    Vikings' Offensive Line

    The folks at footballoutsiders.com did an interesting analysis on the offensive lines across the NFL.

    Here are a few tidbits about the Vikings taken from this part of their site.
    They also explain how they did the calculations.
    I just highlighted a few point, lot more there for those that are interested.
    Interesting take.

    ...This second table lists each team's Adjusted Line Yards in each direction listed in official NFL play-by-play, along with rank among the 32 teams. Only five directions are listed because research so far shows no statistically significant difference between how well a team performs on runs listed middle, left guard, and right guard...




    LEFT END

    LEFT TACKLE


    MID/GUARD




    RIGHT TACKLE



    RIGHT END
    MIN


    2.80 4



    4.19 17






    2.89 1








    4.17 18







    4.51 24
    (first @ adjusted line yds and second is rank)


    ...The third table lists how often each team runs in each direction. These runs are from the perspective of the OFFENSE, so a run listed as LEFT TACKLE is actually at the RIGHT defensive end. Numbers may not add up to 100% due to carries listed without direction...
    RB Carries LEFT END

    LEFTTACKLE

    MID/GUARD

    RIGHT TACKLE


    RIGHT END

    16%




    13%







    47%

    jammed it up the middle a lot and still led the NFL in rushing.

    Very interesting.
    Truth be told I really like that site but don't visit it much anymore.


    Damn PPO keeping me away from stuff like that.
