How to identify NFL's best quarterbacks New RATING SYSTEM!

Ran accross this article over at ESPN and thought it waws a good read, especially since both Jimmy and Dereck made the list.

By Mike Sando

The late Don Smith never claimed his passer-rating formula was perfect.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

"Some people call it a quarterback rating system, but that really is not what it is," Smith told me during a 2002 interview. "It’s simply a passing statistic."

I've actually defended Smith's rating system because the quarterbacks with the highest ratings -- Tom Brady, Philip Rivers and Aaron Rodgers led the way last season -- usually are the best quarterbacks. But there's so much more to quarterbacking than passing stats for touchdowns, interceptions, attempts, completions and yardage.

Game situations should count for something, and now they do.

Personally, I think this article address some off my concerns about QB evaluations from the fan perspective all the way to a TV analyst.

Thoughts?
