Just at a cursory glance, I wanted to check on some things, kind of match up with some of what MF has been thinkin.
I've pointed out the 50 games, 48 INT's. Basically one a game. But that isn't the case really.
For instance, Luck's rookie year, he threw 3 INT's his first game.
So, I went thru them all.
Rookie year, 16 games, 18 INT's, but 13 of them came in FIVE (!!!!!!!!) games! That means that as a rookie, he had 11 games totaling just 5 INT's.
Year 2, 16 games, 9 INT's, and 3 of them came in one game. That leaves 15 games, with just 6 INT's.
Year 3, 16 games, 16 INT's, and 10 of them came in 5 games. That leaves 11 games, with just 6 INT's.
That's a total of 37 games, with 17 INT's.
The other 11 games, he has 26. (4 3 INT games, and 7 2 INT games) (also, add 1 3 and 1 2 already this year)
Basically, that tells me they come in bushels for him. 37 games, and just 17 INT's is hardly the need to take better care of the ball.
The 11 games are his biggest culprits, and those include 3 3 INT games his rookie year. That rookie year alone inflates his INT totals.
The first 3 multi INT games of his career, they were blown out. Badly.
The next 2, they won both games.
The 2nd year, they were blown out in his 3 INT game.
Year 3, they were blown out twice, and lost one close one, and won 2 of his multi INT games.
The Bears, the Jets, the Patriots, the Lions, the Titans are the rookie year multi INT games.,
The Rams were year 2.
Broncos, Ravens, Steelers, Browns, Cowboys year 3.
And of course, Bills and Jets so far this year.
So again, 50 games, 48 INT's, and the majority of them coming in just a handful of games.
37 games with just 17 INT's total. And the majority of his multi INT games come during blow outs.
To me, that don't sound like a guy that has ball control issues. Those are factors going on that contribute to a few forced throws, and a couple catch up to him. Otherwise, the majority of his work, he takes very good care of the football.
