PFF posts its ratings for all teams

This is funny.  They use our nickle defensive package to put three CB's on the field, taking off Davis.  Davis should rank above average and remove Capt as below average.

Jimmy Graham isn't an elite tight end.

 

Okay, I quit. I can't even deal man.

Their criteria for "elite" seems pretty harsh...Haloti Ngata didn't get an elite grade by them and he's generally considered the best at his position.

And what's up with London Fletcher getting a "poor"? Didn't he make the Pro Bowl over Kuechly as an alternate?

Wait wait wait, one more. Earl Thomas is above average, Golden Tate and Sidney Rice are on Steve Smith's level, and Percy Harvin is elite.

Fletcher is overrated and is getting misdirected recognition these days based on the longetivity and consistency of his career, but I certainly wouldn't call him poor.  I'd probably put him at average.

 

And there are some "elite" grades that I'm scratching my head at if players like Graham and Kuechly aren't getting "elite".  Like Reggie Wayne.  Yea, he's real good, but I wouldn't call him elite these days.  I woulda made him the dark green category.

PFF's ratings are based on stats. How can you expect them to give a high grade to someone who's been injured last year? They're not gonna invent some training camp, recovering-from-injury metric just for something like this. I trust these guys -- their evaluations are certainly more justified than the regular fan's.

If it was just based on stats they wouldn't have graded Cam and Tannehill the same.

 

I do like PFF and usually value their stat systems.  This time, however, I think there is less value in what they're saying.  And I'm not even just complaining about what they said about some Panthers.  Like someone pointed out above, if Jimmy Graham isn't an elite TE who the hell is?!  A fully healthy Gronk is the only TE that's better than Graham today.  Which means Graham is the best and will probably be the best for a while to come.  And rating Dwan Edwards the same as Nakamura is a joke.  Dwan was bad in run defense, but good in pass defense.  In every aspect of the game, Nakamura was worse than Dwan's worst aspect.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
