Brett Favre and Interceptions

Below is a comparision of Brett Favre's season INT totals to average of the league's team INTs for each year.

Using data from pro-football-reference.com, I've
figured out the average team interceptions thrown during each season from 1992-2005. It's not a perfect system to compare an individual's interception total to team totals (for all sorts of reasons that should spring to mind if you just think about it a bit), but it's as good as I could think to do. I've included the Packers in the team average, and if Favre is within 1 (up or down) of the league average, I'm listing him as average for that season. I won't reach conclusions: for now, make your own.
