77 attempts out of 128 attempts are less than 9 yards accounts for 60% of his passes.. Ouch.
Not sure where you got your numbers. ESPN has:
23 behind LOS
So 67% 10 or less yards in the air
(that may be some of the number difference but this is more indicative of the QB play). But is that ouch?
Big Ben 56%
Would appear not to be. The only two QBs with significantly lower percentages have a combined record this season of 0-6.
