@10lbbass I know completion percentage generally goes down with longer throws. However, that does not correlate perfectly all of the time. Stafford had higher intended air yards (10.7) than Winston, yet he had a completion percentage of 64.3 vs. 60.7, and had a DVOA ranked 4 vs. 25. Interestingly, Stafford had less average time to make a throw.
Tannehill had a little less average intended air yards at 9.6, but his completion percentage was 70.3, with a much better interception percentage.
One might argue that Winston’s interceptions were caused by him throwing into tight windows. Not true. Stafford had the highest aggressiveness percentage. Fitzpatrick was ranked 4, Tannehill 6. Winston was ranked 18.
Finally, in average time to throw, Winston ranked 15, with more time than Brees, Fitzpatrick, Garoppolo, Wentz, Trubisky, Rivers, Brady, etc. to throw the pass.
Some members are probably going to say the above stats are cherry-picked, and stats are meaningless. However, the above stats are troubling to me as a Bucs’ fan.
That statement will make to much sense for the Winston Apologist Association of Tampa Bay (WAATB) to understand.
Kenntak, you’re wasting your time trying to convince 10lbbass. Winston could have 50 ints and if he threw for 6000 yards and 40 TDs, 10lbbass would still want him as our QB.
