  1. I dabble in sports betting, nothing crazy. Haven't bet nearly what I normally do on NFL this year because I really am starting to think the fix is in. Last night's ending to the LA/SF MLB game was a joke too. And there are zero repercussions in any leagues, EVER. That fact just drives home that I think it's fixed. 

     

    Edit: AEW sh*ts all over the NFL. Yes I'm being serious.

    The teams that are most successful are the ones using the most analytics.  And the numbers teams are using are much, much more in-depth than what PFF provides, and NFL teams probably laugh at them. 

    Might as well get used to it.

    I am not opposed to analytics, not at all. But the respect that site gets for what is clear to me a very flawed system, is nuts. But also, and I see this in sports betting, is people who are ONLY about that stuff. The human element is ignored. JMO.

    Kids were doing this with Madden since it's inception. I remember showing my dad as a kid that I knew who the fast players in the NFL were purely by sorting by speed haha

    I agree. I'm 42, totally a part of that generation. NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA Jam (I'm old) video games, yep I get it.  That said, Mike Vick was rated a 99 at one time and everyone lost their sh*t thinking he was the greatest QB ever. He wasn't. Not even close. Not the best QB of his era even. Guy was good for SportsCenter highlights if we're being honest. I think PFF's whole deal is to make humans who play football into Madden players and in real life it's just BS. There's SO many variables.

     

    I remember Kyle Wilson being rated super high by them. 'Well, if you look at his 2nd and short snaps he's....'

    Get the **** out of here. That guy SUCKED. PFF is a grift. Sorry.

  4. My issue with PFF, and all the recent-ish analytical stuff in sports in general, is that they're putting rating numbers on human beings. They're a good tool sometimes in regards to sports betting or just who's the better team, etc. It's not always that simple though.

     

    Just my late night opinion.

    We're the youngest team in the league, starting multiple rookies on both sides of the ball, have a first year coaching staff and one of the least talented rosters in the league.

    Granted, we're all right to be frustrated after week one where nobody on the offensive line did their job and week two where our quarterback throws four interceptions.

    But at some point expectations should match reality, and I think the coaching staff and the front office know this is a 'redshirt' year.

    We've missed the playoffs for 10 years and prices sure as sh*t aren't going down. The Jets get no more excuses.
