The guys over at Pro Football Focus are at it again, this time using a 'simple' equation to rank the NFL's offensive guards in relation to their pass blocking ability. While Matt Slauson sits 7th worst, Brandon Moore leads the league only allowing 38 total pressures over the last three years. I'll let Pro Football Focus explain:

For those not aware how we figure it out, we use our Pass Blocking Efficiency Signature Stat that looks not just at total pressure numbers but adds an extra level of context by looking at how many snaps an offensive player spent in pass protection. Do achieve this we add sacks to three quarters the value of the total number of hits and hurries, divide it by pass blocking snaps and then multiply by 100. We then subtract that number from 100 and the closer the result to 100 the better.

Simple enough. Let’s take a look at how the numbers break down (note: only those guards who spent at least 1,000 snaps in pass protection qualified for the study).

Rank Player Current Team Pass Protects Total Pressure PBE
1 Brandon Moore NYJ 1585 38 98.17

I always consider Brandon Moore one of the most under-valued players on the team and in the league and this goes a way to showing why. A lot of Brandon's good work is undone by the revolving door at right tackle in Wayne Hunter. With Brandon Moore now turning 32, at some point we will need to think about replacing him but for the time being and over the last three years, Moore has done his job keeping Sanchez clean.
