Dan Marino - 58.4% completion percentage 2210 yds 20 TD 6 INT in 9 starts with a 7-2 record.
Ben Roethlisberger 66.4% completion percentage 2621 yds 17 TD 11 INT with a 13-0 record.
And I should have looked up Joe Flacco. He was 11-5 as a rookie with decent stats. All better than Cam Newton. Cam is the best QB this year. Not of all time.
Jim Kelly had a fairly solid rookie season as well. He finished 1986, 4th in completions, 8th in attempts, 6th in yards, 5th in TD's, 8th in Passer Rating, 10th in Y/G, 8th in Y/A, 7th in comp %, and negatively tied for 10th in INT's. Pretty damn good season overall.
More recently, Matt Ryan had an excellent statistical season as a rookie. 61.1%, 3440 yards, 16 TD's, 11 INT, 2.5% INT rate, 7.9 Y/A, Rating 87.7 team went from 4-12 to 11-5 and he took every snap.
