from the Sun-sentinel "Guest Blogger" a Joe W. who does great analysis.
It is a great read. Here's a sample:
Offensive Line – The fact that we’re in the top 3 in rushing yards per game and total yards tells you everything about this groups improvement. Jake Grove and Donald Thomas are huge upgrades over the players that were in the lineup last year. Coaches always talk about getting a “hat on a hat” in the run game, meaning a blocker on each defender. Well, when you pause the tape on our running plays you can start counting the “hats on hats” and it goes 5, 6, 7 sometimes 8 deep with guys that are effectively blocking their assigned defender. Donald Thomas pulled a lot more in this game than I think I’ve seen in the past. I’m not sure if that’s because of something with Smiley’s shoulder or just switching it up. I have to say that I almost never notice Smiley missing a block. Over the past 2 years, he’s been like the invisible man of the O Line, and that’s a good thing. D. Thomas is a road grader of a run blocker, but he has to get better in pass protection. I’ve noted several times this year that he’s allowed pressures or hits on the QB. He has a bad habit of allowing defenders to cross his face and get up the middle where QB’s hate pressure. He needs to step it up. V. Carey wasn’t too bad in this game, but he did allow a pressure, QB hit, a false start and missed a down block near the goal line in the first half. He left the game with what appeared to be a knee injury, but came right back in the next play. I have to give him kudos for that because he seems to be battling some sort of knee issue because he was on the injury report last week.
