This has real value. 

It might not grade "your" player well, but on average, it's a set of skilled eyes grading things like blocking in a way no one here can.  It doesn't mean, in 20 plays, for instance that a career is over.  Game 1 of preseason isn't the end-all, be-all determinant (I saw a "cut Ealy" in the other thread and an all but "it's OK that Lee Ward had a -1" - turns out falling off your man in the hole isn't universally accepted) of a player's career.   Right now, positive is a nice thing to have, but a few negatives aren't catastrophic.

Trusnik makes the list but Glanton doesn't. Classic PFF.

Rivera himself said he was dissapointed and disgusted by the defense. Glanton was a big part of that in terms of snapcount and many here said he didnt look great. Why is that "LULZ"? It fits with the coaches reaction and what happened on the field.
