Default OFFICIAL Branden Albert vs Ryan Clady thread

The Chiefs drafted a franchise left tackle this year. So did the Broncos.

By the end of the year one of them will clearly be the better player. Albert has the challenge of keeping Breaky Frayle's limbs unmangled, while Clady will attempt to keep defenders away from Jay "diabeetus" Cutler.

I'm certain Albert will be the next Marcus McNeill, while Clady will be reduced to protecting Cutler's insulin pump on the sideline, because as you're all well aware, I'm never wrong.

Albert will also allow fewer sacks. We'll use this website to track that stat throughout the season:

http://hosted.stats.com/fb/playersta...d=8792&team=12

http://hosted.stats.com/fb/playersta...id=8789&team=7

Let the games begin.



Offseason: Albert looks more menacing and much deadlier in his football uniform. The visor is a plus.

Winner: Branden Albert

Exactly. Albert is doing nothing. Clady is blocking the snot out of his man. Winner: Clady. And please keep this thread. The last one Bob started (Cutler Vs. Croyle) turned into a total delight. It will be funny when Albert isn't even playing LT at the opener and still struggles more than Clady.

I see Clady holding, not blocking.

As for Albert, the defenders are clearly scared out of their minds. They're getting out of the way of that freight train! CHOO CHOO! HERE COMES THE 71 EXPRESS!

That just goes to show how misguided you are.

Albert's a "franchise" left tackle? Guess you are clueless he was a guard in college?

And what's with those tiny little shoulder pads??

I like this part of Albert's scouting report: "Not a dominant run blocker." The guy was a guard.

Offensive linemen hold every play. The thing that separates the best from the rest is not getting caught.

Kaylore, how uninformed this post was. Albert played left tackle twice as senior.

Winner: Bob the informed.

Hey Dummasss...Holding jerseys at shoulder widths is legal in the NFL at the LOS. Clady had NFL blocking methods down pat even in college.

My guess is Albert is a dominant run blocker this year and gives up about five sacks. He'll rack up five or six penalties.

Clady will struggle to block anyone in the run game and give up about 12 sacks and commit 10 penalties. Ouch!

I realize a number of us have expressed a fair amount of doubt regarding his play this year a LT, but I don't think we are being that cynical. I'm guessing only 4 sacks and 3-4 penalties. You can have a slightly more positive outlook on him.

I am sure Boob would say he wins with a stat line like below. Good football knowledge is so hard to find.

Clady has this statline at the end of the year.. 3 sacks allowed... 6 penalties.. 16 games started.

Albert....1 sack allowed... 2 penalties, 1 game started..2 games played. So who has the better stats?

one guy's standing around not blocking (of course, the Chief) while the other is mauling someone using questionable tactics (obviously the Bronco). man, that picture needs to be destroyed--blatant hold.
