How Does 2015 J.W. Rudolph Compare to 2011 Brandon Weeden?



Stats, I have them.

Forget about the running game just for a minute (I know this is difficult). Let’s talk about the two-headed monster at QB Mike Gundy has in J.W. Walsh + Mason Rudolph (the best two-headed monster at QB for an OSU team in 2015 so far?)

Rudolph has been solid for all but about five quarters this year and Walsh has been pretty much perfect. A leader, a closer in the red zone and basically an extra running back on a team not deep with running backs.

It’s been a hodgepodge, but it’s also been pretty good. So how does it compare to the best QB season in Oklahoma State history (i.e. Brandon Weeden in 2011)? It’s closer than you might think.

Pretty interesting, right? Now Weeden had RBs vulturing a ton of TDs whereas these guys pretty much have to create all their scores on their own. But still. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Brandon Weeden was a whirlwind of absolute greatness — the best OSU has ever had. But these two dudes? They’re not so bad either.
