The same posters who will crap on PFF, will also post or read articles by Joe Buscaglia where breaks down the film. Buscaglia’s resume involves working at a radio station and then as a sports writer. That’s it. Somehow they will take his word, over analysts at PFF who have been in the NFL or college football, and watch every snap of every game of every team. Yeah, where did you read that the analysts at PFF have been in the NFL or college football? They do interview people and find people who know football. But you're assuming they've played football with zero evidence. Everything I've seen says they don't require ex-players. Just people who know football and can pass their interview. They then get some training on the grading system, and then And that's not a knock on them. PFF does an excellent job. Again, if they didn't the teams wouldn't pay them. But they're And it's not like every PFF grader watches every game. There isn't time for that. Nowhere even slightly close. You're right that watching every snap and every guy's performance on it is important to understand thoroughly player performance in any given game.. Joe does that, every guy on every snap in every Bills game. And he's been doing it for years. He's very good. So are PFF. You can get plenty from both. Neither are perfect. If they disagree, you need to look at the film yourself and figure out which one is right, and further, compare what other film watchers are saying. Saying that PFF is right on an issue because they're PFF and Buscaglia is wrong because he's Buscaglia is simply a dumb ad hominem argument.
