    Agreed. It's not all about sacks, and my complaint is not all about sacks. It is also about tackles, assists, deflected passes, QB hits -- all of which were sore]y lacking again. He had only one tackle and zero in those other stats. Yes, that is a heck of a performance.

    I admit that I don't understand what PFF calls a "pressure," but I do know what my eyes are seeing. What will be said if Peppers doesn't touch Stafford? Or against the Giants on October 10 -- who have terrible tackles?

    Hopefully we see great play in this next game. Actually, we need a stellar performance out of both of our lines Sunday. I'm hoping both the defense & offensive lines step up bigtime.

    We saw what Suh did to Jay last year. That must be avoided at all costs. If Suh gets his hands on Cutler, he will try to injure him. If I were Trestman, I'd tell Long to hold Suh as much as necessary to protect Cutler. No problem.

    I am still curious why anyone takes Pro Football Focus' rankings and grades so seriously

    I was curious enough myself to look up their website for their definition of pressures. It means "sacks, hits, or hurries." By THAT definition, nobody should take their Peppers grade seriously IMO. Of course, a "hurry" is more open to subjective interpretation than a "sack" or a "hit".

    They also graded Webb out to be the Bears best OL last year.

    Credibility lost

    Well, they didn't have much to choose from. Webb's competition for their "honor" were guys like Carimi, Louis, Spencer,Williams, Davis. Except for Garza, that whole crowd has shipped out of Chicago.

    Not that, I just cannot take a site's grades seriously that actually said Webb was good
