He said that getting below the knees will allow the defender to jump over you. That's the problem with it.

Could it be that our historical weak point suddenly becomes a strong point? This season will be very interesting, one way or the other.

Default Re: ESPN article and video on cut blocking

I don't think the problem with cut blocking is performing it legally. If performed correctly, it isn't so bad.

Its just that if you use it regularly in a game, and even with the best of intentions, a quick move by the D can suddenly cause your eye to eye front faced cut into a back cut and cause serious injury

I get that its all in the name of competition, and this is football after all, not basketball or something. But at the same time, if there is a maneuver that is so risky they don't ever practice it on their own guys, doesn't that seem a little cheap?

Im just glad we're the ones using it, and not one of the other tems in the division. I never cheer when a player gets injured, but if its Haynesworth this year, I can't say I'll be too disapointed

Schlereth also explains OLineman would only use the technique on the backside of the play and not onside or play side. The X-Bronco player does a great job in the video.
You're correct..........he's stating that this area is the most consistently effective for targeting. On the other hand, I was trying to make the point that cut blocking can occur below the knee..........and still be a legal block.

When you stick your helmet between their knees, now that's a problem. Just ask TJ.

We also don't allow the QB to be touched...

We don't wan't our DB's taking recievers legs from under neath them if they have to make jumping catches...

We also have a bunch of non-contact practices so no one has a higher risk of injury...

There are a bunch of precautionary measures taken at practice that are designed to keep your team healthy...

Doesn't make the team "dirty" because they'd rather not go full out against their own guys...
