The Dude Abides...Week 2 Spotlight on Ron Fields and Ryan Harris.

Last week, I took a play by play look at Brandon Marshall and Champ Bailey.  This week, I had originally intended to look at Ryan Clady on offense.  However, he was so completely dominant, I thought it would be more interesting to see how Clady does in later weeks against better competition.

 

So this week I looked at Ron Fields and Ryan Harris, play by play.  As I stated last week, it's quite interesting to watch a game and not pay attention to the ball.  It allows you to see things from a much different perspective.  For example, as you will see from the drive log, Ron Fields does not generally play NT on passing downs.  Marcus Thomas subs for him.  Simply by watching this substitution, one can see pre-snap (without straining to see the secondary coverage) whether Coach Nolan is thinking the offense is going to run or pass.  It also allows you to see when he guesses wrong, which means Fields is trying to generate a pass rush (not really his strength).   It also allows you to see when Nolan guesses right, which is most of the time.  Rarely does Nolan have Fields on the field when the offense passes the ball.

 

As always, I have below the play log for each player if you would like to read a play by play account of both Fields and Harris.  But I've also included a brief bullet point summary of each as well with an overall grade (of out 10).  As an aside, I would have given Champ Bailey and 9.5 last week and Brandon Marshall a 5.5. 

 

 

Ron Fields

  • B.J. who?  What a great pickup Fields was.  Although he generally subs with Marcus Thomas on passing downs, this guy gives the Center and Guard a lot of hell on 1st and 2nd down.  He got a lot of push all day against the Browns.
  • He is quicker than advertised and generally stays low on the double teams.  I only saw him stood up twice during the game and it was more due to the fact that he got off the ball a bit late.  He is also shifty and will sometimes twist out of the double teams as well.
  • He likes to split the double team when possible instead of simply holding the point.  This caused not just one, but several disruptions in the backfield and was a critical part of Denver's run defense.  However, he can hold the point well.  I only saw him pushed back on one running play all game.
  • As an added bonus, it appears from his body language that he really enjoys the carnage on the inside.  I like this about him.  He's demented.
  • Clearly his big weakness is lateral movement, and when the play flows away from him, he's probably not going to make the tackle.  But this is not his job in Nolan's defense.
  • Doesn't generate much of a pass rush (again, not really his job)

Overall Grade: 8.5 out of 10.  I would say there were only 3 plays in which he could have done a better job of either getting push or taking on the double team.  He's a great fit for 1st and 2nd downs for this scheme.  He penetrates and stays very low and is disruptive.   I would have graded him higher if the Browns hadn't had to pass so much in the 2nd half and he was in on more plays.  If you want to see what Ron Fields is all about, simply look at Cleveland's first drive of the game in which he was a wreckin' crew.

 

 

Ryan Harris:

  • An exceptional pass blocker from the tape that I saw.  He was beat only twice during the game (once badly on an edge rush where he leaned), but Orton was not sacked on either play.
  • He is decent as a run blocker against defensive tackles, but devastating against linebackers.   When he gets to the 2nd level (some of Denver's run plays call for him to combo), he pastes linebackers and they want no part of him.
  • He is very good at sealing off the backside, takes this seriously, and doesn't take a play off, even if the ball is run far away from him.  This is also true of Clady, and both men seem to enjoy cut blocking the backside as well.
  • After runs, it's fun to watch him because he is always down field celebrating like he is one of the skill players.  I enjoyed this a lot.
  • The Browns stunted on him several times and also sent and extra blitz defender at him on several occasion, with some limited success.

Overall Grade: 7.8 out of 10.  I may be grading a little tough, but I think Harris can play better, although he certainly performed fine in this game.  I have to ding him for the 2 plays in which he was beat on the edge and handful of play in which he could have shown a better push on the run or better decision making on the blitz.  He's not going to show quite the domination that we see thus far from Ryan Clady, but he is certainly a very good tackle.

 

Again, if anyone wants a play by play of this, it is below, and if you want someone specifically spotlighted next week, let me know in the comment section.   Against the Raiders, we could probably draw straws and find someone good.

 

Go Broncos!!
Rock the Neck Beard!!


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1st Quarter

Cleveland - 14:55

CLE kicked off, P. Hillis returned kickoff for 24 yards. P. Hillis fumbled. B. Costanzo recovered fumble

B. Quinn incomplete pass down the middle

*Wow.  Fields bursts past the center on the left side, forcing the running back to help and double him.  Not a bad first play from scrimmage.

J. Lewis rushed up the middle for 1 yard gain

*Fields slants hard left, but has the athletic ability to spin 360 degrees back into the play away from the blocker and gets part of the tackle of Lewis at the line of scrimmage.

B. Quinn passed to B. Edwards down the middle for 14 yard gain

*Clear passing down.  Fields not in the formation.

J. Lewis rushed to the left for 1 yard gain

*Again great burst and takes on the double team hard.  Nice pushback.  Not involved in play, but good strength on the double team.

J. Lewis rushed to the right for 2 yard gain

*On this play, he is surprised by the quick snap and comes out of his stance too high and is pushed back.  This play is in clear contrast to the previous play.  Could have done much better.

B. Quinn incomplete pass to the left

*Obvious passing down.  Fields not in the formation.

P. Dawson kicked a 22-yard field goal

Cleveland - 12:22

CLE kicked off, touchback

Denver - 12:22

1st-10, DEN20            12:22   K. Orton passed to J. Gaffney to the right for 25 yard gain

*Excellent pass blocking.  Simple.

1st-10, DEN45            12:02   DEN committed 5 yard penalty

*N/A

1st-15, DEN40            11:42   K. Orton incomplete pass to the right

*Excellent pass blocking.

2nd-15, DEN40           11:37   K. Orton passed to B. Stokley to the left for 4 yard loss

*Busted play.  Harris's man not involved since the pass was on the other side of the field.

3rd-19, DEN36           11:02   CLE committed 5 yard penalty

*Harris chops his man.  Defender not a factor in the play.

1st-10, DEN41            10:58   C. Buckhalter rushed to the right for 2 yard gain

*Harris doesn't get a good push.  His man sheds him and makes the tackle.

2nd-8, DEN43 10:28   K. Orton incomplete pass to the right

*Tackle stunts to the inside.  Harris follows him for a moment until he realizes the linebacker is now coming through the hole he vacated.  It's too late.  Harris can only whiff at him.  Linebacker comes through pretty clean, but luckily, Orton has thrown the ball.

3rd-8, DEN43 10:23   K. Orton incomplete pass to the right

A screen pass, but it's diagnosed by Cleveland well.   Harris ends up blocking no one.

4th-8, DEN43  10:07   B. Kern punt. J. Cribbs returned punt for 7 yards

*Not involved in play.

Cleveland - 10:07

1st-10, CLE12 10:07   B. Quinn incomplete pass down the middle

*Non eventful.  It's a pass.  There are two blockers, hard for Fields to mount much of anything.

2nd-10, CLE12            10:02   J. Harrison rushed up the middle for 1 yard gain

*Fields is very quick off the ball, splits the defenders and then has the quickness to lunch from behind to help take down the runner.  A disruptive force on this play.

3rd-9, CLE13  9:14     B. Quinn rushed up the middle for no gain. B. Quinn fumbled. D.

Reid recovered fumble

*It's another for sure passing down, so Fields is not in the formation.

Denver - 9:14

1st-10, CLE10 9:14     K. Moreno rushed up the middle for 4 yard gain

*Nice seal off from Harris on his man on the backside.  Just Excellent.

2nd-5, CLE5    8:37     K. Moreno rushed to the right for 3 yard gain

* Not bad, but not great either.  He and his man stalemate here.  Could have got a better push.

 

3rd-2, CLE2    8:03     K. Orton passed to T. Scheffler to the left for 2 yard touchdown.

*Non-eventful, but he does keep his man out of the play even though the ball is thrown to the other side of the field.

 

M. Prater made PAT

Denver - 8:03

DEN kicked off, touchback

Cleveland - 8:03

1st-10, CLE20 8:03     J. Lewis rushed to the right for 3 yard gain

* Fields is pushed back slightly by the double team but fights hard and is in on the tackle.

2nd-7, CLE23  7:28     J. Lewis rushed to the left for 12 yard gain

* The ball is run to the outside, so Fields simply pursues.

1st-10, CLE35 7:03     B. Quinn rushed to the right for 5 yard gain

* Fields is a non-factor in the pass rush as Quinn scrambles out of the pocket.

2nd-5, CLE40  6:30     J. Lewis rushed up the middle for 3 yard gain

* Fields pushes his man into the backfield but doesn't get the tackle.

3rd-2, CLE43  5:48     B. Quinn passed to M. Furrey to the left for 2 yard gain

*Fields not in formation...passing down.  It seems as if Marcus Thomas is taking his place on all passing downs thus far.

1st-10, CLE45 5:08     J. Lewis rushed up the middle for 1 yard gain

*Fields not in formation. 

2nd-9, CLE46  4:31     B. Quinn passed to B. Edwards down the middle for 20 yard gain

*Fields not in formation.

1st-10, DEN34            3:55     J. Lewis rushed up the middle for 2 yard gain

* Fields is inside this double team somewhere!  He stands up to the pressure is one of the reasons this play doesn't go more than 2 yards.

2nd-8, DEN32 3:15     B. Quinn passed to J. Harrison to the left for 2 yard gain

*Fields not in the formation.  As an aside, Adra Davis is one hell of a linebacker even in coverage on this play.

 

3rd-6, DEN30 2:33     B. Quinn passed to J. Cribbs to the right for 1 yard gain

*Fields not in the formation.

4th-5, DEN29  1:49     P. Dawson kicked a 47-yard field goal

Cleveland - 1:49

CLE kicked off, E. Royal returned kickoff for 22 yards

Denver - 1:43

1st-10, DEN19            1:43     C. Buckhalter rushed to the left for 11 yard gain

*Harris tries to cut his man backside.  Defender leaps over the block.  So what?  His man still did not get within 10 yards of the play.

1st-10, DEN30            1:16     C. Buckhalter rushed to the right for 2 yard gain

*Harris starts the block off well, but doesn't get a good push.  His man is able to finally shed him and make the tackle.

2nd-8, DEN32 0:35     K. Orton passed to B. Marshall down the middle for 3 yard gain

*Perfect textbook pass blocking by Harris.  Excellent work.  His man doesn't even get close to Orton.

2nd Quarter

Denver continued

3rd-5, DEN35 15:00   K. Orton passed to B. Stokley down the middle for 37 yard gain

*Another textbook case is passblocking from Harris.

1st-10, CLE28 14:12   C. Buckhalter rushed up the middle for 5 yard gain

*Harris gets to the 2nd level and here the linebacker wants no part of him.  LB doesn't get close to the tackle.

2nd-5, CLE23  13:29   K. Orton passed to E. Royal to the right for 7 yard gain

*What can you say about Harris and his pass blocking?  Perfect once again.

1st- 10, CLE16            13:05   C. Buckhalter rushed up the middle for 2 yard gain

* Harris does an average job of sealing backside.

2nd-8, CLE14  12:21   K. Orton incomplete pass down the middle

* Not sure what happens on this play, but it appears as if the guard blows his assignment and the middle linebacker is left free for a blitz.  Harris stays with is block even as Orton scrambles out of the pocket.

3rd-8, CLE14  12:15   K. Orton passed to B. Stokley to the right for 9 yard gain

*Harris does a good job here, but his man eventually breaks through to flush Orton from the pocket.  But he did give Orton time.  I wouldn't consider this a breakdown for Harris.

1st-5, CLE5     11:58   K. Orton incomplete pass to the right

*Quick fade play.  Harris does fine.

2nd-5, CLE5    11:54   K. Orton incomplete pass to the left

*Good pass blocking once again.

3rd-5, CLE5    11:49   K. Orton incomplete pass to the right

*Well every good think must come to an end.  Harris is beat on the outside by a nice and shifty juke move and the defensive end goes right by him.  This is the breakdown on the play that causes Orton to essentially throw the ball into the ground.  Harris gets used on this play.

4th-5, CLE5     11:42   M. Prater kicked a 23-yard field goal

*Good job, no penetration.

Denver - 11:42

DEN kicked off, J. Cribbs returned kickoff for 21 yards

 

Cleveland - 11:38

1st-10, CLE18 11:38   J. Lewis rushed to the right for 6 yard gain

2nd-10, DEN47           9:15     J. Lewis rushed up the middle for 1 yard loss

*Fields not in formation.

3rd-11, DEN48           8:34     B. Quinn passed to J. Cribbs to the right for 5 yard gain

*Fields not in formation.

4th-6, DEN43  7:55     D. Zastudil punt, touchback

*Fields not in formation

 

Denver - 7:55

1st-10, DEN20            7:55     K. Moreno rushed to the right for 12 yard gain

*Nice power block by Harris.   When he gets matched up against a linebacker, it's game over for the defender.

1st-10, DEN32            7:22     K. Moreno rushed to the left for 2 yard loss

*Good seal block by Harris. 

2nd-12, DEN30           6:45     K. Orton incomplete pass to the left

*Nice pass blocking.

3rd-12, DEN30           6:37     K. Orton incomplete pass down the middle

*Gets help from TE on pass block, but did not need it.

4th-12, DEN30            6:17     B. Kern punt. J. Cribbs returned punt for 17 yards

*Not involved in play.

Cleveland - 6:17

1st-10, CLE30 6:17     J. Lewis rushed up the middle for 1 yard gain

*It's become clear to the Broncos that Cleveland is going to pass now.  Fields is not out there.

2nd-9, CLE31  5:39     B. Quinn passed to J. Lewis to the left for 8 yard gain

*Fields not in formation.

3rd-1, CLE39  4:53     J. Lewis rushed to the left for no gain

*Fields fights hard, and it not initially in on the stop but throws his man aside and ends up in the middle of the play. 

4th-1, CLE39   4:00     D. Zastudil punt, no return

*Fields not in play.

Denver - 4:00

1st-10, DEN5  4:00     K. Moreno rushed to the right for 4 yard gain

*Good push by Harris.  Moreno ends up running right up his back.

2nd-6, DEN10 3:23     K. Moreno rushed to the left for 5 yard gain

*Play run away from Harris.  Unsuccessfully tries to cut his man backside.

3rd-1, DEN15 2:42     K. Moreno rushed to the right for 1 yard gain

*His man slants towards the play side, so Harris simple pushes his man right into the turf.

1st-10, DEN16            2:05     C. Buckhalter rushed to the right for 4 yard gain

*Good initial push, could have finished better.

2nd-6, DEN20 1:59     K. Orton incomplete pass to the right

*Quick pass, so Harris did a good job.

3rd-6, DEN20 1:56     K. Orton passed to E. Royal to the right for 11 yard gain

*Harris reads the blitz properly and takes the appropriate rusher.  The pass rusher doesn't get close.

1st-10, DEN31            1:50     K. Orton incomplete pass to the left

*Good pass blocking once again by Harris.

2nd-10, DEN31           1:42     K. Orton incomplete pass to the right

*Nice pass blocking again.  Harris's man stunts to the inside, but he picks up the man stunting to the outside and the guard picks up the stunt to the inside.  Excellent team work.

3rd-10, DEN31           1:37     K. Orton passed to B. Stokley to the left for 18 yard gain

*Again, good pass blocking by Harris.

1st-10, DEN49            1:32     K. Orton passed to E. Royal to the left for 2 yard gain

* Strange play.  Play is away from Harris and he does a good job, then Royal cuts back across the field.  Harris finds another man and hits him when the plays reverses.

2nd-8, CLE49  0:59     CLE committed 18 yard penalty

*Harris does an average job of pass blocking.  Harris's man almost gets to Orton.

1st-10, CLE31 0:53     K. Orton incomplete pass down the middle

*Harris probably makes an error hear.  His man stunts the inside and the Linebacker runs free to his outside shoulder.   Orton is forced to throw early.

2nd-10, CLE31            0:47     K. Orton passed to B. Stokley down the middle for 10 yard gain

*Harris essentially takes out two blockers on this play.  Excellent work.

1st-10, CLE21 0:41     K. Orton incomplete pass to the left

*Adequate job of pass blocking and keeps his man off Orton.

2nd-10, CLE21            0:36     K. Orton incomplete pass to the left

*Cleveland sends the house.  Harris takes his man and does fine, there are just two extra defenders along with him.

3rd-10, CLE21            0:32     K. Orton incomplete pass to the left

*Harris does fine once again.  Cleveland sends extra defenders once again.

4th-10, CLE21 0:23     M. Prater missed a 39-yard field goal

*Not involved in play.

Cleveland - 0:23

1st-10, CLE29 0:23     B. Quinn rushed up the middle for 1 yard loss

*Cleveland kills the clock.

3rd Quarter

Denver - 15:00

DEN kicked off, J. Cribbs returned kickoff for 19 yards

Cleveland - 14:55

1st-10, CLE23 14:55   B. Quinn sacked by E. Dumervil

*Fields isn't much of a threat on this pass play, locked in a tug of war with the offensive lineman.

2nd-12, CLE21            14:24   J. Lewis rushed up the middle for 3 yard gain

*Fields gets pushed back on the double team.  Tough tough double team on this play.

3rd-9, CLE24  13:34   B. Quinn passed to J. Cribbs to the right for 7 yard gain. J. Cribbs fumbled. B. Dawkins recovered fumble

*Fields on the formation on passing down.  As a side note, these kinds of plays just did not seem to happen from previous Denver defenses.  I'm just saying.

Denver - 13:34

1st-10, CLE38 13:34   DEN committed 5 yard penalty

*Whistle before snap.

1st-15, CLE43 13:31   K. Orton passed to B. Marshall to the right for 6 yard gain

* The Browns send two players at the same time to Harris's spot.  Harris picks the inside player to block.  The second player has a free shot, but Orton gets rid of the ball in time.

2nd-9, CLE37  12:54   B. Marshall rushed to the left for 14 yard gain

*Good seal block by Harris.

1st-10, CLE23 12:14   K. Moreno rushed to the right for no gain

*Harris reaches on the block too much and falls forward to the ground, allowing his man to get in on the play.

2nd-10, CLE23            11:36   K. Orton passed to D. Graham to the right for 3 yard gain

*Harris gets help on the block at first from Graham, so his man was never much of a threat in the play.

3rd-7, CLE20  10:48   K. Orton incomplete pass to the left

*Excellent pass blocking by Harris.

4th-7, CLE20   10:39   M. Prater kicked a 38-yard field goal

*Good job, no penetration.

Denver - 10:39

DEN kicked off, J. Cribbs returned kickoff for 20 yards

Cleveland - 10:35

1st-10, CLE20 10:35   B. Quinn passed to B. Edwards to the left for 24 yard gain

*Fields doesn't generate much of a pass rush.

1st-10, CLE44 9:55     J. Harrison rushed up the middle for 2 yard gain

*Fields does a good job of getting lower than both blockers and holds the point of contact well.

2nd-8, CLE46  9:15     J. Lewis rushed to the left for 4 yard gain

*The play is wide left.  Fields isn't the most lateral guy but at least gets off the blocker and pursues.

3rd-4, 50         8:30     B. Quinn incomplete pass down the middle

*Fields not in formation on obvious passing down.

4th-4, 50          8:16     D. Zastudil punt, no return

*Not in formation.

Denver - 8:16

1st-10, DEN11            8:16     C. Buckhalter rushed up the middle for 2 yard gain

*Not a great run block by Harris.  Get's stood up.

2nd-8, DEN14 7:35     K. Moreno rushed to the left for 3 yard gain. CLE committed 15 yard penalty

*Harris really likes to try and cut the DE on plays to the other side of the field.  This is the 4th time he has tried it, with limited success.

1st-10, DEN32            7:07     K. Orton passed to K. Moreno to the left for 11 yard gain

*Gets help on outside pass block.  No problems.

1st-10, DEN43            6:28     K. Moreno rushed to the right for 2 yard gain

*Better push this time from Harris.    Moreno could have read the blocks better on this play.

2nd-8, DEN45 5:54     K. Orton rushed up the middle for 2 yard gain

*Very good pass blocking from Harris.  Was not hindered at all by the bull rush.

3rd-6, DEN47 5:12     K. Orton passed to B. Marshall to the right for 25 yard gain

*Most good pass blocking from Harris.

1st-10, CLE28 4:29     K. Moreno rushed to the left for 1 yard gain

*Tries to seal backside.  Not bad, but his man diagnoses the play quickly.

2nd-9, CLE27  3:53     K. Orton incomplete pass to the left

*Tries to cut on a pass block for some reason.  Still, his man was far away from the play.

3rd-9, CLE27  3:47     K. Orton passed to J. Gaffney to the right for 8 yard gain

*Adequate pass blocking, although his man did not try too hard.

4th-1, CLE19   2:49     M. Prater missed a 37-yard field goal

*Good job, no penetration.

Cleveland - 2:49

*Fields not in formation

1st-10, CLE43 2:10     B. Quinn passed to B. Edwards to the right for 13 yard gain

*Average job by Fields, but admittedly, he is being doubled on a pass play.

1st-10, DEN44            1:22     B. Quinn incomplete pass to the right

*Carbon copy of the previous play.  Fields is not built for rushing the passer, but does an adequate job.

2nd-10, DEN44           1:18     B. Quinn incomplete pass to the left

*Nice split of the double team.  Unfortunately, Fields slips in the process.

3rd-10, DEN44           1:15     B. Quinn incomplete pass to the left

*Fields not in formation.

4th-10, DEN44            1:03     D. Zastudil punt. A. Smith returned punt for 10 yards

2nd-8, DEN49 13:12   K. Orton passed to J. Gaffney to the left for 49 yard gain

Denver - 12:18

DEN kicked off, touchback

Cleveland - 12:18

1st-10, CLE20 12:18   B. Quinn passed to J. Harrison to the right for 2 yard loss

*Fields not in formation.

2nd-17, CLE13            11:19   B. Quinn sacked by E. Dumervil

*Exact same comment as above.

4th-28, CLE2   9:55     D. Zastudil punt. A. Smith returned punt for no gain. DEN committed 10 yard penalty

2nd-5, DEN38 9:19     K. Moreno rushed up the middle for 17 yard gain
