He set almost every important record by a rookie QB playing for a team that was by a wide margin the worst in the league. They allowed the most yards, most 1st downs, 2nd most points, created the 2nd fewest turnovers, had the 5th fewest rushing yards, the 2nd fewest rushing TDs.
Long story short he threw the ball a **** ton. But per throw was less effective than the worst QB in the history of the game (I'm told)
It takes playing time to develop in the NFL.
