It's actually pretty spot on... a pretty good introduction of the team to anyone on the outside who wants a little more info.

And he's right... we're an 8-8 team now... but if Locker develops how we hope he has (and how he's shown the last 2 preseason weeks), the team has the talent to make a decent playoff run (I don't know if the D will allow for a Super Bowl contender as they claim).... but it could get interesting if it finally clicks for Locker.

The seem most impressed with the DT group... which I find very interesting, since I was heavily on board the Star bandwagon pre draft.

Yea the rotation is solid but there's no STAR. Hopefully Casey develops into one but the other guys are just good rotation guys. Still not sure why they have Morgan at 9 sacks for last season.

As someone who has frequently bashed PFF in the past, I have to say that was probably the most accurate preview I have read from a national outlet. Pretty impressed actually.

I mean they know their football...it's just their ranking systems/formulas that always seem to be off. Like on our DT's for example. Laughing

Did not know that about Jake an pressure. Maybe with the revamped O-Line he can be a solid to good QB. He was running for his life once the O-Line started to fall apart last season.

They're not exactly lying about anything they state. They've never lied about the fact that they love Casey. He's shown that he could make a push to be amongst the best DT's in the league. They also really like Martin, but do explain that he, Hill, and Klug have all been rotational guys.. but all at least above average in their PT.

We may not have the star yet... but at least we have a foursome that is solid throughout, and that is going to remain above average even when our big guy has to take a breather.

TF4L... yeah. The word has always been that Jake is so much better on the move. I figured that included when he was pressured to move outside the pocket too... not just on designed roll outs.

But its also encouraging. I agree wholeheartedly that the younger/rawer a QB is, the more pressure will affect him. It looks like he should get better protection this year which should help avoid that situation... but he also has an extra year under his belt. He's still inexperienced, but not as much as he was a year ago.

People also tend to forget he was on a pretty good pace, statistically, before he went down in the Houston game last year. He just couldn't regain that early momentum when he came back last season.

I'm not saying they hide it. Just that guys like our backups end up with better grades than other starters in the league who they are not better than which at times make their ranking look ridiculous.

True, but it's a lot easier to have better stats with a smaller sample size. Which is the case with most back up players.

For the most part I enjoy their stat system. I agreed with/knew about nearly everything they had said up unitl they posted Ayers and Browns missed tackle percentage and honestly it all makes sense. They have great play-making ability but miss a lot of easier plays. Every stat that I read in their article went hand in hand with the problems on our defense. The poor tackling, terrible play at safety.. it all adds up.

If Ayers and Brown become sure tacklers, the offensive line does what we think it should do, and Jake Locker plays above average we should be a good team.
