    Our pass blocking was 26th in the NFL and run blocking 13th

    17. Tennessee Titans (14th)PB: 26th, RB: 13th, PEN: 9th
    Stud: Despite the new additions, it was Michael Roos (+22.0) who led the team. A good all-around year even if he did give up more hurries than we’re accustomed to seeing from him.
    Dud: To think the Titans let Fernando Velasco walk and replaced him with Robert Turner (-13.1). I get that Velasco wasn’t deemed a scheme fit, but surely you’ve got to have a better option at the spot if you’re going to cut ties.
    Analysis: The Titans went big, they went bold and ultimately they went bad. It took overpaid offseason acquisition Andy Levitre (+12.3) too long to get going as he never justified the price tag. Then the can’t-miss NFL prospect that was Chance Warmack found out that playing in the pros is a whole new world to playing at the collegiate level. Levitre is a good player, but given what this team put into their line, they have to be extremely disappointed with the results.

    The run blocking was actually better than average. Pass blocking was terrible.

    I get the feeling teams didn't realize we couldn't effectively run the ball until like week 6. They all drank the ground and pound kool aid and sold out to stop the the run. Locker was a beneficiary of that. By the time Fitz got back there teams just straight up pinned their ears back and went after him which is partly why CJ got some much room on some of those screens and that one broken play.

    Maybe, but perhaps our O-line just sucked. I know our OL coach did.

    I'm interested in how they come about these rankings. As in what factors do they use for their analysis. PFF is normally a load of crap so I'm taking this lightly. I would like to know where we ranked in RB only when CJ was in the backfield and how we ranked on PB when Locker was in the game etc. There are a lot of factors I'm sure they didn't consider.
