If anything, his only having started 2 years hurts him. The big three at QB are all in the primes of their career and dont have any learning really left to do. Bulger with only two years starting still might be learning, which is not ideal for a top 3 QB.
Going into his 3rd full season I think his TD/INT ratio will improve greatly.
Why? The evidence you show on the most popular top 3 show that only one of them had even a 1:1 ratio in his third season. If anything, that suggests that Bulger's ratio is likely to get worse, though I personally think their stats have no barring whatsoever, I just see no reason why his TD:INT ratio would improve.
From what I've seen, his subpar TD:INT ratio comes from the same thing that gives him tremendous yards, the system. Mike Martz will find a way to convince himself he should call a passing play almost every down, and when you throw so many passes, you're going to get intercepted more often based on probability alone.
