Statistics have been used for many years in sports in order to provide players with an idea of how well they did during a game; however, baseball was the first sport to take the statistics and use them in a way to get a better sense of what they needed to do in order to win. There have been many statistics systems in football developed in order for fans to better understand the game as well as allow for fans to participate in the game through events like fantasy football. Consequently, the National Football League (NFL) continues to work on developing different models that fans and even the coaches can use to better understand the game and the capability of the players. I understand the growing desire to better determine the ability of the players. Hence, I have chosen to look at the current system in place for rating quarterbacks so that I can determine its accessibility as well as to test new systems that I hope to develop that will hopefully be more accessible and possibly rate the quarterback as a whole rather than just as a passer.
