On paper, Josh Rosen’s rookie season was a disappointment. The same can be said of viewing the Mona Lisa. I mean it’s just a painting of some lady smiling, right? If I wasn’t beating you over the head enough, I think you get that context matters. It would be simple to look at Rosen’s rookie numbers and call him “trash”, but let’s paint a full picture.
We’ll begin by putting Josh Rosen’s numbers in their full grandeur. In his rookie season, Rosen attempted 393 passes in 13 games for a 55.5% completion rate, 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. No one is arguing that those numbers aren’t bad at a glance. In this complete list of quarterbacks who have started 13 games in their rookie season, Rosen ranks towards the bottom in just about every bad quarterback stat you can think of:
