  • Sean Locklear vs David Diehl

    Here are the stats from PFF:

    Sean Locklear
    542 snaps
    0 sacks allowed
    21 hurries allowed

    David Diehl
    151 snaps
    3 sacks allowed
    8 hurries allowed

    Can someone please explain to me why Locklear was benched? There has to be more to the story than "you can't lose your job due to injury". How about losing your job to a guy playing better than you?

    Locklear allows a pressure every 25-26 snaps while Diehl allows a pressure every 13-14 snaps.

    Here's what Diehl's stats would look like if he had the same amount of snaps as Locklear at this point in the season (mathematical projections of course)

    David Diehl
    542 snaps
    11 sacks allowed
    29 hurries allowed

      BUT DD IS THE STARTER YOU GUYS! WHATEVER HAPPENED TO LOYALTY??

      I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

        I really want to mail this stat in to Coughlin. I just simply can NOT believe they put Diehl back in. He needs to be cut after this year, he is over the hill and about to fall off the cliff. DONE. Thank you for your time here and contributions to our SB runs DD, even though I find it shocking we won them with you starting at LEFT tackle let alone right. I really don't get it. If he has another bad game this week and is the starter after the bye I just don't know what is going on. I am a big Coughlin supporter but it's things like this that shake my faith in his decisions sometimes.

          Its funny because even if we do win some games from here on out, in will be in spite of Diehls awful performance, and not because hes playing well.

          Its like a 1-way street. He plays awful no matter what and win or lose...he still plays awful. Does this move make sense to ANYONE??

            Loyalty of this nature is contributing to a sputtering offense and may even get your franchise QB injured.

              The only thing I can think that makes any sense is that the coaching staff wants to get Diehl some more money since his contract is full of escalators depending on how many games he plays and at what position. I find it hard to believe that someone as great as Coughlin seriously sees Diehl as a better player than Locklear at this present moment. I'm really trying my best to not think Coughlin has a weakness when it comes to offensive line evaluation.

                  These numbers seem to show that Locklear isnt allowing as many sacks even though he is getting beat almost as much?

                  Being a skinny guy I am no aficionado pf Oline play, so I ask. is there some technique to getting bet that allows the QB to better compensate?

                  Is it because Deihl is getting beat deep by the speed rush and out of Elis sight while Locklear is just getting out muscled up front?

                    I think you arguing with a false pretense. Locklear is not giving up more hurries than Diehl is; per snap.

                      I didnt say more, I said almost as much. Meaning fewer, but comparable. Obviously we are dealing with a small sample size for Deihl in this instance but Locklear isnt responsible for a single sack but quite a few hurries.

                      Its more noticeable if you look at The Enigmas projection, which obviously is not guaranteed. At this level of performance Deihl will give up way more sacks but a similar amount of pressures.

                        If you add the prorated sacks+hurries you get 40 for Diehl. Compare that to Locklear's 21 total. That's not similar, that's almost twice as many.

                          Just to clear the air and make sure everyone is on track with the terminology...A pressure can be a sack, hit, or hurry. Sacks, of course, are the ultimate negatives in pressure. That's why they do more damage to a lineman's grade than a hit or hurry because it's a loss of yardage and possibly, a turnover as well.

                          So while Diehl would only allow slightly more HURRIES per snap than Locklear, the amount of total pressure he is allowing is near twice as much as Locklear.

                            That was what I was looking for. Figured I was missing something, as opposed to stumbling on the meaning of life. Just learning to understand the trenches in all their intricacies.

                            Thank you for the clarification.

                              Interesting stats, I'm sure the coaching staff has them, if so then why don't they act. Or are there mitigating circumstances?
