Sanchez's ESPN QBR Rating!??!?!
So as we all know, ESPN came up with the new QBR rating for Quarterbacks, which is on a scale from 1-100. The best scores are typically around 80-90 (This week's best score is Ryan Fitzpatrick's 91.2).
However, Sanchez, despite completing 60% of his passes for over 320 yards and 2 TD's, has the 4th LOWEST QBR in the LEAGUE!! That's 30th best in the league! 30TH?!?!? ESPN has Sanchez at an embarrassing 17.6 QBR, behind:
Colt McCoy (19-40, 213 yds, 2 td, 1 int)
McNabb (7-15, 39 yds, 1 td, 1 int)
Tavaris Jackson (21-37, 197 yds, 2 td, 1 int)
Sam Bradford (17-30, 188 yds, 0 tds, 0 int)
I wouldn't say Sanchez had a GREAT game, but definitely a decent one and CERTAINLY not the 4th worst game in the league. His NORMAL QB Rating is 88.7, good for 17th best in the league. That makes much more sense and feels about right.
I'm calling shennanigans on ESPN's QBR!!!!
