Yep and I never put any stock in it either.

Look at the other "pocket passing" statue type QB's from last year:

Matt Leinart 56.8% throwing to two Pro-Bowl WR's
Jay Cutler 59.1% playing on what was a playoff team until he took over
Vince Young 51.5% having a sub-par WR core anchored by Drew Bennett and Bobby Wade

Now if they all threw 100 balls Leinart might make 5 more, and Jay 7 more than Vince. I'm not seeing that it's a huge difference personally. Just think there's a whole other dimension to Vince that the other two don't have and it's not like they can work on it, but Vince can work on passing (which he has been doing).
