For me, I saw several of these type passes that would likely be INTs in the NFL. I have also noticed that while Bridgewater is accurate, his ball placement is suspect, which could also be more of a problem in the NFL.
To clarify my post that you quote is from my prior post #44 & is about McCarron not Bridgewater.

I do agree with your POV on TB.

As someone stated, 70% doesn't mean you're accurate. I watch mariotta and unless the dude is running free,he's not letting it go. Go rewatch the stanford game when they re-routed the wrs and he wouldn't throw guys open. Bridgewater has to throw guys open,he doesn't have a choice.
Well then let's close the topic as Texans will just have to take him.

Not sure you will try to understand, but...

It is not an analogy.

Precision and accuracy are math and science concepts for evaluating data. Accuracy is a measure of nearness to a known or predicted value. Precision is a measure of repeatability. They can be applied to any data and the data types/sources can be wildly disparate (not analogous to each other). The causes of the inaccuracy or imprecision will naturally be specific to the data source, i.e. the causes of inaccuracy in hitting a golf ball or a baseball will differ but the accuracy of either can be evaluated and similarly precision in each. Data is commonly represented graphically such as on an X-Y graph. A "target" is nothing more than an X-Y graph with circles depicting equidistant points from center axis.

If you don't find the distinction worth discussing, fine, but it exists and is applicable regardless.

Yes I do understand, I always try to err on the side of math and science, primarily because they are usually exact. In this case I think you might be over thinking it. Paralysis by over analysis. This comparison is more of an art than science. You can take 10 QBs of different size and makeup and give them all the same coaching. Teach them the same footwork, release, timing and you will still likely get 10 different completion % and ball placement grades. I'm sure you will disagree.....
