Old man Brady sitting pretty at no 1. More distance between 1 and 2 than between 2 and 6.B|

If anything the Brady being 44 thing isn't getting enough attention. The guy is playing like a top 3 QB and the ball is zipping out of his hand better than it ever has. Meanwhile  his peers a few years younger than him seem to be hitting the usual late 30s wall.

He has more completions over 20+ yards than any other QB (27) and according to PFF hasn't had a single turnover worthy play through 5 games. Also according to NGS he has the longest throw of the year (65 yards) and the highest velocity throw as well.

When did Ben Jones become so good? He was a disaster in Houston (this was during the Kubiak days too, so not like it's a BoB/Easterby thing either).

AFAIK he’s been pretty highly regarded in Tennessee for a while, though not elite or anything 

Blue is correct. And that is also the case this year, with way more uneven play. No way he’s a top 5 C this year, or it’s a really bad year for centers.

In fact, it’s a pretty scathing indictment on PFF’s OL grading system that the Titans have so many in the top 5. Tannehill already has been sacked more this year than all of last year.

Hey PFF, try applying meaningful positional values proportionately when you use your top and bottom grades:

 

Derrick Henry is the top rusher in the NFL right now, and Derrick Henry after first contact is the second leading rusher in the NFL (or was before the last week, not sure now).  He's also on pace to shatter his previous receiving record (125 yards so far).

Didn't even crack the top 5.

Andre Weingarten on Twitter: "I'm not sure what to make of this, so here are some numbers re: 44 year old Tom Brady: 1. He has the longest air distance pass this year (64.5 yards) 2. He registered the fastest pass thrown this year (61.53 MPH, idk which throw) 3. Hit his fastest top speed of NGS era (16.36)" / Twitter

 

He is probably going to get tested soon because this doesn't make any sense.

Derwin James ranked 52nd has me even more skeptical of PFF'S grade. 

He's spreading his time through a lot of positions, so that's not surprising.

On the other hand:

CENTER

Top 5:
1. Creed Humphrey 87.1
2. Frank Ragnow 86.2
3. Jason Kelce 82.8
4. Corey Linsley 78.7
5. Ben Jones 76.8

 

This is surprising, doesn't match my eye test. He has been decent-good not great.

Is every other center in the league playing at such a low level?

I’m confused about this list, Michael Badgley is a bottom 5 kicker yet the Colts signed him to the practice squad yesterday and from what I’ve seen he hasn’t been on an active roster since week 1. 

He started a game for the Titans.  Missed the only field goal he attempted and also missed one of two extra points.

Which is probably why he's so low.
