Charlie Frye: QB Score: Week 5
Posted by disappointmentzone on 9 October 2006
Through the first five games of the season Charlie Frye has been one of the worst quarterbacks in the league. After yesterday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, Frye has only further solidified his place with the Andrew Walkers and Ben Roethlisbergers of the league, namely, Andrew Walker and Ben Roethlisberger. It’s a select group of the absolute worst quarterbacks this season that still have starting jobs.
Yesterday Frye posted his worst QB Score of the season, -122, and his second-worst QB Score per play of the season, -2.6. Carolina has a solid defense, to be sure, but Frye is utterly prone to turnovers–he now has 12 on the season–and three times in the first five games Frye has committed three turnovers and not once has Frye turned the ball over fewer than two times. I doubt we are approaching a record for turnovers, but winning games when the quarterback averages 2.4 turnovers per game is exceedingly difficult.
Fortunately the Browns have a veteran backup to mentor Frye.
In other Ohio quarterback news,
Brad Gradkowski Rock Stiffler, former Toledo and current Tampa Bay QB, started the first game of his career yesterday. His QB Score was 71 and his QB Score per play was a very respectable 1.8.
[NOTE: QB Score does not necessarily represent an accurate account of a quarterback’s skill. Charlie Frye having low QB Scores could easily be a reflection of the quality of players surrounding him. This should be noted. Now it is.]
