    Wow who knew Brady's performances were that great, especially compared to Aaron Rodgers who's having an all time great season.

    Impressive. I think you meant DYAR in the title though.

    I hate these threads, and that website.

    The whole thing confuses the hell out of me

    DYAR is actually one of the more intuitive stats. The number is how many yards (adjusted) Tom Brady gets above a statistically average replacement QB.

    Yeah I made a typo and am new to this so I don't know how to fix the title.

    What is this I don't even. Every single one of the mentioned games was a dominating win.

    I'm not familiar with this stat. It seems that every organization is coming out with their own rating system. Personally, I trust my own eyes to tell if someone he's played well.

    What's DYAR? Is it the same thing ESPN came up with this year?

    DYAR adjusts for the quality of the pass defense faced, which is a great way of measuring QB play.

    DYAR is Football Outsiders "Defense-adjusted Yards Above Replacement" statistic. Definitely not that silly TQBR thing ESPN came up with.

    For all the talk about Rodgers season, no one is talking about what a joke their schedule has been.

    NFL Stats: by Team Category

    The Packers have had a very easy schedule. Scroll to the bottom of this list sorted by Opposing QB passer rating - they have faced the Vikings twice (31st), Chargers (30th), Panthers (29th), Broncos (28th) & Bucs (27th).

    That means, of the 6 WORST passing defenses in the league, the Packers have played 5 of them, for a total of 6 games.

    That's a tremendously easy schedule for a QB.

    On the flip side, Brady has faced 5 of the BEST 12 defenses in the league for a total of 6 games. Rodgers has only had two of such games.

    Lions & Giants are going to be the Packers toughest tests this year. And until Suh was tossed from that game, the Packers weren't exactly rolling over them. I expect the Giants to do a decent job against Rodgers this weekend.

    If Brady is healthy, he will roll through the rest of the schedule and will wind up with stats that compare to Rodgers, and with the proper context, demand him being taken as an MVP candidate.

    I'm not a big stats guy, but football outsiders has opened my eyes a bunch over the past few years. They've done a great job of taking an incredibly complicated game and finding the best way to represent it statistically. DYAR is not only a great stat for professional football, but I know of a few highschool teams that are using it to gauge their effectiveness in the spread passing game. That speaks to it's value, as highschool tends to be a first adopter yet one of the hardest levels to gain traction in.
