QB Passing TD's 4pts or 6pts

Postby Cee Rud » Mon Jul 02, 2007 12:55 pm

Our current scoring is 6 pts for a passing TD and -3 for an INT. I've spent many offseasons in this league trying to convince the other owners to change this to the standard 4 pts for a passing TD and -2 for an interception. The arguments I often receive back are that since we only start 1 QB it should count for more and that if we score 4 points for a TD we shouldn't take anything off for interceptions because then QB's wouldn't score enough. It just doesn't make sense to me to count 3 QB TD's as 50% more than 2 rushing TD's based on opportunity alone but I just haven't been able to convince the league. What does everyone else think?

I have no problem with 4 or 6 for a passing TD, but I do think that -3 is a lot for an INT. I would like it at -1 or -2 at the most

Try to sell this... We do it.

6 points for a passing TD outside the 30 yd line.
3 points for a passing TD from the 30 in.
-2 for int.
We also have points per passing yards
1 for every 20 until 200 and then
1 for every 10 after 200

The QB touch s the ball on every play. Set it to 4 Pts for passing TD. -1 for INT. -3 is way too much.

this is a common balance argument.. i see two possible scoring systems with these to
4 points/TD... 20 yds/point -2/int
6 points/TD... 25 yds/1 point -2/int

i do agree 6 points is to many which is why i use 4

an argument
QB throws for 150 yards 2 TD's/1 int..with 6 points/TD this QB scoes 16 points (equal to a RB or WR going for 100 and a TD)

With 4 points/TD this QB scores only 13.5 points which seems to fit the production of his stats. That way a guy who only gets these mediocore stats wont equal the production of a RB or reciever who has an above average week

I actually use the QB yardage to balance the equation... I give the QB the 6 for the TD and -2 for an picks, but he only gets a point for every 45 yds.

My feeling is its a 50/50 whether the ball gets run or thrown in, so the QB still has alot of risk to merit the 6pts for a TD. However, he's throwing all the time, and the yardage needs to get knocked down so it doesn't get out of hand.

I don't get that. Wouldn't you want to reward consistent play, versus a freak 3 TD game occasionally?

I see consistent play as being able to pass a TD into the end zone, which is pretty difficult especially with short yardage. If I was to set QB yardage at like 25 than QBs on teams with crappy defenses and insane passers (read: Peyton Manning) would go insane. Think about it... you could be like John Kitna, just air the ball like a madman, get ntercepted 22 times, and STILL score a retarded amount of points.

No, winning the game is getting the ball into the end zone, and accurate passing is the QB's skill (hitting the target) I want to reward. Hitting people in the open field is nice, but it isn't going to win the game in RL and it shouldn't in FL.

Instead of focusing on the negative (-2 for INT), give bonus points for higher rating. Try this on for size...

Passing TD = 6pts
Passing Yds = 1pt per 25yds
INT = 0
+ Passer Rating Bonus (must have 12 attempts to qualify):
0-89.9 = 0
90 - 99.9 = 4
100 - 109.9 = 5
110 - 119.9 = 6
120 - 129.9 = 7
130 - 139.9 = 8
140 - 149.9 = 9
150 - 158.2 = 10
158.3 = 15
