ProFootballFocus.com Not Impressed With Cordaro Howard

We spoke briefly this morning about perception, and how one excellent performance can really gloss over reality, in discussing the Buffalo Bills' rushing attack. One player that most Bills fans have been "impressed" with is undrafted rookie Cordaro Howard, who started at right tackle in Baltimore in place of the injured Cornell Green. Given how well Buffalo's offense played - Ryan Fitzpatrick in particular - most fans were quick to assume that Howard had performed admirably in his first career start, while openly wondering whether it was time to release Green.

ProFootballFocus.com, however, disagrees with that perception. Rather vehemently, we might add.

Saying that Howard looked "outmatched," PFF credits Howard with six pressures and two hits allowed on Fitzpatrick, while also noting that the Bills averaged just 1.3 yards per carry on rushes to the right side of the offensive alignment. Needless to say, Howard's PFF grade from the Baltimore game was rather poor.

Here's the kicker, however, from the author of the post, Ben Stockwell: "... though Cornell Green isn't going to be making any Pro Bowl or All-Pro squads, he's a big upgrade on Howard."

Well, then.
