The OL and OLBs are the key to our season going forward.
Mercilus was being held way too much for no calls, same could be said for Watt but Watt has the strength to beat even holds while Whitney still lacks core strength. He needs to work on hand placement, to keep these tackles from grabbing & holding, can't the defensive staff see that? Either that or he needs to line up more outside, use his speed & see if his body lean can come off the edge. Maybe he needs to play left side? more right side dominant, struggles trying to pull left from right....looks fixable but try something
