    I see some of these grades have more to do with name recognition than the players actual play, smh.

    Just remember that pff 'grades' are not an objective measure. Some guy watches a game for a player. For any play they will assign a grade ranging from -3 to 3 and add them up. Voila you have a grade.

    Personally I think it's crap. I would rather watch the game and form my own opinion.

    Likely explains rotation of Nevis, Rayford, etc and churning of roster, adding Austin. Hayden just isn't cutting it and a friend of mine whose is a Panthers fan saw him starting for Dallas DL and said good luck with him lol. Also said same about Bernadeau last year...

    Yeah, he gave up 4 hurries which is not that bad esp with no hits or sacks but he had 3 penalties, too. Negative day dropped him from top of the list.

    I don't think Smith is our best lineman. Free is right now and it's not even close. He's not getting that much help as far as I can tell. He hasn't needed it.

    Agree in regards to Ware, but then how do you explain Free? Free has little to no name recognition and, if anything, tends to be associated with his horrible play in the past couple years.

    Also, Free would definitely be ranked in the top 3 if not for this past game where he reverted back to some of his old habits (i.e. a bazillion false starts).

    Hayden may be playing too many snaps,they need to sub him on passing downs.

    @Risen Star will love that.

    Cowboys are looking at an A+ draft if they double down on the oline and draft Warford instead of the awkward stiff Escobar.

    Yeah. He has really played better lately though. He's had two neutral games, three bad, and two meh games.

    That's a great point. A really that applies to the entire defense, 3 lousy games that several of the defenders need to overcome.

    How are your rankings compiled? You are throwing a lot of absolutes out there ("no way....").

    I dont. There is a reason a lot of these guys were unemployed during the off season.

    I don't think that's exactly how it works but like any other stat, it's not gospel and context always matters.

    I take it as another piece of info to add to the pile, not the final word.

    PFF is not the be all end all that's for sure. I've always taken their stats with a grain of salt esp some of the specific stats like hurries, sacks, etc. As long as you don't take them as gospel and look at the trends and apply the eyeball test to their results you can get a decent idea of what's going on.

    How can you possibly blame either of the three losses on Claiborne?
