    NFL Notice who is missing from the TOP 10?

    Some quarterbacks have really fallen victim to their receivers dropping balls. Brandon Weeden had a horrid opener, but since then it’s tough to make any summary judgments on him because his receivers have played so poorly. The same can be said for Blaine Gabbert. It’s tough to expect a young quarterback to succeed right away when there are so few offensive weapons around him.

    Looking at the foot of the list one can see how big an impact accuracy percentage has on an offense. The average points per game of the Top 10 is over five points higher than that of the Bottom 10. Some might not expect Joe Flacco to be this low, as his traditional completion percentage puts him 18th. Unfortunately, Flacco hasn’t evolved into an accurate quarterback so far this year and has really been helped by his receivers’ decreased drop rate. Another guy that hasn’t made the strides his team was hoping for is Mark Sanchez. Sanchez’ sub-50 completion percentage isn’t helped out much here as he is only on target 60% of the time. Jets fans calling for Tim Tebow should know, the only percentage we’ve seen lower than Sanchez’ this year was Tebow’s 2011 Accuracy Percentage.

    I feel sorry for RG3 right now. It seems like his targets are dropping 2-3 pinpoint passes each week--often at very crucial points in games.
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.
