Now try to visualize what you remember about Doug Free's performance. If you're like me and probably 98% of all football fans, chances are the only thing you'll remember about Doug Free is the sack he allowed on Romo. That's only one play out of 65 snaps that Doug Free played on Sunday, yet often that's all we use to base our entire evaluation of a player on. That is the reality offensive linemen have to live with. For the most part, they get noticed only when they make mistakes or allow what NFL scouts call splash plays - plays that turn games around. Splash plays include sacks, QB hits, QB pressures and penalties.
