    I know what some will say... stats can be manipulated to show what the poster wants...

    But I was looking for information concerning completions of passes that reflect the talent of the QB, the OL, receivers and the offensive game plan of the teams they play for.

    I had the time to look it up and decided to post for your reference. So, some of you already know this info is easy to find...

    I have listed some of the top QBs that are currently starting...Percentage of plus 20 yds completions.

    Name = +20comp/total comp (% of + 20 yds comp), QBR, team record...

    1- MAcNair = 36/190 (19%), 106.3, 9-2
    2- Bulger = 40/237 (18.5%), 79.9, 8-3
    3- Fiedler = 21/116 (18%), 81.5, 8-4
    4- Griese = 38/216 (17.5%), 102.9 (2000 w/Denver)
    5- Green = 38//222 (17%), 94.1, 10-1
    6- Brady = 35/217 (16%), 81.3, 9-2
    7- Culpepper = 28/179 (15.5%), 95.7, 7-4
    8- Hasselbeck, M = 31/208 (15%), 91.6, 7-4
    9- Pennington = 13/95 (13.5%), 98.8, 4-7 (2-3 with him in game)*
    10- McNabb = 25/184 (13.5%), 73.6, 9-2
    11- Manning = 35/265 (13%), 98.8, 9-2
    12- Gannon = 15/125 (12%), 73.5, 3-8
    13- Favre = 27/229 (11.7%), 83.3, 6-6
    14- Garcia = 15/129 (11.6%), 72, 5-6
    15- Collins = 28/262 (10.5%), 71.5, 4-7

    * The Jets have been giving up an average of 25.4 pts/g since Pennington returned, compare to 15.6 pts/g with Vinny.

    IMO it seems that most teams that are .500 or above have QBs with at least 13% +20 yds completions, with the exceptions of Favre...

    I found it interesting...

    GOOOO FIIINZ

    ? How bout actually applauding him for what he did. Who knows he might have had been a bit tired, bored waiting for something and wanted to do that.

    Excellent effort Disnardo. I've also noticed that Jay's yards per attempt (Yds/Att) is rising back close to his 2001 level. In 2001 he and Chambers pushed his Yds/Att to 7.3 which was the 6th best in that category.

    His current Yds/Att is currently ranking him at 8th, so the long ball has returned very close to 2001 form to Miami. I knew he and this passing attack had it in them.

    Thanks for the input everyone...

    Jaj thanks for the help, I believe Chambers84 did not mean anything bad about his remark, but I am glad you got my back :) ...

    Ohall, yes JF's YPA is rising and I am really glad I noticed that, like you stated, he is completing passes that accumulate yards. Whether they are YAC or true over 20+yards passes I don't know...

    When I created this data, I was looking to compare JF's mid-range (+20 yds) accuracy. I was not expecting that it he was just as accurate as some of the top QB in the league, and I don't believe many have noticed that either. Everyone says our long ball is an issue, and it, is with him connecting on 1 of 40+ yds this year...

    Only 9 QB's from the above have connected on 5 or more passes for 40+ yds. The one QB who has the most is McNair (he has 9).

    I mean the QB rating is not something to worship like McNair, Manning, Green or Pennington...

    His attempts are not of a passer type QB...

    His completion % on his attempts are a few points lower than the best QBs in the league....

    But looking at that data, it tells me that he is as accurate or more accurate than some of the top QBs in the mid-range ball.

    Again thanks you all for your feedback and input..

    GOOO FIIINZ

    That is a critical QB thing. If Jay and Chambers keep their rapport up I am sorry AFC, but we are big time contenders cuz we will have a passing game.

    I will be convinced that will happen if we can do it against NE's defense.

    I forgot to put in my original post that Fiedler's current Yds/Att AVG is 7.2.

    Damn skippy. Our last four games will be one giant test for our offense.

    NE is just all-around tough. Nothing more needs to be said about them.

    Philly is very aggressive and dangerous. They are playing great football right now.

    Buffalo, despite their record, still has a stout run defense and some dangerous players on D. They aren't bad at all.

    And the Jets.....while weak in the secondary....have an outstanding pass rushing unit that will challenge our improving offensive line. That game will be a tough one no matter what the records are.

    My dad and I are 7-0 when at Phins games together, and we are going to the Jets games, so that means the Phins will win!
