    according to footballoutsiders.com

    and 12th best throughout the whole season, which is amazing considering he only played in 4 1/2 games.


    Someone on this forum told me

    DPAR = whole season
    DVOA = how they are playing right now

    i bow down to "The Romo":bow: :bow:

    IMHO, at "THIS POINT", Romo is the best QB in the NFC. Again, IMHO....

    So Pro Bowl.

    Not quite. DPAR is total value, and DVOA is value per play (for the entire season, not just "right now"). The difference is like the difference between total yards and yards per carry for running backs. Some guys get more chances than others -- some backs run the ball more, and some quarterbacks throw the ball more or run it more.

    Romo's "total value" would be lower because he hasn't played the whole season. He had no value for the games he didn't play. But when he has played, he has been the third-best quarterback, according to their formula.

    D. Huard is rated 4th. That kinda threw a little water on the fire. JMO.

    Huard was playing pretty good in Trent's stead
