    Nice to have a win but there is a lot to be desired from the offense. With this production it will not be enough for most opponents. I still feel the production will get better but to avoid being compromised in the early part of the schedule the passing game will have to improve rapidly. Like right now.

    Big deal.

    Outside of the first quarter he and that offense were mediocre and they aren't going to win very many games with him playing like that.

    160 yards passing in a 2018 NFL game and we're taking positives from that?

    Come on.
    Yep.

    You're acting like Dak was good in those categories.

    I'm not sure what the third down conversion rate was so I won't address that.

    The YPA was pretty bad - 6.4 YPA. Without the 64 yard throw it was 4. FOUR. That's atrocious.

    His completion percentage was decent at 64%. But honestly I'd like to see it higher with such a low YPA.

    No, total yards passing is not a meaningless stat.

    Total passing yards is certainly not a meaningless stat. It generally needs context but it's not meaningless.

    YPA and completion percentage are better stats, especially in conjunction with each other. But total yards matters too.

    Passing yards is not a be-all, end-all stat because yes, garbage time numbers can inflate, or red zone inefficiency can undue the gains you’ve made in the air.

    It’s not a great summation stat like QBR.

    But it’s still important. And a QB who can’t get over 200 yards per game (240-50, really, in today’s league) has no long term future. It tells that he’s not effective enough moving the ball in the air.

    It has tremendous meaning, because that’s what it means. It’s only meaningless for excuse making homers who are trying to gloss over really serious flaws.

    Anyone else slightly relieved that Will Hernandez doesn’t look as much of a finished product as we all thought?
