Hopefully he will learn the system more in his second year. As he has a lot to learn. After a pretty bruising rookie year. Would hate to guess the numbers though.NFL 2013 is Here!

I just don't see the kid staying healthy. I love his athleticism but It's been a long time since a QB other that Brett put up the kind of numbers you guys are hoping for. Blame it on the line, the division or his affinity for being knocked out of games...He starts the season but only plays in about 12 full games.
2800 yds 17tds 17int
I'll give him a nice 60% completion ratio because he was normally accurate but has to adjust to the speed of the game.

Not like we are predicting big numbers.
I would say we had better play from Culpepper in 2004, Johnson in 2005, Frerotte and Jackson in 2008 and (obviously) Favre in 2009. I guess maybe you see those as a long time ago. But even if you got back to Culpepper, it was just 8 seasons ago.
I think these numbers are very realistic if he starts 14-16 games. As they are pretty similar to yours just prorated out.

Yes, if we saw multiple back to back starts by Webb, we would have a larger body of evidence to judge him. But he isn't going to get multiple back to back starts. If and when the time comes that he does get to start more often, I reserve the option to reevaluate my opinion of him.
Ponder is going to see more starts - therefore the jury is still out on him IMHO.

I enjoyed watching him play. I think he is a competitor and a strong athlete. I just didn't see anything that you can build a complex offense around. He is a less refined Vince Young, with a better head between his shoulders. If you refine him, than you might have a Vince Young, but that's the ceiling for him in my book.
