Welcome to the QBS2 Database:

Mission Statement: QBS2 was developed to analyze, assess and compare the careers of NFL quarterbacks across multiple generations. The QBS2 formula provides a foundation to make this possible by using a single-season grading system that ranges from 100.00 to negative numbers. The QBS2 Database gathers info recorded from 78 years of NFL football, and ten years of AFL football. Here, you will see where quarterbacks rank amongst their contemporaries: career-wise, per-prime and per-decade.
