This is the normal time that I put out the O-Line breakdown...but I'm sure it seems to be a long time since last Thursday.  Let's hope that there is still those that still want to see how the offensive line graded out.  Brandon Myers probably had his most consistent run blocking game last Thursday.  You can check out the TEs and backs, here.

Cooper Carlisle is not a name that has made a lot of headlines the past 9 games.  But this week, against the Chargers, Carlisle has a solid day.  He ends up with a 83% assignment grade and a +1 power score in run blocking and a 95% pass blocking assignment grade.

 

If you are interested in the offensive line cumulative grades and rankings through week #8, in the AFC West, then go here, LT, LG, C, RG, RT.

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:

  • Cooper Carlisle didn't start out good, but he finished well.  On the second play of the game, Carlisle misses his block and the defender makes a play.  He gets a nice pull block at 2:58 in the first, however.
  • At 14:27 in the 2nd quarter, Khalif Barnes and Cooper Carlisle combo run block a defender and drive him inside to open a nice hole.  Always fun to watch offensive lineman drive defenders.
  • At 11:46 in the 2nd quarter, Carlisle and Wisniewski team up and get a great push on the defender.  Unfortunately, a defender from the backside beats his defender and makes the play.
  • Stephen Heyer gets to see a lot of playing time due to the injury to Samson Satele.  The Raiders move Wisniewski to center and place Heyer at left guard. 
  • When every offensive lineman gets grades in the 80s and low 90s...you know you where moving the ball.  Nice job by the offensive line.

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:

  • Barksdale really didn't have very many reps.
  • Not much to complain about in the pass protection area.  Of course, the Raiders didn't pass as much as they did last week...but they probably shouldn't be passing that much.
  • At 3:40 in the 3rd quarter, Heyer gets a little more than he can handle, and gets driven backwards.  He has a couple of plays where he gets driven...but most of the plays he does a nice job.
  • Not many passing notes this week.
