    So why the difference this time around?

    What a weird spin that you have tried to put on this. I remember a couple people, including you and me, who questioned whether Loadholt would even start. But now you are going to call out others for quitting on the young PL early?

    Furthermore, Loadholt has a been a pleasant surprise, but it also sounds like they have made an effort to simplify blocking schemes for our young OL.

    I think a few people have summed it up pretty well here.

    Our offense does not have to have an even amount of runs and passes every game to be balanced. It does not have to end with 225 yards passing and 155 yards rushing to be balanced.

    Our offense is balanced because if you allow All Day to do so, he will gash you for 150+, but if you focus and take him away, we can hit you for 250+ in the air. And we can do both VERY efficiently.

    As of now, you have to pick your poison with us. And I imagine it is going to continue to get better as Favre grows more comfortable and as Harvin gets more and more acclimated to the NFL.

    It's amazing how sensible arguments become if one can simply acknowledge the opposing defense's strengths and credit them for it, rather than looking at a stat sheet and pointing fingers internally.

    Spin, ...... :
    Course I didn't want him to play.
    Didn't want Sully either. Thought there was a better Vets available that they could've brought in.


    Doesn't mean I think it is/was time to throw him under the bus as some were already starting to chant at week 2.
    Been pretty vocal about giving them more time to learn as well.

    Please, please, don't try to put your spin on what I post that make it look like I am changing my position, a position by the way, that was way back in FA, hell pre-draft for that matter.


    LOL, better attempt by you would to have gone back a few months ago and find some posts by me were I thought at least 3 other OL in the draft were better than him..........

    Did you all miss this?
    :
    I imagine they can do quite a few more things this year now that Cook isn't in the lineup.
    You do realize that "Track Blocking" or "Railroading" is a simplification of the ZB scheme right? :
    Yes, but they also require contact, which is something Cook avoided if at all possible. They also require additional thought processes,which would not be in his favor.

    I believe the track blocking is a result of the size of the linemen and that they may be better suited for that style of play.

    You and Cook.
    ;D

    Good point on the size of the OLmen though.
    Thought of that as well.
    Kindof discounted it though cause they (the coaching staff) continued to use the more complex scheme even though Big Mac/Cook (he is only just a bit smaller than PL) were struggling with it.

    Naw, there is something else afoot that isn't quite clear.
    I am not sure what it is, but my guess is that somehow that scheme shift will come into play when we start to see the Wildcat come into play.

    The ZB scheme we run sure has alot of seals in it were a lineman has to basically block off one side of the field.
    Best way to get holding penalties is to shift the flow behind the line.
    Start doing double reverse handoffs and someone is gonna appear to be holding based on how he is engaged with his blocking assignment.


    Only thing that makes sense.
    Wish Del was doing that damn line breakdown he promised.
    ;D
