Total QBR was created by ESPN to evaluate a Quarterback’s total contribution to the game. This would concern not only his passing numbers (as does the traditional Quarterback Rating), but it would also include his sacks, fumbles, his running ability, and penalties incurred.
I think it’s safe to say that the traditional Quarterback Passer Rating is outdated. I’d venture to say that 99.9% of today’s fans and experts could not recite the formula for today’s passer rating. I mean, who designs a system where 158.3 is the maximum rating? I think you take Pi – 3.1415926525 – More >

While I have been a Texas Rangers fan most of my life, I have really enjoyed watching them more the past few years than in the past. One might argue that is because they have been pretty freaking hot in the past few years (until they were one strike away from winning the World Series, that is). However, that is not why my level of enjoyment has increased.
If you have not spent much time watching the Rangers, prior to playoffs, much of their antics may seem odd. You see them behave more like a team of More >

Well, I started this as a reply to an article that I had read on here and I didn’t want to seem like I was hijacking the very well written article, so I decided to just make this its own separate thread.
Now, I can only speak from my experiences and my love of the hobby, so that is what I will use as a primary example to address some of the issues I’ve seen that others have with the hobby. (A.K.A.-The ramblings of an old man!)

There’s something I haven’t been able to understand for a while now. Something that has really bothered me . We all sit down to watch out favorite sports whether it is football, baseball, basketball ,hockey and even racing. The one thing I always ask myself now is ; “ Where has the passion in the sport gone?” A lot of people will argue that it is still there, and there is nothing wrong in the world of sports today, is that the truth though?
It’s not just one specific player or one specific team, who are guilty More >

Like many others, I am a big believer that teams such as Boise State deserve just as much of a chance of earning the title of college football’s national champion as schools from the power conference do, but under the current system, everyone knows it’s pretty unlikely to happen.
That, however, hasn’t stopped one writer from continuing to vote the Broncos as the No. 1 team in the weekly Associated Press poll, which does count when the Bowl Championship Series rankings are tabulated.
And it’s not a Broncos beat writer, either.

Part of growing up in Louisiana is the expectation of bleeding purple and gold. Anyone who has ever come into Louisiana realizes that the state is as much a part of the “Tiger Belt” as it is the “Bible Belt”. While it is a forgivable sin for people in North LA to be Cowboys fans rather than Saints fans, there is NO forgiveness for those who are fans of ANY team other than the LSU Tigers. That being said, while I was born in Louisiana, all earlier generations of my family were born, bred, and raised More >
