With Mark Sanchez beginning training camp for his fourth NFL season today, and with the big things expected of him, let’s take a look at some of the other QBs around the league, and see how they did in their fourth seasons. By the numbers, we can get an idea of what history has done for fourth year quarterbacks.

First, the guy Mark is most closely associated with, Eli Manning:(his fourth yr as full time starter)

289-479, 60.3% completion, 3,238 yards, 21 TD, 10 INT

How about Ben Roethlisberger?

264-404, 65.3 % completion, 3,154 yards, 32 TD, 11 INT

Now we’ll take a look at an AFC QB in his prime, Philip Rivers:(fourth year as starter)

317-486, 65.2% completion, 4,254 yards, 28 TD, 9 INT

Next is a name I hate to utter, Tom Brady:

288-474, 60.8% completion, 3,692 yards, 28 TD, 14 INT
