These guys are good at zone blocking... Su'a-Filo is good at zone blocking... & like TPN said, we actually did a lot of ISOs & other run blocking as well... just more zone.

I expect our offense to be more of an evolution than a clean break.




I think that's the guy 'cak was talking about.



That's another guy who wasn't particularly huge & one of the better centers of our time.
As far as Stepnoski, he was indeed considered undersized at 6'2" 270, and he was a smashmouth power player. But he played between 1989 and 2001, where DL players were nowhere close to as big as they are now. Furthermore, he LIVED in the weight room and it was well known that he could bench and squat more than his 300 pound teammates. Chris Meyers is not that center. Meyers is not a Stepnoski.
