  1. He's not Cooks because he has Contested Catch ability.
  2. They include all aspects of QB play in the overall grade and have separate grades for passing and running.
  3. Actually Mayfield only had 4 more turnovers than Allen when you combine fumbles and Interceptions. I do believe they're biased against Josh because I see it in their writings and the things they say. I don't know how much that effects the grade but I do know that it distorts the narrative they have about him. My post wasn't to defend PFF, it was to explain why their rating of Allen is what it is. I think the rating is flawed because they put too much weight on big plays and not enough on the short to intermediate game that is necessary to win in the NFL. Big plays matter but just the threat alone can be enough to make a team successful if their really good at the short and intermediate. When it comes to grading QB's, I don't like their system mostly because of that.
  4. The reason Allen doesn't rank high in the PFF system is because he wasn't good throwing over 30 yards and he had too many turnovers. It is as simple as that. They have admitted that Allen was top 10 in the short to intermediate game according to their system. The problem with their system is that it weighs too heavily on big plays vs turnovers, the 2 areas Allen struggled the most. What they fail to recognize is that Allen's turnover problem isn't necessarily something that is not fixable. Jameis Winston throws a lot of interceptions every year because he makes bad decisions of every type and has never shown the ability to be something different. Allen on the other hand had most of his interceptions in the first half of the season and most of them were because he tried to play hero ball when the offense was struggling. Allen wasn't throwing interceptions because he didn't understand what the defense was doing, he threw them in spite of knowing exactly what was happening. That is why he was able to fix it and why the Allen of the second half of the season is more likely to be the player he will be. The second half of the season saw Allen fumbling too much but how much of that really defines what kind of QB Allen will be? Fumbles have a lot to do with luck and protection and even if it isn't, it can still be easily fixed. The point is, it is reasonable to expect that this will be the worst year for Allen in the number of turnovers, especially if the team around him continues to improve. The other area where Allen wasn't that good was in deep ball accuracy and there was a multitude of reasons for that but ultimately, for most QB's, deep ball accuracy isn't stable from year to year. Tom Brady would be the most notable great QB that has never been consistently good at throwing the deep ball. So the 2 things Allen was bad at this year are the 2 things that aren't stable from year to year (deep passing and turnovers). For those reasons, there is no reason to believe Allen won't be better next year and that's what frustrates me most about PFF; they have an expectation of Allen not getting any better than he was this year.
  5. 20 years after the Music City Miracle, the Bills get revenge this is the one I like
  6. The truth is that his early interceptions happened because he was knowingly forcing throws that weren't there or he threw them late across the field. It had nothing to do with trying to make tight window throws and everything to do with playing recklessly. There is a difference. Throwing recklessly is when the DB has position on the receiver and there really isn't a place to put the ball but the QB throws it anyway. Throwing into tight windows is when the receiver has position but the QB has to put it into a perfect spot to keep the defender making a play on the ball. The difference is that Allen stopped playing recklessly, not cautiously.
