I do like WalterFootball. I think the writers there are very knowledgeable. That said, I think they're overly concerned with Peat. I think most of us were worried about Peat before the season last year but it looked to me that he not only held his own, he excelled at the guard position.

Football Outsiders ranked offensive lines in different ways. They not only measured how successful a team is running the ball but also uses different metrics to try differentiate between how much of that success was due to the RB and how much of it was due to the offensive line.

They ranked the Saints #1 in Adjusted Line Yards which gives an offensive line 100% credit for gains of 0-4 yards, 50% credit for gains between 5-10 yards and 0% credit for gains of 11 yards or more and 120% credit for losses. And then adjusts all that for every others team average against the same RB.

The Saints ranked 9th in Power Success which measures a team's success on 3rd or 4th down and 2 yards or less to go. Also goal line runs of 2 yards or less.

The Saints ranked #2 in "Stuffed" rank which measured the percentage of runs that were stopped in the backfield.

The Saints ranked #19 in "Second Level Runs" in which the RB gains between 5-10 yards. And #10 in Open Field Carries, in which the RB gains 11 or more yards.

Their pass blocking metrics are much simpler. They simply divide the number of sacks given up into the number of pass attempts to determine sack rate. The Saints ranked #5.

Given how high the Saints ranked last season with Peat in the lineup, he must've been pretty solid.

Agree they are knowledgeable and have access, but their op-eds are very biased to certain teams and they seemed ill-informed when it comes to the Saints...

NFL Scheduling Formula, since 2002

Each NFL team plays 16 games as follows:

  • Home and away against its three division opponents (six games).

  • Four (4) IntraConference, non-division games, rotating three-year cycle - Four (4) games

  • Four (4) InterConference, non-division, non-conference games, rotating three-year cycle - Four (4) games

  • Two (2) IntraConference games based on the previous year’s standings - Two (2) games, matching first-place teams vs first-place teamss in the two same-conference divisions that the team is not scheduled to play that season based on earlier stipulated rotation. Second-place, Third-place, and Fourth-place teams in a conference are matches are styled in same way.*

* In 2010 adjustment was added to pairings so AFC West and NFC West Divisions wouldn't be req'd to make two West Coast trips when other teams in their division had none.
