    • 5 games out of 11 with less than 50 yards rushing;
    • only 866 yds rushing for the season (dead last in the league);
    • an avg of only 3.5 yards/att (again, dead last in the league).
    Anyone who claims, as PFF does, that we have a top 10 run blocking unit is out of their minds.

    No because there number one back has been hurt virtually all year-you know the guy with a 4.4 ypc avg? The second back has two bad knees and the backups are UDFA's.

    Did the Vikings run as well without AP???

    It's funny how you point out one example and make a generalization on the entire site. That one example by the way, with Eli and your boy Romo was based on accuracy. Remember that Eli had about a half dozen passes dropped that game, it's not like they pulled these numers out their backsides. Oddly enough you seem to be comfortable with the OT ratings, how many would you argue with? I know Free isn't one of them.

    Burms HAS NEVER been able to reconcile the fact that PFF's ratings for the most part support his views.

    He continually berates them even though they usually parallel his opinions.

    Secondly he disregarded PFF's passer ratings from the first Cowboy/Giant game which showed Romo to be the better passer in that contest.

    But no... he goes back to the game rating which takes into account factors (like drops, penalties attributed to the QB and sacks attributed to the QB) that he has no feeling for.

    At the risk of sounding like Randy Galloway, "watch the games, man.".

    We aren't dead last in the league in rushing yards and avg because the backs aren't getting to the holes being opened up by the OL. It's because more often than not the OL simply doesn't open any holes in the first place.

    and over rates penalties and has other faults Theogt outlined. But they don't support your agenda.

    I have said PFF is garbage and never use them. Show when I did or shut up.

    actually they pull a lot out of their rear end. Half to laugh at you for claiming that it was all someone elses fault for Eli

    Not surprising coming from you

    and you still want it all handed to you.

    Not surprised at all

    Too lazy to do some of your OWN research? Not my problem.

    This is too funny. You obviously have no clue about PFF, and only regurgutate what you've read from others. I have yet to read a single original thought from you on the topic in this thread.

    But I guess ignorance is bliss, so more power to you.
