Lamar's career average completion rate is 64.1%, which is just one notch below Aaron Rodger's 65.1%. Garbage?
- Lamar's career TD % is 6.4, which is higher than AR's 6.3. Garbage?
- Lamar's career INT % is 2.3 compared to AR's incredible 1.3. Lamar threw only 3 INTs in 2018, 6 INTs in 2019, and 9 in 2020. He has thrown 12 so far in 2021 which obviously is not good, but he's clearly not having his best year. Rodger's first four years: 13 INTs in 2008, 7 in 2009, 11 in 2010, and 6 in 2011 so 37 INTs in his first four seasons. Lamar has thrown 30 so far with part of the season to go. Garbage?
Add in that Lamar averages around 1,000 rushing yards and 5-7 rushing TDs per year. What his legs really do is make them more dangerous on 3rd downs. I'm not here to say that Lamar Jackson is equal to or better than Rodgers, but his stats show that he is not garbage.
