The rain is having a big input.

 

Normally this would favor Seattle, but since they got behind early, the weather is biting them on the ass.

 

I love Seattle, though. Great Town.

GB gets a TD here and the Seahawks are in deep doo doo.

 I knew the answer before I asked you that question and credit you for being honest in saying QBR isn't something NFL GM's don't use as a metric of success.

 

 

LOL...nice sentence.

 

Some people take Total QBR very seriously, Bill Polian for example.

 

I don't take if very seriously, frankly.

 

I believe the total construct of NFL passer rating in conjunction with watching film to be far more instructive.

 

Sorry, Charlie, no more argument from me on this thread...it's time to watch football...

Does any General Manger use QBR when rating or evaluating QB's? I thought that was a stat created by espn to summarize QB performance for television/media purposes. I'm actually not trying to be a dick, I honestly don't know and I'm curious if it's a stat taken seriously by coaches and GM's.

And what QB doesn't need to stay healthy to get improved stats? Extra digs like that make you seem petty and incapable of letting your bias cloud every comment.

 

I am not sure why being concerned with the health of a running QB who exposes himself to far more hits than the average QB is a "dig". Especially when the injury bug starts to bite.

 

It is not a "dig". It is sanity. It is the fundamental reason why pro football offenses evolved in a different direction than college offenses.

No one knows but we have a pretty good idea. its not like the top 5 QBs are all suddenly going to get $50 million next year.

 

But you'd rather have newton take up ~$18 mil a year for 3 years on the cap than have an escalating cap number for the next 3 years?

 

You really can't tag a player more than twice or it becomes suicide, but if Newton actually plays like an elite QB in 2016 and 2017 I have no problem paying him that kind of money.

 

The point here is that if he puts up elite numbers, he will get paid elite money and I will support if fully.
