Grading the Pack - Week 13 - Cardinals vs. Packers

Here are your grades for the matchup with the Arizona Cardinals:

For those who weren’t aware, during the season I was out for a few weeks on the injured list. Recently I was able to catchup on my grades for the three games I missed against the Falcons, Cardinals, and Bears. Today I’m going to be releasing the raw grades for all three but will not have the usual videos or analysis. In the next couple weeks I’ll be providing additional analysis on how the Packers graded as a whole throughout the season. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series throughout the course of the year!

How I Grade

  • Each player starts by getting a zero or neutral grade on a play. If they performed as expected on a play, their grade stays at zero.
  • For a slightly above or below average play, the player gets graded -0.1 or +0.1. The vast majority of grades on the vast majority of plays are graded -0.1, 0, or +0.1.
  • The highest and lowest grades on an individual play are +2.0 and -2.0 respectively. These would be large, game-changing plays.
  • I won’t grade a play negatively if I cannot tell which player was at fault.
  • Most of the time it’s difficult to tell the play, so I’m not grading on the execution of the play call as an NFL coach would.
  • The goal of this exercise is to grade every snap over the course of the season to get a long-term view of which performers are performing well and which are not meeting expectations. This is very similar to what Pro Football Focus tries to achieve. Is it perfect? No. But what you are getting is a consistent grader who is watching specifically Packer games and putting multiple hours into every week to breakdown film and assign grades.
  • Grades are for offense and defense only (including two point conversions). Special teams does not factor in.
