How bad is the pass blocking... really?

Once again, not all pressure is the same - what we didn't see on Sunday was the Titans exposing Levis to a bunch of high leverage passing situations as they used play action, screens, and boots to get it out quickly.

 

Levis under pressure stats:

 

13 drop backs:  4 of 11 for 42 yards with 2 sacks.  Note the NWI 33 yard TD pass had late pressure on the 1st down PA as he was throwing it. 

 

The other pressures? 3 for 10, 9 yards and the 2 sacks.  And remember they were 1/11 on 3rd downs > 1 yard.


I know what you are saying but the chart covers all passes. It covers his league high PA rate too. Tannehill can't boot or rollout, he can't escape when a rusher doesn't buy the fake.. and it shows in drop back passing situations that he can't buy time. 
 

I know a big part of the success was because of the game plan for Levis... and it's a game plan they didn't think RT was capable of running or they would do it more. 
 

No one is saying he's miles ahead of RT in every capacity. Of course he will take some time to understand the straight drop back game fully. But he's not replacing elite straight drop back production either. 
 

Go look at those 3rd downs again. There's really only 3-4 where he could maybe have done something better.

Dillard is your daily reminder that in fact, things CAN always get worse and often do.

If you bitch much more you are going to grow tits.

3-4 3rd down passes or passes as a whole?

3-4 third down passes against atlanta. there was 3 screens, penalties, throws near the sticks, a drop... and then 3-4 passes where he didnt have many options and either gave a guy a chance or would have liked to have a better ball.

 

His weakness right now seems to be sideline throws.

This aged well. But when you get a dumb motherfucker, like a Retard Russ, these are the types of threads you get.

 

Are you serious this obtuse? We lost Hubbard and had 5 linemen go down today against possibly the best line in the league with Heyward in.

..,at one point had our 4th and 5th OT's playing. Thats a stark difference from the RT time.

 

Levis looked like a pro today and made plays to help the line the ex QB never could have pulled off. Dude would have been edging towards another 8 sack, 3 interception and injured blowout.

Steelers are bottom 3 in yards allowed.  Tannehill very likely would have put up similar numbers.

eh.. we'll never know. When RT faced similar pass rushes the last couple years - 1int and a tight game with a chance to win was far from the average outcome.

At some point Carthon has to seriously consider sitting Dillard so he remains healthy enough to cut this offseason.

When he got hurt, the thought of involuntary IR was going through my mind.

Have seen players suffer significant injuries with those actions when another player whips through a leg that is still planted on the ground, no doubt Dillard and hence the Titans salary cap got very lucky today.
