I did a position switch DB -> QB and got a 2/3 tech/GI Qb and compared him to a regular QB (43/49).  There was no appreciable difference over ten games using each QB against the same opponent (D3 vs D3, default plans).

See Below: (STR/GI/TECH)

  Comp% YPA
  Regular (48/43/49) Terrible (43/2/3) Regular (48/43/49) Terrible (43/2/3)

Good.  This is stuff I like to see to tell me where some balancing tweaks need to be made.  I'll have to look at where GI and TECH are used in passing and make sure there is enough differentiation between the rating levels.  I would expect the converted QB to not be totally useless, but should definitely be noticeably worse than the "normal" QB.  Do you happen to have data on the INTs and passes defensed as well?  Should see more INTs with the converted QB and even more sacks which GI will contribute to.

At first I was just looking at the basic performance indicators, but after the weekend I'll start digging deeper.  It is nice to get our hands on it.

I did a test of INT's as you suggested.  Over a 30 game sample the results were:

Regular (48/43/49):  59 total INT's, 1.97/game

Terrible (43/2/3): 68 total INT's, 2.27/game

I'd say the difference is probably not large enough given the ratings spread, especially since you'll never see a 40+ point difference in the two main core ratings in any division.
