    Talk the Talk by Rating Your Favorite Quarterback

    EACH WEEK FOLLOW THE QB ON YOUR NFL TEAM AND SEE HOW HE STACKS UP:

    • Keep track of the number of touchdowns your QB racks up every game
    • How many total yards passing does your QB rack up every game?
    • What is your Quarterback’s overall rating? How is it determined?
    • Here’s the Formula to determine your QB’s overall rating:

    Divide a quarterback's completed passes by pass attempts.

    1. Subtract 0.3.
    2. Divide by 0.2 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.
    3. Divide passing yards by pass attempts.
    4. Subtract 3.
    5. Divide by 4 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.
    6. Divide touchdown passes by pass attempts.
    7. Divide by 0.05 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.
    8. Divide interceptions by pass attempts.
    9. Subtract that number from 0.095.
    10. Divide that product by 0.04 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.
    11. Add the four totals you recorded.
    12. Multiply that total by 100.
    13. Divide by 6.
    14. The final number is your quarterback rating.

    *For those of us , like me, who are NOT a wiz at math I suggest you google the words “NFL Player Passing statistics 2011” and select the ESPN stat sheet because the information is all there for you week to week.

    Adding some key QB Stats to your repertoire

    • Count up the number of passes per game your QB has completed so far this season. This statistic tells you how accurate your QB is and the talent of his receivers. If the QB’s percentage of completed passes is low don’t expect his team to be winning football game…But if his pass completion percentage is in the 60% or more range…your QB is doing well.
    • Here is the mathematical calculation: The number of completed passes thrown by the QB each week divided by the total number of passes thrown = pass completion percent. The more passes your QB completes the greater likelihood his team will win the game!
    • Keep track of the number of interceptions your QB throws during each game. The fewer interceptions he throws the better chance his team has to win the game!
    • How often does your QB get tackled each game before he throws the football? Sacks matter…the more a QB gets thrown to the ground the more likely he will be injured.

    COMPARE THE QB ON YOUR TEAM to the Top Quarterbacks in the NFL

    • Percentage of QB completed passes per game
    • Number of QB interceptions thrown per game
    • Number of passing touchdowns by QB per game
    • Number of QB Sacks per game

    Advanced Info about QB’s
    • About 1/3 out of the 32 Teams in the NFL have solid, talented Quarterbacks
    • That leaves 22 NFL teams searching for Quarterbacks that will improve their Team
    • Whatever football franchise you follow make sure you know whether the starting quarterback of the first game this year is still the QB.
    • Do you know how many Quarterbacks your favorite team has had during the last 10 years? If not find out and you can Talk about it
    • Does the team you follow have a quarterback controversy as to who will play? If so you can be sure the morale and effectiveness of the team will be definitely compromised. ( It’s the same in large companies where there are 2 or 3 candidates for the top job and no one knows who it will be)
    • Don’t blame everything on the QB but keep in mind the QB is the team leader and if he is not effective he will get blamed for everything
    • Remember if your team drafted a quarterback in the first round of the draft they will play sooner rather than later…so be on the lookout and know the name of the QB that was drafted by your team and follow along to see when and how well he plays
    • Don’t forget that Football is a contact sport and if a QB loses his edge and a degree of passion and enthusiasm he will not be the starting quarterback for long
    • Look at the NFL teams that have been successful and are in the hunt for the super bowl over a long period of time and you can be sure they have an outstanding quarterback as the Team’s leader.
    • Once you start following NFL football you will learn that quarterbacks move around a lot and change is the one constant with most teams except those with QB’s like Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Eli Manning.
