Oakland Raiders vs. Seattle Seahawks: Breaking Down O-Line Film


The Oakland Raiders took on the Seattle Seahawks this past Friday evening.  And even though Oakland lost the insignificant preseason game they did have improvement along the offensive line.

Note: This post comes to us compliments of Bewsaf.

In this post, you will find a film breakdown of every offensive play in the first half (we will break down the entire game when the regular season starts).  After breaking the film down, you will find grades and notes that might help you understand what you might have missed in the trenches while the play was going on.

In the Seahawks game khalif Barnes has a 75% pass blocking grade but scores a +2 in dominance blocks.  A couple of times, three actually, Barnes uses a good punch to control the pass rusher and keep him off balance.

Last week the offensive line had problems.  This week the Raiders front 5 had good games, generally speaking.  Daniel Loper subs in for Stephen Wisniewski and on his very first run play he puts a defender on the ground.

Lets look at those offensive line grades for the first half only....

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:

  • I only graded the first half of the preseason.  So Stephan Heyer, Daniel Loper, Alex Parsons, Bruce Campbell, and Joseph Barksdale were not graded on very many reps.
  • 3rd down and 4 on the opponents 30 yard line and Khalif Barnes gets a penalty.  Need more focus Khalif.
  • At 2:39 in the 1st quarter Samson Satele trips on his way to block the linebacker on the second level.  Many times it only takes one missed block to make a play go from a 1 yard gain to a 15 yard gain.
  • At 1:52 left in the 2nd quarter Daniel Loper is now in replacing Stephen Wisniewski.  Loper pulls left, turns into the hole and puts the linebacker on his butt.  Nice domination block.
  • Raiders block better this week against the Seahawks.  They just need to continue to improve and take that blocking momentum into the regular season.
  • Jared Valdeer, Daniel Loper,  and Khalif Barnes are the only Raider lineman that end up with a 1+ power score this week.  Although Stephen Wisniewski did have a nice domination block during the game he also was dominated once...which ends up being a +0 power score for him.

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:

  • I only graded the first half of the preseason.  So Stephan Heyer, Daniel Loper, Alex Parsons, Bruce Campbell, and Joseph Barksdale were not graded on very many reps.
  • Oakland uses a few more slide protections this week.
  • With 8:40 left in the 2nd khalif Barnes has a nice punch that staggers the pass rusher.  Nice to see an offensive lineman taking control of the pass rusher instead of the other way around.
  • Jared Veldeer has a little trouble with a blitzing Atari Bigby on a 3rrd and 4. 
  • Alex Parsons replaces Samson Satele in the and misses a defensive line loop stunt at 1:12 left in the 2nd quarter. 
  • Passing grades for the starters were good.  Valdeer does give up a few pressures (3) but ends up doing his job in the end (not letting the defender get to the QB).
