    Not surprised at all with SF being #1 since they have three 1st RDs on that line.

    See what I mean by different approaches.
    PFF relies on one or two guys watching the plays to grade each lineman (and all players.) These individuals have to watch several games a week (not just our game), they have to watch a lot of different players at the same time, and they use personal judgments.

    Here are a couple of different rankings by a couple of sites that base their result stritcly on stats. This approach takes out the human "errors".

    This one has our O-line as number one overall in efficiency:

    This one has us at #6 in run blocking and #4 in pass protection:

    Notice how the Niners O-line is ranked way down in pass protection at #29?

    Winston is part of the # 2, still wish we would have kept him.

    Here's yet another approach to tank the offensive line.

    CHFF has the Offensive Hog Index to measure the performance of the O-line

    The Texans came in third, behind the Pats and the Giants:

    On the defensive side of the line, we also came in third.
    And the Dolphins, a team I had mentioned previously as having the D-line as their strength, came in first.

    Overall, the Texans was ranked first in the Power Ranking, by a good margin over the next four teams: Packers, Giants, Niners, and Falcons.
