Don't make no sense to grade any of this until the end of time & after the final judgement (if there is such a thing).

Forget everything that happened before today, it don't matter. Incomplete information.
Why don't we give a Super Bowl trophy to the team that has the best off-season? If you actually look at pre-season predictions by *experts*, most of them are wildly wrong. One year, Peter King had the worst preseason predictions of media members who made predictions.

Make your predictions. Just don't pretend they mean anything. Why they play the games.

And for those who have track records, actually playing NFL football like Andre Johnson, your assessment may likely be more rational than judging guys who play in different systems on a lower level and not with the fit they will have in their new teams.

And as for people who say that Kubiak is the worst coach in the NFL, typically that doesn't happen to guys who win 12 regular season games. Or gets into the playoffs with a backup, backup low round pick rookie quarterback.

You can make your assessments based on facts. But putting letter grades on things is sort of juvenile, no? It is done because readers like affirmation or anger about grades, and editors give readers what they want.
