McGloin needs credit he deserves

Matt McGloin stats: 6 GS. 118/211 passing. 55.9 Compl %. 1547yds. 8TDs 8INTs. 76 QBR.

Mike Glennon stats: 13 GS. 247/416 passing. 59.4 Compl %. 2608yds. 19TDs 9INTs. 84 QBR.

Geno Smith stats: 16 GS. 247/443 passing. 55.8 Compl %. 3046yds. 12TDs 21INTs. 67 QBR.

At first look we can see Geno Smith had a terrible rookie year primarily due to his abundant turnovers. Many believe Glennon's stats blow McGloins out of the water, however, if you were to multiply his stats by two, McGloin'd would look as so:

12 GS. 236/422 passing. 55.9 Compl %. 3094yds. 16TDs 16INTs. 76 QBR.

Now his stats look much better. His yards surpass Glennon's by far. He also averages 7.3 yds per attempt compared to Glennon's 6.3 ypa.

Quarterbacks stats are often affected by the recievers they are throwing to.

McGloin's recievers included a 2nd year undrafted free agent Rod Streater, a 3rd year undrafted free agent Andre Holmes who has spent his previous seasons on practice squads, and a 3rd year 5th round pick Denarius Moore who is inconsistent and was injured during part of the season.

Glennon had 3x pro bowler Vincent Jackson, who had1224 rec yards compared to Streater with 888 yds and Moore with nearly 700 yds.

If McGloin were to have had a better reciever on the team, his stats could have improved drastically. If you went back and watched the games, you would notice various drops that hit the recievers hands. I'm not saying McGloin is our future, nor am I saying he is the best rookie quarterback. I'm just saying he deserves to be recognized as a pretty good quarterback that can compete with the best of them.
