Another NFL rankings article, another slight for the Seattle Seahawks.This time it’s Pro Football Focus’ rankings of the wide receivers corps of each NFL team, and while the Seahawks coming in at No. 17 overall isn’t all that bad, there’s some context that makes it look a whole lot worse.
Ahead of Seattle are the other three teams in the NFC West – Arizona is No. 12, the Rams are 15th and the 49ers are 16th. Seahawks insider Stacy Rost, co-host of 710 ESPN Seattle’s Tom, Jake and Stacy, acknowledged that the website did get one thing right with these particular rankings.
I will give Pro Football Focus credit for kind of bundling all the NFC West teams together because I really don’t think there’s that much of a gap between them,” she said last Friday on Tom, Jake and Stacy.
Where the rankings are off, however, comes down to the amount of projection Pro Football Focus takes into account while ignoring actual results, according to Rost.
