What exactly would you say both were awful at? Please provide some examples. I don't necessarily think he played great , but I'm curious on your specific take
Cant hold their block for one second. Their leverage is awful. Snyder got spun 180degrees around by Brockers for a front row seat to watch him sack Kaep. It was actually pretty impressive he made him do that. Looney has more of a load to push through but he doesnt carry his weight well at all--no force with his upper hand movement, he gets shredded easily in run blocking. (The worst of all our linemen.) Works too hard pass blocking with his upper body and you can see easily in this game that he gets pushed around.
Snyder has no power at all. Watch him; he will pull to make a block and what he does try to fill the space, he does not plow thru first defender, because he does not TRY to smash block. You could punch thru drywall if you wanted to push thru it, but you make a fist and slowly put your knuckles up to the wall and rest your fist against it. That's what Snyder does.
