Default ProFootballFocus' take on OL Pass Blocking Efficiency

Signature Stats Snapshot – 2011 Pass Blocking Efficiency
September 30th, 2011 | Author: Khaled Elsayed
...
Before we go on, let’s get the boring math out of the way. Pass Blocking Efficiency equals the total number of pressures (with hurries and hits valued at three quarters the worth of sacks) taken away from number of snaps in pass protection (or cumulative for offensive line), and then divided by the snaps in pass protection. The result? The higher the number the better. Simple enough.
.
Up first let’s have a look at the teams, and see who are the top dogs? Well if you follow us on twitter, it was mentioned that last week the Bills were top of the pile, and after that victory over the Patriots, nothing has changed. They’re still at No.1 with just 12 total pressures given up, including just the one sack (Erik Pears to Tamba Hali). That’s quite a turnaround for a unit that ranked 20th in the same category last year.
.
Another team moving on up are the rarely spoken about Tennessee Titans. Last year they finished 19th, with Michael Roos still failing to live up to the hype he earned in 2008, and David Stewart having a down year (and oh yeah, the interior was ridiculously bad). This year? They’re up in second, making them therefore the best team in a competitive AFC South that follows up with Houston in third, and Jacksonville a surprise in fourth.
.
Now it should be mentioned, and this is something we ourselves are looking into, just how quickly teams get rid of the ball as a determining factor in how a team can prevent pressure from getting to the QB. But credit to all these teams and offensive lines for keeping their quarterback off the ground. A reminder as well, this is just looking at offensive line pressure allowed, and not those that comes from ‘skill position’ players or unblocked rushers. Anyway, here’s the Top 10:
.


Now we get to some individuals. And firstly, let’s take a look at those franchise left tackles. For those of you expecting to see a list headed by Jake Long and Joe Thomas, prepare to be shocked and amazed. Well, maybe not that amazed since I mentioned in the last paragraph that Long has given up eight hits (10 total pressures). In any case, top of the charts is former laughing stock Demetrius Bell. Even if the LT benefits from the Bills’ quick-pass style, it should be noted just how much he has improved since his disastrous 2009.
.
Similarly, Eugene Monroe was walking that “bust” tightrope after giving him up far too much pressure in his first two years. Well he looks to be turning a corner, though we eagerly await the “Freeney Test” he has so often failed. Very encouraging for the future of the Jaguars’ offensive line. The rest of the Top 5 isn’t exactly filled with names you’d expect to see. But here they are:

it's only been 3 games.

but anyways, i think most of the pressures/hurries has been when schaub is under the center. we need to be in shotgun more imo, especially for the steelers game. hopefully kubiak watched the super bowl last year, just start the game with 3-4 wrs set.

Good read. Titans & Jags.... sounds like those teams aren't as weak as we previously thought.

Good to know my eye's arent lying to me. I haven't had to rewind many plays at all where Brown has been the "most obvious" culprit...... he's quietly had a good start to the season.

Shows blend so I may be wrong but I think Lance Zeirlein's NLF OL coach father said we had the best set of of tackles in the NFL.

I also think that we faced two fairly blitz happy defenses in Miami and NO. I've always thought our O line was good, but it's nice to see stats proving it.

Winston, through 3 games, is listed as the 32nd best pass blocking tackle and the 2nd best run blocking tackle. Overall he is listed as the 8th best tackle. He would be listed higher if not for his penalty calls.

Brown - 4th pass blocking, 31 run blocking, 11th best tackle overall

Brisiel - 8th pass blocking, 37th run blocking, 17th best guard overall

Smith - 37th pass blocking, 70th run blocking (out of 72), 65th best guard overall

Myers - 6th pass blocking, 1st run blocking (by large margin), 1st best center overall

In conclusion Wade Smith is clearly the weakest link through 3 games. It's just not as noticeable in the middle.
