Interesting contrast between the defense and offense this week.
Nearly the entire offense graded in the green going against Carolina's awful defense.
Conversely, NO ONE on the ENTIRE defense was in the green. There was a complete lack of playmaking on the defense this week, and they also missed six tackles.
Maybe bummed out from one of their own teammates death?
Jeff Allen had his best game of the year with a 3.5. He has demonstrated remarkable improvement over the last month.
Donald Stephenson (0.4) had merely an OK game. Still only gave up one QB hit and one hurry.
Rookie year cut him some slack.
Jon Baldwin was very active with 11 whole snaps in the passing game.
Dontari Poe got pushed around in run defense but had a nice 0.6 in pass rush with 2 QB hits. He also played a whopping 47 snaps.
Rookie year but i think he is a keeper.
Siler had a very meh game (-0.8)
Jalil Brown did pretty well, giving up only 19 yards on 5 targets.
Might as well put a Belcher stat in here since it's the last time he'll ever be mentioned most likely: He was 10th in run stop percentage among ILBs this year. That's pretty good. He was also dead
last in yards per cover snap, basically making him the biggest liability at ILB in pass coverage in the league. He was targeted 12 times for 10 completions yielding 173 yards.
No pun intended i take.
Brady Quinn has a higher PFF rating than Cassel now.
