Yeah I think you're right. It was a stretch play and it probably caught him off guard. Instead of charging up field he backed off and the lineman just ran through him.

It's just a zone play. The LT and LG are comboing Tank to the playside ILB. When the LB (camp body) flows fast, the LT has to leave in a hurry, and the LG takes over. Zone is one of the 5 basic running concepts, IIRC. He's seen zone blocking before; Tank just had a bad play. He had terrible pad level and hand placement from the snap.

As soon as he turned or was turned to his right it was over. He plays like a rookie...too undisciplined. But he still has shown enough promise, not worried about him. Just needs to develop a little more.
was that dial making the tackle? Nice.
Here's a link to the guy who put him on his butt:
Number 63
Dial is a stud

True but recognizing zone blocking in college and in practice is different then in an NFL game. He knows that now. Or i hope he got
The message.

Make him a situational pass rusher on third downs. How hard is that.

Was thinking the same thing, " Go after the QB and that's it" lol

I will agree that being bookworms don't exactly guarantee that Lemonier Jerod-Eddie and Dobbs are going to make the plays that Lynch Carradine and Dial might make if they are given more snaps. I can only hope we find ways to get our talent in rotation

Still perplexed about what's so hard to say "see the quarterback over there, do whatever you have to knock on his ass."

Yeah just bring him in on obvious pass rushing downs and tell him to get that f**ker Foles. The dude was at the quarterback constantly in the preseason. He showed weaknesses in the run game, but there is no denying that he has talent as a pass rusher. Him and Lynch need to be playing much much more. I've been so disappointed in Lemonier. He has no pass rush moves!
