O-line is pathetic. Reggie is dancing. Sherman has no idea how to get him in space.
Yep, each week it's becoming more and more apparent that our offensive linemen are oversized and not athletic enough to execute the scheme our staff wants.
To make matters worse, the staff stubbornly won't adjust the scheme to fit what we actually can execute. And you're right, Reggie is dancing. The zone rushing requires quick decisive one cut moves in order to hit the hole with speed so you can get into the open field and do damage.
The only guy I see that gets it is Miller, but he isn't quite there yet with his pass protection, something we sorely need right now due to the ineffectiveness of our o-line.
It also doesn't help that teams are putting seven and eight guys in the box to gum up the rushing lanes.
