hondo in seattle Posted October 12, 2021 Share Posted October 12, 2021 I noticed that Allen is currently ranked #6 in QBR and #14 in Passer Rating. I've never been a huge fan of either but now, more than ever, I question how they rank QBs. Allen is the offensive centerpiece of the highest scoring team in the NFL. Yet he's not a top five QB? Maybe not top 10? Maybe just average? I get it. His completion percentage isn't what it should be. And there's been some really good QB play this year so other guys get ranked higher. Still, the goal of any QB is top put points on the board. Allen does that better than anyone. It's worth mentioning that the Bills don't run a balanced offense. It's a QB-centric offense. When we do run, it's either because the D is selling out to stop the pass and/or to remind the D we actually have RBs who we hand the brick to now and then. Or we're letting Josh run the ball. At the beginning and end of the day, this offense is about Josh Allen. And despite being the driving force of the most prolific offense in the NFL this season, the ranking systems don't rate Allen as a top tier QB. Somehow the rating systems should evaluate how well a QB moves his team down the field and into the end zone (or FG position). Completion percentage doesn't tell the whole store. Nor yardage totals. Nor yards per attempt. Nor TD and INT percentages. If Passer Rating and QBR don't in some way measure points produced by a QB, what good are they? Because that's what a coach - or fan - really wants to know. How well does a QB lead his team to paydirt? Allen is currently the best at that. And the rating systems should reflect that. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
