Re: In their primes: Boomer Esiason or Drew Bledsoe?
I dig these thread Helter, because you are picking good comparisons...and it is the off season, good to look back and catch up on former player stats and what they really were...
If you were comparing like Rice to Galloway or something it would be different...lol
ummm....let's see here
QB Rating 77.1
Passing yards 37,920
QB Rating 81.1
both were 4 time pro bowlers...
Boomer was actually MVP in 88...wow
both are 6'5"....that is interesting, never really thought either were that tall for some reason...
okay here is why you have to take Boomer though:
Bledsoe Post-season records and statistics
4-3 record in post-season
3-3 in the post-season as a starter (3-0 at home)
252 passes attempted
129 passes completed
51.1 Completion Percentage
54.9 QB Rating
1335 passing yards
6 passing touchdowns
12 passes intercepted
21 passing attempts per interception in the post-season
42 passing attempts per TD in the post-season
2-0 in AFC Championship games (in last Patriots appearance came off bench for injured Brady to win at Pittsburgh January 2002)
1 Super Bowl Championship (2001, New England Patriots)
Boomer is also left handed...which can be seen as a + because of the blind side being on the weak side...
