So I just remembered that there is a new QB rating that is going into effect....this rating tracks every aspect of a QB (td, int, fumbs, difference between a 5yd dump that goes 50yac...and a 50 deep pass...when it occurred and with a difference between if it's a blowout, or tight game or a comeback ...etc)...Plus it's handy because it's a simple 0-100 scale, so much more straight forward than the previous scale.
75-100 = MVP
65-75 = ProBowl level
35-65 = Average
0-35 = Poor
ESPN decided to compile a list of all the QB's from 2008-2010 ...can anyone find where Hasselbeck is?
Hint...he's below 50
(answers: 72 (2010), 90 (2008) and 95(2009) out of 100)
Hasselbeck ranked out with a high of 42.4, then 30.9 and finally 26.7 giving us a Total QB Rating of 33.33 for the last 3 seasons. OUCH. I love Hass and everything he's done for the Hawks...but if anyone had any doubts that it was time to move on or not...I think this is a pretty good indication. You can't really do much worse than what we were given these last three years.
Here's the Video/Article with an explanation of the new rating:
