Week 5 Sack Analysis vs the Buccaneers

Analyzing each sack given up by the Jaguars all season, moving onto week 5.

Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Entering Sunday's game, the Jaguars had given up only 8 sacks through 4 games. That number took a pretty big hit vs the Bucs', because they gave up almost that total on Sunday alone, surrendering 6 sacks.

In Week 1 I described the process of distributing accountability to the Jaguars offense when it comes to sacks, be it the OL, Blake, or a miscellaneous reason such as a free blitzer.

Sack No. 1

Situation: 3rd-and-4 at the Jaguars 26 yard line. 9:02 left in the first quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sack #1. Beadles gets bodied. Good design by Tampa, kind of like a pick. <a href="https://t.co/imAPf95lSo">https://t.co/imAPf95lSo</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/653954862141599744">October 13, 2015</a></blockquote>

Who was at fault: Zane Beadles

This was a nice design by Tampa, with the DT/DE kind of acting like 2 WRs running picks agaisnt DBs. Except in this case, the DB was Zane Beadles, and it was like an All American WR vs a Pop Warner DB. Beadles can't let these plays happen.

Sack No. 2

Situation: 3rd-and-7 at the Jaguars 23 yard line. 9:57 left in the 2nd quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sack #2. Bucs send 7. I&#39;m not sure if anyone was open. <a href="https://t.co/3VCrihRfB9">https://t.co/3VCrihRfB9</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/653955171739914240">October 13, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Who was at fault: Miscellaneous.

This was simply a free blitzer that came in too quick for Bortles to be able to dump off the ball anywhere. Good scheme by Tampa.

Sack No. 3

Situation: 1st-and-10 at the Jaguars 49 yard line. 1:35 left in the 2nd quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sack #3. Corner blitz and Beadles gets embarrassed by blitzing Linebacker. <a href="https://t.co/uX8IPRATFy">https://t.co/uX8IPRATFy</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/653955483066347521">October 13, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Who was at fault: Beadles AND Miscellaneous

This is actually a split sack. OH YEAH. Wait, that is bad.

On this sack the Bucs send a ton of blitzers again and a blitzing corner is left unaccounted for. Besides this though, Zane Beadles gets beat aain. You can even see him pass off the DT and stare at his assignment but then he does...nothing.

Sack No. 4

Situation: 3rd-and-11 at the Jaguars 19 yard line. 14:19 left in the 4th quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sack #4. Blake passes up an Open A-Rob but had to bail early because of interior pressure. <a href="https://t.co/65UlOpHwqI">https://t.co/65UlOpHwqI</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/653955990107332608">October 13, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Who was at fault: Blake Bortles

This one is more open for interpration than the other ones. On one hand Bortles had to deal with pressure in his face almost imemdiately. On the other hand, he had A-Rob streaking accross the field wide open for a check down type pass. Blake has to react quicker with the ball when pressured like this.

Sack No. 5

Situation: 1st-and-10 at the Jaguars 43 yard line. 2:03 left in the 4th quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sack #5. Tampa dialed up the blitz a ton, Jags never adjusted. <a href="https://t.co/j0Ju7tEICA">https://t.co/j0Ju7tEICA</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/653956306890571776">October 13, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Who was at fault: Zane Beadles AND Miscellaneous. Again.

The Bucs, again, sent too many blitzers for the Jaguars OL to account for. But aside this, Zane Beadles, again, got beat and attributed to the sack.

Sack No. 6

Situation: 3rd-and-15 at the Jaguars 39 yard line. 1:50 left in the 4th quarter.

The Sack: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sack #6. Parnell gets beat, Blake has to step into pocket, is met by McCoy who bodied Beadles. <a href="https://t.co/MiwePOGxIj">https://t.co/MiwePOGxIj</a></p>&mdash; Hank Bortlebert (@HankJoness) <a href="https://twitter.com/HankJoness/status/653956696713338881">October 13, 2015</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Who was at fault: Zane Beadles.

Parnell gets beat initially, forcing Blake to step up in the pocket. This happens, though, and wouldn't have been a sack if, you guessed it, Zane Beadles didn't get beat. Again.

The Jaguars are now at 14 sacks through 5 games. This is compared to 20 at the same point last year.
