Flimbreakdownbanner-300x134_medium

Week 13

The Kansas City Chiefs pick up a road win against the Chicago Bears, 10-3. The Chiefs move to 5-7 on the season and the Bears drop to 7-5.

This week Ryan Lilja returns and records an 84% run assignment grade with a +1 power score. This is the first game, all year, that Lilja has recorded a dominance score above zero. He also ended the day with a 96% passing assignment grade.

I liked how the lineman came out at the very start of the game...there was energy, attitude, and some effort. All the ingredients of a team, and an offensive line, that has some pride in how they perform every week. A week ago, the Bears played the Oakland Raiders and the grading results for their lineman was: LT 81% -1, LG 77% -1, C 79 +1, RG 77 -1, RT 82% +0. How did the Chiefs do compared to Chicago?

Let's take a look at the grades for the Chiefs...

Team Run Blocking
Power Blocking
Power Blocking Score
2nd Level Blocks
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 successes 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 14:58 in the 1st quarter, the line has a nice surge off the ball. The runner doesn't get any yards due to a run blitz. But, I really like the movement the Chiefs were getting. Much better than the past 3 weeks.
  • Ryan Lilja has a nice kick out block on a pull at 5:24 in the 1st quarter.
  • If you would like to see how often the Chiefs ran at every line position how how well they did during the Steelers game, then go here.
  • At 2:20 in the 2nd quarter, Barry Richardson gets beat on a run play and the defender make the tackle. You can see him in the pic, below. Unfortunately, McClain is their to pic up the defender, but misses also.

***From Chiefs game on CBS

  • Both Brandon Albert and Barry Richardson get beat on a run play and the back is tackled in the backfield.
  • Brandon Albert and Ryan Lilja drive a defender inside at 9:04 in the 4th quarter. Its nice to see the Chiefs getting some movement on their blocks. You can see them in the pic, below. Wiegmann is at the bottom right of the screen with Lilja just on the other side of him. That is where they drove their defender.

  • If you would like to see just where the Chiefs ran the ball and which receivers they targeted in each zone...then go here.
  • At 11:44 in the 4th quarter, Steve Maneri comes in as a extra offensive tackle and lines up on the right side of the formation just outside of Barry Richardson.
  • 14:54 in the 4th quarter, Branden Albert and Ryan Lilja drive a defender 5 yards down field. You can see them in the pic, below. They are at the bottom left of the screen. Unfortunately, Wiegmann's defender had beaten him into the backfield and the Chief's running back was tackled before he could take advantage of the double team block by Albert and Lilja.

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?
