Is that Devin Gardner warming up for a recent game for Michigan, or former Wolverines star Denard Robinson? Obviously, it’s current starter Gardner – Robinson is off to the NFL and is listed as an “offensive weapon” for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

However, if we were just taking a blind look at each of the quarterbacks’ respective numbers through their first four games – 2012 for Robinson, 2013 for Gardner – there is almost no way to tell one from the other:

Player A: 200 pass yards per game, seven touchdowns, eight interceptions, 75 rush yards, 72 total QB Rating

Player B: 209 pass yards per game, six touchdowns, eight interceptions, 110 rush yards, 72 total QB Rating

So, who’s who? Player A is Gardner’s state line, while player B’s is Robinson’s.

Interestingly, Michigan fans – and coach Brady Hoke – were excited to finally have Gardner take over full-time following Robinson’s inconsistent tenure in Ann Arbor. Seen as more of the prototypical, pocket-passing quarterback Hoke wanted, Gardner was supposed to absolutely star in 2013.

Of course, being compared to one of the most prolific passers in school history is not such a bad thing. However, in this case, it’s not exactly the best.

After all, if Gardner doesn’t pick things up, none of these comparisons or stats will matter – Gardner’s Wolverines will not escape Big Ten play in one piece.
