I heard his comment, too.
It's a fair question for people to pose.
But it's quite similar to a situation where, let's say a defense play cover 2 against our 21 personnel.
They put 2 CBs and 2 safeties do defend the pass, and therefore has only 7 in the box against our 7 blockers (5 O-linemen, a TE, and a FB).
Somebody has to defeat a block to make play because the safeties are too far away to come down in time.
With a guy like Quin, we exchange beef with quickness; that's all.
And he did defeat a few blocks out there.
