    Seems to show similar to what I was thinking, -30.3 in pass blocking -1.1 run blocking with all the starters being bad in pass blocking and good in run blocking. According to these numbers the only bright spots on offense are Foster, Fitz, Andre, and Nuk (only in the pass game).

    PFF is useful but also flawed. I don't see eye to eye with their grades a decent chunk of the time. Hopefully they keep improving it or someone comes along with something better in the near future.

    Do they post leaders at each position?

    Hard to tell how well each is doing relatively speaking

    Hah, requested as I was typing the above post. Enjoy.

    I would update the original post with all of this but unfortunately it's been too long to edit. Maybe a mod can help out?

    Oh don't leave off the O line when you are listing the bad, they clearly have red negative ratings ranging from kind of bad to really really terrible when it comes to pass blocking.

    Hopefully we can extend K Jack at a reasonable rate... he has shown he is clearly the best corner on the team and one of the better ones in the league.

    I put Ben Jones in there.

    The rest were meh.

    Brooks was almost top 3rd while the others were right in the middle.

    Look specifically at pass blocking, all of them were bad to really bad except Brooks.

    JJ Watt is also our 6th best offensive player.

    It's funny that when you look at pass blocking it's -30 of a total -40 for the offense.

    I'm not looking past it. I was just summarizing their overall grades.

    Fair enough. In summary, we need 52 more JJ Watt's

    It is frightful to think how bad the defense would be without Watt.

    Other than Kareem and Lewis, we have no other full-time players with positive grades.

    So looking at these numbers.

    Change your opinion of Bob's coaching?

    We've been competitive in every game except perhaps the Giants game.
