How Close is C.J. Stroud to a Record-Setting Season?
The rookie quarterback is on pace to dazzle this season
C.J. Stroud already broke one record. He started his career with the most completions before throwing an interception. He unseated Dak Prescott as the previous holder of that record.
What else can Stroud accomplish this season? In a hyperbolic phrasing, it could be the greatest rookie season of all time.
I will stop short of saying that. I am less interested in the flowy fairytale of a magical season today. I want to look at the cold hard numbers Stroud has put up and is capable of putting up the rest of this season.
Here are the rookie records and if C.J. Stroud is capable or likely to break them. It is worth noting Stroud will likely have more games played than these record holders. I will overlook players if they are too old, the league is too different. Let’s keep it modern.
