Interesting that you mention Favre. Serious question... in today's game, would a high 50's %/low 60% completion rate with a 2/1 TD/Int rate be acceptable for a QB? I'm not so sure. And that was Brett Favre for many years.
Yes, of course there is more into it than that, but just at face value.... 3000+ yards, 59% completion rate, say 28tds and 14 ints.... is that good enough TODAY? If that is Baker, is that good enough? Maybe, maybe it is good enough in this offense with a heavy running game.
Sure seems the way today's pass free game is going, 65% is the bottom acceptable rate, high 60's is better, and you better be better than a 2/1 TD/int ratio too.
Bingo. You accepted shit stats, because largely, quarterbacks weren’t where a team lived and died.
Times have changed.
