Albert and Clady both allowed one sack this year. They are both elite left tackles. We'll call it a draw, even though Clady allowed more QB hits.

It looks like a clear Clady win to me. He's the only elite one of the two.

How is Albert going to get any consideration for Canton, Ohio if he can't make a single Pro Bowl?

Albert's definitely elite. He's strung together two pretty good years now, some like 6 sacks allowed combined the last two seasons.

Congrats to Clady on getting one good year in.

FYI, PFF gave Clady a 97.4 pass blocking efficiency score this season. Albert was at 96.6. They are the same player at this point.

Albert has 2 more tackles what is your point? If you watch tape Clady is far better then Albert. Elite left tackle on bad teams still get recognized. See Jake Long and Joe Thomas. The only time Albert's names comes up in a discussion is when you bring him up. He is an above average LT he is no were near elite.

Sorry, by unbiased analysis he is in the upper echelon this year. And he has been for two years now.

Congrats on Clady on having a good season for a change.

By PFF: Clady is the 3rd best LT in the league.
Albert? 16th.

Clady had a better rating than Albert in every single category (pass block, run block, screen block, and penalty).

Clady was rated better in 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2012.
Albert was better in 2011, congrats.

Adding insult to injury, there's a decent chance Albert will be playing elsewhere in 2013. So much for the Queefs' homegrown franchise left tackle.

Newsflash: string together two "pretty good" years and you're all of a sudden an elite player. Classic Bob.

So let's play a game called "Elite = "
Elite = Kordell Stewart
Elite = Priest Holmes
Elite = DeAngelo Hall
Elite = Pacman Jones

50% Elite = Tommy Maddox

And the list goes on...

Your point is irrelevant.

Albert is playing a high level the last two seasons. Only gave up 5 sacks last year and just one this year.

Pass blocking efficiency is also among the league leaders. 8th this year and was even better last season at 5th. Only 3 OTs in the entire league allowed fewer pressures.

Meanwhile Clady was completely dog**** last season before getting his **** together this year.

Clady is good and had a great year. You guys need to recognize Albert playing at the same level for two years now.

OK, make excuses, whatever.

Albert has been playing at a high level for two years in a row now. For you to trumpet Clady as a better play is simply not true.

They are about equal at this point, with the caveat that Clady plays with a QB who is far better at avoiding pressure and getting rid of the ball.

4 of their 5 years in the league Clady has been better.

I also don't think anyone considers the 12th (2011) or 16th (2012) best person at a position elite.

What's your point? Broncos are 12-3, Chorfs are 2-13, duh?

Clady is a pro bowler!
