If he plays well, makes good decisions (and makes them timely), has accuracy, and leads the team well regardless of the outcomes, he should stay. If he plays poorly, makes bad decisions, and does not lead well, then they should let him go.
I don't like assigning specific numbers in stats, as a QB could so easily have exaggerated stats because they are constantly playing from behind and have to abandon the run. I don't like saying he has to win x number of games, because it takes more than one player to win, in fact, there are three units and he only plays with one. But you should be able to watch his play and see that he is contributing to the team in a significant and positive way.
I just hope he doesn't have another year where he is slightly better, continuing to improve, but still at a slow pace. He has improved over his tenure and moved towards where he needs to be, but he needs to expedite that process and get there. If he can do that, they should give him an extension.
