Kuechly was caught flatfooted and paid for it. He would have been better served continuing downhill – once he stopped – he paid more attention to Sims shoulder then his midsection. Buying the shoulder fake and then was leaning. Flatfooted, leaning and ultimately out of position. Bad combination….
Its amazing how much easier offense looks when you have a player that has some speed and can make someone miss. Doug Martin would have done his chicken dance, standing up straight, wobbling his head then crashed full speed into the games best MLB for an additional 1 yard gain.
BTW as an aside, it is worth saying that that little sprint draw has been by far our most effective running play over the last few weeks. I think most of our best runs have come from that play. Plays to the strength of our OL because hey don’t have to move anyone the play just says let your guy beat your to this side as opposed to that side.
