PFF scored him as 0 sacks a lot, but his 18 hurries were a lot, and it wasn't in a ton of snaps (for instance, Mack also allowed 18 hurries, but he pass blocked on 751 snaps vs Zuttah's 520, so Zuttah's rate was a lot worse). He ended up 27th among C in PFF's pass blocking efficiency (https://www.profootballfocus.com/data/signature.php?tab=signature&season=2013&stype=r&pos=cep&teamid=-1&filter=50), so the surface numbers do square with the PFF ratings.Eck'sSneakyCheese said:The stats are coming from PFF and I can't for the life of me figure out how they relate to the ratings. My center gives up 0 sacks and gets a negative pass blocking grade? WTF? I think it's difficult to take the sum of the ratings and make that accurately describe how that line would have played as a whole. As far as Solder goes, he got dominated in some games this year. I remember his name coming up a lot in game threads and in the GOAT threads.
I'm sure people did complain about Solder but people complain about everybody in game and goat threads. Generally speaking, he's considered one of the better young tackles (Ben Muth thought a lot of him in his breakdowns last year, and B/R ranked him the #7 LT this year) but not one of the elite guys, and his PFF rating is consistent with that. Also, while Solder gave up a lot of sacks per PFF (10), his number of hurries (23) was among the lowest for LTs.
It's actually Eck's Pats, and I have no skin in the game here (I'm in your division, remember?).SMU_Sox said:I'm looking at Pats Bills here and this is my take on it.
The Bills are going to score frequently on the Pats. The Pats would score on the Bills but it won't be as easy. I'm thinking games over 50 points. I give the Pats the edge. Eck, it's nothing personal either, I just think No Mario ' sPats come oout on top 35-31 or something like that. The Bills are a really good squad and it would be very close. I also see the Bills as a definite potential wild card team if they don't win the division.
My only concern is the Pats O-Line but I don't think the Bills can exploit that enough.
