    Where does CJ Stroud rank all time in rookie QB seasons?

    Through week 13 Stroud leads the league in 3,540 gross passing yards, His 101.2 passer rating is only behind Purdy, Prescott, and Tagovailoa. Stroud averages 295 yards a game and 8.5 yards average completion, moving the ball down the field. A case can be made for his talents in the fact he has been sacked 6th most in the league at 31 times, meaning he wasn’t gifted the best O-line. Texans offensive line ranked 23rd preseason. His completion rate of 63.4% ranks 23rd and what’s remarkable is beyond a 3 interception game against the Cardinals he’s only thrown 2 other interceptions. A 1.2% interception rate is incredible thus far.

    A big question is the Texans strength of schedule ranking 30th in the league. Is Stroud’s numbers skewed because of who he faced or is he legit having one of the all time great rookie campaigns?

    The jury is still out. Where do you see him ranking all time among the great rookie QB’s?

    In no particular order where do you see him ranking all time versus. Wilson, RG3, Marino, Herbert, Prescott, Mayfeild, Roethlisberger, Luck, etc…

    Considering his offensive line was horrible Andrew Luck's rookie season was tremendous.

    Good point Nasher…at record 627 attempts, there was little doubt what the colts were going to do. 41 sacks could have been much worse. Colts ranked 30th in SOS in 2012, similar to Stroud. Interestingly Stroud (even if you only guesstimate through 17 games) is set to break Lucks gross passing yards and TD’s while coming in around 1/3 of his interceptions. If he plays 18 weeks, stays healthy, and doesn’t have multi pick games he looks to outdistance his performance from Luck.

    I would say Marino, Stroud, Herbert w most impressive rookie seasons just because of how much they are able to minimize mistakes as rookies

    Texans’ QB C.J. Stroud, who missed Sunday’s win over the Tennessee Titans and remains in the concussion protocol, is likely to miss a second straight game this coming Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, sources told @Djbienaime
