QBR: The stat that loves Russell Wilson
Sun Dec 23, 2012 10:43 pm
  • And hates Colin Kaepernick's performance tonight.

    A flawed stat, but I still enjoy it when it praises the hell out of Russell.

    A 97.6 score.


    Wilson should get respect as a legitimate (and perhaps leading) candidate for offensive rookie of the year. He has eight total touchdowns over the Seahawks' past two games. He trails only Peyton Manning and Tom Brady in Total QBR since Week 2. He trails only Aaron Rodgers and Manning in NFL passer rating over the same period. His 97.6 QBR score Sunday night was the highest in the NFL for Week 16.


    Kaep's performance, a paltry 27.8.

  • Highest QBR for the second straight week, no?
    World Champion Seattle Seahawks football. It's an addiction, and there is no cure.

    Hell yeah! :mrgreen:

    Just wait for FO's QB rankings though. They are gonna love Russell, as they do opponent adjustments while QBR does not. And, Russell converted 11-12 3rd downs, while going 4-4 in the redzone. He's gonna break some DVOA records :mrgreen:

  • ESPN Radio "Experts" say...Luck should be Rookie of the Year. Because ... Luck was asked to do more than RW ...
    When looking at the Colts opponents ... Just laughable analysis.
    RW has beaten all the good QBs in the league: Pats, 49ers, Packers, Cowboyz, Vikings, Bears, ...

    Very true. I have no doubt that RW could put up Luck like numbers if forced into that same role. I think he is clearly the best of the 4 ridiculously good rookie QBs, because he is strong at everything.

  • Colts have had a laughable schedule compared to the Seahawks. He has been asked to do more - but has not done it as well.

    So Stafford for MVP??

    impossibly above the turf – pro football's paean to
    wanton human destruction slips into the sublime.

  • His receivers also made some sweet catches. He puts it where they can catch it, but they are gonna have to work for it.

  • Wilson's passer rating for the season now sits at 98.0. He's just 0.1 points away from passing Big Ben who had the best rookie passer rating in modern NFL history before this season. He is just 0.2 points away from having the highest passer rating season in Seahawks history (Hasselbeck - 2005). And though it's very unlikely, if RG3 craps the bed hard enough against Dallas and Wilson has a game of the year kind of performance against the Rams, Wilson has a tiny chance for finishing the season with the highest rookie QB rating in modern NFL history. That record is RG3's to lose, but it's within striking distance. I doubt it happens though. RG3 is at home and Dallas' secondary has looked pretty vulnerable against upper tier QBs this season, despite having a ton of talent.
