Gus Is The Only QB In The League....

to start against the Lions this year and NOT record a career-high passer rating. The 6 (six!) other QB's that have faced the Lions have come away from the game with a new career-high rating.

It is significant to note that the other 6 QB's are all in either their first or 2nd year of starting, so they didn't have many game ratings to do better than.

While this is a sad piece of trivia for the Lions' defense, I can't help but feel this also reflects a little on the ineptitude of Childress' offense.

And while it can be said that Gus has started many a game, so for him to post a career-high would be much harder (especially because his career-high was a near-perfect 157.2 when he led our Vikings over the 49ers in 2003), it is worth noting that Gus' rating in the Detroit game was an 83.0, and all of the other QB's had at least a 110 (I think). And remember that all of these QBs are in their first or 2nd year of starting.
