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

Chargerswhitebackground_medium

The San Diego Chargers fall to the Denver Broncos in overtime, 13-16. The Chargers drop to 4-7 on the year and the Broncos improve to 6-5.

If is hard to have continuity on a team when you have 3 of your starting 5 offensive lineman out of the game. But players like Tony Moll, Stephen Schilling, and Brandyn Dombrowski appear to be picking up the slack. At least....as best they can.

Tony Moll ends the game with a 80% assignment grade and a +0 dominance score in run blocking. In the passing game, Tony records a 87% assignment grade with a -3 dominance score. Those number aren't to bad considering he is a fill in that hasn't had time to gel with the other players on the line.

Randy McMichael has an off game in run blocking but has demonstrated that he is a real good blocker in pass protection. He ends the game with a +2 power score in that area, which is rare. As always, the tight ends and backs film grades, are here.

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

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:

  • At 13:44 in the 1st quarter, Brandyn Dombrowski has a nice block. He drives his man outside as the back cuts it into the hole. He is in the pick, below.

  • At 14:59 in the 2nd quarter, both Jeromey Clary and Tony Moll pull around the right side of the formation and have good blocks in space. You can see them in the pic, below. They are at the top of the screen, just before engaging with defenders.

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 1:17 in the 1st quarter, Tony Moll misses a looping linebacker in pass protection.
  • Brandyn Dombrowski was getting bull rushed a lot in the Denver game. He ends the day with a -7 dominance score...not a good score.
  • At 11:45 in the 1st quarter, Jeromey Clary gets beat on a spin move. He later gets beat by the spin move again, for a sack at 6:19 in the 4th quarter. You can see the pic, below. The defender is just coming out of his spin move and going to make his way to the quarterback, and the sack.
