    It is almost too much to take...

    Campbell takes over division QBR lead

    By Bill Williamson

    Let’s look at how the AFC West’s four quarterbacks rated in ESPN Stats & Information’s Total QBR:

    Jason Campbell, Oakland

    Week 2 QBR: 93.3

    Weekly NFL ranking: 2

    Season QBR: 71.3

    Season NFL ranking: 9

    Comment: If Campbell can keep this up, the Raiders are going to win a lot of games.

    Philip Rivers, San Diego

    Week 2 QBR: 74.4

    Weekly NFL ranking: 10

    Season QBR: 60.9

    Season NFL ranking: 11

    Comment: Rivers is good as always, but he has some key mistakes.

    Kyle Orton, Denver

    Week 2 QBR: 39.5

    Weekly NFL ranking: 25

    Season QBR: 26

    Season NFL ranking: 35.1

    Comment: Orton has to improve if the Broncos are going to win consistently.

    Matt Cassel, Kansas City

    Week 2 QBR: 27.1

    Weekly NFL ranking: 30

    Season QBR: 30

    Season NFL ranking: 16.4

    Comment: A lot is going wrong in Kansas City and Cassel isn’t helping matters.

    We'll see if Campbell can keep up those stats after 8 games.

    Let's see what he does when he's not facing bottom feeder teams like the Bills and Broncos

    Don't get to worked up over it. His rating is going to go WAY down as the season progresses and they stop playing weak teams.

    I disagree. He hasn't had much opportunity in his NFL career. I think he's never had an offensive coordinator stick around for more than 2 seasons or something like that.

    With the Oak running game it's going to open things up for him. Loss of Miller will hurt

    Still a Campbell fan, and not just because he used to be the only other Starting QB wearing the # 17. Why is that no one else (QBs)wears 17?? or 18 for that matter?? 12 gets used.

    I agree. IIRC he's had to learn a new offensive scheme pretty much every year in the league. Not to mention he's played on some downright terrible teams. Campbell is not a bad QB but has struggled more as a result of his situation(s).

    Fine, he's sucked in most of the systems he's played in, he's decent in Oakland.

    he was okay with Skins.. lol
    but he's definitely a paper champ at a 93.3 passer rating.

    It's only been 2 games. If he ends up a higher rated QB than Rivers, I'll buy his jersey.

    I doubt it bothers Rivers.

    agreed. Alot of this "total qb rating" is based on things beyond the qbs control and more on coaching, team play etc... If rivers has amazing offense and goes 0-1 on third down because he only needs to third downs because he gets a first every two downs why should that make his total qbr worse?

    To be honest I assure you of one thing. PR could give a rats *** if Jason Campbell leads the QBR. That stat they formulated this year is a joke. I will bet loads of money that says PR's QB Rating will dwarf that of Campbells at the end of the season regardless of the QBR.

    Still trying to figure out the use of this new system.

    its just espn. They aren't supposed to give old qb ratings or something. I think they are trying to make money selling it to the nfl.
