Jackson and Thomas have a good chance to show up on the team after next week.

Bravo to Dee for rallying like a champion. He was on the ropes taking a vicious pounding before last week. Looked like a completely different player against Puke.

That reads like a "everybody gets a trophy" list.
So Akers makes it this week, but Walton doesn't when he goes over 200yds??

Think it was coaching honestly he didn't get his hands on a soul first 2 games this last game I seen him jamming which is his game being physical on the line.

How the hell do they come up with the ratings?


It's not just the stats that count. You get a grade on every play so that would include run and pass blocking, also how well you run the routes even when you don't catch the ball

McDermott whiffing on the DE on the Berrios TD pass should automatically eliminate him from any recognition

Pretty sure they grade every play, and you either get a 1 or a 0. there is no "4" for a great play or a -7 for a really crappy play. That is why it's not just "player of the week" with the best stats. It's more consistency thing. That's how a lot of coaches grade players too. Not arguing for its merits, just passing along the info.

Hopefully his confidence builds each week and starts to let it fly

The talent is there

They grade the plays on a scale of -2 to +2. A -2 is a truly despicable play and vice versa for +2. What they do is good work. It's also subject to change, as it is performed by unpaid interns the first go through and then reviewed by analysts for accuracy. Then they scale the grades onto a scale of 100. Otherwise it would look like a part-time player who balled out for 15 plays had a similar grade to a starter who was terrible and got like a 30 grade.

I'm 3/4 of the way through the game and I'd say they're being pretty kind to Delaney. McDermott had one really bad whiff, which was probably a -2, but he played well. The OL who really struggled were Navaughn Donaldson and Trevor Darling. Donaldson was higher up and lower down than Darling. Darling's good is average and Donaldson's good is elite, though.
