    Cheez is not going to be the only one keeping a tally of how bad he can play with his QB. Cheez clearly gets laughed at for the pitiful performance he can sometimes muster with his QB, however during the run with last year's game I believe other people did worse at throwing the ball, and we never adequately called them out. I mean Boom and Rec threw 7 picks against me on separate occasions last year. How does someone throw 7 picks in one game? I mean I have turned the ball over 7 times or more in a game, but that is with the help of the untimely fumble. So I will be keeping a running tally of league leaders in regards to interceptions and interceptions per pass attempt. I may be nice I discuss TDs per pass attempt as well.

    Remember this is through 2 Weeks. Cheez stats are skewed because he played one game.

    Individual Stats
    TAMU Johnny Manziel 30 Ints
    USC Connor Shaw 29 Ints.
    UF Jeff Driskel 26 Ints.
    BAMA AJ McCarron 24 Ints.
    MIA Ryan Williams 21 Ints.



    Individual Per Attempt-

    MIA Ryan Williams 1 out 10 passes are interceptions +/- a few percentage points
    USC Connor Shaw 1 out 10 1/3 passes are interceptions +/- a few percentage points
    BAMA AJ McCarron 1 out of 11 passes are interceptions +/- a few percentage points
    MIZ James Franklin 1 out of 11 1/2 passes are interceptions +/- a few percentage points
    TAMU Johnny Manziel 1 out 12 1/3 passes are interceptions +/- a few percentage points


    Touchdowns
    ARK Tyler Wilson 36
    UF Jeff Driskel 32 TDs
    USC Connor Shaw 24
    UGA Aaron Murray 23
    MIA Ryan Williams 23


    Per Attempt
    ARK Tyler Wilson 1 out of 8 are TDs+/- a few percentage points
    MIA Ryan Williams 1 out of 9 passes are TDs
    UGA Aaron Murray 1 out of 9 1/4 passes are TDs +/- a few percentage points
    UF Jeff Driskel 1 out of 10 are TDs+/- a few percentage points

    Congrats to whygodwhy1111 who knows how to throw a TD pass. Cheez and recchem2000 Bray and Frazier probably had better percentage, but they did not have enough attempts

    Picks are my #1 concern every game I start. I was upset I threw 2 vs. Kentucky, but 1 I try to throw to the TE running an in but I thew it before he cut and lobbed it right to the safety who was just sitting there. I've thrown 3 through 3 games which I'm happy with. I'm just trying to learn to throw 1 or less INTs per game without being too conservative.

    I'm going to throw a ton coming up because I HAVE to figure out how to throw, and that may mean throwing caution to the wind a bit.

    here is the trick..

    Throw unsuccessfully all game, take advantage of the one time the other team plays cover 2 zone

    The real key to INTs is to only throw them 30+ yards down field on 3rd down.. then throw as many as you want

    I have thrown 2 in 2 games, unfortunately they both came in the 2nd half against Arkansas. I'm putting the over/under on my INT's against Boom29 tonight at 3.

    I think we should do a combined over/under of 6. That would sound about right.

    I'm going to make a prediction that Showers will not throw another pick this season... He probably will not see the playing field except in mop up duty when we are running the ball. Even though the # on his acc is higher than Manziel's he is far less accurate. Johnny threw only 1 pick against WVU and it was in the late stages of the game. We are getting better at not forcing the ball because our line is actually doing a nice job holding the pocket. If that continues we'll cut down on the int's big time.

    3 for me vs. SatansAngel1104 - but two of them were late in the game with me trying to get back into it. Had a really good game through three quarters :)

    You need to update the stats after week 4 gowazzucougs....although I think Jayrah 's boy Manziel may have it in the bag.

    After a dismal 2nd half against Kentucky, Driskels INT total will balloon.

    Yes you did, Bray was doing his job for sure. Hit some nice nice timing routes.

    The results are updated through Week 3 games. With two games being thrown the stats are not truly correct. Two observations All Cheez throws are interceptions or TDs, there is really no in between. I am not listing completion percentage, but Wyrmreaver has a ridiculous completion percentage 82.2%. A lot of people have a completion percentage 60% or better. The following starters have less than a 60% completion percentage: Tyler Bray, Connor Shaw, EJ Manuel, and Stephen Morris.

    I don't think Boom wants to share those stats from what I gathered in talking to Dru

    Boom's QB had like 250 yards throwing with about 5 TD's.....unfortunately 3 of the TD's were thrown to UGA players. He had 5 INT's in the game, that much I do remember. I think I had one or two in the game as well.
