I don't really know what to make of this, so I'll just post this without comment.
Ben Roethlisberger, 2008: 9 starts, 1,686 yards, 10 TDs, 11 INTs, 7.0 yards per attempt, 76.1 rating, 6-3 record
Gus Frerotte, 2008: 7 starts, 1,619 yards, 10 TDs, 11 INTs, 7.2 yards per attempt, 74.0 rating, 5-2 record
Gus is playing like a former Super Bowl QB! Is that a favorable omen? Yet he's definitely not played as well as Kurt Warner.ReplyDelete
surely the 67 yard difference doesn't add 2.1 points to the QB rating by itself, right?ReplyDelete
Ben: 240 att / 144 comp (60.0%)
Gus: 226 att / 129 comp (57.1%)
There's the biggest difference between the two. I'd rather have our QB avg. 16/27 per game than 18/32.
As I understand it, the passer rating is based largely on "per attempt:" completions, yards, touchdowns, and interceptions per attempt. So the difference in completion percentage, as well as the interception rate, are likely what accounts for the slight rating difference.ReplyDelete
I don't think its a good sign when you are admirably comparing your QB to a QB who is single-handedly tanking the Steelers season.ReplyDelete
I don't know about Anon, but I'd take a 6-3 record right now if you offered it to me. 6-3 isn't "tanking" in vikings standards...ReplyDelete
anon, who is doing admirable comparisons?ReplyDelete
and I quote: "I don't really know what to make of this, so I'll just post this without comment."
sounds to me about as neutral as possible.
I'm certainly not "admirably" comparing them: the comparison just as easily makes me say "gosh, Ben Roethlisberger has sure sucked this season."ReplyDelete
