Episode 20 Learn to Rate Your Quarterback

More football facts and important information:

EACH WEEK FOLLOW THE QB ON YOUR TEAM AND SEE HOW HE STACKS UP:

  • Keep track of the number of touchdowns  your QB racks up every game
  • How many total yards passing does your QB rack up every game?
  • What is your Quarterback’s overall rating? How is it determined?
  • Here’s the Formula to determine your QB’s overall rating:

Divide a quarterback’s completed passes by pass attempts.
1. Subtract 0.3.
2. Divide by 0.2 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.
3. Divide passing yards by pass attempts.
4. Subtract 3.
5. Divide by 4 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.
6. Divide touchdown passes by pass attempts.
7. Divide by 0.05 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.
8. Divide interceptions by pass attempts.
9. Subtract that number from 0.095.
10. Divide that product by 0.04 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.
11. Add the four totals you recorded.
12. Multiply that total by 100.
13. Divide by 6.
14. The final number is your quarterback rating.

*For those of us, like me, who are NOT a wiz at math I suggest you google the words “NFL Player Passing statistics 2011” and select the ESPN stat sheet because the information is all there for you week to week.
