[quote=23268]Stats are nice and do provide some insight into quality/efficiency/etc., but I think what is lurking beneath the surface of all of this discussion around Shaf and former QBs is the following: the ability to make the big time throw at the crucial moments.[/quote]
What game this season came down to Shaf making/missing that “big time throw at the crucial moments”? I can’t think of one.
However, I can think of Shaf getting the ball and putting it through for a touchdown in multiple crucial moments this year. One of them was last week.
Shaf’s season has not been perfect. Most notably, he’s had some key turnovers in spots. But it seems silly to me to question Shaf’s ability to make “the big time throw” when there’s no data to work with.
