Kuechly not a Probowler according to PFF

The big controversy. Have we forgot about Luke Kuechly? Not so and while the world likes to pin the success of a unit on one player, the truth is the Panthers’ defense is more about the collective than any one individual. So while Kuechly has played well, we’re not going to let the hype do the 49ers duo, the excellent Johnson and the criminally underrated Dansby out of a spot. Kuechly, Kiko Alonso, Sean Lee and Stephen Tulloch were all considered for the final spot, but the playmaking of Dansby (he leads his position with eight sacks and 10 pass break ups) made our minds up for us.

Sometimes these guys go full retard. Direct any questions to @PFF_Sam

Football is the ultimate team sport and he's right to a degree, but how is that different than any other player? Also, look at the turnaround that happened the game Luke moved to the middle. To try to dismiss any direct correlation between those two is impossible. Luke is as deserving as anyone in the league.

 

If you want to take issue with something take on the OLB in 43 vs 34 because TD and Lavonte David not going is a catastrophe.

Please stop using PFF. The secret to their success is charging for their garbage. People think they must be smart if you have to pay!! Nope, no different from a Huddler's opinion or Walter Football.

Good comment from the article itself:

 

PFF does not take into account a players assignment, the difficulty of the task, the difficulty of the opposition. So some average Guard who plays against Casey, Watt, Wilfork, Wilkerson, Atkins and Campbell over a 6 week stretch ends up looking like the worst player in the league vs. the Guard who played against a bunch of nobodies over the same span of time.
They try to make their analysis as objective as possible but they are also not privy to the defensive and offensive playcalls so they are not always positive of what the assignment of a player was on any given play. This impacts the secondary grades quite a bit, especially the safeties.
They also do not use any discretion when a penalty is called against a player.....so if a lineman gets called for holding and it is a really bad call, it doesn't matter as PFF dings him anyway.
There are other shortcomings as well.

Luke got the player/coach vote over Willis by a good margin, and he'll likely get an All-Pro spot.

I could care less about PFF's favoritism.
