Passer Ratings

I used to do this every game.  I'm going to try it again.  I'm not sure if anyone even checks this community any more, but I'll soon find out.

First off, an explanation of how they figure the passer rating:
Each category (completion percent, yards per attempt, percent touchdowns and percent interceptions) has a factor ranging from 0 to 2.375.
--Completion percent minus 30, then divide the result by 20.
--Yds per attempt minus 3, then divide the result by 4
--TD percent divided by 5
--INT percent divided by 4, then subract that from 2.375
If an individual factor is less than 0 it becomes 0, and if it's above 2.375 it becomes 2.375.
The 4 factors are added, then multiplied by 100 and divided by 6.  This gives the final passer rating.  The formula was created so that a value of 1 for each category (66.7 rating) was average, while a rating of 100 (1.5 per category) would be exceptional.  The maximum sum of the numbers is 9.5 for a maximum passer rating of 158.3.

Now for the ratings from this week:

<u>Rodgers</u>
Att: 34
Comp: 20 (58.82 pct); 1.441
Yds: 199
Yds/Att: 5.85; .712 (By far his weekest category this week)
TD: 2 (5.88 pct); 1.177
INT: 0 (0 pct); 2.375
Total: 5.706 for a rating of 95.10
Not a bad rating by NFL standards.  A bit on the disappointing side by Rodgers' standards.

<u>Blake Bortles</u>
Att: 39
Comp: 24 (61.54 pct); 1.577
Yds: 320
Yds/Att: 8.21; 1.301
TD: 1 (2.56 pct); 0.513
INT: 1 (2.56 pct); 1.734
Total of 5.125 for a rating of 85.417

I figured there would still be a couple of fellow lurkers in the neighborhood. :)
