Pretty good. I'd argue that he was a little easy on our safeties and Cbs.

I think Triplett is far too generous with his grades. You could make an argument for any individual player for any individual grade on his list but overall, the grades are too high for a team with a losing record and that had the worst defense in the history of the NFL. Some guys just flat out failed.

Click here for our New Orleans Saints coverage team's grades for every player's 2012 performance. We based those grades on how each player measured up against our expectations for him in his specific role.

The following report card that I produced is more of an overall view of where each player measures up today, in 2013, compared to everyone else at his position in the NFL.

Pro football focus graded Harper out as the second worst safety in the NFL.

Why did they rate Malcolm Jenkins worse?

True Utah Saint. A couple of Fs were definitely earned. Colston dropped way too many passes to grade an A. Same for Graham. Moore should have been our highest graded receiver.

Yep, those same ones caught my eye too.

Graham led the league in dropped passes and got an A?

And in general on defense...

32nd in yards allowed rushing and 31st in yards allowed passing and not one starter gets below a C-?

Reading the comments, a lot of people are saying the same things we are. Tripplet explains that this is how he grades these players as he thinks they compare going into 2013. In other they are projections not grades for 2012.

Yep. Harper is rated 167 and Jenkins 168 out of 168.

As a frame of reference, that would mean every team in the NFL has 5 safetys that played better than Harper and Jenkins.

I see that now but I still have the same thoughts in general, the grades are too high. How can a team full of guys that deserve to be starters in the NFL set records for futility? I would think, it would be obvious that to set those kind of marks, you must have SOME guys that don't deserve to be there.

Unless he's blaming everything on the defensive schemes.
