Why does ETN have such a hard time with blocking assignments


Posted: Jan 2, 2018 1:39 PM
 

is it really that complicated? Early on, I didnt think it was a big deal because he was just starting to play. But now, even after game 14, he still doesnt seem to be getting it.


Didn't DJ Howard get all those snap when

Gallman was a REDSHIRT freshman because of pass protection ?


Not just ETN. Feaster isn't much of a blocker either

sooooo....use their running skills so that they don't have to block as much.

A lot of those weren't really his fault. His job was to pick up interior blitzers and while he was holding the gaps someone came loose on the edge. It was our OL being bad last night, ETN did miss a couple but he was in the correct position most of the time.

There was one that he looked up and seen 3 Bama players in the face of the QB, he kind of just went and put his body in there but there wasn't anything he could do. it was right after he came back into the game after leaving with a head injury. Did they every say what his head injury was? Go Tigers.

He had a possible concussion. When that happens you go into concussion protocol and it can take a while, ultimately the medical staff felt 100% sure he did not have one and was able to return to play.

Each defense has different looks, and will change tendencies to confuse players. Experience matters. He'll get better as he goes along.

What's great about him is how far along he has come and his willingness to take a hit and to give a hit. He knocked the crap out of a guy last night on a downfield block.

Not worried about him at all.

He was a true freshmen going against a front 7 full of grown men that will be playing in the NFL soon.

Well, for starters, he CLEARLY had a concussion and we still played him. he didn't know where he was and we expected him to block.. That's on the coaches right there..


have you shared what you know with Robert Mueller?***

Really? You could diagnose that from the stands or TV? Your one hellava doctor. Just because you’ve gotten your bell rung and are a little loopy doesn’t mean you’ve had a concussion.


You shouldn’t be accusing the medical staff of unethical and fireable offenses unless your 100% sure of the facts.


Because he was never taught how to do it before he got to

Clemson. He doesn’t have good form or technique and he’s not good at reading who he suppose to block.


He is a kid and needs to develope

High school says he never asked him to do that so there is a learning curve there. He’ll get it. Give him time


I noticed he looked a little timid on a few plays. It might
