Offensive Passer Rating

Final Statistics for the 2011 Season

About Offensive Passer Rating. Offensive Passer Rating is merely the commonly used measure of quarterbacks, applied to the entire team, so it measures the performance of each quarterback on the roster. Passer rating is often criticized by ignorant football "analysts" for being overly complex. But its usefulness as a measure of team success is truly underappreciated in the football community beyond the Mighty Cold, Hard Football Facts. Like all of our Quality Stats, which are based on efficiency, Offensive Passer Rating has a much higher Correlation to Victory than volume stats, such as passing yards. Most great teams throughout history have a very strong Offensive Passer Rating, even if they did not pass for a lot of yards (the 1960s Packers are perhaps the greatest example).The Cold, Hard Football Facts have issued countless studies of the importance of Offensive Passer Rating, Defensive Passer Rating and Passer Rating Differential, each of them critical Quality Stats, including here on SportsIllustrated.com in the summer of 2011.
