PFF claims Matt Milano has struggled this year

I actually think Milano is the big reason our run defense fell apart. 

 

He was getting swallowed up a lot, and not covering his gaps in the zone scheme.  I get that our d-line needs to prevent clean guys getting through but if he doesn't attack the gap then he's not even muddying it up and letting the guy get to the 2nd level really easily.

Milano is struggling to fall out of Pro Bowl contention. He really needs to crap out.

How dare he  for a 5th round pick not to be in the conversation for the pro bowl ??? Everyone in the scouting department needs to go plain & simple

True and Edmunds too has been very inconsistent getting off blocks but I agree with those who say he has not been 100% physically. When on his game he's clearly playing at a high level and doing exactly what's expected of him in this defence. Plus he's a natural playmaker.

he was late a few times in coverage this week - but maybe he didnt break it up... he was laying lumber all day tho.

Well in all honesty I don't think his season justifies that accolade so far but I don't think he's been totally right physically either. When he's on he looks really good to me so if he can play with more consistency I could see him receiving that consideration.

The data the NFL teams use is not the rankings they provide to the public.  It's more hard data like snap counts for different players in different situations, situational data, stuff like that.

Two comments:  1)  After mid-season poor performances, the Bills came on strong the last two seasons.  Let's hope they can do the same this season.  Miami is not a good team, but we played them much better than the 1st time and this one was in their house.  Perhaps the Cleveland game was our wakeup call.  2)  Milano's injury last year was pretty severe and I was surprised how quickly he came back to playing full-time.  I don't think he missed any offseason work, training camp, etc.  When you combine last year's injury, with this year's, it's likely he hasn't been 100% in quite a while.  Maybe he is finally getting back to 100% at the right time.  Weak opponent aside, Milano looked much faster yesterday than he has looked all season, and I don't think he's been too bad this season.  He's a very good player and a huge part of our defense.

Very much emblematic of the entire defense this year, Milano has been inconsistent, excellent in spurts, makes highlight reel plays, is out of position and gap read often, gives up plays, and then is quite good in the red zone. He has had some good games overall but not consistent.

I reference them when when they support my arguments.  Otherwise, I dislike them.

Lol. I find this to be the case with most fans. Truth is they watch everything and give an opinion. They aren't bad but you can't take their grades as facts. They are useful however. I find most of the time their grades are equal to what I see.

Many Bills fans hate PFF because they are honest and unbiased and they actually watch the players closely and measure their performance. They don't measure players by popularity. Bills fans tend to judge the players by their feelings toward them. Hence, Allen and Milano are great when, in fact, neither player is better than average.

Not me. I don't give any credence to any of PFFs made up stats.

Fans love PFF when it sheds a positive light on their favorite players.  If it doesn't, disregard it as they don't know what they're talking about.  It's like political polls.

Teams seem to attack him in the run game particularly in the nickel. 

 

Outstanding in pass coverage. 

 

Probably was still slowed by the hammy v philly and Browns

He wasn't ready to start the season, seemed to favor the leg or was worried if it wouldn't hold up. I don't think he was 100% till just a few weeks ago.

Anyone who had a serous injury like Milano's understands the mental part of overcoming a serious injury. Over time you just block it out.

Been there...

A dainty one. Mine are more like the fabric of space and time ripping.
