Saints Nation Player Grades: 2016 Midseason Report Card

By

The Saints are 4-4 at the half way point and we’ve got 8 games of grades to go with now. Overall the grades are pretty good in some cases, but of course the offense is up compared to last year and the defense is way down.

As a general point of reference:

Above 3.00 is excellent

Above 2.70 is good

Above 2.50 is considered decent

Between 2.33 and 2.49 is considered slightly better than average

Between 2.00 and 2.32 is considered average to mediocre

Below 2.oo is poor

Below I’ve listed every player I’ve graded, through 8 games, from best to worst. To “qualify” you had to play a minimum of  3 “graded” games. Just so I’m clear, playing in 4 games doesn’t necessarily constitute 4 “graded” games, as I don’t grade every special teams kick coverer. My offensive player of the midseason is Michael Thomas, my defensive player of the midseason is Kenny Vaccaro and my special teams player of the midseason is Thomas Morstead.
