Default Re: TJ Yates

#1 - Like many of us have said before, no matter the talent, rookie QBs just do not fare well in the NFL. There are a few rare exceptions; but for the most part the good...no, even the great QBs have performed like, well...like rookies!

#2 - The biggest stat of all for a QB is wins. After that, I would say his QB rating is a pretty big stat, because it shows how efficient he is with the ball. He can have a sorry defense and he could be screwed; he could lack offensive weapons or poor coaching and he's screwed; he could even have poor leadership skills, but he can rise above that and be efficient, which goes a long way towards maturity and his future development (one would hope).

#3 - The chances of TJ Yates making a big splash in the NFL are slim. The chances are even slimmer right now of Yates to take the Texans to the Super Bowl, let alone winning a playoff game. Yet, for what it's worth, I'm still tracking him against his peers.

This time through 4 rookie starts.

Cam Newton (1-3)
1386 Yards
QB Rating = 84.5

Blaine Gabbert (0-4)
665 Yards
QB Rating = 69.2

Christian Ponder (1-3)
856 Yards
QB Rating = 66.9

Andy Dalton (2-2)
868 Yards
QB Rating = 76.9

TJ Yates (2-2)
832 Yards
QB Rating = 80.8

* Bonus * Just for grins
Matt Leinart (0-4)
845 Yards
QB Rating = 68.8


It's interesting and should not be avoided that both Dalton and Yates have more complete teams behind them, albeit Cincy has a more talented group of recievers to throw to over the Texans.
