    Well they are definitely working on zone blocking for the O-line. Smith's attitude sounds good.

    Hey, what do you expect from a guy named Toole?

    I had worked up a Q&A for Pendry for my next Voice column (zone blocking for dummies) but I just got turned down. He didn't want to leak any state secrets. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

    On a 610 am sound bite, Wade just said he thought the line was going to be great and that once they had the zone blocking down "no one is going to be able to stop us." Good to hear the enthusiasm--sounds like O-line is liking the zone blocking.

    Ya, I am glad to see they are taking to this like a fish to water. Zone blocking I do believe tends to favor quickness, and athletism over size, bulk, and muscle. I think that fits us pretty well. Mckinney is one guy that is a guaranteed starter that I can see this blocking scheme helping. All I know is look at Denver. If we get results close to what they have gotten over the years, I'll be one happy camper. :~ :banana:

    Just read a report that fox26 reported that Walker and Wade got into it today. It was broken up by McKinney.

    Again? I know they got into it yesterday as well. Good to see they are both going hard this early... I like the intensity.
    On a related note, I am really stoked that Walker re-signed... he brings that nasty attitude we need on our D.

    I am sure they will work it out. I think that the zone blocking should improve the situation on the OL. The OL needs to be more consistant this year.

    I like the Oline really taking to the zone blocking but I sure hope DDavis is able to read it well. I really want him to have a great year this year and judging his sophmore year would have to take this new blocking scheme into consideration.
