Some details on Vollmer's play in the Titan's game. It seems to me that what might be the thing that Vollmer has to work on the most would be to hold or pursue his blocks longer. My very uneducated guess would be to wonder if he has progressed quite yet from college play where holding blocks for a longer time is not quite as critical. I'll mention a few key plays and then summarize the rest. My comments don't include the 4th quarter where play may not have been as intense. Q1-6:00 = he pulled right and through the line and took out the MLB which was critical to Maroney getting through for his TD run. Q2-6:45 = very good PP (pass protection) - stood up his block and then slid out to pick up blitzer Q3-12:22 = very good run block - Maroney got 10+ yards with his block. Here is one case where I wonder if coaches will work with him on maintaining his block. Maroney eventually cut back towards Vollmer and he re-engaged his guy but not soon enough to prevent his guy from stopping Maroney. Q3-11:45 = average to poor RB (run block) - let his guy slip loose at end to get a hand on Maroney - still 4 yd run Q3-6:57 (Hoyer) = excellent screen block - got all the way out really quickly to block LB out of screen to Edelman - sprang him for 17 yd gain Q3-6:15 = OK run block - picked up block well but then let up on his guy a little and by the time he re-engaged his guy got a piece of Maroney - still 5 yd run Q3-4:16 = I think I saw this one mentioned in other posts - screen on right side to Maroney- there was a blitzer that made Vollmer hesitate and he didn't get his block who went by him on Vollmer's right side unimpeded all the way through to make the tackle on Maroney on the other side Q3-2:52 = WR screen to the left - another excellent block - great range and speed to come out to take out the LB to spring Welker for 14 yds - I could nitpick and say that if he had held his block longer his guy wouldn't have got a tackle assist on Welker when Welker was slowed down by another contact. Q3-2:16 = good pulling block to take out LB Q3-0:54 = Vollmer pancaked his block and Hoyer went over top of Vollmer (and Mankins) for the goal line plunge TD So 3 key positive plays in the TD drive - other plays in the drive NOT listed above were: 2 good pass protections, an OK run block, and a good run block. Summarizing plays NOT mentioned above for Q1 through Q3: 3 excellent/very good pass protection (exceptional blitz pick up, or kept protection with Brady moving around, or similar) 22 good pass protection (Brady had good time) 8 OK pass protection (if Brady hadn't gotten the ball off quickly, there might have been a problem - one, however was a TD - lol) 1 poor but adequate pass protection 4 excellent/very good run blocks 2 good run blocks 3 OK run blocks 2 poor run blocks 1 OK screen pass block All in all it doesn't seem like a bad days work. Tampa Bay and Miami Vollmer review later.
