  1. Let's dive into some numbers and examine just how successful or unsuccessful Adrian Martinez's year was, and juxtapose that against what we've seen from previous Husker QBs, with the idea of finding out how much of our disappointment with him is his fault vs. whatever expectations were laid at his feet. What I'm going to do is look at the passing yards, completion percentages, yards per attempt, TD/INT ratio and the QBR of the starting QBs who took the most attempts for the last 10 years of Husker Football (I've bolded the leader in each category). 2010 - Taylor Martinez: 116/196, 59.2%, 1,631 yds, 8.3 YPA, 10 TDs, 7INTs, 138.8 QBR 2011 - Taylor Martinez: 162/288, 56.3%, 2,089 yds, 7.3 YPA, 13 TDs, 8 INTs, 126.5 QBR 2012 - Taylor Martinez: 228/368, 62.0%, 2,871 yds, 7.8 YPA, 23 TDs, 12 INTs, 141.6 QBR 2013 - Ron Kellogg III: 80/134, 59.7%, 919 yds, 6.9 YPA, 6 TDs, 3 INTs, 127.6 QBR 2014 - Tommy Armstrong: 184/345, 53.3%, 2,685 yds, 7.8 YPA, 22 TDs, 12 INTs, 133.0 QBR 2015 - Tommy Armstrong: 222/402, 55.2%, 3,030 yds, 7.5 YPA, 22 TDs, 16 INTs, 128.6 QBR 2016 - Tommy Armstrong: 151/294, 51.4%, 2,180 yds, 7.4 YPA, 14 TDs, 8 INTs, 123.9 QBR 2017 - Tanner Lee: 246/428, 57.4%, 3,143 yds, 7.3 YPA, 23 TDs, 16 INTs, 129.4 QBR 2018 - Adrian Martinez: 224/347, 64.6%, 2,617 yds, 7.5 YPA, 17 TDs, 8 INTs, 139.5 QBR 2019 - Adrian Martinez: 149/251, 59.4%, 1,955 yds, 7.8 YPA, 10 TDs, 9 INTs, 130.8 QBR What this tells us is that he had the third-best completion %, tied for second most YPA, while having a middling TD/INT ratio and QBR, and almost the least amount of yards. There's an absolute regression in each statistical category save for YPA, and he also threw the ball almost 100 less this year than last, while playing in only one fewer game. My conclusion is that while, yes, it was most certainly a disappointing year and a regression, he's statistically well within the mean of what production we've gotten from the QB position over the last 10 years. In fact, it's kind of scary how much it looks like Taylor's freshman season (minus rushing production). So yes, it's a disappointment, but it's also mostly what we've gotten from the position in recent history. Just for comparison sake, here's the most successful statline of a Husker QB in recent history; I'll let you figure out who: 285/420, 67.9%, 3,568 yds, 8.5 YPA, 25 TDs, 11 INTs, 153.6 QBR
