Sportsline has Ramsey #1


Recommended Posts

He looks like a poor man's Brett Favre, which is a good thing. Smart, tough, nice touch on long balls, doesn't lose much composure while losing. It's actually conceivable to say he's within the top 10-15 already - the NFL has never had as many washed up or raw QB's as the last couple years. He seems to really want it too, as he's trimmed down from a weight of 240+ at Tulane to around 210 now.

I think those are pure FF ratings. Ramsey is tops in yards and close in TDs. Coles is the yardage leader amongst WRs.

Of course, if you look at passer ratings, Ramsey is still amongst the leaders. Maybe three other starting QBs are higher in the NFL. Pretty impressive so far.

Speaking of Favre, I thought you guys might like this recap of his 1992 season (his first in Green Bay) from the Packers official website:

Acquired from Atlanta by Packers General Manager Ron Wolf for a first-round draft selection in an offseason trade (Feb. 10)

Was so impressive in escorting Green Bay to its second-best record in 20 years (9-7) - soaring from designated backup to Pro Bowler in just three months' time - that then-Head Coach Mike Holmgren was prompted to observe, "If Brett can stay healthy, he will be the cornerstone of our football team for many years to come."

Beginning the 1992 season as the understudy to incumbent Majkowski, he was hastily summoned from the bench to replace an injured Majkowski (ankle) in the first quarter of Game 3 vs. Cincinnati (Sept. 20) and proceeded to take a stranglehold on the QB position, staking an immediate claim by leading the Packers to an electrifying, come-from-behind, 24-23 victory over the Bengals, forged by way of a 35-yard scoring pass to wideout Kitrick Taylor with only 13 seconds remaining in the game

Performing in storybook fashion, he went on to compile an 8-5 record as a starter and establish two new Green Bay passing records in the process - single-season marks for passing percentage (64.12%) and most consecutive 200-yard passing games (11)

Named as the third QB for the NFC Pro Bowl squad after finishing fifth among conference passers with an 85.3 overall rating, based on 302 completions in 471 attempts for 3,227 yards and 18 touchdowns with only 13 interceptions

At the time, was the youngest quarterback ever to play in AFC-NFC Pro Bowl (since 1971) at 23 years, 3 months, 28 days of age

His 302 completions tied him with Troy Aikman of Super Bowl champion Dallas for first-place honors in NFC

Also ranked second in the conference (to Young) with his 64.12 passing percentage, which broke Starr's Green Bay single-season record of 63.74, set in 1968

Had third-lowest interception percentage among all NFL quarterbacks (2.76)

Also became only the fourth Packers QB to pass for over 3,000 yards in a season

Had a string of 111 passes without an interception broken at Oilers on Dec. 13

Did not play vs. Minnesota in regular-season opener on Sept. 6, but saw action in relief role the next week at Tampa Bay (Sept. 13), completing 8 of 14 passes for 73 yards in second-half play

Engineered two TD drives in last eight minutes of the game to pull out 24-23 victory over Cincinnati (Sept. 20) after relieving injured Majkowski in opening quarter

Threw for a season-high 289 yards against Bengals on 22-of-39 passing

Made first NFL start on Sept. 27 vs. Pittsburgh and responded by completing 14 of 19 passes for 210 yards and 2 TDs, including a 76-yarder to Sharpe, with no interceptions

Completed 27 of a season-high 44 attempts for 279 yards at N.Y. Giants (Nov. 8) but had 3 interceptions, his first multiple-interception contest of the season

Also forced a fumble vs. the Giants - recovered by teammate Sanjay Beach - in an impromptu role as a tackler, hitting New York's Pepper Johnson after Johnson had intercepted a pass

Staged an inspiring performance vs. Philadelphia (Nov. 15), leading the Packers to a 27-24, come-from-behind victory despite suffering a first-degree separation of his left (non-throwing) shoulder early in the game

Completed 23 of 33 for 275 yards and 2 scores with 2 interceptions in upset of Eagles

Had a 5-yard TD run (his first NFL touchdown) at the Bears a week later (Nov. 22) during a fine overall performance, which saw him complete 16 of 24 passes for 209 yards and 1 TD (a 49-yard strike to Sharpe) in 17-3 triumph

Posted high percentage performance in rematch with Lions (Dec. 6), hitting on 15 of 19 passes for 214 yards and 3 TDs (the first 3-touchdown game of his career) in escorting Packers to a 38-10 victory.

Any of this sound familiar? :D
