    Remembering billy volek...RIP..

    10 times billy volek was called on to start for this football team. In 8 of those games he performed admirably. Has kerry collins performed well in 80% of his starts?

    In chronological order these are volek's passing ratings with TD-ints in those 10 starts.

    1. 101.......2-0
    2. 89.6......2-0
    3. 91.9......2-1
    4. 90.5......2-1
    5. 88.9......3-2
    6. 130.6....4-0
    7. 107......4-1
    8. 19........0-2
    9. 87.6.....1-0
    0.72.1.....1-1

    That's an average passing rating per start of 87.8
    A median passing rating per start of 90.5

    In 8 of volek's 10 starts he had more TDs than ints.
    In 4 of volek's 10 starts he didn't throw an int at all.

    He averaged 2.1 TDs a game and .08 ints..

    This is our #3 QB behind kerry collins.. Simple numbers take them anyway you want.

    So gunny...

    All you proved is that collin's poor stats are not an illusion or the result of a few bad games. They are the product of a long career of poor play. Simply playing longer and getting more snaps doesn't make a player suck.

    How many minimal pass attempts should we use to evaluate performance gunny? If vince young throws 10 passes on sunday and completes 8 of them i'm not allowed to say he played well?

    No, actually using 'logic', you can correlate a worse TD/INT ratio and TD per pass and INT per pass due to a higher number of passes.

    you know, the more i look at volek's stats, the more i think he is a terrible fit for this offense.

    in heimerdinger's offense he had a great passer rating(as stat boy already pointed out)

    but in the chow offense he has a qb rating around 77.6. his completion % also took a slight dip, which is odd since there are more short passes.

    What gunny?

    Nooooooooooo..

    If i'm a QB and i throw 1000 passes and have 30 ints what reason would there be to think that i will throw more ints in my next 1000 attempts? There is none.

    Brett Favre has.

    Kurt Warner has.

    I suspect Steve McNairs would have changed majorly based on Les Steckal conservative and Heimerdingers more open offense.

    That fewer passes and Volek being a back up leads to less game film and Volek has played a lot of poor defences and picked them apart easier.

    It does matter and there is reason.

    Big titan...

    Maybe the reason BOTH mcnair and volek were more effective in dinger's offense is that we had better more experienced WRs like oh derrick mason? Plus bennett was healthy all 2004.

    Quality of defense now?

    Ok the jets finished 23rd in scoring defense last season. Collins sucked against that!

    In volek's 10 starts the average ranking in scoring defense of the team he played was 18th. He did have a 100 passing rating against a bills defense that finished 5th in scoring defense in 2003. An 89 rating against the 11th best defense in 04(SD) and a 90 rating against the 13th best defense(bears).
