How do the stats look when you compare each players first 7 games? I think that is more key than extrapolating stats. Without having a full season, it is impossible to determine how the QB will reallly function.
133-189, 70.3 comp%, 1601 yards, 7 TDs, 3 INTs, 101.75 Rating, 64 carries, 468 yards, 6 TDs
120-192, 62.5 comp%, 1608 yards, 10 TDs, 3 INTs, 99.9 Rating, 42 carries, 238 yards, 2 TDs
Wow. Not bad by either guy.
Lets not get this twisted. I'm not saying Kaep is way better than RG3 or something. RG3 is GOOD. Really good. I'm just saying Kaep is pretty damn good too. Yes, we can make the agrument that Kaep has over a year to learn the offense before his first start and RG3 is a ture rookie, but I could turn around and say that RG3 was far more NFL ready than Kaep and RG3 is playing much more in the Pistol than Kaep is.
Yes, Kaep has a better supporting cast, but that doesn't disqualify all of the numbers.
Either way, I think both of these guys are a part of a new generation at QB.
