That's not saying much in today's NFL. Eric Kramer, in 1995 had essentially the best season of any Bears QB, in which he threw for 3838 yards, 29 TD's, 10 Int's, completing 60% of his passes with a passer rating of 93.5. Last year, 12 QB's had a higher passer rating. Last year, 23 QB's had a better completion%. Last year, 9 QB's threw for more yards. Last year, 11 QB's threw 10 Int's or less. The only category where he's top 5 would be TD's where only 4 QB's threw 29 or more. A season like Kramer's 1995, is slightly better than average this year when in that year, he was arguably top 5.
Just for a bit more perspective, Eli Manning is on pace for a season with 4754 yards, 16 TD's, 12 Int's, a passer rating over 90 and a completion percentage over 68... and people think he sucks this year.
Yep. Pretty true. The Bears never had a monster QB. But right now at this time, Trubisky in only his second year, is top ten in the league. Manning.... bottom 10. Trubisky's rating is over 97.
And Manning does suck. 8 games with 8 TDs and 6 INTs. He has a high completion % because over 25% of his passes are to the RBs. He is 1-7 in his starts this year and I bet you would argue that the Giants have better WRs, a better TE, and a better RB than the Bears do. Am I right?
And since when does a projection of 16 TDs and 12 INTs inspire a team to want to keep their QB (how is "that saying much in today's NFL")? Especially when they just paid fat $ to Beckham and are now is sell mode. The giants are a mess.
