    Primary Job of the OL

    1. Protect the QB/give him time to throw

    2. Move defenders/create holes for the RB's

    So with so many complaints about our current OL, is there some actual stats regarding last years line vs. the lines from the last 6-7 years?
    Because we won 2 SB's in that time so they must've been doing something right.

    This can be answered with:

    1. How many sacks on Eli in 2015 vs. previous years?
    How many hurries etc?

    2. How many yards per carry over the line/how many rushes were with open holes vs. point of contact and yards after?
    How many times do our RB's run up the middle vs. the side?

    SAck numbers against a QB are misleading. There is no context. Was he just taking the sack instead of throwing it away? Was it a 3 second sack or an 8 second sack? Was it a dumb luck strip sack? How many more sacks would there have been if Eli doesnt throw it away? Ect.

    Right it's not a absolute there are too many variables and it's impossible to look all those up.

    Based on the surface though, you would think 2015 OL wasn't nearly as bad as made to sound.
    I agree it needs improvement, but just looking for context.

    IMO it was the play calling in 2015 that kept the sack totals down not the line. Once Eli was forced to hold the ball a bit longer he was harassed and took some BIG hits last year.

    Football isnt a stats sport. It never has been.

    Context vs stats are everything in this game. What does the eye test show you? To me it says we have a young, inexperienced OL that shows flashes of invididual talent but hasn't learned how to play like a unit just yet. They aren't terrible but they certainly aren't good either. We still need more depth, talent and snaps together before we can we a championship. Which goes for our team as a whole.
