This one puts things about Baker in the right perspective.

"His completion percentage (71) is this year’s best and 27th-best all-time among qualifiers. It’s a good bit off from Colt McCoy’s record 76.7 percent in 2008."

He throws deep more often than Colt McCoy did so he's a far more accurate passer despite the complete percentage difference. If he was throwing those same passes as McCoy, his completion percentage would be 80%+.

One thing that people are not emphasizing enough is that he improved his numbers from last year even though the entire cast of skill players around him changed (we lost Mixon, Perine and Westbrook). 

It's really impressive that he can be successful with different surrounding casts.

His passer rating (203.8) is the best all-time, better than 2016 Baker Mayfield (196.4) and 2011 Russell Wilson (191.8).

His yards per attempt (11.8) is the best all-time, better than 1999 Michael Vick (11.4) and 2016 Baker Mayfield (11.1).

The passer rating gap between Mayfield’s current number and Wilson is the same as the gap between No. 3 Wilson and No. 15 Vernon Adams of Oregon.


Well, this kinda "stole my thunder".

I was preparing a normal distribution plot similar to the one I posted a couple of days ago about the phenomenon of OU's 2017 offense. This plot contains passer efficiency data. It's unbelievable what the numbers suggest!

I accented a portion of the article in bold. Just let that sink in for a moment. Baker's performance last year is a once in a generation performance. His performance this year is a once in a generation of generations performance. Everyone soak this moment up....unless there're some miraculous medical advancements against aging you will not see it again.

Of course it takes the entire team for Baker to have such numbers. I hope the rest of the team can hold up to what we are going to see from Georgia.... Georgia's good, ya'll. Very, very good.

I wish I knew how many of the PI's and incomplete passes that are credited to Baker when they were actually tipped or catch-able.  Sure seems he has been more accurate than his statistics reflect.

Baker has an uncanny ability to read defenses and knows this offense inside and out. He also has the ability to hit very tight windows and go deep with better accuracy than most. When you make those risky throws, your accuracy is going to suffer a little bit. If he was like some system QBs and tried this, one of two things would happen. They'd be at 50% completion or less or they would have a ton of interceptions.
