The old QB rating stat was invented over 40 years ago blu. It's pretty out dated. ESPN has a lot more resources and understanding of the game now than anyone did 40 years ago. So....I think I'll go with them on this one.
For example, when RGIII got hurt and missed most of the 2nd half, Kirk Cousins came in and posted a 97.2 under the old 158.3 rating system you love so much, despite throwing 1 TD/2 picks and only completing 55% of his passes. Griffin is only posting a 101 on the season.
On the other hand, his QBR was only a 13.6 on a 100 scale. Griffin's QBR is a 71.8 on the season.
It's pretty obvious that QBR is a much better stat to use.
How come he's had two in the last calendar year, while Luck hasn't had a single one?
I think I would worry if I were the Redskins.

Holy smokes, this place has been a lot more bearable the last 3 or 4 days with OlBoob on ignore.
You have earned troll status. I hope you are proud. You cannot tell the difference between fact and opinion. RGIII is one of top rated QBs in the NFL. That is a fact. RGIII is rated 31 out of 32, that is also a FACT!!..
RG3 would get KO'd by a gust of wind

In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted."
Now olblu, please read some of the things you said to me in the Luck injured thread last night about your pension and disability status and tell me that isn't the definition of trolling. Fact
here is a stat for Ol'blue, Andrew Luck has has the third most dropped passes in the NFL, that is why his completion percentage is so low

Only an irrational person would spend the entire week after an RG3 loss proclaiming him to be a multiple Super Bowl player, a legend, and "great" while calling Luck, who won his game, a mediocre quarterback and poor management decision during the same time frame.
Quit being a 'Skins homer, Blu. Get your head out of his butt.
There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.
You're rude to everyone on here, so don't tell me how to conduct myself.
