When the rest of the O-line is that terrible... why focus on Mathis if you're a DT? You can bypass the only serviceable one in Mathis and attack any of the other linemen.

PFF's overall grading system is generally (and rightfully so) considered pretty awful. However their stats, while not necessarily spot on accurate, can provide some relevant insight.

Mathis is a good lineman who works best in a ZBS. I don't know that I agree with him being the best in the NFL, though. In a sort of interesting twist, his flaws may have been masked by how bad the rest of the line has been most of the year.

What about Jake Scott, has he been a revelation?
