  1. Yes, the system is a basic play by play grading, nothing is contextualized. So in short, it is a non-DVOA method. For the most part, it is simple to evaluate players. It becomes difficult in certain areas. Safety is a position that is difficult to grade esp in a zone scheme. D-lineman dropping into zone coverage and certain linebacker coverages also can be problematic to simple grading systems. We feel it is however the best way to give an overall evaluation of players. We have discussed ways to take game situations into account, but have not agreed upon a way to do this. I do agree this is a flaw in our system. For example in our system, with the score being Atlanta 35 - Rams 3, a 27 yard Rams completion would be scored the same as it would as if it were the first play of the game. Maybe we were harsh on Beasley, I'd have to check. Thank you for your insight and comment and please continue to check in on the site
  2. OK, here is the link. Smiler you can read about the grading procedures on the site. Basically, it takes into account each play, how the player performs and how its compares to the optimal outcomes. Im looking for input thought, so if you take a look please provide some criticism. www.playergrades.com Mods, if this is considered advertising, please feel free to remove. Though note, this is a fan site free of charge and ads. Thanks
  3. Hey Guys. Some friends and I have started a new website that will grade NFL players on a per games basis. It is still in the beta stage, but we have the playoff games for the 2016 season up. Being a lifelong Falcons fan, I wanted to get some feedback on the new website from you guys, but I don't know if I am allowed to list web address here in the forum, so if you would like to take a look pls message me and Ill send the link. Specially we want to know how people feel about the grading methods and procedures, as well as the actual grades. (spolier, Deion Jones had a great post-season, Jake Matthews-not so much) Thanks for helping
  4. Sean Baker played all but 7 defensive plays ( the most of anyone) last night and had a great game. Don't see any way he gets cut. If he does, he won't be around for the practice squad.
  5. I watched this, teared up a little bit, then went outside to work on my footwork and spacing.
  6. Overall the left side of the line struggled in the run game, but the entire starting line graded positive in pass plays with Lamar Holmes and Jake Matthews tying for the highest pass block grades with a +1.4. Run blocking on the left was graded poorly with both Matthews and Blalock grading in the red at (-2.8 and -3.3 respectively) Other scores of note include: Top five Offensive scores 1) Julio Jone +1.5 2) Devin Hester +1.1 3) Bear Pascoe +1.1 4) Matt Ryan +1.0 5) Jon Asamoah +.9 Bottom 3 1) Levine Toilolo -2.9 2) Roddy White -2.6 3) Justin Blalock -2.4 Top 5 Defensive 1) Dwight Lowery +1.8 2) Stansly Maponga +1.5 3) Paul Soliai +1.4 4) Paul Worrilow +1.4 5) Pat Angerer +1.3 Bottom 3 Defensive 1) Rashede Hageman -3.8 2) Desmond Trufant -1.9 3) Jacques Smith -1.9
  7. It seemed as though Lamar Holmes had a solid game last night, but I wanted to check the PFF scores before commenting. Lamar graded out as +1.4, labeled as a good(green) game. Jake earned a +1.9. Excellent for a rookie tackle. Ryan Schraeder earned a -1.3 grade, which equals a poor(red) game. Also, if your interested in why it was so ugly in the end, T.J. Yates scored a -6.0. This is impressive in that he achieved this in only 23 snaps. Other standouts include: Joe Hawley +3.8 Devonta Freeman +1.5 Malliciah Goodman +2.8 Travian Robertson +2.1 Jaques Smith +2.1 Kemal Ishmael +2.3 Negative games of note Desmond Trufant -1.4 Robert Alford -1.4 Tyson Jackson -2.3 Levine Toilolo -2.3 Also, amazing both our offense and defense scored better than Houston's, emphasizing the importance of solid quarterback play.
  8. Seems like he had great push on most plays, though he seemed more intent on pushing his guy back than making a play on the ball.
  9. Head on over to the Ross Tucker Podcast (A superb football podcast) to listen to an interview during the Rookie conference with Jake Matthews. http://podcastone.com/Ross-Tucker-Football-Podcast

  12. “We have agreed to a deal,” said Joe Panos, Asamoah’s agent. “Jon took less to go to Atlanta, flat out. The reasons are because number one, he knows they are going to win. The stability of the organization and the guy he’s blocking for, Matt Ryan and the coaching staff and Mike Tice. “Those are the big reasons why he left money on the table to play in Atlanta. I think it says a lot about his character and what kid of man that he is.” Source---AJC http://atlantafalcon...l-with-falcons/
  13. Seems like management has a good plan for the D-Line. Soliai and Babs in the middle with Babs rotating to the outside along with Peters. According to PFF, Jackson is a solid 3-4 DE and Goodman has the build and run defense of a 3-4 end. I like what we have done today.
