Jumping back in to the QE rating (name pending)

Yesterday I introduced you to a new metric, the 'CQE', it was an attempt by a friend of mine to distill passer ratings into three basic areas: Yards per attempt, touchdown % and interception %. After reading the comments here on CSR and getting come outside opinion he has tweaked the numbers under the hood by examining NFL trends and averages since the merger.

This is very much still a work in progress, but under his new system I feel it's even closer to replicating a fair and accurate QB rating. As it stands he doesn't want to get into the formula too much because he wants to get pure opinions based on if you think these numbers hold water. It values touchdowns a little more, which gives a very definite bump to a QB like Ryan Fitzpatrick.

After the jump I'll give you the current standings for 2011, and give you the ratings we have for the top 5 QBs of all time using this system. Basically let us know if you think this passes the eye/opinion test of who the best QBs are. The more feedback he gets, the better he can hone the system.
