No excuses - just rankings for Trevor Siemian

New, comments

A full breakdown of Trevor Siemian’s first full season as a starting quarterback in the NFL. He wasn’t half bad in most areas.

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

When I tire of the debate, I usually turn to the data. The stats and rankings don’t have an agenda. They don’t care about how awful the offensive line was, how pitiful the running game was or how badly that hang-nail hurt. They just are. People can, and I am sure, will spin them how they choose, but the numbers don’t care about that.

So here are the numbers (rankings) for Trevor Siemian relative to every quarterback in the league who threw 100 or more passes (note that Paxton Lynch did not throw more than 100 passes). There were 39 quarterbacks who threw 100 or more passes this season. Some of the more advanced stats are out of 35 quarterbacks (150 passing attempts minimum).
