BadQBing.com returns for another season of the Bad Quarterbacks League on Fantasizr!
BadQBing.com is a team of bad quarterbacking die-hards committed to covering those that play the NFL's paramount position most poorly. In addition to the score keeping duties, we will be providing additional analysis and commentary throughout the season.
For those new to the Bad Quarterback League, it is a non-traditional fantasy league where you draft teams with bad quarterbacks instead of actual players. Each week, your starters are scored based on the scoring table below. The worse the quarterback performance, the higher the score!
We will continue to use the scoring system inspired by Grantland's Failure Machine. Scoring categories and details are outlined below. All scoring decisions are at the sole discretion of BadQBing Supplementary League Oversight Board. Fantasizr offers up both public and private leagues, which are also outlined below. Scores will be updated by Tuesday each week, although delays are always possible. Any changes or updates will be provided via our Twitter account.
On behalf of BadQBing.com, welcome to BQBL 2018! We look forward to another year of abysmally laughable quarterback action!
Follow us on Twitter for league news and updates!
Public Leagues consist of 8 teams composed of 4 NFL teams. Private Leagues can have a variable number of teams in a league, and a variable number of NFL teams on each BQBL team. These settings can be changed by the private league commissioner prior to the draft. By default, all teams are on the active roster each week. To change this in private leagues, enable "Manage Lineups" under "Edit League Info," and set your desired number of starting teams. BadQBing.com recommends 2 starters each week. In our own league, we require 4 starts from each team prior to our playoffs.
NFL teams are drafted, not individual players. Stats for all quarterbacks that play in a game will count toward the weekly score. 24/7 points are scored to the week beginning the Tuesday prior to games through the end of Monday, i.e., 24/7 points are scored for the days leading up to the current week's games. Any judgement calls on scoring decisions lie solely with the BadQBing.com Supplementary League Oversight Board.

That's All Folks!
Well, there you have it. Another BQBL season in the books. As always, it goes by far too fast, and it doesn't start again for far too long. We'll try to pop in here and there during the offseason, but we plan to see you all, and hopefully even more, for the 2019 season.
There's a reason that fantasy leagues have their playoffs end before week 17. By that point you have teams sitting starters for the playoffs and teams that have written off the season as playoffs are a pipe dream, all resulting in the likelihood of wonky stats and junk play. This week 17 was no different.
There were 11 teams that failed to complete a pass of 25+ yards, a season high. The next highest all season was in week 14 at 9. Total turnovers were a...

BQBL 2018 Year In Review
Season’s greetings BQBLers! I can’t believe it, but the penultimate week of the 2018 BQBL is in the rear view mirror, and the final week is ahead of us. The NFL season goes by far too fast, but we thought it would be nice to look back on some of our favorite, and maybe not so favorite, stories throughout the year. And since everyone is doing a year in review, this seems like the perfect time.
Everyone knew going into the season that the Buffalo Bills were going to be great. When you have to dig into preseason footage to compile a 37 second hype video for your starting quarterback, you know you’re desperate. That’s like adding your time at McDonald’s to your resume to make it look like you have a mor...

BQBL: The Gift That Keeps On Giving
Greetings BQBLers! It’s been a busy year so far, and Week 15 was no exception. With only a couple weeks remaining in the season, there is plenty left to pay attention to in the standings. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but the Cardinals have actually surpassed Buffalo in the cumulative standings, and show no signs of slowing. In addition to keeping on top of some of the more impressive BQBL performances this year, we also had a scoring situation to take a look at. Let’s see how it all shook out.
It seems like awhile since we’ve touched on our classic BQBL favorite. In fact, I don’t think we’ve even expanded on the benching of Blake Bortles. Probably the only thing more enjoyable t...

It's The Final Countdown
Greetings BQBLers! I hope this game log finds you well. I know it has been a difficult year for some, but we’re almost to the end. For owners like me that are already out of their league playoffs, I hope you can still find joy in bad quarterbacking these last few weeks. For those of you still in the playoffs, or holding on to your spot in cumulative points, the end is in sight. Let’s get right into with this week’s action!
FINALLY we can talk about the Redskins being absolutely 100% just plain terrible instead of having to sidestep around the terrible injuries to the QB spot. The starter going into week 14 was none other than BQBL legend Mark Sanchez. There was even talk about him being more t...

We're Still Here, Even If BQBL Gods Aren't
Greetings BQBLers! It seems like forever and a day since we last talked, but I assure you, we’re still here. While the game logs have slowed a little, we keep cranking on the scores. Looking at the weeks ahead, it looks to be clear sailing as well, so we can close out the year strong. Hopefully you can say the same for your teams! Whether you’re doing your own things with a playoff system, or riding it out until week 17 on total points, there’s still plenty of bad quarterbacking to be had.
John was unable to get to the game log last week, but it may be just as well that he didn’t. Scores were relatively tame last week, and the most noteworthy thing that I can remember is Big Ben throwing an inter...

Bless Us BQBL, and These, Thy Gifts
Greetings BQBLers! The season of giving thanks is upon us, and we at BadQBing.com would like to thank you all for being a part of the Bad Quarterback League. Without all of you, we would sound that much more insane explaining this league to countless family, friends, and co-workers. We would also like to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving, unless of course you celebrated "real Thanksgiving" a month ago. Or if you're not into the whole Turkey Kumbaya mish-mash and are gearing up for over-the-top consumerism. Regardless, in the BQBL, there is plenty to be thankful about! And no, one of those things isn't me missing another Tampa Bay benching. We're not talking about that!
Kansas City Owners Thankful ...

The Bad Man is Gone
John here. Nathan Peterman has been cut. BQBL'ers you heard that right. Buffalo owners weep. The rest of your league rejoices. Lest we shed to many alligator tears for Buffalo they still have Josh Allen whenever he gets back. In this weekly installment of the Bills soap opera apparently Matt Barkley has been re-cast into this drama (comedy?). And somehow he was actually not the world's worst QB. Go figure.
Matt sent an e-mail to our league that he was considering a highlight (lowlight?) reel cut to this classic. God speed Matt. Be the change you want to see in the world. We may revisit Buffalo later in the writeup. For now, let's pour one out for our fallen BQBL god - a star that shone too bright. TO said it best.

Greetings BQBLers! Fate was so kind last week as to keep me away from most BQBL operations for the early part of the week. As the week progressed, I was unable to devote the time necessary to write a proper game log. However, there were a few quick hits I wanted to drop in here before John unloads his Week 10 Ode to Peterman.
- Week 9 was the most decisive week in the NFL as far as scoring is concerned. There were NO games that went into overtime and there were NO Game Winning Drives. For as close as things have been, it was only a matter of time before an adjustment week hit.
- The original scores did not include a fumble for AJ McCarron as scores were done manually instead of pulling stats from the interwebs. The scor...

"Hello Boys, I'm Baaaack"
John here with your Week 8 BQBL Game Log. Let's get right into it.
All you BQBL owners who thought you might have time to catch your breath and put some distance between you and those psycho killer Buffalo Bills I have some bad news to share. Nathan. Peterman. Is. Back. Yeah. Kaboom. Your championship hopes may have just gone up in smoke. One of the later pieces of news to cross the wire this week was Derek Anderson was concussed and Nathan Peterman is expected to start again in week 9. I hope you followed my advice from a few weeks ago and voted out those Bills owners. More on them in a bit. Into the games we go.

Make New Friends But Keep The Old
Greetings fellow BQBLers! It’s hard to believe that we’re just about midway through the season! For those of you that run some sort of playoff format, you may even be past the halfway point. There’s plenty to discuss about how we’ve gotten here, and we’ll touch on some of our top teams to date, but it’s also been awhile since we’ve heard from some of our favorites and BQBL legends.
We’ve hit a lot of teams in our weekly game logs so far, but there are a few teams we used to hear about all the time that we haven’t touched on yet. It just so happens, some of these favorites happened to have particularly noteworthy weeks. And as the title suggests, we’ve had a lot of fun with some new BQBL friends, but why n...

When The Rich Get Richer
John here. OK. This has gone too far. Everyone it's time to vote your Buffalo owners out of the league. It's not fair. If this writeup does nothing else, hopefully it jinxes the Buffalo misfortunes. Let's not waste any time and jump right into the scores.
The season started with Nathan Peterman and I remarked to myself, "they can't possibly get any worse than this". My god, was I wrong. Then, miraculously Josh Allen emerged from the pile of ashes and was somehow just as bad if not worse. This week they set a new standard. For the first time in at least 2 years we have a confirmed occurrence of a GEFU.
Josh Allen began the game in typical Allen fashion. Terribly. Avert your eyes if that's too much f...

I've Been Watching More Baseball Than Football
Greetings fellow BQBLers! It’s good to be back for the Week 5 Gamelog. I’ve noticed John has been having some fun at my expense, and just as he predicted, I get to dish it right back this week. Also, I’d like to echo John’s thanks, as the BQBL offices have been a little busy as of late. Managing our league (with its own scoring rules) and providing for Fantasizr can be demanding, but when it comes down to it, it’s a labor of love.
Let’s jump right into some of the exciting action from Week 5!
After a solid start to the season for Tannehill leading the Dolphins to three victories, a sure-handed loss was doled out by New England last week, giving Tannehill his first big BQBL sc...

The Return of The King
John here. Welcome to your BQBL Week 4 Game Log. Our apologies for missing the week 3 write up. As you can see things are very busy in the office. Look at this office cam footage of Matt working on the scores last week.
Week 4 was abound with dramatic happenings and dramatic scores all over. Yet again this week, 3 games went to overtime and several of those flirting with another tie. Earl Thomas broke his leg and shared his frustration with his team. Mitch Trubisky threw 6 touchdowns. Somehow, that's not a typo. Pickspatrick returned. Josh Allen went the BQBL equivalent of Super Saiyan 2. (NERD ALERT INCOMING - It took me longer than I expected to find a proper Super Saiyan 2 gif. They were all Super Saiyan 1, 3, ul...

The Fork in the Road
Week 2 of the BQBL is in the books. It's John here with your weekly recap and I'm glad to be back. It was a minefield out there this week. Those red hot scores from week 1 disappeared. On a quick side note, raise your hand if you are already disappointed with your teams by week 2. I'm guilty of an even greater sin than picking good quarterbacking teams for our BQBL. I'm starting the wrong teams every week and missing out on big time points.
However, our league has a transgressor guilty of one of the worst sins. His name rhymes with Pat (you may know him). Every league has a *Pat (I mean you Matt). An owner that can't get out of their own way. One of our favorite memories was when Matt joined us for his first year in o...

And We're Back!
Greetings BQBLers! It's great to be joining you once again with another season of Bad Quarterbacking. John and I look forward to the weeks ahead, and week 1 already has more than we could possibly get to in one gamelog.
As we retweeted, week 1 saw the most picks in an opening week since 2003 with 39! In fact, this total was higher than any week last season. We also saw six defensive touchdowns off of QB's, falling just short of last year's opening week which saw seven!
On a quick side note, we just wanted to thank you for your patience this first week. Things change, code needs to be debugged, and Green Bay fans (yours truly) need to recover from nearly losing an entire season of the GOAT. But enough about good quarterbac...
