While I was on the way home from Sunday’s game, I was listening to Frank Herzog’s radio show. One thing that Herzog kept railing on was Mark Brunell’s quarterback rating of 66 for the day. That is a pretty bad rating, but thanks to Rat Boy, Webmaster extraordinaire at Warpathinsiders.com (from where these ramblings originate), here is the difference between what his rating would have been without that cheap penalty on the touchdown to Portis:
Without that penalty:
26/45, 57.78%, 261 yards, 5.8 YPA, 3 TD’s, 1 INT, 87.36 Rating
Of course, he’s adding in the yardage and TD for the Portis play, taking out the interception that came on the very next play and assuming that Brunell throws no more passes on the day.
A rating of 87 on the season is pretty good; you’re in Favre, Brady, and Warner territory there. A 66 for the season you’re, well, Mark Brunell.
