A Note about Jake Long getting "Plowed"



I don't know if anyone else saw it, but for what it's worth, John Abraham actually came at Jake Long with his head down and speared him helmet to helmet (Top of Abraham's helmet into lower portion of Long's face mask). It popped Jake's helmet back into his neck and caused his legs to buckle. This is actually an illegal defensive maneuver and it clearly wasn't called by refs.

He was not plowed over by typical arm-to-arm combat. I was not in front of a TV when he gave up the second sack, so I can't comment on it. However, in the first half I thought Jake actually looked quite good against JA, and the commentators did as well. It wasn't until that helmet-popup-crack that Long was shaken up and the commentators really started praising Abraham.

 

Anyhow, I'm much more concerned about Vernon Carey's Passblocking, and the whole OLine's lack of push against a smaller, faster DLine. Typically in matchups of Power vs. Speed, the Power line wins against the run while the Speed Line wins against the pass. Hopefully our new O-Line coach from NYG will get these guys situated, or at least be honest with the trifecta about which members of our O-Line aren't worth the Paycheck. We've got too much cash invested in these guys for that kind of performance to EVER be permissible.
