Michael Nania brings every offensive line metric together to figure out just how bad the New York Jets’ offensive line was in 2019.

Everyone and their mother knows how bad the New York Jets’ offensive line was in 2019. Blown protections. Penetration up the middle. Blind-side sacks. Entire games without a big hole for the backs to run through. It was a mess of epic proportions.

The thing is, most NFL fanbases head into every offseason with that exact same thought. Save for the select few teams (such as the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints) who enjoy inarguably tremendous play upfront, it seems every fan thinks their team’s offensive line is a weakness.

There are plenty of offensive line metrics out there, but none of them are perfect on their own. So, I decided that the best way to do this was to take all of the best statistics related to offensive line play and mash them all together to create a cumulative league-wide ranking.
