Seahawks Offensive Line Grades Regular Season Game 2011-3
Seahawks OL Grades
1) James Carpenter (A)
Last week B-
His pass blocking was definitely better than it has been. He had a couple nice cut blocks in the passing game including one to clear a passing lane for a WR screen . Four times he held his pass block for 4 seconds or more including getting a pancake on one of them. James was able to notice and pick up the blitz which is something he has been struggling with. In the running game he showed how strong he is pushing Darnell Dockett out of one play and pancaking him another. At one point he had a nice cut block to open a running lane and earlier in the game he showed an ability to get to the second level and set the edge.
He still has plays where he is missing assignments but these are mistakes you expect from a rookie and his awareness is improving. A couple of these led to the quarterback being pressured. Carpenter also missed on a couple cut block attempts.
2) Max Unger and John Moffitt (B-)
Last week; Max C and John D+
Max was showing his strength on a couple plays where he pushed the defender out of the play. He showed agility getting to the second level and blocking. Unger did a nice job selling the play action and had an excellent cut block that saved a sack. Max and John worked with Paul McQuinstan sliding protection to pick up the blitz. Moffitt had three pancakes including one on Darnell Dockett. He was able to pass block one on one for 4+ seconds during a play. In the running game he showed his power clearing the defensive end out of the running lane. Later in the game he cleared a lane for the wide receiver to run through on a screen pass.
Unger got his quarterback hit, had a false start, a bad snap that could have cost the team the game and had trouble sealing a running lane. Moffitt had some trouble in pass pro getting his quarterback hit once and sacked another. On the sack he was reaching out for the block instead of shuffling his feet to stay between QB and pass rusher. He missed a couple run blocks including a cut block at the point of attack. John made a mental mistake and blocked the wrong defender at one point.
4) Paul McQuinstan (C)
He is replacing Robert Gallery until he can come back from injury and was not graded last week.
5) Lemuel Jeanpierre (C-)
Last week C-
Lemuel only played on special teams and as a unit they were unimpressive.
On a kick return he was about to block a member of the coverage team but instead of lowering his shoulders and hitting the guy he stood up and let the Cardinal’s player blow him up. He needs to be more aggressive then that if he wants to stay on this team for any length of time.
6) Russell Okung (D)
Last week C-
On three plays he did an outstanding job in pass protection. He did a good job selling the play action and was playing a bit nasty pushing people around after the play.
Russell was pushed down the line which closed off the running lane. On one running play he blocked a player who was already being blocked instead of blocking the guy who was unblocked. He missed a block or got beat multiple times including giving up a sack. He was part of a line that couldn’t pick up a first down in crunch time to close out the game. Notice in the picture Okung was beat on the final play as well.
