|6-1, 200||Born: 3-15-1977||College: Louisiana Tech||Drafted: Round 7, pick|
2007 Week 6 vs CAR (12 / 24 / 159 / 0 / 3 pass, 2 / 5 / 0 rush)
Rattay showed his rustiness when he was forced into action after signing with the Cardinals on Tuesday. With a limited playbook Rattay was intercepted three times and fumbled twice. He finished the night with 159 yards on 12 completions, and 24 attempts. He was sacked twice. Rattay targeted eight receivers, but many of his passes were off target. He did managed to lead the Cardinals on one 12 play, 80 yard drive that was capped off with a 23 yard Edgerrin James run. On that drive, Rattay completed four passes for 28 yards.
2007 Week 7 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Rattay came in for a single play in the game and threw a one yard touchdown pass to Leonard Pope.
2007 Week 10 vs DET (1 / 1 / 2 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Rattay came in when Warner was injured for a play. He tossed a two yard touchdown to tight end Leonard Pope.
2007 Week 12 vs SF (1 / 1 / 2 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
In the second quarter, Rattay came in for Warner on a first and goal at the 49ers one yard line. He handed off to Marcel Shipp for the one yard touchdown run.
2006 Week 14 vs ATL (9 / 13 / 83 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 0 / 0 rush)
Rattay entered the game in relief of Gradkowski and led the Buccaneers on an 83 yard drive to end the game. Unfortunately, Tampa Bay could not get across the goal line to cap off the drive. Rattay was nine of 13 throwing on the drive
2006 Week 15 vs CHI (20 / 35 / 268 / 3 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Rattay relieved Gradkowski for the second week in a row, and continued to build on his solid fourth quarter drive from last week. He finished 20 of 35 for 268 yards and three touchdowns, and was a big reason Tampa Bay was able to stage a comeback and overcome such a large deficit against the Bears. While he did throw one interception, Rattay led the Buccaneers on four scoring drives that led to touchdowns. His scoring passes came on completions to TE Alex Smith, WR Joey Galloway and WR Ike Hilliard. Rattay's experience shows on the field, and you can see how much more comfortable he is in the pocket than the youngster Gradkowski.
2006 Week 16 vs CLE (16 / 26 / 212 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Rattay completed 62 percent of his passes for an average of 8.2 yards per attempt to compile a 71.3 passer rating, building on his effort against the Bears a week ago. Rattay looked solid most of the afternoon, though threw what could have been a critical interception near the end of the first half in the red zone to a spot at the goal line where no wide receiver had run a route.
2006 Week 17 vs SEA (16 / 27 / 185 / 1 / 0 pass, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Rattay completed nearly 60 percent of his passes (16 of 27) for a modest 185 yards and one touchdown. Rattay obviously preferred veteran WR Joey Galloway as a primary target, with half of his completions and his only touchdown going to Galloway, and the two seemed to have the timing factor working in their favor. Rattay moved around well in the pocket and suffered only one sack, a blindside hit from former teammate Julian Peterson. It looks like Rattay could be a part of Tampa's 2007 quarterback lottery.
2005 Week 1 vs STL (11 / 16 / 165 / 2 / 0 pass, 2 / -2 / 0 rush)
Rattay was very efficient and effective in leading the 49ers to a victory. Although he only completed 11 passes in the game for 165 yards, Rattay did not make the same costly mistakes that haunted him last season. After a fumble on the 49ers' first possession, Rattay settled down and gained confidence as the game continued. Rattay had two touchdown passes in the game; his first was a 35 yard strike to WR Brandon Lloyd in double coverage, the second a six yard pass to WR Arnaz Battle over the middle. Rattay threw for just 63 yards in the second half as the 49ers held on for the win.
2005 Week 2 vs PHI (13 / 26 / 107 / 0 / 3 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Rattay struggled mightily in this game. An aggressive Eagles' pass rush left him scrambling, while downfield he was unable to find open receivers against the Eagles' secondary. When he did have open receivers, Rattay seemed to be badly off the mark with his passes. He finished the day with just 107 passing yards and three interceptions. Overall, it is difficult to say anything positive about Rattay's performance.
2005 Week 3 vs DAL (21 / 34 / 269 / 3 / 2 pass, 4 / 21 / 0 rush)
Tim Rattay had an outstanding first half, a mediocre third quarter and a horrible fourth quarter. His final numbers were 21 of 34 for 269 with three touchdowns and two costly interceptions. In the first half Tim looked poised and accurate finishing the half nine of 14 for 165 yards and two touchdowns. He did fumble a snap on a second and goal with 25 seconds remaining in the half, but recovered the ball and spiked it on third down leading to a Nedney field goal. Both of Rattay's interceptions came on tipped passes in the fourth quarter. The first interception was on a first and ten at the Dallas 34.
2005 Week 4 vs ARI (11 / 21 / 126 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Rattay had a game he would just as soon forget finishing 11 of 21 for 126 yards and an interception. His interception came on a miscommunication with receiver Brandon Lloyd as he threw it directly into the arms of Robert Tate on the 49ers' second possession of the second half. He was able to move the team across the 50 yard line just once. Rattay was lifted in favor of Alex Smith in the fourth quarter.
