Could it be? Did our friends at Pro Football Focus actually show love to our good “buddy”, Clyde Gates?  ”Do you believe in miracles?  Yes!”

Let’s take a look at the grades from Sunday’s game against the Steelers, and you will see what I mean:

OFFENSE:

Geno Smith: -4.0

Bilal Powell: -1.2

Chris Ivory: -0.2

Mike Goodson: 0.4

Jeremy Kerley: -1.6

Clyde Gates: 1.1

Stephen Hill: -0.1

David Nelson: 0.1

Jeff Cumberland: 2.2

D’Brickashaw Ferguson: 1.1

Brian Winters: 0.9

Nick Mangold: 1.0

Willie Colon: 0.9

Austin Howard: -0.9

Tommy Bohanon: 0.0

How about that?  Look who was tied for the second highest grade on offense?  Clyde Gates, that’s who.  His 1.1 was the second best grade, albeit on an afternoon where the offense didn’t look very good.

In reviewing the rest of the group, Jeff Cumberland posted another positive outing, with his team leading 2.2.  The offensive line grades supported the positive grade given yesterday, as they were all positively ranked, except for Austin Howard.

No shock as far as the low-grade for Geno Smith, his grade has been low in losses, and high in wins, as you would expect.
