This isn't normal statistics though. I don't see how Olsen's pass catching impact could have been offset by his run blocking. I'm not doubting he wasn't good at blocking, I just doubt that his performance was equally as bad as his receiving was good.
It's been three damn games why is offseason being brought up? Funchess' development could change a lot of our offensive problems. I really like how Cam is playing so I think we will see improvement within the season.
You're right that no stat by itself is full proof but it's funny you should say stats are just numbers because PFF watches and grades every player individually. For instance, Cam won't be penalized for dropped passes, so it's as close to game film stats as possible right now.
Ealy didn't record a stat in week 1, didn't do much week 2 and added penalties. Penalties are the fastest way to a bad PFF grade. Looks like he's going against a pretty good LT so we need him to step up. Look at Norwell with the highest grade on the offensive side. Pretty awesome seeing six players on defense with a 80+ grade. We could be seeing the changing of the guard on the DL as Short becomes the best graded player there.
It's this fanbase's favorite guy to talk about getting for some reason. My guess is they're looking to fill the void of Stephen Hill/David Gettis/Drew Carter He won't start for Vikings but he is always a threat returning.
Ellington has been hurt and was hoping to guarantee a spot based on the KR/PR duties he fulfilled but that Rugby player Hayne has been tearing it up. Interesting player but with such limited tape on him I don't think they pick him up. Gettleman will stick with known commodities at this point.
Great show as always A foot injury to a 310lb man is being so overlooked. I'm not convinced in Tolbert's value as a runner, but it isn't because of Lee Ward. He is not converting short yardage. The preseason was just Deja Vu from last year not scoring. If you asked people to say how many TDs Mike scored LY, few would've guessed zero. Fans are questioning this because we are so terrible in the redzone and converting 3rd downs I don't want to waste carries. I don't care if he stays, just stop giving him the ball like it's 2013 when he's trending 2014. I think defenses have figured out if you just make a pileup in front of him he can't get through. Don't fight him straight up, just get to his feet.
