Since it looks like we will probably get a spread offensive system with the next coach, I watched MissState QB go down with a severe injury, Houston’s Deshaun Watson go down with a season ending injury, and got to wondering how many times a season they get hit. Austin was reported to be one of the most hit QB’s in the nation, but I wonder if that is true if you count the tackles that frequently running QB’s have to absorb?
Fitzgerald got hurt while scrambling, so you’d have to factor in both of those guys are mobile.
As for in the pocket, I’d bet you it’s a lot less often, MSUs Oline had only given up a handful of sacks throughout the season, verygood OL. (It got worse at the end with some guys banged up)
