Oakland Raiders vs Jets: Breaking Down The O-Line Tape

Oakland-raiders-helmet_medium

Week 3

The Oakland Raiders took on the New York Jets last Sunday and established themselves as a contender for the AFC West crown.  The most impressive thing in the game was the consistency the offense had.   The balance, the weapons, the play of the quarterback, and the play calling that kept the Jets on their heels most of the game.

This week Samson Satele is the offensive lineman that has taken the biggest strides.  Satele recorded an 84% on his assignment grade and a +1 power score.  He blocked much better at the 2nd level and demonstrated a nice motor and drive when blocking.

Let's look at those offensive line grades...

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:

  • Samson Satele had a nice block and then some hustle to the 2nd level at 11:33 in the 2nd quarter.  Satele really turned a corner in this game.  In past game he had problems at the second level.  He didn't make all the 2nd level blocks this game but he did make more of them which kept is assignment percentage up.  If he keeps this level of play up he has good potential. 
  • At 12:24 in the 1st quarter just about every offensive lineman missed their block.  That doesn't happen very often.  Actually what tends to happen more often on teams is that only one misses his block on a given play and that ruins the entire play.
  • Cooper Carlisle and Samson Satele let a defender through almost untouched on a 4th and one.  A fullback did veer back and kick the defender out but the disruption caused the play to not make the yard that was needed.
  • Cooper Carlisle puts in a little extra effort at 11:33 in the 3rd quarter to put his man on the ground.  I love seeing offensive lineman flat-back defenders.
  • Khalif Barnes has gotten steadily better every game and to this point might be the most well rounded offensive lineman on the Raiders team.  This week he scores a 92% assignment grade in pass blocking with a +4 power score.
  •   PLAY OF THE DAY:  The flow of the play go to the right but the Raiders are running a reverse to the left.  Samson Satele blocks right...then bends back into the 2nd level and heads left to get a blindside block on a defender.  You have to see it!  :47 in the 3rd quarter. 
  • At :33 in the 3rd quarter the Raiders on in the Red zone and Jared Veldeer has a great 2nd level block and Stephen Wisniewski reaches a defender to his left to get Oakland down to the 1 yard 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:

  • At this point in the season the Raiders have kept more blockers in for pass protection than any other AFC West team.  They have made sure their quarterback stays upright...and it has paid off in a big way.
  • The Raiders line, all of them, do a nice job in the 2:00 drill before half.  Nice pass protection and communication.
  • Oakland's line gets fooled by the Jets zone blitz and stunts at 10:26 in the 3rd quarter.  Lots of pressure on the quarterback.
  • Lots of time to throw at 7:02 in the 3rd quarter.  The Raiders keep a lot of blockers in for protection...but still did a nice job.
  • Stephen Wisniewski puts a pass rusher on the ground at 2:42 in the 4th quarter.
  • If you would like to see how the O-Line has performed in previous games then go, here.
