How good was Stafford this season



Well lets see by looking at Pro-Football site I sorted all of the QBs and just ran with the numbers for each season.

Attempts (663) - 3rd (Bledsoe 691 '94)

Completions (421) - 5th (Brees 468 '11)

Completion % (63.5) - 125th (Brees 71.2 '11)

Yards (5038) - 5th (Brees 5476 '11)

Touchdowns (41) - 7th (Brady 50 '07)

QB rating (97.2) - 85th (Rodgers 122.5 '11)

Yards per game 314.9 - 7th (Orton 314.9 '11) w/5 games, Brees at 342.3 '11

Here are the single season records Stafford has broken for the franchise.

Completions, Old was Kitna 372 '06

Attemps, Old was Kitna 596 '06

Completion %, Old was Kitna 63.3 '07

Yards, Old was Mitchell 4338 '95

Touchdowns, Old was Mitchell 32 '95

Interceptions he did not make it however there is a critera that should be looked at as to who is qualified to be a leader. There is only 9 seasons in which a Lions QB started 16 games. In that small list Danielson is the leader at 11 in '80. However Batch had 6 in 98 when you expand the list to 12 games started. That provides 25 seasons to look at.

Passer rating, Old was Mitchell 92.3 '95 however Krieg is at 101.7 with only 7 games started

Yards per game, Old was Mitchell 271.1 '95

That is just a few records he owns.
