Defensive Real Quarterback Rating

Through Week 3 of the 2012 Regular Season

About Defensive Real Quarterback Rating. We introduced Real Quarterback Rating and Defensive Real Quarterback Rating before the 2011 season as a way to quantify all aspect of QB play. It’s been a TOTAL score behind your wildest dreams. Teams better in Real QB Rating in 2011 and 2012 went an incredible 441-70 (.863), proving that winning in the NFL is almost always about more efficient play at the QB position.

The current passer rating is just that, a measure of passing effectiveness. Real Defensive Quarterback Rating measures how opposing quarterbacks perform against a given team not just passing, but also rushing. It also takes into account fumbles, rushes, rushing yards and sack stats to produce a new kind of rating that measures an opposing quarterback’s overall performance with the ball, not just as a passer when he actually releases the ball (which is all that passer rating currently measures.

ATT(attempts) = pass attempts + rush attempts + plus sacks; ADV (advances) = completions + rush attempts. NetYds (net yards) = passing yards + rushing yards – yards lost on sacks. TDs (touchdowns) = TDs passing + TDs rushing by QBs. TOs (turnovers) = interceptions + fumbles by QBs. QBR (Quarterback Rating).
