This website was created to provide NFL fans with offensive line individual stats for free. There are a few other sites that provide team O-line stats and one that provides individual stats for a subscription fee. However, olinestats.com is the only site that provides individual offensive lineman stats for free. Check any box score from any NFL game and you will see passing stats, rushing stats, receiving stats for offense that detail production of quarterbacks, running backs, receivers, and tight ends. Scroll down a little further and you will see tackles, sacks, and interceptions that highlight production of defensive linemen, linebackers, and defensive backs. There are even kicking and punting stats for kickers and punters. The only position group not found on an NFL standard box score are offensive lineman. This website seeks to change that one day. olinestats.com was also created to increase the exposure given to offensive linemen. Often a lack of exposure hurts fans' overall knowledge of O-line play which is why yearly, pro-bowl voting for offensive lineman is usually the worst of any position group, simply coming down to being either a popularity contest or fans picking players from a team with a good record. If fans were better informed and had access to better information and statistics regarding offensive linemen, fans could make better decisions and offensive linemen would be talked about more.
