    the rating doesn't just add up numbers

    it'd be a zero if his 4 incompletes were interceptions

    to me if he was 0-4 with 4 ints then he ought to be in the negative not just zero

    Maybe you get points for successful hand-offs.

    rating only takes passing related stuff into consideration. it's called the "passer" rating and not the "qb" rating

    gotcha.. just weird to me on stat wise that you get a passing rating when you don't complete anything ...

    maybe it is like baseball.. go 0-2 with 2 walks... your on base average is .500 but batting average is still 0.0


    oh well

    that's pretty much the way it is. passer rating grades you out on efficiency, so a QB who is 0-4 with no INTs is more efficient than a QB who is 0-4 with 4 INTs.
