ESPN
told you that stat was lame as hell.
That rating system really doesnt like it when you get sacked
Ya I usually update it week by week ut not gonna do that this week

This proves that stat is meaningless


I hope sand gives an explanation why it's so low

I don't see how 65% comp 2 TD 0INT 270 yards and a 20 point comeback win can get you a low rating
Didn't ESPN, lol
Fumble and sacks? Doesn't make much sense though. No picks and two TD's
22/32 273y 3td 3int (1 pick 6) 26pt loss= 77.9 (kyle orton)
22/33 291y 2td 0int 1pt win= 28.7

Really ESPN? lol

the two fumbles and 3 sacks take a huge hit out of his numbers.

stats are incredibly useful, but obviously anyone who watched the game knows that that doesn't reflect what happened in the game.
Ok... I'm going back to the old QBR system... Alex had a lower QB rating than Romo? the guy that gave the game away?

This was Alex's best game this year, and possible in his entire career. He carried most of the team... (not all, Gore deserves some credit)

He had a lame first half, an outstanding 3rd quarter, and a solid 4th quarter. that does seem way too low though. Conversely, the traditional rating has put him way too high this year. Smith has found the loophole in the traditional QB rating stat: do very short high % dump offs and you'll jack up the rating. That's not his intent, but that has been the result however.
Does it count the multiple drops in the first half? because this is just ridiculous.
