You probably already know the answer to this, but it's always fun to see Joe Burrow's name firmly on top of the list for the best quarterback passing seasons in College Football from 2015-2021.

I laugh when Bama fans try to say Jones had a better 2020 than Burrow in 2019.
This just proves how much better Joe’s year was. Which is a crazy argument to begin with because Jones had a incredible season himself.

2020 and 2021 seasons should have asterisks by them. Many teams had players out for covid protocols. Many teams had star players either sit out those seasons or opt for the draft all together. Not really impressive to beat up on teams that weren't at full strength.

Only 2020 season. Not 2021

A team can have 80 national championships, but only ONE team can be the greatest team of all time. 2019 LSU Tigers.

Why stop at 2015 ? lets see the last 50 years where Joe ranks.

Joe was pinpoint with his accuracy but he had some excellent talents to throw to. They deserve some of the credit.

Why stop at that? He has the greatest season in the history of CFB for a passer. Like the dates don’t matter. He’s #1 all time.

So Joe Burrow and then everyone else

Bailey Zappe of Western Kentucky, in 2021, had the 6th best overall score in this group.
But, somehow, lost the Heisman to a QB who is not even on this list.

Bryce Young is number 15 on the list.

Surprised that Justin Fields in 2019 didnt make it. I remember he had 50 total TDs and 1 INT at the Heisman ceremony.

Clicking through to the link shows that 2019 Fields is #24 at 138.7. I am a bit surprised by that.

Even more shocking is that Trevor Lawrence isn't in the top 25 at all.

Fields and Lawrence both were overhyped...

Burrow is further ahead of Jones than Jones ahead of the #8 QB, Okie State's Mason Rudolph in 2017.

Totally amazing.

GEAUX TIGERS!

Annnd these numbers are representing what exactly? What is an EPA? I’m sure no one here knows either. Lots of folks on his twitter are asking for explanations…he hasn’t answered.

I know Joe Burrow has a higher epa than Mac Jones and Tua Whateverhisnameis. That much we all can see.

Still think that 2020 season is BS. Bama got extremely lucky in that year where many teams had all kinds of problems with opt outs and covid and games not being played. They were one of the ultra rare team that had surefire top 2 round players return for their senior years.

"Lucky" that their players were committed and not quitters? Interesting assessment.

Yea, sorry our players were committed? Sound like a sore loser.

Lucky in that moment of their players missed games for Covid or contact tracing. Almost like they didn’t really follow the rules

It would be safe to say that the 3* recruit from Ohio has the best EPA of all time in CFB. And where did he shine the best? Playing for the shrimp boat deckhand...

JB9 was a solid 4* QB out of High School.

Yup. Bama fans do that all the time. You'd think they'd get fed up of eating dead Bear.

I won't bash Mac Jones. The kid could play; he earned and deserves to be recognized for his fantastic season. But what Joe and that offense did in 2019 against THAT competition was other-worldly.
