Pretty cool man. I wish my phone liked your site though. I'll check it out when I hop on my computer.

It passes the eyeball test pretty well. The guys that have played well rate highly, and that is the most telling part of any QB rating.

It certainly looks better than what ESPN is promoting.


I thought so as well. For one thing, unlike passer rating it analyzes a QB's performance based on his whole team's performance. If they have a monster rushing day and tons of points scored it will be weighted against a QB who didn't create a lot of those yards or points.

If anyone is curious, this is Brady Quinn's metric: http://50.116.44.142...layer=player-29

That lone 84+ effort? Against us of course.

And here's Cammy Cam: http://50.116.44.142...layer=player-24

His worst game is actually rated as the Bears, followed closesly by Seattle, then the Giants, and Denver. His strong recent push is also evident.

You need to lessen the importance of the rush since most QBs do not. It's skewed for a certain player.

It's only counted as part of total yardage and total TDs, and not treated differently otherwise. If it was weighted at all Tom Brady would not be at the top of the season QBA.

I just noticed that my database had sack yardage entered as negatives, but I was subtracting them in the calculation. Therefore, it was ADDING sack yardage to the QB's total yardage. That's now fixed, and now the correlation between QBA and wins is even higher at 79%. Peyton Manning also takes over the top spot for the season (Matt Moore's lone game excluded.)

Is it fair to remove rushing? The signal caller makes the decision after all. Better to get some yardage than throw the ball away.

Perhaps the case of a 1st down conversion for rushes >= 5 yards would be a significant action by the qb.
