You have a point. He was MILLIONS cheaper and we got better production.

Man after watching that Arian video our O-line is really effing fast. I saw Meyers almost staying stride for stride with Arian on one of his long runs.

Our O-line, Wade Smith, Chris Meyers were literally playing out of their minds and channeling some hot oldschool 90's broncos stuff.

I took out the "m." and it still doesn't work!

But it doesn't matter.
I can still find the play when I have a little more time.
I still have the game,
At any rate, thanks for the help!

I have to disagree with you, Rey.
That was a great block by Leach!
(Watching it on youtube is much more difficult to see than when you can watch it in super-slo-mo.)

Nice hook block by Myers allowed Caldwell to get up to the second level on the ILB and seal off the inside.
Leach watched to see if he needed to help Winston; he didn't have to so he went upfield where he sized up the SS Branch.
Branch wanted to go inside; Leach took him to the outside cleanly.
This gave Foster the shortest route to the end zone (inside).
That was smart and great blocking, IMHO.

Ok well I disagree. It was a regular block. Nothing spectacular about it.

It was a good block yes, spectacular. Heck no.

Thanks, Anthony (I would never have figured it out, LOL!)
I'll watch it tomorrow!

I was wanting to see the play where Rey said Leach was blown up by the Jet LB.

(I've seen Leach lost a few here and there) but if Rey was reffering to the one-yard loss by Ward around the 11-min mark in the second quarter, then it wasn't one of those times.

If Leach had let Branch go inside, he could have demolished him (Branch).
But that would force Foster to cut outside, which would have given time for pursuit to get there.
That is what I saw.

No.

Leach was knocked on his ass and damn near kept foster from scoring.

Foster stretched his arm out and got the td.

There really is no mistaking it. It looked very un hammerish on that play.

I'm not saying leach sucked. I just think he was way over hyped because he was a fan favorite. Lots of fb's make the blocks he made.

Vickers is a better overall player IMO. I think he'll actually bring more in the blocking arena and making plays with the ball in his hand it's not even close.

Just looked like a fb running in the hole and picking up the first opposite jersey he saw.

As a blocker you can't see the rb.

In the zbs you take your steps, but if a defender crosses your face you "take them where they want to go" which really means just push them past the hole.

It's up to the rb to make the right cut off of your block.

My point is that I dont think vonta analyzed the play like you think he did. I think he just picked up the guy the best way he could. He did a good job of doing that.

Are you talking about the Jets game this year?
Foster's TD in the fourth quarter?

I went back and watched it again.

Leach just basically gets in his way. It's not a real solid hit and he certainly didn't kick him out.

Arian just accelerated and ran past the guy.

Look vonta was solid. But Arian was amazing. Go back and look at his runs. Dude runs like a video game except better.

I had forgotten how good he was. His vision and acceleration in and out if his cuts is top notch. As a blocker he makes your job a whole lot easier. Just put a hat on a guy and Arian usually made the right cut and got positive yards. If a guy wants to run a certain way you just ride him and burry him and Arian will make the cut off of what you did.

No disrespect to vonta but Arian is the effin man. He needs to thank him for bringing him notoriety.
