    Tannehill 5th Ranked as a "Passer"

    Originally from an article on the Sen Sentinel site:

    'What's interesting (as Alert E-mailer "Larry Larry" pointed out) is that Tannehill ranks fifth when only the passing component of the QBR is figured. Brady, more in keeping with what you might expect, is fourth. In fact, the passing-only filter includes many of the names you'd expect (in order): Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers, Drew Brees, Brady, Tannehill, Matt Ryan, Tony Romo, Russell Wilson, Ben Roethlisberger and Matthew Stafford."

    Angry Deniers. A bunch of agenda-driven whiny clowns whose sole mission is to deny anything good that Tannehill has done and deny anything bad that the "gods of quarterbacks" have done.

    No!!!!....It cant be.It's basically his EPA rating.

    Someone cue Shouright to come in and steer you to some obscure NFL site in the edge of the universe with ratings he likes....

    * Season Leaders: On pace for 250 action plays.
    * All-time data reflects 2006 onwards.
    PASS EPA: Clutch-weighted expected points added on plays with pass attempts.
    RUN EPA: Clutch-weighted expected points added through scrambles, designed rushes and fumbles/fumble returns on running plays.
    SACK EPA: Clutch-weighted expected points added (lost) on sacks.
    PEN EPA: Clutch-weighted expected points added on penalties.
    TOTAL EPA: Total clutch-weighted expected points added.
    ACT PLAYS: Plays on which the QB has a non-zero expected points contribution. Includes most plays that are not handoffs.
    QB PAR: Number of points contributed by a quarterback over the season, accounting for QBR and how much he plays, above the level of a quarterback who plays very rarely and is on the fringe of the NFL.
    QB PAA: Number of points contributed by a quarterback over the season, accounting for QBR and how much he plays, above the level of an average quarterback.
    TOTAL QBR: Total Quarterback Rating, which values quarterback on all play types on a 0-to-100 scale.

    I see Brett Favre Marc Bulger Kurt Warner Chad Pennington,could it be true Shouright doesnt understand how to use ESPN 2013 QBR page?

    Is this possible?...the king of stats?...I am extremely disappointed if thats the case.

    EPA = "clutch-weighted expected points added on plays with pass attempts"

    This gives us absolutely ZERO clue how it is calculated. All I know is that he led 4th quarter game winning drives against Superbowl-winning HCs and QBs in back to back weeks, one of which was on the road in the snow... If that is bottom-ranked EPA, so be it!

    I hate the "passer" label. WTF else should a QB be judged upon? "Man, he is the best at handed off the ball!" Just dumb. People say Marino was the best passer ever but a lot say not the best QB. How ignorant. A QB IS a PASSER. A running back is a runner. A WR catches the ball. The o-line blocks. ETC...ETC...ETC... The only thing a QB should ultimately be judged on IS AS A PASSER.

    I love Tannehill but to single out one part of QBR doesn't prove anything. His total QBR is pretty low. 25th in the league. My eyes tell me has has been a top 15 QB at worst this year and that is my favorite stat.

    Everything about QBR is trash and if it says Tannehill is the 5th best passer in the NFL, whoop dee doo.

    They won't even reveal the full methodology they use to compute QBR.
    "Society became divided into camps in which no man trusted his fellow. To put an end to this, there was neither promise to be depended upon, nor oath that could command respect; but all parties dwelling rather in their calculation upon the hopelessness of a permanent state of things, were more intent upon self-defence than capable of confidence." - Thucydides, probably predicting the rise of internet message boards
