After reading this article up to Olivier Vernon, whatever small amount of respect I had for PFF is completely gone:
70. OLIVIER VERNON, NEW YORK GIANTS
Top 101 appearances: 3
After an ankle injury forced Vernon from the field early in the 2018 season, he rebounded nicely with an 86.3 overall grade and 86.0 pass rush grade, ranking 13th and tied-for-seventh respectively, among edge defenders. Vernon made an impact with 46 total pressures on 414 pass-rush snaps for a pressure rate of 11.1 percent.
I know I can't be the only Giants fan dumbfounded about just what the hell PFF writers were even watching (which I doubt they were). Anyone who watched Vernon this season knows how ineffective he was all year.
"Oh wow he got 46 pressures during the season for 11.1 percent pressure rate." To that I'll respond "So what?" He didn't get the job done. He didn't make the necessary sack or stop as evidence by the atrocious Giants defense giving up huge chunks of yardage and points. It's great Vernon got pressure, but it doesn't amount to much if he didn't get the sack or stop.
PFF is misleading everyone with these gaudy stats.
freide: As buts go I would put flowers in the Ron Dayne's class.

uther99: The Oline is just too bad to compete. If you max protect, how many WRs go out, 2? That's 2 WRs against 7 defenders, good luck.

homerj45: Thanks everyone for well wishes, results were no definite signs of cancer at this point and just need to monitor things , whew, a 80 minute MRI was definitely my fear factor moment at 6 f t5 240 lbs that was a snug fit.

GordonG: Homer, I hope you get good news this week. Like Troy, I also beat cancer. I was fortunate that it was caught very early. So early that it could have easily been diagnosed as benign.
