I didn't quote you because I wasn't trying to make it particular post - just what it lead me to look up.

This year, the most telling play was when Schaub rolled out on a play action bootleg, planted, surveyed the field, had all damn day to throw it, and then underthrew Casey by at least a couple yards, for an inexcusable INT. Tell me what stat that falls under.
He had 0 INT's on passes thrown over 30 yds (the other QB's combined for 5).

I remember Brees had 3 of the 5 INT's and then two others had 1 each. Edit - Peyton and Rodgers had 1 each.

I am sorry but at some point the eyeball test says more about the beholder. If these other QB's are so much better at slinging the ball, over the course of 4000 pass attempts it should be reflected. Bottom line, folks are being anti-homers on Schaub and the Texans from Rodgers not even attempting to throw the ball down field as much to Flacco being wildly inaccurate with his big gun of an arm. I would have bet money people's eyes would have said Rodgers threw down field more often and Flacco was more accurate.
