Denver Bronco

Biggest Drop Off

Ryan Clady: From +13.8 to -23.6


We’ve always had something of a different take on Clady from watching every one of his snaps since entering the NFL. He made his name by not giving up a sack as a rookie, though that stat really hid the total amount of pressure he gave up. Still, he got better and better, and put forth a fine 2010 … so what happened this year? The 12 penalties certainly hurt, and he wasn’t terrible with his pass blocking, but Clady continues to struggle to do much of anything in the run game. The option and Tebow caught teams off guard and bought the Denver line more credit than it warranted, so with a full season to figure it out, opponents are likely to make Clady’s struggles all the more evident if he doesn’t improve.

Most Improved

Branden Albert: From -10.8 Pass Blocking, to +8.9 Pass Blocking


In some respects, Albert looked like a guard playing tackle his first three years in the league. You can’t say that anymore after a drastic turnaround in performance that saw the Chiefs’ left tackle finish the year in fifth position in our Offensive Tackle Pass Blocking Efficiency ranking, giving up just 24 combined sacks, hits, and hurries. A year earlier, that number was 40 (on 59 fewer pass blocks) – an indication of how far he has come.

To the extent true it's mostly because of Clady's injury. Starting to look like maybe he'll never be what he could have been...

Don't give up on Clady yet. Give him a true year to heal and see where he stands. Also, any "professional" that writes a critique of an O-lineman should always look at the guys playing right next to him on the line. In Clady's case, Zane Beadles. When you can't count on the guy next to you, you compensate and often get out of position.

Also, Clady was brought in to protect Cutler and our high flying passing game. To change from that to the "best run offense in the NFL" is quite a change, and quite an accomplishment.

Finally, look at our receiving corps and QB familiarity. Tebow just flat out hheld the ball too long. Many of these things should be addressed in the offseason.

And, Albert is still a Chief, so take that for what it's worth.

Ryan Clady had a pretty good year facing some incredible pass rushers and playing next to the worst guard in the league. If he could play next to a good guard like Branden Albert he would rate way better. I don't think anyone really gets how terrible Zane Beadles is. BTW the same site that rated Clady rates Beadles as the worst starting lineman in the league.

Yes, he had an awesome year, so awesome that he ranked 66th out of 76 tackles.

You = idiot.

So Bob, if your line is better, your QB is better, your defense is better,etc,..

Why did Denver end up winning a playoff game while the chefs watched on their TV's?

Clady is not the same player he was before the knee injury. He's a very middle of the pack talent now. Hopefully this is due to still not being 100% because of the knee, but I doubt it.

I bet he gets a whole lot better as his current contract comes to an end. Just saying...

Beadles has the tools. He just always looks lost.
