Defense: Surprised Scott scored that high. I guess they don't put much value on finishing the play. And the DL did play well against the run but the pass rush failed to bring Big Ben down. Big Ben is one of those QBs where sacks actually matter rather than just pressure.
I think this is why some of the grades are "high". I understand why PFF can't subjectively adjust based on the QB, but I get what you are saying and I think this leads to some of the what you see v. the players grade. I think in the end the grade is the fairer more objective way, but yea point taken.
