1) Points is NOT a QB stat. It is a stat that is probably 75 - 80% from the whole offense and the rest from defense and STs. Trying to use it to big up Tyrod doesn't make sense. Our running game was terrific on offense. Our pass game wasn't.
2) I notice you left finance out of the discussion. And for good reason.
However they finished 9th in points per drive and 6th in TDs per drive (including the week 17 abomination). (per Football Outsiders 2016 Offensive Drive Statistics)
I'd be curious where they ranked going into week 17, but I don't feel like digging into cached pages and such right now.
Must've had a lot of game-winning drives and 4th quarter comebacks then, right?
We scored a lot of points against bad teams and didn't score many when it counted.
Clearly the defense was very bad. Equally clearly, the offense was terrific when running and substandard when passing.
