Re: '05 Free Agent Spreadsheet
I just noticed that about Killings, that's pretty crazy.

Anyway, here's how Insider breaks down its grades:

90-100: Elite Player
Player demonstrates rare abilities and can create mismatches that have an obvious impact on the game. ... Premier NFL player with all the skills to consistently play at a championship level... Rates in the top 5 at his position in the league.

80-89: Outstanding Player
Player has abilities to create mismatches against most opponents in the NFL. ... A feature player who has an impact on the outcome of the game. ... Cannot be shut down by a single player and plays on a consistent level week in and week out. ... Rates at the top 10 at his position in the league.

75-79: Solid Starter
Solid starter who is close to being an elite player. ... No glaring weaknesses and will usually win his individual match-up, but does not dominate in every game, especially when matched against the top players in the league. ... Will usually rate in the top 20 players at his position in the league.

70-74: Good Starter
Good starter who is usually a consistent player with excellent competitiveness and is the heart of the team, but is not a dominant player against the better players he faces on a weekly basis. ... Gives you great effort, and you are glad he is on your team, but he may or may not go to the next level.

65-69: Adequate Starter
This player is an adequate starter who will give a solid effort week in and week out, but he is overmatched against the better players in the league. ... His weaknesses will be exposed, and he will not survive most man-to-man matchups. ... He is a player you like having on your team, but he is never going to be a star, and you could live with him. ... He defines the term "blue collar."

60-64: Good Backup
This is a player who is really on the bubble and only starts because of a team's deficiency at the position. ... He lacks complete overall skills, and although he will battle, he will hinder his team's ability to play at a championship level if forced to be in the starting lineup consistently over a 16-game season. ... This player needs to be a solid contributor in the kicking game or show great versatility at his position to keep his roster spot. ... He is a player you don't mind having on your team, but you are always looking to upgrade.

55-59: Adequate Backup
This is strictly a backup player who is not capable of starting. ... If forced to start, he is only a short-term fix. ... He may make the team because of special teams contributions or experience. ... He is a player you are always looking to upgrade, and you must be aware of alerts in this category, such as age, injury, etc.

50-54: Marginal Backup
This player is hanging on by a thread and is only on your team because there is nobody else to take his place. ... He has significant weaknesses in his game. ... He is not close to being a starter, and he is only an adequate contributor on special teams. ... This is a player you want to replace as quickly as possible.

45-49: Poor Player
Emergency fill-in player who may or may not know the system and has little value other than level of his experience. ... Likely to be a weekly emergency-type player who fills in because of injuries. ... Not a long-term solution, and not a player you want to keep around any longer than necessary.

30: Developmental Player, '04 Draft Choice, High-rated Rookie Free Agent
Player 25 years or younger with little or no video tape available to evaluate him. ... Needs to be tracked because of his developmental potential.No professional football experience to evaluate. ... Will have a report based on projection from college. Entering professional football for the first time. ... No prior professional football experience, unable to evaluate.

Re: '05 Free Agent Spreadsheet
Thanks, smootsmack! I like the spreadsheet format.

What a great tool for Warpath fans. I'm sure everyone will really appreciate having this at their disposal over the next few weeks.

Re: '05 Free Agent Spreadsheet
Once again big thanks to SS for putting this together, it's definitely going to be a great resource.

Re: '05 Free Agent Spreadsheet
Consider this my "donation" for the month, until I can scrounge up some actual money

And please let me know if you catch any errors. I think I sent this to Matty like three different times because I kept noticing mistakes

Re: '05 Free Agent Spreadsheet
Excellent post Smootsmack! The breakdown of scores makes it so much more meaningful!

When/if F. Smoot signs with someone else during FA, will that mean you will be forced to change your name, or are you already known as Denim_Monger?

Re: '05 Free Agent Spreadsheet
Fantastic resource.
It shows me how system really matters in determining how players are thought of in terms of talent. The grading on these guys seems to completely ignore anything other pure physical talent regardless of stats and system which I think is a great thing. A good example is Ed Hartwell in Baltimore I would have thought he'd get a bigger grade but based pruley on talent he is not a true elite type player. they just have a great system with other solid players around him. Smoot basically falls in the same boat. I would have thought his grade would have been marginally higher but it shows he isn't the pure talent that he thinks he is. I would quibble a lot of some things but honestly they know more than me.
