In response to DeadAhead2's comment:
Still thinks Passer Rating means something more in the offensive passing era over the more accurate QBR, which takes into account more of the QB's responsibilties more than just passing stats.
"Total Quarterback Rating (abbreviated as Total QBR or simply QBR) is a proprietary statistic created by ESPN Inc. in 2011 to measure the performance of quarterbacks in American football. It was created to be a more meaningful alternative to the passer rating, but largely because of its proprietary nature, it has been met with criticism amongst fans and commentators alike.
QBR is a more meaningful alternative to the passer rating, which remains the official NFL measure of passing performance. The calculation of the NFL passer rating is much simpler than the QBR, as it depends only on aggregate statistics rather than an analysis of each play a quarterback is involved in. Passer rating is calculated using each quarterback's passing attempts, completions, yards, touchdowns and interceptions, and has a maximum value of 158.3 and minimum value of 0.
Noted football author and researcher Brian Burke of Advanced NFL Stats opined that QBR was superior to the traditional passer rating. The main advantages, in his opinion, are QBR's accounting for many more events in quarterback play than the old rating, and the fact that it avoids the double-counting that plagues the official NFL passer rating."
The QBR is obtained by taking the weighted average of the "points gained percentage" for each play, with each play having a weight equal to its clutch index. Thus the QBR has a range from 0 to 100 with 50 being considered average.
Hmm. 50 is average and Brady had a 66.1? Hmm.
Enjoy more facts!
Leave it to you to want to leave out a more comprehensive ratings system to protect bloated stats in a bloated era, which doesn't show the true nature of the QB's play.
Hey! Did you know Sanchez's Passer Rating on the night of the ButtFumble was 94! Wow! Rexie told us that at the podium as he tried to deflect.
You know what his QBR was which reflected his overall play representative of the ButtFumble amongst other notable poor moves from him? 21.
His QBR was 21. Good thing he was 26/36 for 301 yards and 1 TD and that "94 Passer Rating"!
Just like I said, it's espn's calculated ranking that uses a lower numeric value.
A 66.1 basically is the same as a 94 in all other rankings.
It's also ABOVE AVERAGE, as apposed to your mousy "not very good" You have no idea what good is as evidenced by you saying the pig pen of a DEFENSE is, for years.
Funny how a suck-up that hates espn would use that particular rating ,the lower numeric value, to describe his (joke) QB's performance when EVERYONE ELSE uses the other.
No agenda there. Nah
FRAUD! What's a plinko? Is that what you call the DEFENSE? Fat, lazy and unemployed, or soon to be.
