I'm just saying his high INT total that year wasn't a true reflection. He probably should have been in the 16-18 range, not the 25 or 26 range he was in.
I'm not saying 16-18 range is good either. I don't think anyone was praising Eli is 2010 as some top 5 quarterback....but his INT total was highly inflated, bottom line.
His INT Total in that year (i don't know others) was inflated. I've seen stats that showed that. Note: He threw a lot of bad balls, but he did have bad luck. It was a running joke that Giant receivers made an effort for some stupid reason to bat balls up in the air.
