I know, right? I should try to find video of that play and see how much time KA had before the hit. What’s considered good pass blocking? 3-4 seconds? More?
I noticed the tackle who got beat and was on the ground, I think it was Josh Jones, slapped his hand on turf just as Allen was about to get hit. In my day we called that a ‘Look Out!’ block. I wonder if he slipped.
I was an RB in Division II a LONG time ago and if I remember correctly, the O-linemen are supposed to adjust to the rush, by sliding in either direction and double teaming or something like that. On this play, our center and both guards just stood there. It was perhaps the most pathetic offensive play of the day for me.
I thought our O-line was improved over last year but after 3 games averaging 130-ish on the ground, I’m beginning to wonder. But, I still think our pass blocking is better in spite of this play. Last year Ward, Jr. was running for his life on almost every pass play and that isn’t happening, thankfully, so far this year.
