Now sacks and hits are very easy to count IMO. When it comes to hurries things get much more iffy. You do not have to move the QB off his spot to get credited with a hurry, you just have to make him throw it faster than he wanted to. Some times I imagine this is easy to judge, others it is down right impossible. My other problem with there PRP stat is that it's weighted against the number of snaps a player gets on pass rush plays, which essentially penalizes a player like Vernon that took the majority of his teams snaps. Being on the field is a major factor in contributing to your teams success.
    Thank you for confirming what I think some PFF subscribers don't want to admit. Their data is flawed - not all, but some. And that's why so many people don't take them seriously.

    I've heard too many NFL players - retired and active - who openly discredit them for rating things they do not know.

    Its a GAME, folks. Its supposed to entertain you, and turning it into a personal homework assignment, and then bringing your homework here, is going to create problems for you. Thats all there is to it

    98% of these boards dont care about PFF or their formulas, and why? Because they see the game of football as entertainment, not a homework assignment
    Exactly.

    I like it mostly because it's something to joke about.

    problem is no one has any idea what their "data" is. At best they give a general overview of what is taken into consideration, not the specifics. Let's say they by some miracle are able to get all the key metrics right. The other problem is that i doubt they have the $$$ to afford even one high quality professional quant to come up with all these formulas. Those guys aren't cheap. Plus any quant worth his salt would be on Wall St not some hack job company for sports.

    Yeah anyone that defends them 100% and can't admit some things don't work out really isn't being objective about it. Their stats are awesome. Player X rushed from the right side X% of the time and got X sacks, Y hits and Z hurries is awesome that you can't find anyplace else. Even though hurries is subjective it is still a nice stat line to see and know it's nothing concrete, but gives you an idea. Now saying Player X is better than Player Y based on those stats is just foolish.

    I figured players would not like it, but read up on what Bill Belichick said about it and how impossible it is to judge a guy even on his own team when he knows the exact assignment and play called.
