The biggest thing I am seeing is the inability from our OT's and OG's to block down on their man when they attack the middle of the line. These DE's and DT's are hitting the holes hard and the guys are struggling to engage and keep them from penetrating into the backfield.
I'm not sure if it is a lack of athleticism, or bad technique, or a combination of both. Simply too much penetration at the LOS. I saw numerous times yesterday where Baas was angry with himself, after being beat on a run play.
