Drew Brees league's Most accurate QB in passing last season

Stats Inc has released statistics showing how few Bad passes Brees threw last season. Its released on the patriots blog to show Brady as #21, which is a surprise , but I think its important because it shows just how efficient Brees is ,even though he threw the 2nd most passes in the NFL. I think we got our moneys worth. How anyone thought we would not have the arm strength when he was 1st drafted by the chargers I will never know. It takes a lot of concentration and stamina to throw that many times that accurately.


It turns out that Brady makes a high percentage of bad passes.
I had trouble digesting it myself, so I suspect that many of you will as well. But its true. Brady completely missed his mark short, long or wide on more than 17 percent of his passes last season, according to numbers compiled by Stats, Inc.

Tom Brady was among league's worst in 'bad passes' last season | masslive.com


Here is how he stacks up against the top 31 passers from last season:

1. Drew Brees (61 bad passes/657 attempts) 9.3 percent
2. Tony Romo (68/522) 12.3 percent
3. Philip Rivers (74/582) 12.7 percent
4. Colt McCoy (61/463) 13.2 percent
5. Josh Freeman (74/551) 13.4 percent
6. Kyle Orton (34/252) 13.5 percent
7. Kevin Kolb (35/253) 13.8 percent
7. Eli Manning (81/589) 13.8 percent
9. Aaron Rodgers (70/502) 13.9 percent
10. Matt Ryan (80/566) 14.1 percent
11. Alex Smith (64/445) 14.4 percent
12. Matthew Stafford (97/663) 14.6 percent
12. Ben Roethlisberger (75/513) 14.6 percent
14. Matt Hasselbeck (76/518) 14.7 percent
14. Tarvaris Jackson (66/450) 14.7 percent
16. Andy Dalton (78/516) 15.1 percent
17. Mike Vick (65/423) 15.4 percent
18. Rex Grossman (72/458) 15.7 percent
19. Matt Moore (55/347) 15.9 percent
20. Matt Schaub (47/292) 16.1 percent
21. Tom Brady (107/611) 17.5 percent
21. Jay Cutler (55/314) 17.5 percent
22. Ryan Fitzpatrick (101/569) 17.8 percent
23. Mark Sanchez (97/543) 17.9 percent
23. Christian Ponder (52/291) 17.9 percent
25. Joe Flacco (100/542) 18.5 percent
26. Cam Newton (101/517) 19.5 percent
27. Sam Bradford (70/357) 19.6 percent
28. John Skelton (62/275) 22.5 percent
29. Blaine Gabbert (94/413) 22.8 percent
30. Tim Tebow (71/271) 26.2 percent
31. Carson Palmer (101/328) 30.8 percent

Its why dallas is hopelessly stuck with him. Romo's stats are excellent, but he cant close the deal. As long as Romo is in dallas they will never win a SB.
On another team with a better owner and HC Romo might be elite, but not in Dallas on that Joke wagon.

Now get this.
Drew Brees has more accurate passes than almost everyone's attempted passes. The only exception is Matthew Stafford

Drew Brees (61 bad passes/657 attempts) = 596 accurate passes
v Matthew Stafford (97/663)

oh yeah, didnt even see that UK, thanks. Brees is one of those QB's that will be talked about after his career. Unless he gets 2 more Super Balls. Then people might start watching his stats and find he was the best overall QB of his time.

A throw out of bounds is equal to an interception, in that stat. Which makes it pretty worthless, IMO. There are much more relevant stats that can be used to make the "Drew is the greatest" argument.

Rodgers, 9th most accurate? Behind Romo, McCoy, Orton, Kolb? I'll say again, behind ORTON!? Not even the most ardent anti-Rodgers man would put him behind Orton for accuracy.
