Derrick Morgan is listed on NFL.com as having 6.5 sacks last season. When Pro Football Focus did their top 100 players(where he ranked 65th), they said he had 9 sacks. I figured it was just a typo or whatever, and paid no attention to it:

65. Derrick Morgan, DE, Tennessee Titans (Unranked)

Sometimes players get overlooked, and when you start breaking down the production and performances of Morgan, you cant help but feel hes one of those guys. The former first-round pick looks fully recovered from a torn ACL he suffered in his rookie year, and responded with a staggering 30 quarterback takedowns (nine sacks and 21 hits). Youd like to see him make more plays in the run game, but hes far from a liability there.

Best Performance: Week 9 versus Chicago, +6.0

Key Stat: His 30 quarterback hits were the fifth-most of all defensive players in the league.


However, they did an article on Jared Allen and his contract today, and had a list of their top 20 4-3 defensive ends in regards to pass rush productivity, and Derrick Morgan ranked 3rd...and they still have him listed at 9 sacks(It's the 2nd listing/ranking chart on this page):

Anyone have any idea where they're getting the extra 2.5 sacks from? Did the NFL stat recorders really miss 2.5 sacks? Or is PFF giving him 2.5 extra when they shouldn't?

He has 9 sacks in the last two seasons combined (6.5 in 2012 and 2.5 in 2011). Maybe that's where they're getting it from?

Yes, I think it's a mistake by PFF. They are the only site that thinks he had 9.

Somebody seemed to answer the question in the comments section of the article. Apparently PFF doesn't count .5 sacks, so any half sack goes down as a full sack.

Dont they chart their own stats?

Maybe they thought he shouldve been credited with more?

He did have a high number of pressures.

Make or break year for Morgan.
