Here’s A. J. Hicks...

Just a few plays that I noticed in the game when I rewatched.

There was a screen early in the game (I think to Woods) and out in front was Noteboom, Blythe, Corbett. That looked like a wall moving down the field and they all landed excellent blocks.

Rob had a play that was very savvy on a running play. His guy beat him and bull rushed him initially. He locked onto the guy and pulled him out of the hole. I don't think I've ever noticed a block like this. He pulled him into the backfield and out of the hole. The defender eventually falling down because he was being pulled forward.

Late in the game we went with a run that was a real power run. Whitworth pushed his dude 10 yards up the field and had Malcolm fall at his ankles. Whitworth was pumped! Turned to the sideline and motioned like keep calling this @#$%&.



Here’s more TexasRam...

Thanks for posting. I notice PFF often does lazy grading without justification. Not that I provided details either.

But Corbett had a really great showing. He will need a little work in resetting to counter pass pro moves but I dare anyone to watch the game play by play and carefully watch Corbett. His run game work was really strong with excellent push and sometimes destroying folks. Trust me I was a critic of him last year so I dont just give Fandom praise.

Whitworth did destroy in the run game as well. Not only does he lock on and take guys completely out of the play but his anticipation on where the defender and carefully getting in perfect position to take the guy out of the play is a clinic. For an old dude it is crazy to see how physical he gets banging inside and rooting out his guy. Hopefully he holds up.

I honestly don't see anyway Noteboom is going to be a LT in the future, he has so so far to go with his hand usage. The talent is there with the smarts and feet and now more bulk. But geez man he can't hold on to his guy after initial contact.

  It's a long term decision. He is being groomed to be LOT, not LG.
