AT TIMES, yes!

But not as a whole package.

I'm not sure about the exact scores, but seems to me the rankings are mostly accurate (even though I'm not 100% sure).

Also, it illustrated the point I've been trying to make.
That Brisiel came in last among the five O-linemen.

I'm not sure about Winston over Pitts though.

Pretty much Chris & brisles get thrown around all two often ...... well i dont watch two closely but to me the line seems to break more often on the Brisles+Winston side the most

Many ZBS O-linemen are like that.
But they have other attributes that work well in the scheme.

I was wanting the Texans to draft the Guard Herman Johnson, that big monster from LSU, as a short-yardage/goal line O-lineman.
(They run quite a bit of the zone blocking scheme at LSU, too!)

And he also did get to play RT in the Senior Bowl as well.

My biggest gripe that Lance didn't hit on wasn't with Brisiel being lower than Duane Brown, it was with how can a 8 year vet and Oline mainstay Chester Pitts be rated only 1 point higher than a 2nd year player. Brown wasn't THAT good last season.

Pitts at 80 is a joke.

I don't know how they did it, but IMHO, our guys rank pretty close to one another.
Or at least, they aren't that far apart in performance, in a really really noticeably way.

But I think Pitts should be at the top.

Not really thread worthy, but to sidetrack, I'd be curious to hear 76Texan's take on how the zone system is used in Goal line type formations. The normal peel to the LB routine doesn't really apply when the D is stacked up like pancakes.

Do they go strictly man? zone? or is just hit and push?

Yeaaaaaaaaah, I still think Dunta is entirely too high. If the ratings are based on previous seasons performance, he should be in the 70's by now.

I can't wait for the game to come out so I can change the ratings..... Schaub at 77 is a joke, the whole time Carr was here I don't think he ever dropped out of the 80s.

Question Wtf?

I'm still trying to figure out how all these players dropped in ratings:

Diles, Bentley, Adibi, Ryans, June (all our LB's, June went from 91 in 09' to 68 in 10'?) Anderson, Walter (Walter stayed the same?) Schaub, Reeves, Bennett, Barber, Wilson. (all our secondary?) I don't understand it, I will have to change the rankings myself when I purchase the game?

They changed the ratings and the overall calculations this year.

I always adjust the players ratings anyways so it really doesn't matter to me. The Texans players ratings are a bit low though, especially our O-Line.
