Well, I have really wanted to find out how to calculate the QB Rating. Needless to say, I literally laughed out loud... and peed a little in my pants when thinking, 'who the hell actually came up with this'!?

1. Divide a quarterback's completed passes by pass attempts.

2. Subtract 0.3.

3. Divide by 0.2 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.

4. Divide passing yards by pass attempts.

5. Subtract 3.

6. Divide by 4 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.

7. Divide touchdown passes by pass attempts.

8. Divide by 0.05 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.

9. Divide interceptions by pass attempts.

10. Subtract that number from 0.095.

11. Divide that product by 0.04 and record the total. The sum cannot be greater than 2.375 or less than zero.

12. Add the four totals you recorded.

13. Multiply that total by 100.

14. Divide by 6.

15. The final number is your quarterback rating.
