    College starts of QBs drafted by our FO

    I recently read an article (frustrated by not finding it again) that showed the correlation between number of college starts and success in the NFL. My memory is that approximately 65% of QBs with over 22 starts, two full college seasons, succeed and approximately 65% of QBs with fewer than 22 starts fail. Both of the QBs drafted by our current FO have over 40 starts, more than 3 full season of experience.

    Chad Henne 47 starts
    Pat White 42 starts

    Related Information

    Chad Henne (47 starts, 59.7 percent completion rate)
    Matt Ryan (32 starts, 59.9 percent completion rate)
    Joe Flacco (26 starts, 63.4 percent completion rate)

    Pat White or not I am still on the Henne Bandwagon, I love how he always looks so pissed off. Would love to see him leading an offense in the 4th quarter of a meaningful game. To see what he is made of.

    Some of the greatest moments I have of Marino was during the fourth quarter watching him command the offense. He had this intensity about him, the look he would give receivers after they dropped a ball or missed a pattern was stonecold.

    I am not saying he is going to be Marino but for some reason I see character similarities in both. I guess I am just dying to see that intensity again from our QB spot.

    henne will be great trust me. his struggles at michigan were caused by bad defense and an over conservative coach that didnt open up the offense until his last game. there is now reason carr shouldnt have gotten a nc when hart and henne where there, but outside of the 11-1 season they never had a defense that was worth having

    I think the article you're referring to was either from Dr. Z or TMQ on the ESPN website. I read it too about a week ago.

    Anyone care to look that stat up from an historical perspective with respect to Parcells' past picks?

    I think it was the AFC East blog by Tim Graham where he listed the QBs drafted this year and White had the most starts altogether with another QB whose name I can't remember. It seems like a pattern for this FO. I'm fine with it.

    Gameday experience is invaluable. I hear on NFL network yesterday someone talking along the same lines. It was more about QB's who play 4 years collegiately vs. players who declare for the draft early. The success rates were night and day.


    It takes discipline to not formulate opinions about something WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS.

    That is why buttfumble will be a bust and white/henne will be studs.

    I tried to lookup the number of games started before 2000, and it is very difficult. Here are the picks.

    1991 Scott Zolak, QB 4th round Maryland
    1993 Drew Bledsoe, QB 1st round Washington State
    1994 Jay Walker, QB 7th round Howard
    1997 Chuck Clements, QB 6th round Houston
    2001 Quincy Carter, QB 2nd round Georgia
    2007 Chad Henne (47), QB 2nd round Michigan
    2008 Pat White, (42) QB 2nd round West Virginia
