I was taking a look at BM's stats on the season and just realized that his pass attempts so far this season are just about where BM finished the season last year with.
2011
PC/PA: 85/157
PCT: 54.1%
Yards: 1159
TD/INT: 13/4
Sacks: 39
Efficiency: 138.4
 
2012 (7 games to date)
PC/PA: 96/159
PCT: 60.4%
Yards: 1271
TD/INT: 11/4
Sacks: 12
Efficiency: 145.3
 
Thank God for much better O-line play, much better game planning, and better coaching across the board! His completion percentage and sacks taken are much better this year than last year's total. He also has about a 100 yards more passing this season but with 2 fewer TDs through the air. I know BM didn't start every game last season, but for him to have already surpassed last year's  passing attempts with a full half the season left to go speaks volumes.
While I'm at it and since I need more wordage to post, here's his rushing yards as compared to last year.
2011
Attempts: 159
Yards: 715
Avg: 4.5
Long: 81
TDs: 7
2012 (7 games to date)
Attempts: 129
Yards: 912
Avg: 7.1
Long: 72
TDs: 9
 
He's averaging quite a bit more per run this year and already has run for more yards than he did through all of last year. A lot of this can be attributed to not having that extra 27 sacks that he did a year ago. But a lot of the yards he picked up on the ground last year was him just making plays out of nothing. And although that's been seen quite a bit this year as well, the offense has been tailored to his strengths. Again, he's also taking advantage of the improved play from the O-line group. He's on pace to get 3500 total yards (~2000 yards throwing and 1500+ yards rushing). Not bad considering last year the offense just barely surpassed the 4k mark in total offense.
