It's helpful information, but I wouldn't use PFF as the barometer on a player's resume...

He's back and it's good and we get a couple more years of watching him woof down a Crispy Thin Catfish Poboy on the Big Screen at New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Company...
On the contrary, teams knocked; he just didn't answer. Regardless of PFF, Streif has played solidly, saide from 2012* when he had a nagging groin injury. He played his best football last year and got paid like an average RT.

Oher allowed a team-high eight sacks and 42 quarterback hurries this season, according to Pro Football Focus.

He was the last-ranked tackle in the league in run blocking last season, according to Pro Football Focus

But still thats not unheard of. QBs and OL are among the positions that can play the longest.

I'm happy we got the big guy back. He is solid and affordable. Its not always a great RT over a good RT will have bigger impact than a great TE compared to a good TE...

According to PFF.

I don't go by what PFF says.

Oher could be the most over-rated OT in the entire NFL.

Re: Saints re-sign Zach Strief

Great signing only the guy from Miami Penn was a better FA. Armstead at left and Strief at right. That's a pretty good pair. Now for a great center.

Oher is just a big name, his play doesn't equal up to the hype, never has since he got in the league.
