ESPN saw people complaining that passer rating didn't account for 'clutch' moments, nor did it account for rushing...so what ESPN did was create a stat that puts all the emphasis on TDs/yards/INTs scored late in games when the score is close.
read the bold
minimum situations are worth 0.3
maximum is worth 3.0
That means a TD scored late in the 4th is worth 10x more than a TD early in the 1st.
In other words, ESPN created QBR as a way to make stat padders in garbage time and against prevent defenses look better than they really are.
As in, ESPN created the stat to slobber on the knobs of guys like Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers.....and now it is backfiring on them, because the stat is so ridiculous.
