    How did you come up with the win% statistic?

    To make the comparison fair, wouldn't you also have to take some away from McNairs stats for the benefit he got from carrying the clipboard and plays in 13 games in 1995 and 1996?

    Sorry man, I was sure you listed win% as 51% (completion%). OOPS!

    The winning is the only stat that matters.

    Please, can we have this conversation once Vince has more than one season under his belt?

    I'm not sure we can draw much conclusion from one season as far as wins and losses are concerned. Neither took his team to the playoffs so i see that as even.

    I hope everyone who has commented understands the comparison is simply 97 mcnair vs 06 young and nothing more than that.

    McNair wasn't even a good passer in his prime. I hope vince can throw better than Mcnair did (his last few seasons with us) within the end of this season.

    McNair was a good passer as long as he didn't have to pass it over 5 yds
