How about you tell me your thoughts as to why his performance was better than Staffords?
What about this game also makes it better than his game against the Pats?
I never said any of those things. But I do know that Stafford took several sacks, and benefitted from a lot of yac. Both go into the QBR rating system.
Thank you Scotte. I can't stay here all day to defend my ideas.
Weird that someone with the username Russ Willstrong is bashing Wilson?
But that's a moot point. Here's one quick reason why I hate normal QB rating....
Final 2 minutes. Opposing QB takes snap at his own 10 yard line, and gets sacked for a safety. Loses the game. Does that have any effect on his QB rating? No..... But on QBR it destroys his rating.
And the reason Wilson's performance was better than Stafford's was for the reasons Scotte highlighted, and while Stafford didn't take too many sacks, Wilson took none
, while also suffering drops. Then, Stafford got tons of YAC, while Wilson got almost none. Take the Tate catch on 1st and 10, which led to 2nd and 1 because Tate tried to make something happen. Then we ran a running play and lost 4 yards. Then a 5 yard penalty made it 3rd and 10. In a shrinking pocket, Wilson rifles it to Rice for a 15 yard gain.
Conversely, on a crucial 3rd and 10 for Stafford in the red zone, he had a much easier job. He sat in the pocket, and his RB was wide open on a angle (what's the name again? It was on chalk talk) route. He was wide open. WIDE OPEN. Stafford throws the easy ball for a big conversion. QB rating has no idea what just happened, and it's a normal 10 yard completion. QBR factors in the clutch situation (if he doesn't make this, then a field goal must be attempted), and how easy it was to checkdown to the RB.
I honestly have no idea how you can defend the old QB rating compared to new QBR.
And BTW, when you said it means that you have a 93.7% chance of winning, I don't think so (maybe I read it wrong?) because football is still a TEAM SPORT
. Even a normal special teamer can ruin your chances of winning the game (hello Kyle Williams!). And even if it is a 93.7% chance of winning, did you factor in the 6.4% chance of losing?
And still, football is a team sport. That's just how good Wilson was in the game. Not how good his WR's played, or the defense.
Game, set, and match.
