I've been looking at our OT's, and trying to figure out if we can be better than last year. FWIW, this is one way to look at it but, not the only way. I included penalties as well.
Last year, Martin (RT & LT) gave up 6 sacks, 4 hits, and 47 pressures, with 5 penalties, and 0 accepted.
Long gave up 4 sacks, 7 hits, and 10 pressures, with 7 penalties,and 4 accepted.
Garner gave up 2 sacks, 0 hits, and 11 pressures, with 3 penalties, and 0 accepted.
The combined team total for OT's was giving up 12 sacks, 11 hits, 68 pressures, with 15 penalties, and 4 accepted.
Enter Clabo who gave up 5 sacks, 7 hits, and 23 pressures, with 4 penalties, and 1 accepted, which I subtract.
Based on last year's protection. Martin would have to give up 7 sacks, 4 hits, and 45 pressures, with 11 penalties, and 3 accepted, for the team's OT's to be the same.
Now, some believe that LT is much more important, while others see the best pass rushers going against the RT in today's day and age. I made it simple and combined the two, I'm sure many will disagree with this but, I found it interesting.
