QB 3rd Down Conversion Rate


worth a look

Never stop being thankful for the Breesus leading through the golden era of Saints football.

To think this was a bit of an off year for him! That, more from pressing more than anything else. And he's still right up there.

What makes me thankful is looking at this list...

Carson Palmer 56 110 166 33.73%
Ryan Tannehill 56 111 167 33.53%
Josh Freeman 60 122 182 32.97%
Mark Sanchez 53 111 164 32.32%
Brandon Weeden 58 123 181 32.04%
Jake Locker 38 84 122 31.15%
Andy Dalton 46 121 167 27.54%
Chad Henne 31 86 117 26.50%

8 guys a full 10% less conversion rate! For regular starters like Andy Dalton that is approaching almost half as many 1st downs.

Yeah, yeah, we have a historically bad D to fix, but dayum, having the top ranked NFL offense 4 of the past 7 years is sumpin we should never take for granted. (2nd this yr btw)

re: QB 3rd Down Conversion Rate


even in a "bad" year Brees is great. The problem this season though was INT's and nothing else, and that can be directly attributed to his trying to do too much and not having Paeyton in his ear

Drew was forced to press the ball into bad situations most of the season. Some were poor throws but alot of those ints were due to trying for the big plays.

But as you said, his bad year is still pretty damn good
