In Friday night's exhibition win against the Joey Harrington-led Atlanta Falcons, 2006 2nd round pick, QB Kellen Clemens, threw for an impressive 174 yards on 16 of 22 passes with 3 TDs and no INTs. Given this was the first exhibtion game of the pre-season, hopes needn't get too high, but it did spur me to see what Pro Football Prospectus 2007 had to say about the seldom-used back-up QB. (ed: Just his luck to play behind Pennington in the first season Chad doesn't miss a game.)
There is little there that surprises, but PFP's projection for Clemens does: 58.8% completion rate with 2934 yards and 19 TDs along with 349 yards rushing. Of course, this assumes a 16-game season, but those totals are not far from Pennington's 64.5%/3192/20 with a meager 106 yards rushing.
