    Again, how is him being ranked 23 make him among the worst in the league?

    32 teams in the NFL, typically teams have two OLB, that looks to me he is right in the middle.

    I'm not even trying to stick up for them, but PFF is again, looking like some weak trash right now.

    I have no real problem with PFF, and this is not a slam on you TTF, but I rarely see anyone bring PFF to the table and make a good argument. Its just far too much information and it still does not account for everything on the field.

    It's only 4-3 OLBs in that list.

    What brings even less to the argument is dismissing stats rather than discussing them with the proper context.

    PFF seems to be trying to bring Moneyball style statistical analysis to football. It does not work as well for football as it does for baseball.

    Sure, but it still has significant value when applied correctly. Dismissing it outright is just willful ignorance.

    Yes it is true. And with baseball too the Moneyball crowd found that those stats could only tell you so much. But yes, it can be a valuable too so long as the stats are meaningful.
