They can offer insights on things basic statistics cannot. Splitting statistics into categories such as QB passing under pressure or on-target drops. The opposite is true if you take their player grades at face value. That’s what ESPN did this week with some ridiculous and ultimately useless results. In a piece this week on ESPN.com, they set about ranking all 32 teams’ rosters.Essentially, they plugged numbers into a computer with no actual thought involved. What it led to is most certainly an inaccurate view of the talent levels of players across the league.Friday we noted that this approach yielded the result of the Raiders roster being ranked 28th in the league. I can’t entirely argue with the ranking on its face, but where it gets highly questionable is looking at the grades of individual players.First and foremost Bo Jackson Jersey , they don’t grade a single player on the Raiders roster as anything better than ‘Average.’ Players with grades of 90 or better are deemed ‘Elite’ and 80 to 89.9 are ‘Good/High quality’. No Raiders were graded at those levels.So, that means 7-time Pro Bowler and 4-time All Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown is ‘Average’. Two-time Pro Bowl center Rodney Hudson is ‘Average’. Pro Football Focus roster grade chartIn whose universe are two of clearly the top players at their position in the league ‘Average’?In ‘We entered the numbers into our computer and it gave us a number and we are too lazy to care if it’s inaccurate’ universe.Another serious flaw in the PFF grades which ESPN doesn’t take into account is that they make no delineation from sample sizes. For instance, Darren Waller, who was active just four games last season, is given the same ‘Average’ status as the likes of AB https://www.raiderslockerroom.com/authentic-antonio-brown-jersey , Hudson, and Lamarcus Joyner. While a proven guard like Gabe Jackson is actually deemed as below average.This is a reminder that you can’t eliminate the human element from these things. Or you end up looking like a fool. Follow @LeviDamien The drama surrounding Antonio Brown does not appear to have an end.Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Brown and General Manager Mike Mayock “got into it” at practice on Wednesday and the team is planning to suspend Brown as a result.Brown posted to social media a letter from the G.M. informing him that he’d be fined for missing a practice and a walkthrough last month. That came after a summer that saw Brown off the field as he dealt with frostbitten feet and an ultimately futile bid to continue wearing a helmet that the NFL would not allow him to wear.During that process, Mayock said that Brown had to decide if he was all in with the team or not. It seemed for a time that the Raiders got the answer they wanted and Mayock recently told NBCSportsBayArea’s Raiders Insider podcast that “it’s been great since then” with Brown.”Per Schefter, posting the letter changed that and touched off another chapter in a long-running saga.
