Pacstud's O-Line Analysis: Chiefs I

Chargers Regular Season Week 1

Opponent:  Kansas City Chiefs

 

Date:  September 13, 2010

 

Drive 1

 

1.  1-10; -28

Ace H-Flanker

25 Base (26 Power fake)

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

NEW PLAY:  We block it almost exactly like 26 Power, with the guard pulling and everything.  However, our C and RG double the NT, and as they work to the Will they try to seal to the right (if it were 26 Power they would seal to the left).  The backside LT washes the 4i, ideally past the hole. On the right side, the RT has a solo assignment on the 5.  The H takes the place of the FB and handles the Sam.  If you are wondering why it’s not just 26 Power with a cutback, watch the backfield action.

 

 25base26powerfakeaceh-flanker_medium

 

On this first effort, the Will steps towards the double team (to scrape towards 26 Power) but reads the backfield action and stays home.  Dombo gets a good down block and the C/RG double team gets movement.  Good gain.

 

2.  2-6; -32

Pro Lt. Strong

727 PA Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Off of the 27 Power fake, I don’t know if the pulling RG or TDEK needs to pick up the DE (Dorsey) that Dombo chipped. 

 

3.  3-6; -32

22 Gun Rt.

50 Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Dombo gets away with a pretty savvy hold.  Hali gets away with a penalty against Clary.

 

4.  1-10; -47

Blue Twins Lt.

61 Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Very good protection, Dombo does very well.

 

5.  1-10; 42

Pro Wing Rt. Twins Lt. SB

26 Base

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

NEW PLAY:  The double from Hardwick and Vasquez doesn’t get to the Will, but it doesn’t need to as the Will runs himself out of the play.  Gates and Wilson both do well.

6.  2-3; 35

Pro Wing Rt.

24 Iso

LT-2; LG-1; C-2; RG-2; RT-1.5

 

Hester has a nice hit, but can’t stay on.  His technique still looks better.  Dielman can’t stay on.  Clary gets squeezed into the hole.

 

7.  1-10; 31

Ace H-Flanker

70 Pro Gap

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Perfect gap protection.

 

8.  2-8; 29

Ace Up Tight

26 Power

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-1.5

 

Right before the snap, watch Gates point to the backside OLB, his assignment who he can’t get.  Dielman pulls and makes a nice block.  Clary gets rolled up.  Unblocked backside GMP.

 

9.  3-13; 34

31 Gun Rt.

60 Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-1.5; RT-2

 

Left side to center does very well.  Clary does very well.  Vasquez is a tad slow on his switch of Hali.

 

Drive 2

 

10.  1-10; -40

Pro Rt. Strong

70 Pro Max

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Easy Protection.

 

11.  2-10; -40

Y-Trips Bunch Rt. Open Lt. SB

26 Base

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-1; RT-2

 

NEW PLAY:  Vasquez can’t reach the scraping LB, who eventually makes the play after a long gain.

12.  3-2; 48

Y-Trips Bunch Lt. Gun Rt. H-On

70 Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Very good all around.

 

13.  1-10; 45

Ace H-Flanker

29 Toss Stretch

LT-2; LG-1; C-1; RG-2; RT-2

 

The double from Dielman and Hardwick gets split, as Hardwick can’t stay on and Dielman leaves too soon and GMP.

 

14.  2-8; 43

Blue Twins Rt.

60 Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Hester makes a nice blitz pick up.  Well blocked.

 

15.  3-4; 39

Blue Twins Rt.

60 Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Very good from Dombo.

 

16.  1-G; 5

Pro Rt. Y-Up

70 Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

81 gets away with a nice hold, Rivers has all day to throw.

 

17.  2-G; 5

Pro Wing Rt.

24 Base (25 Iso fake)

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-1.5; RT-.5

 

NEW PLAY: We run Iso to the left side with the design to hit right side under the Y block and outside the RT’s seal.  Clary can’t get Jackson sealed and Vasquez gets to the Mike but can’t stay on all the way.

Very good protection, again.  Touchdown.

 

Drive 3

 

19.  1-10; -20

Y-Trips Rt. H-Wing Open Lt. SB

26 Base

LT-2; LG-1; C-2; RG-1; RT-2

 

Dielman gets shed.  Vasquez can’t come off and get the LB.  The KC D-line is holding, and holding well.  With the new Umpire position, this will only get worse.

 

20.  2-8; -22

Blue Twins Lt.

61 Pro

LT-2; LG-1; C-1; RG-2; RT-2

 

Dielman gets blown back.  This leads to Hardwick tripping over the right leg of Dielman.  Sproles was WAO.

 

21.  3-19; -11

22 SB (under center)

20 Draw

LT-.5; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Dombo gets shed and his GMP.  Hardwick gets held badly.

 

Drive 4

 

22.  1-10; -25

Pro Wing Rt.

26 Base (25 Iso fake)

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-1

 

Vasquez does extremely well on this play.  Clary gets his block sealed, but gives up separation and his GMP.

 

23.  2-7; -28

Pro Twins Lt.

FB Screen Lt.

LT-2; LG-1; C-1; RG-2; RT-2

 

Dielman has a good release, but can’t reach DJ and his GMP.  Hardwick has a slow release and also can’t reach anyone.  Was DJ his man?  It looks like possibly Dielman tried to pick him up as "first to show", even though he may not have been his assignment.

 

24.  3-4; -31

13 Gun Lt.

61 Pro

LT-2; LG-2; C-0; RG-2; RT-2

 

Harwick gets beat.

Very well blocked.  Vasquez’s GMP, but he blocked him 10 yards downfield.

 

Drive 6

Norv does something cool here (I think) and comes right back to the same play TDEK fumbled on.  Dielman gets shed and his GMP.  Hardwick does very well.  Wilson can’t stay on the Mike and his GMP.

 

27.  2-8; -24

Pro Rt. Weak Y-Up

RB Screen Lt.

LT-2; LG-1; C-1; RG-1.5; RT-2

 

Dielman and Hardwick both have poor releases, while Vasquez doesn’t release at all?  Rivers makes a horrible throw on top of all that.

 

28.  3-8; -24

Blue Twins Lt.

61 Pro

LT-1; LG-2; C-1.5; RG-0; RT-1.5

 

This is why "stats" are stupid.  The sack is going to be hung on Clary, even though it is clearly on Vasquez who gets DROVE.  Wilson chips, almost too hard, and this leads to Dombo losing his man.  Dielman does a great job helping Dombo.  Hardwick does fine but needs to keep playing.

 

Drive 7

 

29.  1-10; -28

Ace H-Flanker

25 Base (26 Power fake)

LT-1; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-1

 

Jackson and Dorsey continue their good performance and both are able to get separation from the tackles. 

 

30.  2-7; -31

Ace Up Tight

29 Sweep (GT)

LT-2; LG-2; C-1; RG-1.5; RT-2

 

Hardwick gets held blatantly here.  The double team he has with Vasquez is good, but since Hardwick is held and can’t get off, his GMP.  I’d also like TDEK to see the lane OUTSIDE of Dielman’s block.

 

31.  3-4; -34

22 Gun Lt.

26 Power

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-2

 

Dielman has a very nice block.  All five lineman execute their blocks.  TDEK needs to stay behind Dielman here, and he would have a very nice play.

 

38.  2-8; 40

Pro Lt. Gun Rt. Strong

WR Screen Rt.

LT-2; LG-2; C-2; RG-2; RT-1

 

Clary gets a piece of the DB, but it doesn’t matter as Vrabel dissects and blows up the play.  I don’t like this call, as we don’t run WR screens, and I don’t like "dabbling" with plays.  Move on.

 

39.  3-4; 36

22 Gun Lt.

Dombo falls, commits a smart hold.

 

Drive 10

 

40.  1-10; -34

Ace Twins Rt. H-Flanker

26 Power

LT-2; LG-2; C-1; RG-1; RT-1.5

 

Clary gets shed towards end.  Hardwick falls, and the double team he has with Vasquez is unable to get the LB.  This also causes the NT to split the double.

Ace H-Flanker

Hardwick gives up separation and gets no push (although it is a 1 on 1 with a NT).  Dielman falls off the LB.

Ace H-Flanker

26 Power

LT-2; LG-1; C-2; RG-2; RT-1.5

 

The double of Hardwick and Vasquez do a great job moving the NT.  They don’t get the backside LB, but he takes himself out of the play.  Clary needs to stay on.  Jackson has done a great job this whole game of getting separation.  Dielman can’t square up the LB.

Dombo gets nothing and his GMP.  Gates can’t get the BS LB (Vrabel).  Dielman and Vasquez both get pancakes.

The double from Hardwick and Vasquez is good enough, but they don’t get the LB (by design??? Counting on him to overplay 26 Power?).  Dielman cuts up a gap late.

By alignment, this is a good play call (as was the famous Raven debacle of ’09).  Hardwick gets beat and Gates misses Vrabel…dooming this play.  Dombo’s block was proper for the play design.
