    Get well soon Jake. Ranked 5th overall with a 72.3 rating (what ever the hell it all means).

    BTW, for a laugh look at Blaine Gabbert's rating. 1.4 LOL

    This QBR thing sucks ass.

    Just use the normal rating and watch the games to see how people are playing.

    It does a better job than the Passer Rating IMO.

    I like the QBR. Accurate on performances.

    It's better than the passer rating but far from perfect, IMO, as a lot of factors impact QB performance (blocking, receivers, weather, etc.)

    Jake was beginning to show the kind of stuff that all the top QBs in the league did as some point in their career.

    Jake IMO will always have a good QBR going forwards. He's learned so much in just 2 years as our QB. I can't wait to see what the future holds for him.

    Agreed. The only thing that bugs me with the stat is that they couldn't choose a less confusing name for it?

    We've already had the passer rating (which most call QB Rating anyways) that fans are accustomed to, then they develop a new stat and call it the QBR which I think means QB Rating or Total QB Rating somehow...Just stupid.

    QBR factors in much more than just passing stats, it takes into account down and distance and what you do with the ball. Jake has played very smart football, so his QBR is up there with the best of them.

    I like the QBR, it tells you more about the player.

    No, what's stupid is a perfect score being a 158.3.

    I can't begin to recite the formula for the Passer Rating either.

    Individual stats in a team sport is always limited, IMO.
