Exclamation Pro Football Focus Scores for Saints Players in 2011 (Offense)

If you like my weekly in season grading then you'll love Pro Football Focus. Unfortunately you have to pay $30 a year to get access to their goodies. That's where I come in to hook you up. For those of you that aren't familiar, they grade every single player on every single play to give you an evaluation of each player and where they stack up. I generally share with you the final grades of the season to let you know where PFF felt the Saints players stacked up against the rest of the league.

Her used the word surprised way too many times. I wasn't surprised on any of the offensive players rankings. I didn't think our tackles were that good though. Huh!

T: PFF agreed with my grades, which had Zach Strief rated much higher than Jermon Bushrod. Like me, they agreed that Bushrod's Pro Bowl trip was perhaps not justified. Strief finished with a 12.0 rating, good for 8th overall, with balanced scores across the board in each assignment. Bushrod wasn't far behind, though, rated 15th overall amongst NFL tackles with a 8.3 rating. Either way I think it's safe to say the Saints have very underrated edge blockers.
Debatable. We often chipped DE's with TE's, RB's and WR's to slow down their rush. That combined with Brees having eyes in the back of his head and his quick step drops and his quick dump offs made the OT's look better than they perhaps are.

They certainly aren't a weakness, but they aren't great either.

They did OK, but I wouldn't say they are underrated.
