Sometimes, it’s the little things that matter.

All the talk we hear about zone vs. man blocking, line splits, physique, and yet it’s thoughts like this that make you consider how a position coach can get the most out of his offensive linemen.

Maybe that’s something else that’s been affected by having three line coaches in the last three seasons.  Just sayin’.

    I believe it. Especially in short yardage situations. If you can’t get under your opponents pads and get a little leverage, you can’t move him enough no matter how strong you are because that guy is strong, too.

      It’s the physics problem of force vs mass…you must have a target on your opposing lineman to attack in order to maximize your force or thrust of your body. This is the way size differintials can be equalized. Any moving of your opponent, however slight, can give the back the opening he can capitalize on. You don’t have to pancake your opponent just move him, slide him in the chosen direction. His momentum can be used to your advantage if you stay low and hit your target.

    Some of the guys on the OL last year had the textbook stance for DB ready to backpedal

    Can’t wait for this to become a meme and Seth ask Kirby about it during a presser.

      I’ve never liked our line spacing. To my eyes,we’re too bunched up, too close. But then again, i haven’t played on the line since high school in 1979.

    Well for sure we have been doing something wrong for a few years. I worry about the offensive line but the defensive line in the red zone flat scares me to death. The easy with which TD’s were made inside the 20 on us was disturbing. Kirby apparently didn’t have to worry about anyone getting in the red zone at Bama, because he sure didn’t have an answer for it. Here’s hoping one of our staff has some idea how to improve there.
