And about the interceptions. The Saints were the worst in the NFL in turnover amounts. And you want to pass up on the guy who throws 2 less interceptions in 106 MORE passes, for the guy who threw 2 MORE interceptions in 106 LESS passes. We don't need any more turnovers, and Young is more prone to turnovers than Leinart.

Yeah, that's true. But he's obviously the more accurate passer who turns the ball over less. And he still had MORE total passing touchdowns than Young.

Young has a great ground game, I won't take anything away from that. He had 12 rushing touchdowns. Leinart had 6. But I still believe that Leinart is the better throwing QB. Would you agree?

Also, one of the reason Leinart probably didn't have more touchdowns is that LenDale White had the most rushing touchdowns in the nation (24), and Reggie Bush had the 8th most (16). These guys obviously took a lot of touches away from Leinart in scoring chances.

Here's another interesting question? Who fumbled the ball more?

Young, as talented as he is, has a fumbleitis problem. He has had problems with the snap all year. Other than his unorthodox throwing style, it is the only knock I've had on him this year.

I like both Leinart & Young, but I do not want another Aaron Brooks with a severe case of fumbleitis.

Conclusion: Draft Leinart.

LEINART'S COMPLETION PERCENTAGE = 65.7%
YOUNG'S COMPLETION PERCENTAGE = 65.2%

Who's completion percentage was better? Leinart.


LEINART'S PASSING TOUCHDOWNS = 28
YOUNG'S PASSING TOUCHDOWNS = 26

Who has more touchdowns? Leinart.

LEINART'S INTERCEPTION TOTAL = 8
YOUNG'S INTERCEPTION TOTAL = 10
The difference is nill between these players stats and if Young did throw 106 more passes would his Int to pass completion ratio be about the same as Leinart's, I think so. I am not getting in the middle of this one though because I don't want either of them.
