First of all great work breaking down the play at the Line. I can't say enough how much stuff like this means to me. You won't see stuff like this on any other fan site so far that I am aware of. Probably because people think that it wouldn't go over well. The Anti-Egghead syndrome if you will.
2nd I think this just backs up what I've been saying all along about both Smith and the Line. That...
A) Smith needs time. Turning around into a Sack directly after the snap is not something that is conducive to being a solid QB. Also not the FAULT of the QB. Something that a QB can't read under Center either.
THe other is that these guys while the have their good moments don't seem to put it together on a consistent basis. Sims... I think his problem on the RT spot is that he doesn't know the unit well enough to blindly trust them to hold up. Maybe he's getting there now because he knows the LT spot better than the RT spot so he doesn't over analyze the assignment.
And These guys to a man don't seem to be receiving solid Coaching from the OL Coach. Maybe it's just me, but I think that this team needs a world class character as their Coach. Someone who inspires them. Cause this guy we have now doesn't seem to be doing that well at all.
Now some of you may think I've lost my mind, but I think we need a Sumo Coach. Someone that can show that Mass up front how to remain LOW and stand guys up. Because I would be willing to bet that on just about every play where one of our guys got beat they were blocking high. That NEVER ends well unless the Defense left early.
