The Oakland Raiders loss to the Green Bay Packers, 46-16. Oakland is now 7-6 on the season.

Games like the Green Bay game are just the reason I do offensive line film grading. The score, the yardage, it all points toward thinking the offensive lineman did a poor job. Well, they didn't.

Last week I was the first to tell you that I was sick when I graded the Raiders film. This week, not so much. The problem wasn't the line...the problem was the Packers, although they are stout, they had a lot of blitzes called.

The Packers blitzed on passing downs and running downs...just about any down they where given. And all those defenders where not always accounted for in the play selection. So, last week I came to tell you the line did a poor job. This week, I'm telling you....they did a good job.

The backs and tight ends did just a decent job, also. If you are interested in their grades then, go here.

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:

  • At 14:27 in the 1st quarter, the Packers have a run blitz on the 2nd play of the game. The Packers did a lot of blitzing on runs and passes. You can see the defender at the top of the screen ready to disrupt the play.

**Pic from Sunday's NFL game

  • At 6:28 in the 1st quarter, Veldeer takes an outside defender instead of the inside man. The defender ends up making the tackle at the line of scrimmage. Another example of blitzing defenders disrupting the running game.

  • Steve Wisniewski moves to center and Stephon Heyer comes in at left guard at 10:19 in the 4th quarter.

      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 2:46 in the 1st quarter, the Raider line has some good protection. You can see them in the pic, below.

      **Pic from Sunday's NFL game

      • Wisniewski gets beat at :47 in the 2nd quarter and the defender puts pressure on Palmer. Palmer throws a pic on the play.
      • At 13:16 in the 4th quarter, Joseph Barksdale comes in for one play, gets beat...and then leaves.
      • Stephon Heyer misses a blitz pick up at 7:23 in the 4th quarter. You can see him in the pick, below. The good thing...Heyer appears to adjust in latter passing plays and picks up the defender in similar passing plays.
