NFLPA Team Report Cards


Recommended Posts

Interesting, I would like to see more info on how many players were actually provided the survey? How many players per team were actually provided the survey? How many responses did each team get?  Were practice squad players allowed to participate?

 

The article says 1,300 players responded. 

There are 32 teams with 53 man rosters and 14 practice squad players per team.  Of course, those numbers are not static throughout the year....but just going with the static number, that means a minimum of 2,144 players could have responded.  Making the survey response rate of 60%

Results for any team can be skewed dramatically if only a limited number of players responded, but if a large percentage of Jets players responded and the grades were still that low, then this is fairly telling.

If you click on the jets it brings up an entire page about it.

found this part interesting….

 

The player respondents don’t feel like the coaching staff (ranked last) is efficient with their time as they are routinely at the facilities much later than other teams in the league. Longer hours are not necessarily correlated to winning, as seven of the top eight coaches who ranked most efficient with their players' time made the playoffs this year.

As you said, this was interesting.
Some rankings were a little surprising… as I’m always reading about our state of the art facility in Florham Park.
You know who is most likely respond right ? Guys that are not happy or guys that are asked.by management to comply in order to look good. These polls always look the same.

NFLPA does many things wrong, but this was a cool initiative they took in order to help rate what they determined to be the best and worst franchises as it pertains to their treatment of players/families of players, facilities, staff, travel accommodations, etc. 

Kind of like the White House, administration officials come and go, but the One Jets Drive staff largely remains constant, which largely gets ignored by players and fans. At the end of the day money talks and BS walks, but having resources available to help rate teams in the less traditional respects is a great idea to help players decide where they want to play and also should give teams some feedback into how players view their operation in order to make constructive improvements.

Shockingly (sarcasm), the Jets were below average in many categories

  • Treatment of Families: C+ (20th) 
  • Nutrition: C- (17th) 
  • Weight Room: B- (21st) 
  • Strength Staff: B (30th)
  • Training Room: C+ (20th) 
  • Training Staff: B (29th) 
  • Locker Room: B- (17th) 
  • Travel: B- (18th) 

 

All of these can be solved with $

What makes these things good or bad?  Who are they talking to?  Is it good to have  strength coach riding you to get better or is it bad to have a strength coach hurt your feelings by telling you to get to work?

Nutrition, what do they ask?  Does Becton give the Jets a D because he cant haz all the cheeseburgers he wants?

For curmudgeons like me this sounds like whining entitlement about not having every aspect of you life looked after by the a team.

These numbers are going to come down when Becton gets back.

Steam Room/Sauna

  • There is a steam room (63% feel it is big enough)
  • There is a sauna (60% feel it is big enough)

Tubs

  • 71% of players feel they have enough hot tub space
  • 71% of players feel they have enough cold tub space

DURING THE LAST TWO YEARS, THE BOARD OF REPRESENTATIVES HAS DISCUSSED WAYS TO IMPROVE THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO FREE AGENTS MAKING DECISIONS ABOUT THEIR PROSPECTIVE CLUBS AND DECIDED TO PURSUE THE DEVELOPMENT OF “CLUB REPORT CARDS” THAT, WHILE NOT A SCIENTIFIC SURVEY, WOULD REPORT THE QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE OPINIONS OF NFL PLAYERS ABOUT THEIR RESPECTIVE CLUBS.

 

IN CONNECTION WITH THAT GOAL, QUESTIONS WERE SENT TO EVERY PLAYER ON THE 2022 TEAM ROSTERS ASKING THEM THEIR OPINIONS ABOUT THEIR CLUB’S FACILITIES, CERTAIN CLUB PERSONNEL/COACHES, AND OTHER WORK-RELATED CATEGORIES, SUCH AS CLUB’S TREATMENT OF FAMILIES AND TEAM TRAVEL (PLAYERS WERE NOT ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY CLUB OTHER THAN THEIR 2022 EMPLOYER). AS A RESULT OF THE CONFIDENTIAL QUESTIONNAIRE, 1,300 PLAYERS RESPONDED. THERE THEN WAS A QUALITATIVE FOLLOW UP BY THE UNION, WHICH RESULTED IN THE FOLLOWING “REPORT CARD.”

 

THE QUESTIONS CALLED FOR BOTH QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE ANSWERS; FOR EXAMPLE: “GRADE YOUR WEIGHT ROOM WITH 1 REFLECTING BEST RATING, 5 REFLECTING LOWEST RATING” AND “WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOUR WEIGHT ROOM?” THE NUMERICAL RATINGS FOR EACH SUB-CATEGORY OF QUESTIONS WERE TALLIED AND AVERAGED. THE QUESTIONNAIRE ALSO SOUGHT TO ELICIT THE OPINION OF PLAYERS ON SOME ISSUES THAT HAVE A DIRECT IMPACT ON THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR NFL PLAYERS. THESE QUALITATIVE RESPONSES, WHICH ARE INHERENTLY SUBJECTIVE, WERE REVIEWED AND EVALUATED BY THE UNION AND THEN FACTORED INTO PROVIDING AN OVERALL RATING THAT WAS INTENDED TO REFLECT PLAYER OPINIONS.

 

BASED UPON ALL OF THIS INFORMATION, THE RANKINGS FROM CLUB TO CLUB WERE DETERMINED BY COMPARING HOW EACH CLUB GRADED IN EACH CATEGORY.

 

FINALLY, THE CLUB REPORT CARD INCLUDES AN OVERVIEW, WHICH IS A SUMMARY OF THE PLAYERS’ RESPONSES AND OPINIONS ABOUT THE CLUB WORKPLACE AND SPECIFICALLY ABOUT HOW PLAYERS PERCEIVED CLUBS’ COMMITMENT TO WORKPLACE ISSUES.

Can someone smarter than myself explain this.sh*t ...

Strength Staff: B (30th) ??

It isn't on a curve. Everyone else got better grades.

Could be how would you rate them on a scale of 1 - 10.

If the Jets got an 8, that is the B.

So the majority of other programs got As ? Whatever.. B is much better than I expected.

How about the cookie-cutter stadium and the injury causing turf?!?!

I have a family member who is friends with a player that is in the NFL now. Not on the Jets.

He saw him last weekend and they were chatting about stadiums. The player said, the fans are right, MetLife is a dump.

A lot of players couldn’t even be bothered to vote on the last CBA so I’d be skeptical of this “report.” I’d bet a bunch of agents filled it out too.

Id like so see what they qualifying questions were. How’s travel graded? These guys aren’t traveling by rickshaw.
