We adjusted, and defense's couldn't do a thing after that. It's here and it's here to stay. And it's awesome. The only thing defense's can do is if they change their entire personnel on the Dline to include two massive, All-Pro, DTs (more in the mold of NTs) in the middle and two very fast, All-Pro, DEs on the edges in an attempt to take both the QB hitting the edges and RB up the middle out. That's going to be very hard to do, though.
With you on the first paragraph. All someone has to do is watch that second dallas game and see what the play did to ware. I dont like them running it like army or navy does...but they dont anymore.
