Why we are continuing to argue about what your videos are telling you is beyond me. It was a poorly executed play across the board. Seems like this is just turning into arguing for arguments sake now.
And I'm going back to this point.
I've been studying this part about the TE and I must say I disagree completely.
The TE is an integral part of the outside zone or the stretch play.
The blocking TE plays an important role in this system; I really don't get it when Lance and Rey insisted that the TE was not a problem in this particular play.
Especially after I had studied many similar situations in both 2011 and 2012.
