I'm not trying to be a ****, but I hate it when people bring up the PFF "grades".

They are so useless. PFF does a lot of cool things with advanced stats and things like that. But they don't know play calls and responsibilities. Often a o-line is expecting help or someone else has the responsibility and the wrong guy gets penalized. It happens on both sides of the ball, and they are fun for fans they shouldn't be taken as gospel.

But fug it, they are fun so why should I care. Just weird pet peave of mine

I figured this would be brought up, that's why I said to take it with a grain of salt. Also, PFF is always scoffed at when they give bad scores, but lauded when they give players good scores.

The point wasn't his grade, it was his grade in relation to every other Tackle that was graded on the same scale (almost dead last)

I think Bell might turn out ok on the left, but for everyone saying people are just talking out of their ass about Byron, take this into consideration:

Byron graded a -9 overall according to PFF this preseason. That is 136th out of 141 tackles that took a snap this preaseason. Only one player (Cyrus Kouandjio) had a worse grade and made a 53 man roster.

Of course those grades have to be taken with a grain of salt, he played mostly against 1s where others where playing against backups, but it's still something to chew on.

Not EPL, but USMNT related

Julian Green went to Hamburger SV on a season-long loan


Holtby also there on loan with possibility of full transfer. I guess I have a new favorite German squad

I had to work this AM and just watched the LFC-THFC match. I felt like we were in control for a lot of the game but just gave up dumb big plays and didn't even come close to finishing on long possessions. Kabul was garbage and gave up so many chances. That penalty was bullshit, but I can't claim 3-0 was a fluke after Sterling put Vert and Kabul in a fuging clown suit (then gifted Lloris the ball). That is kid is gonna be special
