I was just very curious about how Brady Quinn would stack up against the quarterbacks taken from this year's first round (Ryan and Flacco) and from last year (Russell).
Quinn only started two games, so I only took the other quarterbacks stats from their first two NFL regular season starts.
I was very surprised that Quinn is averaging 35 attempts per game. I thought he would only throw about 20 a game and average at least a pick a game.
I'm not a big stats guy except for one stats, and that is this stats:
Through their first two games started,
Joe Flacco is (2-0)
Matt Ryan is (1-1)
Brady Quinn is (1-1)
JaMarcus Russel is (0-2)
I think that when it's all said and done and when this guys retire 10 years from now, Joe Flacco will win a Superbowl within the next three years (3 years left remaining on the Ray Lewis Era). Brady Quinn and Matt Ryan will be a Hasselbeck/Romo kind of player (Getting to the playoffs annually but also falling on their faces annually). Russell, is still a big question mark. I think he'd be a decent quarterback like Matt Schaub but just not in Oakland.
Of course, it's too early to call anyone the next Joe Montana or the next Ryan Leaf. Lots of factors are to be considered.
Another stats not included is their salary. Quinn's, even though is still high, is not as high as the other three.
10 years from now, who will be the better quarterback?
