What does completing 6 of 19 passes for 99 yards a

first_imgWhat does completing 6 of 19 passes for 99 yards and threeinterceptions lead to? Well, besides a benching and aloss, a QB rating of 10.5. It’s as bad as it sounds. To be fair to Skelton, it’s not the lowest QB rating inNFL history. According to Wikipedia, as recently as 2007 Atlanta’sChris Redman posted a rating of 0 in a game vs. Tampa Bayafter completing just 4 of 15 passes for 34 yards and twointerceptions. 0 Comments   Share   What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke John Skelton had a brutal Sunday against the 49ers, a gamethat will go down as one of the worst quarterbackingperformances in team history. But it’s not theworst, and that’s something to be happy about.Or maybe not.Arizona Sports’ Vince Marotta contributed to thisreport Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Top Stories But it’s not the worst in Cardinals history, and given themultitude of top notch signal callers whohave called the Valley home, being the best – at being theworst – is actually fairly impressive. In fact, Kent Graham (remember him?) posted a 0.0 ratingin a 1997 game, torching the Giants to the tune of 4 of 14for 40 yards and a pair of picks. Boomer Esiason had somestruggles at New England in 1996, completing just 4 of 12passes for 22 yards and two interceptions. His rating thatday? 2.8. Skelton’s game against the 49ers comes in third, withGraham (again) coming in fourth and Jake Plummer landingin fifth. More recently, Derek Anderson’s 17 of 31, 161 yard, 2interception performance against Atlanta last season,while terrible, was only bad enough for a rating of 42.5. There was nothing funny about Anderson’s game against the49ers later in the season, in which he completed 16 of 35passes for 196 yards and one interception. That left himwith a 51.6 rating. Then again, for all of Anderson’s faults, he wasn’t MaxHall-bad.Hall, in fact, gave Skelton a run for his money with hisstart at Seattle last year, completing just 4 of 16 passesfor 36 yards and one interception, giving him a rating of13.5.
