This is a completely subjective grade based on a person's observations and not using the rubric that the NFL office uses in grading officials. We will grade officials on a scale of 0-4.
(4): an official or crew did an outstanding job. They were presented with a very tough game, tough calls, and a very tough situation and rose to the occasion and got it right and the flow of the game was the better for them being there that day.
(3): The crew did a solid job, had good mechanics, had minimal errors in judgment calls, kept the game moving, didn't chop up the flow.
(2): The crew or official(s) made mistakes in judgment, chopped up the game flow, didn't communicate very well, and they helped bog the game down.
(1): The crew or official had several errors, showed bad mechanics over the span of the game, were indecisive in making rulings and enforcing penalties, and really bogged the game down.
(0): The crew mis-applied a rule, made a grievous timing error, missed a down, failed to administrate the game properly, or did such an irresponsible job on the field that the game turned into a travesty.
We apply tenths and hundredths of a point to the grading system to you can shade it as finely as you'd like.
