What's up with the OL run blocking?

Running to the edge in the Cornfields of Wisconsin and Iowa is different than doing the same thing in the league.  It appears that the staff are not confident he can make the edge beecause they haven’t called his number on it for a while.  His straight burst speed doesn’t necessarily translate in to sticking the foot in the ground to bounce to the edge then sticking the other foot in the ground and cutting it up.  IMO this will continue to become self evident.  Maybe later he evolves but right now today he’s very limited in the kinds of plays that he’s going to be routinely successful running.

 

Well misdirection?  You are advocating for a more power running scheme I think.  Running downhill seems pretty obviously JTs best trait.  Do you want them to try jet sweeps and deep motion crap?  Most misdirection runs involve. Jab steps and a start and stop from The running back which is nit necessarily something JT can do well or has ever done well since he took almost every carry for Wisco right down BroDway.

 

 

Actually they ran a lot of zone blocking scheme which allowed him to see and hit the hole to a degree in which we’re looking like were man on man power blocking up the middle in the nfl that huge hole lasts only so long..if we ran some zone stretches  to the outside I bet he’d be taking off and showing that speed and cutback ability I think we need to have our linemen moving from East to west instead of north because strength wise we are struggling and being stood up  Nelson included..but if you see Nelson running off the edge somewhere sure you want to be in his direction with a running start? Reich has to get creative  haha

I think it’s some them and some the Colts are very stubborn and predictable with their play calling.  They telegraph when they are going to run and rarely run play action in obvious running plays to c

Bears sold out a lot vs our run. We didn't adjust.  Taylor still had 4.0 even with the selling out. Reich needs to make it easier on the OL. Hit the edge more, don't be so predictable, run s

I agree with that to a point.  Part of the problem is that the Colts don’t do anything to make them not sell out against the run.  They run in obvious running situations and pass in obvious passing si

    • My 'notables' here: -Ja'Marr Chase and Kyle Pitts in the top 3 after Trevor Lawrence. Not that I disagree... just notable.  -Zach Wilson over Justin Fields. I think I agree... although it's close.  -Trey Lance over Justin Fields... I'm not sure I agree with this one. But interesting nonetheless.  -Rashawn Slater over Penei Sewell... hard disagree... but I like Slater too, so... I just love Sewell  -Caleb Farley over Patrick Surtain... I think I agree... have to do a lot more study on the CBs though.  -Gregory Rousseau EDGE1 over Kwity Paye -Trevon Moehrig S1 -Jaelan Phillips in top 20... interesting to see how the league sees him. From what I've heard he has some off-field stuff that might impact his draft stock.  -Kadarius Toney top 20... yes! I love Kadarius too.  -Levi Onwuzurike at 23... haven't seen him yet... but I think this is the highest I've seen him on draft boards. Interesting.  -Tutu Atwell no.31 -Joe Tryon no 32... not sure I agree with this one...  -Christian Barmore at 37!! Wow. He's low on him... I've seen people mock him in top 10.  -Eric Stokes makes top 50... Campbell does not.    Very interesting read. Will have to go over some of the prospects ... 
    • I look forward to seeing the changes on this list. He has almost ever tackle as an NFL right tackle so we will see how he changes on that. 
    • It has more to do with our scheme than with our players' specific strengths IMO. This scheme relies heavily on the LBs and safeties ability to rally to the ball when the pass is completed and not so much on sticking with the receiver and disrupting his ability to catch(this is part of the frustration with the scheme for me... we allow short passes to be completed on a whim and then rely on the secondary line of defense to get there and limit the damage). The length for our LBs serves multiple purposes not just in pass-defense - it is also useful keeping clean from blocks with long arm when in pursuit of a RB or a pass-catcher.   BTW 7 passes defended is not a little for a LB. For example - Bobby Wagner has 8, Fred Warner has 6... Demario Davis has 5... Lavonte David has 6... It's very much in line with all the best LBs in the league. 
    • That contract for Xavier Rhodes is a 1 year deal for 3 million? I mean that is funny. I think he might be looking for a lot more than that. Plus I would not be shocked if he gets at least a two year deal.
