The graph below shows FPOP/attempt for three quarterbacks going back to 2003. Those three quarterbacks, Matt Ryan, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady have all been celebrated and criticized at times over the period shown in the graph. Recall that during the 2010 season Peyton Manning threw a number of pick sixes (he threw 17 total INTs that year). Tom Brady is certainly under fire for essentially making a few bad throws in the AFC Championship game, and that criticism came after probably the same people said that Brady could throw to pretty much anyone and be good.
