The following scores are “good” through September 29, 2021.

There is a healthy battle within the stat community over which quarterback stat is the most coherent. Passer rating is bashing as too outdated. When used to compare quarterbacks from eras of yore, passers-by’s assessment is indeed skewed and inflated. But touchdowns, passing yards, interception and percentage of completion will never be completely irrelevant.

ESPN’s QBR would take into account more intangible type ratings. It can be interpreted as a more detailed and extended version of passer rating and then some.

Pro Football Focus uses its rating system to rate each game’s x’s and o’s and pump out an annual score.

The following scores and rankings are weighted. Passer rating accounts for 20% of the score, QBR at 40%, and PFF at 40%. Players with a skill position and players with minor passing attempts were excluded.
