Oakland-raiders-helmet_medium

Week 6

The Oakland Raiders beat the Cleveland Browns, 24-17, this past Sunday.  The Raiders ended the day with 151 yards of rushing, their 5th game this season of 100 yards or more in a game.

Last week the offensive line had some problems in pass protection.  This week, the Raiders front 5  had a very good game in both run blocking and pass blocking.  And the Raiders just might have found the fullback they need to finish out the season (FB scores, here)  The lineman did miss a couple of loop stunts...but for the most part it was an encouraging day.

This week Jared Veldeer stepped it up in the passing game by recording a 88% assignments grade and a +5 power score.  The high power score tells us that Veldeer dictated the action in pass protection this week more than he was dominated.

Let's take a look at the rest of those scores...

Did the lineman get the job done or not?  These grades are good for understanding value for a team and not necessarily for comparing across teams.  A game in the mid 80s to 90% is a decent score.
How often did the offensive lineman dominate the block or how often did he get dominated?  These scores are good for comparing across teams and finding  the most dominant lineman in the league.   
Anything over zero is a good score.  The more over zero the more the lineman dominated the defender.  Each lineman is scored a minus for being dominated, a zero for a draw, or a plus for dominating the defender.
The number of success over failures for the lineman when blocking linebackers and safeties on the second level.  The lineman must be athletic to accomplish a high second level score.

Run Blocking Notes:

  • Stefen Wisniewski and Samson Satele get a great double team run block on the first play of the game.  You always like seeing the lineman go out and punch the defenders right in the mouth the very first play to let them know how its going to be for the rest of the game. 
  • Wisniewski gets a good block at 10:19 in the 1st when he fires out and stands a defender up as the Manase Tango takes an inside hand-off for a good gain.
  • This week, Oakland flips Veldeer and Barnes a few times on the line.
  • Cooper Carlisle and Khalif Barnes get a combo run block on a defender at 5:47 in the 1st quarter,  It's a nice drive and movement off the line of scrimmage.
  • Samson Satele sees the run blitz off his back hip a little to late as the defender rushes past him and tackles the back in the backfield: 3:26 in the 2nd.
  • Samson Satele and Cooper Carlisle team up to drive a defender 4 yards down field at 4:31 in the 3rd quarter.  You would think that since the Raiders have such high rushing totals that their lineman have been blocking lights-out....but they haven't.  This is one game in which the Raider lineman are doing a good job all the way around.  Even on the 2nd level...an area they have had trouble with before this game.
  • At :12 in the 3rd quarter, Wisniewski drives his man into the ground.  Nice.
  • Khalif Barnes is starting to be one of my favorite players.  One reason is that he is pretty good.  The other is that he can pass block...AND...he is starting to show a little nasty side in the run game.  And it appears the Raiders have been noticing it because they tended to run his way when they flipped him to left tackle a few times.  Check out 9:23 in the 4th quarter.  Barnes drives his man about 3 yards to the inside and then when the defender slightly turns his back to Khalif as Barnes is driving him...Khalif hooks his arm around his neck (from behind) and pull him back on top of him and to the ground.  The defender didn't like that much.
  • The Raiders are averaging 5.47 yards per attempt when rushing toward their right tackle (Barnes).  Check out all the rushing totals per area, here.
  • Barnes drives another to the ground at 8:46 in the 4th.
  • Carlisle and Veldeer get a nice combo block that drives a defender of the ball at 6:02 in the 4th on one of the plays that Veldeer and Barnes flip positions.

Did the lineman get the job done or not?  These grades are good for understanding value for a team and not necessarily for comparing across teams.  A game in the 90% is a good score for pass blocking.
How often did the offensive lineman dominate the block or how often did he get dominated?  Each lineman is scored a minus for being dominated, a zero for a draw, or a plus for dominating the block. How often did the offensive lineman give up pressure on the quarterback?  Every once and a while a lineman can do his job but give up pressure on the QB.  This stat will help glean more info from the line grades.
How often did the offensive coordinator provide help for a tough defender or a struggling lineman.  Yea, two lineman ended up with the same grade...but how much help did either of them get?

Pass Blocking Notes:

  • At 5:08 in the 2nd quarter, Samson Satele gets driven back during a passing play and into the pocket.  He does a nice job at diverting the defender to the side and riding him away from the center of the pocket though.
  • The Raiders do a lot better this week at picking up stunts.  The Browns don't have the same horses that the Texans had...but Oakland looked more confident in passing players off.  You could tell they were concentrating on defender stunts every time they went back to pass.  At 2:52 in the 2nd, Wisniewski and Satele do a very nice job of passing off the defender.
  • The Raiders do have a couple of lapses during pass protection, however.  On at 14:04 in the 3rd and another at 12:15 in the 3rd quarter.
  • Wisniewski is still having a few problems with pass protection.  He gets beat at :54 in the 2nd, 5:58 in the 3rd, and 2:13 in the 3rd quarter.
  • Khalif Barnes gets beat at 2:05 in the 3rd quarter and gives up a sack.
