I don't have PFF access but I read elsewhere that the worst rated starting CB in the entire NFL is... Keenan Lewis?

That can't be true, can it?
Hold my hat.. be back in 5mins

Re: Saints Not Ignoring 7-8 Record Over 15 Games

Ok, I am back...

With a list of 1-94th that play over 25% of their teams defensive snaps
Lewis is 89th (overall grade). If you sort by coverage grade Lewis is 95th...

But this is one of those areas where weighting doesn't make sense to me.

Same list sorted by Overall Grade
Rob Alfred Atl (3 games) - ranked 3rd, thrown at 10 / caught 5 (50%), TDs allowed 3, passes defended 4, YAC 67, QB rating throwing into his area 125.8

Keenan Lewis NO (2 games) - ranked 89th thrown at 15 / caught 10 (66.7%), TDs allowed 1, passes defended 1, YAC 69, QB rating throwing into his area 108

Looks like defending a pass trumps TDs allowed. So much in fact that Rob Alfred is #3 in rating but #1 in the most TDs allowed, and #4 in passes defended. One would think...

Then you have Jason Varette for SD - ranked 6th thrown at 11 / caught 7(63.6%), TDs allowed 0, passes defended 1, YAC 11, QB rating throwing into his area 109.7


All of that said, no matter how you sort Robinson you better have fresh batteries in your mouse if you plan on scrolling to find his name.


I took a closer look at all of the sorts and YAC is 4th worst in the league.. While his negatives are not horrible except for YAC he doesnt have any high points in areas that matter to lift him out of the basement. 3-4 defended passes and he is out of the cellar.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Our defense gave up 28 points per game in those 8 games.

It just sounds so ridiculous to place blame on the offense.

I do blame the offense for making me watch the defense so much.

What makes P Rob look worse than he plays is P Rob.

That's funny right there.

Less of a ToP joke for me and more of an 'if we have the ball at least no one else is scoring.'
