Here's how they figure out the grades: http://www.profootballfocus.com/about/grading/
I think part of his falling off after the miami game was justins injury as well as his own. Without justin at 100% the offenses were able to focus more on doubling up on aldon which would still allow him to get to a qb for hurries and hits but not every player can have justins strength and sack a qb with two men hanging from his body. At least thats the logical explenation in my head.
You also have to look at the quarterbacks we played.
Brady, Wilson, Rodgers, Ryan. -- Those guys either throw the ball before you can get to them and/or they evade the sack when you get there.
The Arizona quarterback did nothing in that game, he was so terrified he had about a 1.5 sec clock in his head.
I thought Aldon applied a lot of pressure in the Super Bowl. He flat out beat his man several times. Then they started to double team him. Then Flacco evaded pressure and just threw the ball up for grabs, where they made plays.
