But no way would I put 7 on him. I can see a couple coverage sacks. Like for instance, the back-to-back sacks in the last game. Alex drops back to hit Crabtree on the underneath drag route and the LB mauls him (grabs him and almost knocks him down). By the time Alex starts to look up field he has a DE on his back. To me that would be a 1/2 on the OL and half on coverage sack/scheme.
It would be nice if oldman9er or someone would objectively list out the sacks and where he thinks the fault lies knowing that some are combination reasons. And also note all the one Alex avoided, etc.
And to your last point, totally. Roman was just talking about that a couple weeks ago. Alex is coached to scramble but don't be discouraged to take a sack. Just don't fumble or throw a stupid TO. Alex's recent comments also highlighted this coaching on taking the higher % throws only save for VD, someone he can trust fully and who has 4 of the 5 TD's including one in the EZ on triple coverage. Great throw/catch!
Anyone willing to review oldman9ers play-by-play analysis and assign a real OL assessment of pas protection? We have all the film to back it up as well.
I agree with that. I wouldn't attribute 7 to him either, not even close to that. That means coverage sack is also something they must take into account in order to give the Oline only 5 sacks, which makes sense, and its something I didn't consider in my original post. Thanks for the reminder.
Can we spell subjective? Wow, if they start parsing the type of sack then they need to publish their definitions and give explanations. As faulty as it is I want every sack to be on the line as long as the QB is not outside the hash marks...where there is grounding there are sacks.
Oldman9er is gone and replaced by McGibblets...I'll have to find out where that cartoon comes from...
