    That's pretty nice balance on the run (though right tackle only had 1 run - effective, but only 1)

    That's interesting - I wonder what they base that on. I know the numbers at each spot in our database match the ones shown in the official NFL directional splits, so I wonder how they came to that total?

    That's a lot of running behind Donald Thomas, and they were pulling him quite a bit as well.

    Seems like it was a "show me" game for him.

    Kid showed up. Got beat maybe three times, pancakes his man as many if not more though. Only gripe would be playing through the whistle. He tends to quit on plays early. Instill some nasty in him and we have ourselves a real gamer.
