I'm hoping we can start bringing along some younger guys on the OL, especially the interior because I don't want too much of a dropoff when Nalen retires.
Aikman got it right though, defenders have a hard time going up against our OL because if they commit to the backside pursuit then Plummer will start rolling out and tossing easy passes to Lelie/Putz who are doing a good job so far. Lelie still needs to improve his ability to get off the line easily but he's been clutch for us so far this season when we needed him. A real key to the success of the running game so far has been the power bocking of Carswell/Hape and Kyle Johnson
to a certain extent. With Carswell out, hopefully Kyle Johnson
can pick up the slack and we can continue to use Hape/Putz as H-Backs and use plenty of motion to stop defenses from guessing which side we're going to run to.
I never said the criticicism wasn'
t deserved. He was really thrown in the fire and he probably wasn't the best choice but he has a great system and coach to learn from. I think he is the type of coach owners are looking for.. The Jack Del Rio type...
