Final Ultimate Quarterback Efficiency Rating 2009

Author's Blog Note: This Blog origionally appeared as a hugely successful thread, successful like the career of Ben Roethlisberger, currently the most efficient quarterback in the NFL at winning Super Bowls. It first appeared on February 9th 2010 at 10:44am as a poll, results of which at blog posting time posted at the bottom. It has been corrected for a few minor errors that did not affect the ultimate outcome of this calculation, notably that Big Ben is #1.

Author's note: I have been patiently awaiting the season's end to present you with this gem, enjoy!

This thread presents the Final Ultimate Quarterback Efficency Rating for the end of the 2009 NFL Season. Since it is concerned only with the ultimate goal of the NFL Season, winning the Super Bowl, it will only deal with quarterback efficiency in that, the single most important regard. It will not deal with silly performance stats such as YPA or total yardage, or any other non ultimate stat that are also the product of team efforts just as much as Super Bowl wins. The F.U.Q.E.R. is calculated the following way:

The F.U.Q.E.R.= (Total number of Super Bowl wins - total number of Super Bowl losses)*16 games/games played
The higher the number, the better the QB. This shows the QB's true efficiency at getting the job done.
(Note: for negative F.U.Q.E.Rs take the absolute value, the smaller the number, the worse the QB)

However, there is also another, much easier calculation that will get you roughly the same results, but without the same high degree of accuracy. The Earned Actuals Sorted Yearly Final Ultimate Quarterback Efficiency Rating is that amazing metric.
This is known as the E.A.S.Y. F.U.Q.E.R The E.A.S.Y. F.U.Q.E.R. is calculated as follows:

E.A.S.Y. F.U.Q.E.R. = (Total number of Super Bowl wins - total number of Super Bowl losses)/years played
The higher the number, the better the QB.
(Note: for negative E.A.S.Y. F.U.Q.E.Rs take the absolute value, the smaller the number, the worse the QB)
This is intended to be a fast and loose calculation and often is just used to get an idea, not true rate differences.

Finally there is a third F.U.Q.E.R calculation for those too feebleminded to appreciate the utter shame and ignominy of losing a Super Bowl. For these people in order to soothe their wimpy squemishness, losses have been removed so that it will be easier on their poor little tear ducts.
This calculation is known as the Simple F.U.Q.E.R, which is calculated as such:

Simple F.U.Q.E.R. = (Super Bowl wins / years played)
Once again, The higher the number, the better the QB.

Now since only quarterbacks who have positive net Super Bowl wins are even cabable of having a relevent F.U.Q.E.R., only they, and those with a negative F.U.Q.E.R (Just to make fun of them) will be mentioned. All Zero F.U.Q.E.R.s will not be mentioned as they are complete ZEROS.

Again please note negative F.U.Q.E.R.s are not directly comparable to positive F.U.Q.E.R.s, they are listed only to note their ineptness.

Here are are eligible current participants and pertinent stats:

Brett Favre- games 313 seasons 19 SBWon 1 SBLost 1
Kurt Warner- games 137 seasons 12 SBWon 1 SBLost 2
Tom Brady- games 147 seasons 10 SBWon 3 SBLost 1
Jake Delhomme- games 105 seasons 11 SBWon 0 SBLost 1
Donovan McNabb- games 164 seasons 11 SBWon 0 SBLost 1
Ben Roethlisberger- games 97 seasons 6 SBWon 2 SBLost 0
Matt Hasselbeck- games 165 seasons 11 SBWon 0 SBLost 1
Peyton Manning- games 210 seasons 12 SBWon 1 SB Lost 1
Rex Grossman- games 41 seasons 7 SBWon 0 SBLost 1
Eli Manning- games 96 seasons 6 SBWon 1 SBLost 0
Drew Brees- games 128 seasons 9 SBWon 1 SBLost 0

And here are their 3 F.U.Q.E.R.s:

The F.U.Q.E.R.s (best to worst)
#1 Ben Roethlisberger 0.329
#2 Tom Brady 0.217
#3 Eli Manning 0.166
#4 Drew Brees 0.125

(Complete Zero - ineligible) Brett Favre, and Peyton Manning.

Negative F.U.Q.E.R.s (worst to best)
#1 Matt Hasselbeck 0.969
#2 Donovan McNabb 0.975
#3 Rex Grossman 0.390
#4 Jake Delhomme 0.152
#5 Kurt Warner 0.117


E.A.S.Y. F.U.Q.E.R.s
#1 Ben Roethlisberger 0.333
#2 Tom Brady 0.200
#3 Eli Manning 0.166
#4 Drew Brees 0.111

(Complete Zero - ineligible) Brett Favre, Kurt Warner, and Peyton Manning.

Negative E.A.S.Y. F.U.Q.E.R.s (worst to best)
#1 Matt Hasselbeck 0.091 tie
#1 Donovan McNabb 0.091 tie
#1 Jake Delhomme 0.091 tie
#4 Rex Grossman 0.143


Simple F.U.Q.E.R.s
#1 Ben Roethlisberger 0.333
#2 Tom Brady 0.300
#3 Eli Manning 0.166
#4 Drew Brees 0.111
#5 Peyton Manning 0.083
#6 Kurt Warner 0.083
#7 Brett Favre 0.052

So, out of all the eligible F.U.Q.E.R.s, Ben Roethlisberger is the best, the most efficient at getting the job done. It really isn't hard to see,so E.A.S.Y. F.U.Q.E.R.s shows Ben to be the best as well. And even for you brain damaged people who think losing the Super Bowl doesn't matter, you can see, Simple F.U.Q.E.R.s, Ben is still the best, do you get it now?

Note for idiots: All stats including wins are team efforts, so don't waste your pea brained wits saying, "but Championships are team stats" because that means you are too dumb to live.

Final Ultimate Quarterback Efficiency Rating 2009

Just browsing through my profile and seeing a few blog posts and this one caught my attention.  As a fellow Steelers fan, my only criticisms are these:

1) Technically, Potato Salad won the poll.

2) Ben Roethlisberger may have his off the field problems, but I don't think he's the top fuqer in the league. Tongue out  Clever acronym though.  I dig it.

Steeler fans get desperate for anyone to listen to the Ben myth.

Poor little Solomom.....he hates that Ben Roethlisberger on a good day is merely an average QB.

But unlike his rabblings and made up stats, it's the truth.

Soloman does equal Genius.  But Potato Salad:  isn't there any possible way to torture the data to keep Ben Roethlisberger from even talking to any women? Billy Graham (yes, that guy) said he never rode in a plane, drove in a car, or even rode in an elevator with a woman in it unless his wife was there to keep the spectre of scandal away.
