The 49ers offensive line is on a roll
08. november 2018 kl. 05:51
The San Francisco 49ers have a lot of issues right now San Francisco 49ers Hats , but there are some positives to take away from what is looking like a potential lost season. Most notably, the offensive line is starting to come together. There are still mistakes to clean up, but it’s hard not to like where this unit is headed.Pro Football Focus released their weekly offensive line rankings heading into Week 6, and they rank the 49ers No. 5 overall. PFF focused on Mike McGlinchey in this week’s comments, which makes sense. He has allowed only three hurries the past two weeks, and is the top ranked run-blocking tackle in the league (total, not just rookies). He’s on pace to earn a spot on the NFL’s all-rookie team, and is putting together a strong season regardless of rookie status.McGlinchey aside, the line as a whole has been doing strong work in run blocking, and is improving in pass blocking. ESPN’s NFL matchup offered up this stat, showing teams ranked based on how many rushing yards they accumulate before first contact with the defense. The 49ers rank fourth in total yards and sixth in yards per rush before first contact.Pro Football Focus offered another take on it, specific to Matt Breida. According to PFF, Breida has gained 93.8 percent of his 369 rushing yards on carries he’s been first contacted 2+ yards beyond the LOS. That’s not to entirely take away from what Breida has done. Per ESPN’s NFL Matchup, he ranks ninth in the league in yards per carry after first contact. That would suggest Breida is playing behind a strong run-blocking offensive line, but he is also proving elusive in the open field.The pass blocking had its share of issues earlier in the season, but the unit seems to be coming together the past couple weeks. Pro Football Focus ranks the 49ers offensive line No. 23 in pass blocking efficiency. However, if we narrow that to Weeks 3-5, they rank No. 10 overall.The 49ers have a lot of work to do with Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined, but it is a plus seeing the offensive line starting to gel. It won’t fix all of the woes the 49ers currently face, but it’s a silver lining in an ugly season.If you’re looking for a fun afternoon distraction San Francisco 49ers Hoodie , click on this tweet to see a thread of fun blocking from Laken Tomlinson and George Kittle.Golden Nuggets: Wake Me Up When Monday Comes Around Good morning folks, unfortunately, that time of the season is upon us when we’ve got our first Sunday of football sans 49ers. Like many of you fine people, I’ve put off many Sunday projects over the past several weeks, and finally, the day has come where I have no legitimate excuse to avoid doing them. I’d love to tell you about the wonderful* slate of games scheduled for tomorrow, but, frankly, I don’t know what they are. I’ve got stuff to build, and my fantasy football season is akin to a plastic bag floating aimlessly in the wind until week 8 when Le’Veon Bell returns. The 49ers finished their week of practice yesterday, and the injury report, while shorter than it had appeared earlier in the week, remains saturated with offensive linemen, and in a new development, wide receivers. Linemen Joe Staley, Weston Richburg, and Mike Person remain questionable to play on Monday after the trio were all on a limited basis on Saturday’s practice. However, the WR group is showing up all over the injured list - Dante Pettis remains out, Trent Taylor has missed every practice this week and is optimistically considered doubtful, and Pierre Garcon is listed as questionable. Fortunately Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , Marquise Goodwin has since returned as a full participant and is expected to be available for Monday, after a murky several weeks suffering with a deep thigh bruise.In other news, Chris Biderman, now of the Sac Bee, has officially jumped the shark. Ladies and/or gentlemen, we’ve got the first technical 2019 offseason preview that I’ve read so far this year. I’m not talking about the “wAy ToO eArLy 2o19 MoCk!” that gets published 45 minutes after the first round of the draft ends, either, folks. Biderman has thrown in the towel, and he’s already preparing for free agency & mock draft season. I know things look bad now, but a 12-4 season finish is a mere 11 game winning streak away.
