LZ is right. The TE has to help on the DE before going to the next level. That would be an extremely hard block to make if the TE doesn't help. He did exactly what he was supposed to do.
LZ didn't say the TE had any fault at all. That was my biggest disagreement with him. He accused me of letting Newton off the hook (which I didn't, I agree Newton played it poorly).

This allows a smooth transition so that Newton can have time to get there to square up on the defender to perform the necessary reach block.
76 agrees the TE did not do his job on that play.
