PFT take on Albert and his twitter account

Branden Albert bids farewell to Twitter

Posted by Mike Florio on March 7, 2013, 8:58 AM EST

It came with much less fanfare than Arian Foster’s recent exit from the 140-character social media platform. But in the end the result was the same.

Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert has abandoned Twitter.

The pulling of the plug came in the hours after Albert expressed defiance regarding the possibility of moving to right tackle, following the unexpected release of starter Eric Winston.

Starting with “nope” regarding the possibility of moving to “you damn right” regarding his reluctance to be anything other than a left tackle, Albert drew a clear, deep line in the sand.

Thus, as of this posting, and as several of you have pointed out, Albert’s page is completely gone.

Chances are that Albert’s agent contacted the player with something along the lines of “what in the hell are you doing?” before explaining that Albert was setting the stage for either looking weak by later going along with whatever the coaching staff tells him to do or engaging in conduct detrimental to the team by refusing to follow orders.

There’s also a chance that, if Albert doesn’t sign his one-year franchise tender, the Chiefs will eventually rescind it. Coach Andy Reid did that twice in Philly, with defensive tackle Corey Simon in 2005 and linebacker Jeremiah Trotter three years before that. If the tag is removed at any time after the draft, Albert will have a hard time getting paid a lot of money to play any position on the football field in 2013.

So, basically, the social-media monster known meekly as Twitter has claimed another victim.

Like the rest of us, Albert knew the risks. And yet all too many of us eventually give in to the impulses that result in 140 or fewer characters we’ll never be able to fully live down

Exactly. The 9ers have a pretty good line, but Alex Smith always was among the league leaders in sacks taken.

If it's not that hard, why didn't you give us a per snap stat that was meaningful instead of going with the less meaningful raw data?

It's not that hard for me to find it because I have a PFF subscription, but it's pretty hard for most people to pull that stuff together to get a good idea of how Albert's season compares to other LTs. But even on PFF, it's not all that easy to sort LTs by sacks allowed per snap.

The National Football Post passes along "buzz building in league circles" that the draft's top-three offensive tackles are in "high demand" and will "go fast" on the first day of the draft.The tackle-needy Chargers, sitting at 11, can no longer count on one of the tackles falling to them. They may have to reach for D.J. Fluker, and we could also see Terron Armstead going in the first round. Per NFP, "some" would not be surprised if a team like the Dolphins traded up for a left tackle. We expect Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher, and Lane Johnson all to be top-seven picks. Apr 15 - 1:14 PM

Albert is NOT a top five left tackle. Otherwise, people would be climbing all over themselves to get him for a second round selection.

Albert's above average. Not great, not bad but above average. Considering there are greater needs, the Chiefs should take whatever trade makes them comfortable in order to address other positions.

One thing about Kizer: I think Notre Dame was so much of a shitshow, overrated program that he could have some untapped potential in a more stable environment. I like his talent the most out of all these guys.

Ya. So it's not easy to judge Albert because our QBs take 5 steps back and hold the ball til they're sacked.

It means Smith will be even worse behind less than the NFL's best offensive line...

I agree. He's a lot more John Tait than Willie Roaf and there are other areas that should be addressed.

I think even calling him "top 5-10" is misleading. He's arguably been between the 5th and 10th best LT in the league for 2 years of a 5 year career, but it's not clear that that's true. And, IMO, it's not really even very arguable that he's top 5.

Let's look at PFF's Pass Blocking Efficiency rating that takes into account sacks allowed, hits, and pressures on a per passing snap basis. Albert ranked 7th among LTs in 2012 and 8th in 2011.*

But using PFFs overall rating that includes run blocking and penalties as well as pass blocking, he ranks 13th in 2012 and 12th in 2011.* $

All of this leaves out his propensity to miss snaps due to injury, his ability/inability to make the guy next to him better, and his intangibles.

_______
* These rankings are based on tackles who played at least 25% of their team's snaps.

$ The overall rating is not on a per snap basis, so I did some rough math to make an adjustment to the 2012 ranking. Based on the raw rating, he came in as the 17th ranked LT in 2012.

I would have no problem ranking him between top 5 and top 10. So why are we talking about getting rid of him again?

I'd like to think that Reid isn't dumb enough to want to protect his veteran QB with a rookie LT.

And the ball holding stats means little. A lot of it depends on your offense and the quality of QB.

IE. Blaine Gabbert is one of the fastest as releasing the ball. Except it's because he does nothing but throws checkdown passes.
