It's an interception. No matter how it happened (ball was tipped etc)
If you're not going to count that kind of a play against the quarterbacks interception total should the sack total be assessed against an offensive line when the quarterback holds onto the ball too long?
100% true, but stats should be distinct from analyzing/assessing a QB's performance in a game. Account must be taken of a receiver playing volleyball (Jackson "set" the ball beautifully for the pick six) or a great play by the D to tip a pass (Willy's other interception against Edmonton). Just as an OL giving up sacks because the QB takes half-an-hour to make a decision is recognized, even if the stat is glaring; in nfcat, sacks are generally considered a shared QB/OL issue.
I understand what you mean Bri, but for every tipped pass there's a ball that almost hits the ground thata receiver dives for and saves the QB. Ask Eli Manning. For years he had WRs that would climb a ladder to bring down his wounded ducks.
...IMHO it's quite often not the receiver's fault but the QBs bad throw that results in the bad bounce...thrown too far ahead, more often too far behind, or too quick...the receivers try to make the play as they are taught, and sometimes it doesn't work...I think it's fine the way it is...
