    Only 39% of the passes his way have been caught so far.

    He has maybe been the best CB in the league so far this year.

    How has Mo given 3 TDs? Smith/Hester is all I remember.

    I love how he's only been targeted 4 times a game. Amazing.

    Yep. Judging a cornerback ONLY on the plays when he's targeted is an extremely flawed way to judge his performance. If you're in coverage for 40 passes and get targeted twice, allowing two completions for 18 yards, you played an outstanding game -- but those who judge by per-pass "metrics" or passer rating would claim that you stunk.

    Claiborne hasn't been great (yet), but he has played almost every snap and has allowed 2.8 catches and 33.3 yards per game (going by PFF's numbers, which might not be accurate).

    By the way, in the comments below the article, the author does credit Claiborne with doing well in "yards per coverage snap," which is a much better way of measuring performance. It's too bad the article wasn't based on that.

    Cromartie stats look good.

    Surprising to see a rookie CB, Casey Hayward, #1 on whole CB ranking list with a opposing QB rating of 23.7 -- mainly based on 0 TDs allowed and 4 Interceptions.

    Could be ProFootballFocus.com

    They're a decent site in that they provide numbers I haven't seen elsewhere.

    But that's about it.

    How they track numbers is kind of a "best guess" method.

    And they use formulas that are pretty awful to come up with a ranking for "signature stats" such as "Pass Rushing Productivity"

    I like the site because they have numbers you don't find elsewhere and because as flawed as they might be, they tally the same for all players so any sort of flaw they do have in tracking numbers is gonna equal out over the course of the season.

    Keep in mind you have to pay for the premium stats.

    Pro Football Focus. Lots of stats and game analysis and stuff. Some people really love them (Hi Clarence Hill), some don't. I love reading their analysis but don't swear by them. Take with a grain of salt, but it is one way to view things, not that it is the end all or be all. That doesn't exist I don't think.

    Yeah, that is why I couldn't produce their numbers for Carr the other day...I only access their free stuff :)
