Behold the career passer ratings of one Nathan Peterman:
- 2013: 42.53
- 2014: 70.58
- 2015: 141.06
Peterman’s 2013 start against Florida (passer rating: 3.82) was one of the worst performances I’ve ever seen from an SEC quarterback. You could make an argument that his relief stint against Georgia in 2014 cost Tennessee the game. Yet this year as Pittsburgh’s starter, he’s managed a remarkably consistent season.
So, yeah, I’d say so. And that’s even before you begin tossing out Drew Brees’ name.
