You can always pin it on one thing, or another. But, I'll say this: it still comes down to mano y mano, whoever takes care of their assignment best. It doesn't matter what play call is being called. The only thing we, as fans, can argue is context. But I don't think we can second-guess design. What if the line actually does its job, and performs the fundamental pass protection properly, Alex will have a little more time than he was afforded, maybe a better outcome could have resulted. Or, if Gore, or whoever is asked to carry the ball, doesn't slip or lose footing, that two yard gain becomes a five yard, or six yard gain; or, if delanie doesn't space out, and doesn't give that surprised look on his face when he tried running that end around. Maybe that actually gets positive yardage. It'll come down to execution, the players know this. The Philly game was all about execution, and football is about execution, at the end of the day. The only thing design gets credo, is being able to sell a play's ability to garner a huge result.
