Interesting. Another good indicator for Teddy?
Standardized completion percentage gives truer version of accuracy
tandardized completion percentage gives a quarterback credit for completing those short passes, but the credit he receives depends on how often an average quarterback would throw that pass. At its core, standardized completion percentage is similar to effective field goal percentage in basketball because it accounts for the distance of a quarterback’s pass, just as effective field goal percentage accounts for both 2- and 3-pointers. This stat also eliminates dropped passes and throwaways, because drops are not the quarterback’s fault and throwaways are generally a good decision.

In the last three seasons, the top three players in standardized completion percentage entering the draft were Russell Wilson, Robert Griffin III and Teddy Bridgewater. All three have had above-average Total QBRs since entering the NFL and have a combined 56-39 regular-season record.

Perhaps but when I read criteria as subjective as "... but the credit he receives depends on how often an average quarterback would throw that pass" I tend to dismiss a stat's value pretty quickly.

ESPN: Style over substance
As bad as their silly QBR. They're just creating content for themselves.

I really like the QBR. In my opinion, it is a much better indicator of how a WB performed than the QB rating.
