Clayton Tune

The decision to start Clayton Tune as quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals has generated both optimism and criticism. Tune has had a disappointing start to his NFL career thus far, completing only 58.3% of his passes while totaling 218 yards over two games without scoring one touchdown pass. Furthermore, Tune has suffered one sack resulting in a 16-yard loss, resulting in an underwhelming quarterback rating of just 75.9.

His completion percentage and passing yards are alarming figures, demonstrating a need for Tune to improve his accuracy and decision-making under pressure. Without scoring this season, it is clear that Arizona is yet to achieve full offensive effectiveness, an issue which cannot solely be blamed on their receivers; Tune must find his rhythm with them to become an effective offensive threat for Arizona.

Sam Howell

Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell has had an exceptional start to his campaign with 75.7% completion rates across two games, accounting for 265 yards completed en route to three touchdowns with no interceptions, resulting in an outstanding quarterback rating of 122 despite its small sample size; Howell has shown excellent decision-making and ball placement skills which may account for his remarkable completion percentages. Howell has demonstrated his ability to maintain poise in the pocket and move through his progressions smoothly, leading him to score three touchdown passes without throwing any interceptions. Furthermore, his reading of the game has been very sharp, knowing when and how to release the ball to avoid sacks — only three times have he been taken down for 28-yard losses so far.

Tune and Howell provide starkly different performances when put side-by-side. Howell has demonstrated his experience and poise under pressure situations with accurate throws that have elevated his standing and that of the Commanders offense. Tune remains a work in progress – showing flashes of potential but lacking consistency across high-stakes situations to compete against quarterbacks like Howell.
