PFF Rankings for the Atlanta Falcons
Top 3 Players On Offense
1. Justin Blalock-OG 7.9
Coming off a terrible game against the Redskins. Has been very good in pass protection, lousy as a run blocker.
2. Matt Ryan-QB 6.0
The wheels have come off the bus but Ryan remains consistent, still has an outstanding completion percentage, not playing as well as he did last season but still one of the very best QB's in the NFL.
3. Tony Gonzalez-TE 2.5
No big surprise, older, but still a dangerous threat, has been struggling terribly as a blocker, still a receiving weapon and red-zone threat.
3 Lowest Ranked Players on Offense
1. Lamar Holmes-OL -30.1
Holmes is the lowest ranked offensive lineman by PFF scoring. He's been terrible as a run blocker, even worse in pass blocking.
2. Peter Konz-OL -23.1
Better than Holmes, but not by much. Has been almost equally bad when it comes to pass blocking.
3. Roddy White-WR -2.8
Not a good season for him, injuries have taken their toll, he hasn't nearly looked the same but has been on an upwards tick over the past couple of weeks, still a dangerous receiving threat.
Defensive Player Rankings
Top 3 Players on Defense
1. Desmond Trufant-CB 8.6
Rookie corner has been up and down throughout the season but has been doing very well recently. Great size and athleticism.
2. Jordan Babineaux-DL 6.8
Veteran lineman has been effective in stuffing the run, hasn't brought much as a pass rusher.
3. Corey Peters -DT 5.7
Just like Babineaux, he's done well in stuffing the run, inconsistent when it comes to the pass rush.
3 Lowest Ranked Players On Defense
1. Paul Worilow-OLB -12.7
Terrible in pass coverage, also mediocre in terms of stopping the run, missed tackles are a specialty of his.
2. Thomas DeCoud-S -11.2
Has struggled in coverage, missed tackles, been caught out of position, bad season for him.
3. Sean Weatherspoon-OLB -10.2
Has missed most of the season due to injury, hasn't been anything to write home about when healthy.
