Pick the Stat Lines: Quarterbacks

New, comments

It's quiet right now.  There has literally been nothing new in the news lately, so I'll throw this topic out there: What would be your predicted stat lines for the three Vikings quarterbacks who have all been, at some point, a possible starter?  If they were to play all 16 games this season, what numbers would we see from T-Jack, Rosenfels and Favre?

I'll get things started with my predictions...

Jackson: 3,000 passing yards, 20 TDs, 9 INTs, 61% completion

Rosenfels: 3,500 passing yards, 23 TDs, 16 INTs, 64% completion

Favre: 3,700 passing yards, 26 TDs, 18 INTs, 65% completion

I see Favre ending up somewhere between his 2007 and 2008 passing yardage totals (4,155 in 2007 and 3,472 in 2008), and yes, I also see him breaking the one interception per game mark.  But that just comes with the Brett Favre territory, and his ability to put up more yardage through the air than Jackson or Rosenfels should make up for that. 

When making my predictions, I especially struggled with T-Jack's stat line -- when you take a look back at his numbers from last season, you've gotta be impressed with the lack of turnovers you see in the game logs, but I'm just not sure I could expect him to finish the season with a 200 yard per game average.  I'm interested to see what folks in the comments come up with for Action Jackson's stat totals if he were to start all 16 games this season.

So, with that, what are your predicted stat lines for these three quarterbacks?

Update:

A couple commenters have noted my ommission of any win-loss records, so let's throw this one out there as well: What record do the Vikings finish the season with if each of these quarterbacks is at the helm for a 16-game season? I'd say 10-6 under either T-Jack or Rosenfels, with Favre being worth an additional win or two.
