Even after looking him up on Wikipedia, I still kinda feel like "Tobin Rote" is just a made-up name.

*IF* he can stay healthy, and I sure hope he does, he's going to obliterate Vick's record. He's 1/3 of the way there in 2 seasons.

Health is definitely an issue in pursuit of Vick's mark, even as demonstrated by Cam Newton's problems. But as also shown by Newton, lack of/inconsistent accuracy can also complicate things. Defenses can stack the box or spy the QB if they know the QB can't consistently hit open receivers.

Jackson appears to have the same issue with accuracy as Newton has had. Last night vs Tennessee in the playoffs, the top-seeded Ravens got knocked out. While Jackson had a number of passes dropped, he also had quite a few absolutely horrid throws. Like, not even close. And some of the drops, while catchable balls, were poorly placed throws that made them unnecessarily more difficult for the receivers to catch. The opening interception, for instance, went off his TE's fingertips, but should not have been throw so high. If he puts that on the numbers, there's no interception, whether the TE catches it or not.

Any reason why it only gives me 4 points even though I got 100%?

Not a lot of Super Bowl wins on this list. Longevity & accuracy seem to be a frequent price paid by the QBs who make their living with their legs.

BTW, isn't Josh Allen up to #6 now, ahead of Tarkenton?
