As much as I detested Shannon Sharpe the player (primarily because he was so good), I really can't complain about Shannon Sharpe the television personality. In his weekly column, he argues a strong case for why Jerry Rice should have gotten at least one catch last week to extend his streak. He's also not yet sold on the Indianapolis Colts (because of their defense) or the Atlanta Falcons (because of their opponents) -- and despite my best efforts, I can't disagree with him on any accounts. Ugh!
Trevor Siemian and Carson Wentz rank in the bottom three in average air yards. Do good quarterbacks usually increase their air yards with more experience, or do their passes actually get shorter over time?
