    Advanced stats probably isn't really the best way to look at the situation, either. What I see on the field is an ineffective group of linebackers, but I acknowledge I'm no scouting expert.

    Do you guys see something else?

    I'm not dismissing it outright.

    Your argument is that Ayers and Brown are playing poorly, however, PFF has Ayers as a top 10 OLB. Your sources are flawed.

    no, I agree with you, OLB has been a disappointment. I am just not fond of PFF in some/most cases.

    I'm sorry, but how can that be considered proper context?

    Of all stats, complex and proprietary formulas like the ones you just posted need at the very minimum an explanation of what they intend to measure.

    I cited overall grades, which are self-explanatory.

    I don't really feel like doing your work for you and making your argument if all you're gonna do is dump data.

    Those early picks should have been used on D-line. A good d-line > LB/Secondary

    Oh I've read the thread. That's why the ball is back in your court. What "context" do you offer?

    It looks like yalls website is just full of bs. One part of the site says brown is basically top 10 and the other says ayers is top 10 and brown sucks. What the hell?
