It's very simple. All I did was do a query in ProFootball Reference to get the passer rating of quarterbacks with at least 100 attempted passes from weeks 1-8 and weeks 9-16.
Once I obtained this data, I eliminated the people who did not appear in both tables. This is the reason why people like Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Alex Smith, Colin Kaepernick and some others do not appear: Because they did not have enough passes during one of the halves in the season to be able to compare their improvement to the other
The number that you see is the difference of the passer ratings, over the passer rating of the first half. So, for example, Russel Wilson's passer rating in the second half of the season was 46% higher than his passer rating during the first half.

 

 

Interesting stuff.

it's 2nd half of the season, not 2nd half of games.

in a nutshell, the closer they are to the center of the graph the more consistent a passer they were throughout the season.

Sorry if the title was vague.

That could be consistently good...consistently bad....or consitently mediocre.

 

The graph only shows improvement...not relative play.

Yeah you're delusional if you think Bradford is consistently on the same level as Aaron Rodgers.

 

Still interesting though.

This my friend, is an untrue assessment (which doesn't explain everything), though I appreciate your attempt.

we gotta get out of the gate quick. a lot of teams and players play lights out after the pressure is off and they are out of the playoff hunt. that's why you see spoilers every year, teams with nothing to play for, out performing teams playing for their playoff lives. the pressure is off. we must have a fast start this year. we cant get behind the 8 ball again. the good teams start fast. oh yeah, im new, and for whatever reason,i cant start a post, but did you guys see the article on pro football talk.com? its entitled, " PANTHERS TAKING WORDS OUT OF CAM NEWTONS MOUTH". click on teams, then panthers. you gotta read the responses at the end of the article. ive never seen venom spewed like this. im new to the computer world, and you guys may have seen this kind of stuff before, but cam is so hated by alot of the fans around the league. i would love to hear your thoughts. is it jealousy? the guy is such a great showman and so entertaining. it reminds me of the hate muhammad ali got in his younger days. im glad to be aboard. GO PANTHERS!

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
