The Elon Phoenix will stay at home another game and welcome the Bluefield College Ramblin’ Rams at 2 p.m. ET Nov. 14 at Schar Center. The Phoenix were 10-9 last year and are coming off of a 107-62 victory against the Randolph College Wildcats on Friday.
Dilfer played in the league for 14 seasons, with his most notable achievement coming in 2000, when he led the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl victory.
However, his career stats are significantly less impressive than that of Rodgers and Brady, which has made many members of the NFL media question his journalistic integrity.
In 14 years, Dilfer threw for 20,518 yards, 113 touchdowns, and 129 interceptions.
To put this into perspective, Rodgers has played in the league for 17 seasons, and he has thrown just 104 career interceptions, a full 25 less than Dilfer, who started in 110 fewer games than Rodgers has.
Brady, on the other hand, played in the NFL for 23 seasons and threw 212 career interceptions in 333 games.
That means, that, on average, Brady threw an interception every 1.5 games.
For context, Dilfer averaged one interception in each of his games and had a negative touchdown to interception ratio.
As one might imagine, many are throwing these statistics back in Dilfer’s face, citing that he played in the league when Brady and Rodgers did but was unable to achieve similar success.
Dilfer’s credibility is being called into question, but this certainly isn’t the first time.
Will he continue to be an NFL media personality moving forward?
