    Thanks.

    These PFF ratings are cumulative, right?

    It'd be nice if they'd standardize them per snap. For example: (rating/snaps)100.

    As it is listed, you have Bell with the best rating at 15.1 followed by Blount (10.1), Moreno (9.9), Brown (6.9) and Leonard (6.3).

    But, if you standardize them, Blount scores considerably better than all with 3.49. For reference, Bell (2.68), Leonard (2.07), Brown (1.82) and Moreno (1.36).

    Also, Dwyer, who's 8th with 4.1 would score 2.90 standardized (better than all of the above but Blount).

    Yes, positive or negative rating per play added up.

    But RBs, for instance, are graded on running/receiving/blocking(pass block/screen block/run block)/penalties and then those 4 grades are added to get an overall rating per game. Drilling down even further you can see how many QB sacks/hits/hurries were due to that particular RB; how many missed tackles they caused; complete receptions mapping, targets, YAC, % caught, INTs when targeted, missed tackles in pass game, drops, etc. Then each RB has an offensive snaps summary for run/pass/run block/pass block.

    So more snaps gives the potential for higher positive and lower negative overall totals. Like Watt had to have a lot of snaps to get his +111.6 overall rating. But as far as crunching the numbers further than what PFF presents, I think you can end up confusing the message they originally give.

    I heard HOU-TEX will be a free agent this year. I say we pick him up on a 1 year 19.5 million guaranteed tryout

    I agree. There's no way. Seattle will have to choose between Bennett and Clemons, and Bennett will probably be too expensive.

    It's an extension of the ubiquitous "all teams will emulate the Seahawks", "all players want to be Seahawks" media maxims.

    That seems extremely high for a guy who has been at best "middling" next to one outstanding DE and one above average DE. I am under the impression he was here during Bush's last year before Phillips came in and didn't really do anything (granted, he might've been a rookie if he was here at that time).

    He's been playing out of position for us. I think his best fit is as a nose in a 43. In a 34 he should be playing end.

    I will plead ignorance here. I'm not used to the term 4-3 NT. I have always associated NT with lining up over the center in a 3-4 or 5-2. Of course when I played a base 4-3 we were called Defensive Guards at the inside positions and Defensive Tackles at the outside positions.

    But I'm so old I played both ways and wore 13 as an interior lineman. And the goal posts were still on the goal line. (Nice extra blockers if you used them.)

    A traditional NT is head up on the center. In a 43 defense it is not necessary. But a lot of teams use a 43 Over, made famous by the Tampa 2 defensive style, which shifts the strongside DT into a three technique and the weakside DT shades the center. Because of this formation, the weakside tackle must be a little bit stronger at the point of attack than a traditional DT. He is often called the NT to distinguish him from the quicker three tech.
