If you wanna make it a litte more complex you have all sorts of mixes of the two. When you start involving RBs and chip blocks, passing defenders down the line, cross blocking in pass pro and such, well then it gets hard pretty quick

I used to run the "3 jet" protection, we called it ABC because those were the gaps we slid to with a Larry or Ringo tag to know what side to slid to. We had man blocking on the backside, just like the Saints, if they had a 6th rusher the RB would have to pick him up, working to the backside or the QB could send the RB on a route and be responsible for that passrusher himself.
At times it will happen during games that the QB (or C, depending who makes the protection calls) will call a protection going the wrong way just because you get caught up in it all, I would not be surprised if that was what happened here and that stuff will get cleaned up. Usually you enable the other O-line players to make a correcting call if a bad one is made, or if they see a potential blitzer creeping towards the LOS that the QB or center havn't seen.

Re: Analysis of sacks on Winston week 1.

It's easy to understand how blocking assignments can be missed. Especially when the defense is doing their best to disguise what they are bringing. I have heard more times than I can count how what looks to be a bad play by one player to the untrained eye actually falls on the shoulders of another as seen by someone that knows what they are seeing.

I don't have the patience to knit. Give me a system that needs designed and programmed and I'd dive right into it. Been retired now for seven years and finally got a chance to design an accounting system for my wife's side business. That's more my speed.

Re: Analysis of sacks on Winston week 1.

Article was great except they didn't time how long Jameis held the ball.
First two = from the video provided in the article - were (timed by my stopwatch on the iphone) were at or longer than 4 seconds. Admittedly, my timing could be off. Anyone want to check it? The second two sacks were definately blocking errors. I'm just glad they got it right the last quarter.
