I shared thoughts on the first 8 teams QB situations this morning.
This is going to be the #Thread thread for the next 8...
I'm not sure people realise how good the 2019 Cowboys offense were in yardage terms.
They had the 3rd most offensive yards of any team in the last decade.
Dak led an offense that had more yards than 316 of the 320 teams in the last 10 years.
And then they sacked the head coach because the offense had stalled.
There's a lot of love for Drew Lock floating around.
Especially after Elway came out [eventually] and confirmed he's the guy.
Needless to say - I disagree with Elway.
And given his track record with QBs I don't think that's a bad thing
Remember - the Broncos started Brandon Allen before they rolled Lock out there. And Flacco of course.
That's not a good thing.
Lock eventually scored a 2.21 for me.
Slightly lower than Trubisky, Geno Smith managed as rookies
Which would make Lock a 2.5ish QB.
That's worse than Joe Flacco or Blake Bortles managed in most seasons.
I don't think he's the guy based on what we've seen.
Matt Stafford played minimally last year. But he still threw the ball 291 times - that's more than Ryan Tannehill.
I know he's been there for a long time and people are a bit bored but he's been good.
Level with DeShaun Watson.
He's a top 12 QB pretty easily.
He could be top 6 this year and no-one would be shocked.
He's ageing but he's still a good starter for now and the next handful of years.
Phillip Rivers is obviously in a new place. But at ths stage he probably is what he is.
He scored a 3.21 last season.
Everyone knows I love a moustache.
And Minshew is just FUN.
Specifically his overall accuracy and his 1st down conversion rates [overall and on 3rd down].
He's a YOLO ball guy so you expect this but it's tough to evaluate.
Overall I like him a ton. But he's high risk too.
Mahomes is a stud.
Behind only Peyton Manning in 2013 and Drew Brees in 2011.
Just ahead of 2011 Aaron Rodgers and 2016 Matt Ryan.
That is absurdly good company.
