San Diego Chargers vs Bears: Breaking Down The O-Line Film

Chargerswhitebackground_medium

The San Diego Chargers fall to the Chicago Bears, 20-31. The Chargers drop to 4-6 on the year and the Bears improve to 7-3.

One thing that we found out from the Bears game was that the Chargers can get it done with the makeshift offensive line.  It might not be as pretty as the original starters...but the Chargers have enough weapons on offense to make the current line work.  That being said, the Chargers need to give some help to Dombrowski during passing downs.  He was beat 7 more times in the Bears game.

Despite the current losing streak, the Chargers are only 2 games out of first place in the AFC West.  They have scored about the same amount of points as the Raiders and given up only 5 points more, all year.

Jeromey Clary ends the day with a 85% assignment grade in run blocking and a +2 dominance score.  He gets beat a couple of times in pass protection, but does a decent job other than those times.  His pass blocking assignment score ends up being a 90% with a -2 dominance score.

Let's take a look at the rest of those grades...

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:

  • Stephen Schilling has a nice drive block when he goes down inside at 11:46 in the 3rd quarter.  Schilling ends the day with a 64% assignment grade in run blocking.
  • Jeromey Clary gets nice movement on his run block at 3:33 in the 2nd quarter.  He drives his defender down field. 
  • Before Scott Mruczkowski leaves the game, he has a nice day blocking.  83% run assignment score and a 98% pass blocking grade.
  • To see how an offensive lineman has done in previous weeks then go, here.

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:

  • At 3:37 in the 2nd quarter, it first looks like the line doesn't block anyone and Rivers has to throw the ball away.  However, San Diego was running a screen play and the Bears had sniffed the play out.  Instead of throwing the ball into danger, Rivers puts it in the dirt.
  • At :33 in the 3rd quarter, Tony Moll and Jeromey Clary pass of defenders well as the Bears attempt a loop stunt.
  • The interior of the line does a decent job pass blocking this week.  That is good for Rivers and the Chargers.  If the makeshift offensive line can keep it up...then San Diego has a chance.
  • As always, the tight ends and backs film grades, are here.
