Now what did you not like about Newton's steps that were "terrible & aweful"
Looks like he tried to secure the edge, like he squared up on the DE, but that doesn't make sense with the rest of the line pushing everyone his way.
What you're saying, & what LZ is saying about "helping" the defense to the sideline makes sense, is it possible that Newton heard the call wrong? Like maybe he thought it would be an inside zone?
