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.

    • This rookie class really seems like a group of hungry football players, not just athletes.  Guys like CMC, Samuel, Moton etc.. all seem like they are gym rats with a passion for the game.  Pair them up with this stellar locker room and film rats like Luke and this could be Gettlemans best draft ever.  Give me guys with football intelligence and passion for the game over egotistical  athletic freaks all day. 
    • So you are saying we should ignore all the wrongs of history and the wrongs of present day?  Our country isn't ignoring race.  What you're saying isn't rooted in what the reality is, because when we do look at race, we see how ugly this country is.  Once things are set right, once injustice has been redressed, then I'll be satisfied.  How many times have black people had to start over in this country?  I'm tired of ignoring race, only to have my stuff burned down again and starting over.
    • So you choose to look at people based on race instead of them as an individual person. When you put it that way, you'll never be satisfied. Grouping people into race categories that have nothing to do with a person's character, personality, or any of the sort will always show a variation in data across all groups under that category. It's virtually impossible to make race groups all the same due to the fact it has nothing to do with any one of those people's characteristics, which are random and probability showing it's impossible for everything to be equal.
