20. Atlanta Falcons (12th)

PB = 24th, RB = 21st and PEN = 1st

Part of why Matt Ryan is having an MVP year is that he’s handling pressure and overcoming a line that isn’t making running the ball all that viable. For years now the Falcons have been a team that have beat up on weaker fronts, but if their latest effort against New Orleans is anything to go by, even those days are behind them. But hey, they rarely give up penalties.

These are rankings from a few weeks ago. Can't imagine they haven't gone down even further.

I think we have possibly the single weakest OL in the NFL; one that was masked eariler in the season and in recent games the mask has been ripped off.

The single most difficult aspect of being a pocket passing QB is interior preseure in your face and Matt Ryan gets more of this than possibly any other QB in the NFL leaving him with zero time for mid range routes to develop.

What's even more concerning is that the coaching staff has said nothing about it.

Eli Manning had the worst offensive line in 2011 .. He helped his team to a Super Bowl

I didn't know Matt Ryan was Eli Manning.

And the Giants did NOT have the worst offensive line and it wasn't even close. I don't know where you get the sh*t you say from.

Eli's line was bad through the year last year, and then started to gel on their playoff run. I don't have the same faith in ours.

Matt has been much better this year of making things out of nothing. Let's hope he can do what Eli did last season.

As bad as our line is, and it's total garbage, I don't think anyone can compare to how bad Philly's and Chicago's are.

The worst OL last season was the Bears, and the Giants struggled during the regular season last year with that OL, did they not? What QBs have ever had success with constant pressure coming from the middle of their protection?

and the playoffs

SANTA CLARA – The beating the 49ers gave Eli Manning last Jan. 22 was written all over the quarterback's once-white jersey.

The 49ers hit him 18 times, including six sacks, the most Manning had absorbed in any game last season. By the end of the NFC Championship Game, grime speckled his face, his left shoulder was a dingy gray, and his left wristband and arm were caked in Candlestick Park mud.

pass protection rankings by position:

LT Baker: 21st out of 33 qualifying

LG Blalock: 21st out of 26 qualifying

OC McClure: 21st out of 31 qualifying

RG Konz: not enough snaps to qualify

RT Clabo: 10th out of 30 qualifying

run blocking rankings by position:

LT Baker: 26th out of 33 qualifying

LG Blalock: 15th out of 26 qualifying

OC McClure: 17th out of 31 qualifying

RT Clabo: 10th out of 30 qualifying

Not awful but definitely below average. Konz grades out the weakest piece of the OL though. Grades in the red for both pass blocking and run blocking and only other one to do so is Blalock.

Good to see Clabo has returned to form. Pretty concerning to see Blalock with those numbers.
