  • KJ's number doesn't surprise me. I remember hearing a bunch of times the announcers point out him being out of place or slow in recognition of a play. We were pretty lucky Greg Olson caught a case of the Koren Robinson's.

  • After watching second time, i thought Breno was pretty bad too. His missed block caused the sack fumble. Im not a huge linemen analyst or anything though.

    Any your point is? If he failed miserably on those plays, he would be rated 0.0 or less.

  • Sorry, can't give any kind of respect to a grading scale where Giacomini has a positive rating for that game. He got beat like a drum all friggen game long. Can't remember how many times my buddies and I were saying "Breno again, getting pushed around."

  • Coleman had a few clutch first down catches. While I really liked MRob, I must admit that I really like what we have in Coleman.

  • Nice to see D'Anthony Smith on there near the top of the Defense. We need the new guy to step up and it looks like he did, even though he barely has any time practicing with the team.

    Just saying the sample size is too small to make judgments about his ability to run block relative to Mike Rob. While he may have blocked well individually on a few plays, run game as a whole was still paltry.

    A lot of it was indeed for his fullback abilities, apparently. From their Three Performances of Note:

    Derrick Coleman (+2.4) consistently dominated in the hole on lead blocks and also threw in three receptions netting 30 yards for good measure. However, it was his work in his prime role that stood out. He was only in for seven running plays but on three of those he clearly won the battle in the hole.

    Nice. PFF's analysts tend to have pretty good evaluation of players, I think, so that's really good to hear.

  • Funny how impressions can differ so much from what you see when you take the DVR and analyze each play. My impression, bolstered by Newton's 125 yards passing, was that Thurmond did a fair job. However, now that I see his rating I recall how early game I was getting upset that Smith was getting all those catches off Thurmond. So I guess my first impression was correct, but my overall impression was that our secondary did a good job. Strange then, that our LBers and a DB get the worst ratings. Same for Bryant. I consider he and Mebane responsible for stopping the run and my impression was that neither was doing a very good job of that. Yet Bryant ends up with a great rating and Mebane comes out middle of the road.

    I agree, but I wasn't saying Coleman is the answer. I'm just saying, people were blaming our running game on him yesterday, which clearly wasn't fair to him.

  • I don't get why people are so pissed at Breno. As far as I remember, he got beat... once, maybe twice but I only remember once. I don't even remember hearing about him the entire rest of the game except when dude got frustrated and punched him in the face......

    I will rewatch the game on NFL Game Rewind, but this sounds to be like the haters are just looking for a reason to dislike Breno.

    That's just it, once or twice turns into "all game". He gave up the sack/fumble and so that sticks in everybody's mind but really he played well most of the game, best I could tell.

    Playing every down in the base defense as a WILL and in the nickel is just different. The biggest issue for KJ right now is he has to think through it, whereas he was more instinctive as a SAM. Hence, growing pains.

    It's not a negative or a knock, it's the reality. Just like there will be growing pains when Bruce Irvin gets back and plays SAM. Guys are learning new positions and new roles and it takes some time to flourish.

    Wright/Wags mostly graded poorly in run defense. They were closer to middle-of-the-road in pass coverage. I think this is somewhat to be expected vs. a read-option QB. There's a lot more hesitation/decision-making involved in defending running plays with a mobile QB. Thurmond was the only player on defense to get a really bad score in pass coverage. I initially thought he did okay, but Steve Smith was certainly having his way with someone early on in the game.

    I actually like Breno and I was very critical of his performance yesterday. It seemed like his side of the line was getting pushed back into the pocket consistently. He's a mauler in run blocking (usually) but his pass blocking was very poor yesterday.

    Just because Newton had less than 200 yards passing doesn't mean our secondary did a great job. He completed 64% of his passes. I think we would have lost had CAR not come out with an ultra vanilla game plan on offense.

    I don't know if they did a great job, but they certainly did a good job in limiting big plays, which is the philosophical hallmark of a Pete Carroll team. Carolina did an okay job of moving the ball, but they never broke Seattle's D. Cam was limited to fewest passing yards of his career in spite of his completion %. Gotta credit Seattle's secondary at least some for that, though I'm sure Carolina's play-calling didn't help.

    Yeah, for less than 8 yards a pop.
    In Wilson's worst game as a pro he completed just 9 passes for as many yards as Newton managed yesterday

    64% of his passes for 5.4 yards per pass. It's easy to complete passes when they're practically all checkdowns. Besides, completion percentage and YPA are inflated with mobile QBs like Newton and Wilson, because when there's no one open, they will scramble instead of throwing it away. Sometimes they get sacked or get tackled for a loss, but that doesn't show up in their passer stats.

  • Here is the thing that I hate about their grading and I know these situations are hard to quantify:

    Kearse gets a 0.0 for catching the game winning TD on a magnificent grab.
    Lynch gets a -3.1 for the game sealing key run to not give them the ball back.
    Thomas gets a -.3 for making causing the potentially game saving fumble.

    Tough for me to accept that those 3 plays alone do not warrant high grades purely for their key contribution to this tough win.

    I just rewatched the game for the third time. I still havent watched all-22 (its not released yet).

    From what I have seen, once again, .net over-reacts to anything Breno. Breno had a good game yesterday with a few bad plays. Plus, him and Unger seem to have to switch off giving extra support to Sweezy. Ever since the beginning of last year with Breno getting some flags thrown, this board has hated him with a passion and seem to think he is horrible. He is pretty damn good. Amazing in teh run game, and above average in pass support. His hard hitting till the whistle tenacity is what sometimes gets him trouble, but that what helps make this team good.

    But this will all be taken with a grain of salt, because like I said, .net doesnt care and wants to hate him for some reason.

    +1 for Breno. I like him, and didn't think he did as bad as everyone else. PFF backs up my opinion. Though, I am surprised he was in the positives.

    Poor poor Beast Mode.

  • Turbin had one of the biggest runs of the day on a 3rd down play to set up our only TD, yet he scores negative? What is with all the Turbin hate on this board? I'm not just talking about this one topic. I continue to hear people bringing him down on this board. Its like you all expect us to have a Jerry friggin Rice caliber player at every position. All Turbin did was average 4 1/2 yards per carry as a ROOKIE. We should be damn grateful to have such a talented RB backing up Beast Mode.

    That score is from PFF, not this board.

    And I dont hear the hate you hear. People are high on Michael, but no one has ever called Turbin a slouch.

  • I get down on Breno because i think he is our worst starting lineman. And, I don't mind the occassional whistle for playing hard (regardless of whether it is on Breno or Sweezy). It seems to me that more often than not, when RW is running for his life, it is Breno's man coming through. That may not have been the case last Sunday, because I honestly saw people coming through everywhere (I also don't believe that Breno was that much better than everyone else).

    I also blame RW for some of that pressure. (The pressure on the unreal pass and catch to Doug Baldwin was really caused by RW dropping way, way too deep. No way breno or Okung could stop their guys from sprinting past them when they did not know that RW was 20 yards behind the line of scrimmage.)

    IF you read it, its a play by play analysis. And its actually pretty smart and simple. You get a + point for doing something amazing. You get a zero grade for doing your job normally, and you get a - point for missing your assignment. Pretty simple and smart if you ask me. then they just take your number of plays and divide for the average. There is a small amount of subjectiveness, but as its been stated, if the evaluator cant tell if you played your assignment correctly, then you just get a 0 (which does nothing to effect your grade). AND lets say your lynch, and you get stuffed behind the line, but it was obvious that its because a lineman missed his block and a defender crashed down on you, you will just get a 0 and not a - point because it wasnt your fault.

    I actually like it very much, because its quite simple but accurate in measuring your average play throughout the game.

    Dude going off on him is a victory for Breno--getting into a mofo's head out there, pushing him around.

    Good post. The only thing I question is if their grades are based on the All-22 tape or the TV feed. I always assumed it was from the All-22 tape, but these grades seemed to come out before that was made available to the media (or do they have super early access?).

    Its suppose to be the All-22 because they grade every player, every play. Which would be impossible without All-22. I'm not sure if/how they get it early.

    I've read it. They have a simple point assignment convention used in conjuction with a limited collection of subjective judgements. It certainly doesn't exhaust all grading considerations or weights or styles of play. Its attraction is its simplicity.

    They also glance over other considerations ... to avoid confusion and keep their presentation simple.

    What I am attempting to convey is that PFF is not the definitive authority.

    We get, yada yada. It is simple, but a valid grading system to judge how a player played in a particular game. Not necessarily his skill compared to the rest. And honestly, its fine. Because guess what, the top dogs try and make their own rating systems that factor every aspect of everything, and it still gets scrutinized and ridiculed. And why? Because Football is very hard to quantify with Sabermetrics. The variables are so vast, and the amount of data available for each conceivable situation is so small, that it just cant be perfect. QBR and DVOA I think have great return for their numbers. Yet they are scrutinized constantly.

    So lets get off the high-and-mighty horse and appreciate someone even taking the time to systematically record every down, for every player, in a timely manner and assign a grade. I watch the All-22, and rewatch games like a champ. Ive seen sundays game 4 times now, and have watched 5 others games as well. And I can tell you that I have not studied every single player on every single play. So I appreciate when someone takes the time too.

  • I think many place far too much weight on PFF numbers as a starting point for inferences.

    However, PFF and this site exist for entertainment purposes only.

    From time to time we all lose track of that fact. LOL

    The Seahawks credited Earl Thomas with the forced fumble. He also lead both teams in tackles during the Carolina game. NFL.com numbers: 8 tackles, 2 assists, 1 force fumble.

    Don't know about how PFF arrived at that negative number for Earl. :229031_shrug: Since it comes from an entertainment site, it just might be a tiny bit suspect. LOL

    Chances are, on all those plays, he got high marks. But remember, ET plays every down, so its very reasonable to believe that he may have screwed up on plays where it didnt matter.
