    I'm sorry but your eyeball test isn't working. :ahhaha:

    "...
    Who has had the biggest payoff the most often?
    Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger leads the NFL with 10 touchdown passes on deep throws, one more than Wilson and Drew Brees.

    Brees has yet to throw an interception on one of these pass attempts. Roethlisberger has two. Wilson has one.

    On the opposite side of the ledger, Deshaun Watson leads the NFL with five interceptions on those passes. Six quarterbacks have four, including Mahomes.

    In all, quarterbacks have 150 touchdown passes and 89 interceptions on these passes, which averages to 4.7 and 2.8 per team respectively.

    yeah i can think of 3 of 5 of those deep ball picks off the top of my head from the 1st 3 games of last year. He was just trying to force it alot early in the season.

    I never said he was the best. He has made some mistakes but I can’t act like it was all on him. O’Brien might be one of the worst coaches in the nfl. The fact Brady and now Deshaun has made him look decent is amazing but yeah Deshaun is one of the best deep throwers. I actually watched the games. Stats never tell the full story

    Who calls him the MJ of football? Dabo (his former coach) along with his fellow NFL peers.

    Lol the fact you didn’t know that speaks volumes of your football intelligence. Maybe you should pay attention to the game instead of blabbering.

    One person on record has called him that. "They" don't call him that. Any average NFL fan would be naive to that which you speak of. Few people actually call him that.

    Meh. Lies, damn lies and statistics, etc. End of the half chucks, and losing your burner in Fuller will do that to the deep ball.

    https://nextgenstats.nfl.com/stats/passing#completion-percentage

    #8 Deshaun Watson @ 68.3% (Roethlisberger is #13, Wilson is #20, Brees is #1)
    #23 in interceptions (Roethlisberger is #1, Wilson is #30, Brees is #25)
    #5 in Completed air yards (Roethlisberger is #35, Wilson is #3, Brees is #18)

    I'm not sure I understand the other guy's stats either:

    Notice a problem?

    The fact that you believe the word of one coach, no matter how good, speaking about a rookie he wants to see drafted high, because that makes his stock as a coach go up, before that rookie has really been tested speaks volumes to your naivety.

    Can't be the Jordan of football until you've won multiple championships.

    Until then its just an athletic comparison no different than what people said about Vick.

    I can agree with this...although Jordan clearly announced he had "next" when dropped that 60 on Boston's head in the playoffs in 85 i believe. I feel like DW4 did that his rookie year in that 7 games of brilliance. Otherwise, i agree with you though.
