Well, sorry about the late article this week. Maybe some of you are still interested the offensive line breakdown from last week's game.

In a few of these articles throughout the season, it has been pointed out that Steve Wisniewski was having some problems. This week, I want to point out, because that is what I try and do, that Wisniewski appears to be getting better.

This week he ends the day with an 85% and +1 run assignment grade along with an 86% and -1 pass assignment grade. That is much more consistent than Steve was being at the beginning of the year. Congratulations to Wisniewski...it appears your hard work is starting to pay off.

The tight ends allowed 2 sacks this week. 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 2:09 in the 1st quarter, Steve Wisniewski and Jared Veldeer get nice movement on a double team run block. You can see them in the pic, below. They are just starting to move the defender down field and Cooper Carlisle has pulled and is just engaging the defender. Carlisle ended the day with a +1 pull blocking score and a +2 2nd level score.

  • At :08 in the 2nd quarter, Steve Wisniewski has a nice down block. You can barely see him in the pic, below. He is in the middle of the screen engaged with the defender he is driving. You can also see the secondary person that got away from the receivers block (the receiver chasing)...he make the tackle.

  • At 4:07 in the 4th quarter, Wisniewski and Samson Satele have a nice double team combo block. They move the defender off the line of scrimmage.

      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 lot of combo blocks on Sue this week in pass protection by the Raiders. That leaves Wisniewski one-on-one with a defender many times. Earlier in the year we might have seen him get beat repeatedly because of being left alone a lot...but not this week. He only gets beat 2 times in the game.
      • Wisniewski does get beat at :59 in the 1st quarter. You can see him in the pick, below.

        • At 1:09 in the 2nd quarter quarter, Wisniewski picked up a looping line stunt. It sounds like I'm calling his name a lot. And I guess I am. But he showed me that he is getting better...so I'm going to recognize that effort.
