whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.. you think its the zone blocking?

1. the zone blocking has worked fine so far. It worked awesomely in the first two games.. and it worked well enough for Wells in the oakland game.

2. Our RBs have had no trouble putting up good rushing stats behind our current Oline. as i said.. DD did fine in the first two games.. Wells did good against Oakland.

3. There is a very simple reason why DD isnt finding holes.. its because he has happy feet behind the line of scrimmage.. he isnt just rocketing into the hole like he used to.. he is taking too long. I dont know if it is because he is worried about dropping the ball or what.. but watch the games again.. there are SO MANY time where he is shuffling around behind the line.. then tries to hit a hole and just gets ganked.

4. The last game against the Vikes didnt seem to use zone blocking.. at least not in the way we saw it used before. Instead of the whole line moving left or right and DD cutting back into a hole.. they just moved forward and DD tried to power through.. not his strongest point.


DD isnt a bust yet.. but he needs to get it together. Either that, or we need to use him differently.
