Default a tale of four quarterback careers

a tale of four quarterback careers.

completion % - 60.3 - 60.8 - 65.3 - 59.8

touchdown % - 4.5 - 5.2 - 5.7 - 4.3

interception % - 3.0 - 2.5 - 2.7 - 1.9

passer rating - 84.1 - 89.5 - 97.1 - 88.9

the guy in column 1 threw 7 more interceptions than games he played.
the guy in column 2 threw three less interceptions than games he played.
the guy in column 3 threw 39 less interceptions than games he played.
the guy in column 4 also threw 39 less interceptions than games played.

can you guess who they are and which stats belong to which qb?
hint: only one is currently on a roster.

Lots of variables here.....good teams bad teams....?

How many seasons...?

If they are retired or haven't played in years, none of the past really counts today....

no. but he'll get in. there are qbs with worse stats already in without a super bowl and without the manning name.
but when you look at the numbers above knowing there are statistically worse qbs than eli in the hall that even without hardware romo should get in but he won't. all because he played on teams whose defense for several of those years was ranked dead last in the nfl. he owns pretty much every cowboys passing record - higher completion and td percent than aikman or staubach and a lower interception percent than aikman or staubach and a higher passer rating than both. and think about this...staubach had coach landry; the doomsday defense and tony dorsett. aikman had coach jimmy johnson; a defense with prime time and the all time leading rusher at rb. romo had the clapping ginger (aikman's backup qb) as coach as well as a few others; a revolving door of mediocre rbs and wrs who on different occasions led the league in drops. with the exception of witten romo had a supporting cast that wouldn't even have been starters on other rosters. romo's only way into the hall is probably as a broadcaster (assuming he stays with it). but i digress.

Probably….

But, Simms won two SBs for the same team and he's not in.....

~ Simms led the Giants past the Broncos, 39-20, in the Giants' first Super Bowl appearance. He was nearly perfect, completing 22 of 25 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns to be named the MVP. Simms' 88 percent completion rate remains a Super Bowl record.

Who knows....

His problems are not with his play, although better analysts than I declare it mediocre at best. And that was 3 years ago.

His problem is he's a mediocre at best player and a troublemaker. An on field troublemaker. One who renounced his contract.

Nobody knowingly buys a problem.

The guy in column 4 spouted his politics during his job. Moron.
Unless your job is politics, best shut your political mouth during work hours.
I work for a large corporation. I don't stand in front of the building during my working hours protesting anything. If I did, they'd fire me. But then, CK didn't get fired, he quit and now snivels about not having a job. Yeah, my employer doesn't hire trouble causers either.
