If one person was evaluating every player, the ranking system would have some merit but it would be a full time job just to do NFC or AFC teams, let alone the entire NFL if you wanted to do it correctly. It takes me several hours to look at the Cowboys each week.
Do I think PFF's ratings could be more relevent when it comes to offensive linemen?
But once you finish with it, their ratings pretty much parallel what most are seeing and saying meaning that Livings has performed better than any of the other offensive linemen to date and the tackles have not played well.
From that aspect their ratings do seem to have merit.
If their ratings suggested Smith and Free were having decent seasons and that Livings was playing badly...
Well then I'd be right there with many others saying that their ratings are not valid.
