Thank you New Orleans Saints for beating the Tacks
 
Greetings,

Long time Saints fan (since 1983) - my second favorite team, right after the Houston Texans. To me, it's fitting that you helped us clinch the playoffs for the first time in Texans history by beating the Titans today.

I know we would have made the playoffs anyway, but still...the Saints made it easier, and it was today, not a week or so down the line.

Plus, I'm sure you guys appreciated us beating the Falcons last week.

All I have to say is, even though you beat us this year by finding the weakness in our defense (Kareem Jackson), no hard feeling. I hope y'all get the chance to whip the hell out of the Packers!

Go Texans!
Go Saints!

The Failcons losing to a 3rd string QB is a win too!

Thanks for beating the failclowns last week, that really helped us. Tj Yates is doing enough to scrape out wins lol

Congrats on getting the playoff berth. Kubiak should be COTY IMO.

I'd love for the Texans to knock the Steelers or the Patriots out of it.

Well, Yates is not a 3rd string QB anymore. And though he shows a lot of signs of a rookie QB with not many reps. i.e. telegraphing his throws, not catching a few open guys, etc, his play is still miles above many rookie QBs over the last few years, and beyond.

If early looks are anything to go by, he might just be the 3rd best QB taken in last years draft, behind Newton and Locker.

Time will tell if he is just a placeholder until Schaub gets better or not, however, here are some stats for you - Rookie QB who have started (although it's not comprehensive, it's interesting, nonetheless):

2011 Draft Class

#1 Cam Newton: 24-37, 64.9%, 422, 2 TDs, 1 INT, Rate 110.4

#10 Blain Gabbert: 12-21, 57.1%, 139, 1 TD, 1 INT, Rate 73.3

#12 Christian Ponder: 13-32, 40.6%, 219, 2 TD, 2 IT, Rate 59.2

#35 Andy Dalton: 10-15, 66.7%, 81, 1 TD, 0 INT, Rate 102.4

#152 TJ Yates: 12-25, 48%, 188, 1 TD, 0 INT, Rate 86.8


2010 Draft Class:

#1 Sam Bradford: 32-55, 58.2%, 253, 1 TD, 3 INT, Rate 53.1

#25 Tim Tebow: 8-16, 50.0%, 138, 1 TD, 0 INT, Rate 100.5
