Lost in all the blowouts and our general dismay has been the play of our new first round rookie Nose Tackle. I know that some folks were impressed with his play in the first game. However, I haven't really heard anything about his game against Buffalo.
I see on the stats that he had 2 solo tackles, one assist, and one pass deflection against Buffalo. Not too shabby, especially given the guarded expectations many of us have had about him going into his rookie year.
Has anyone taken a closer look at his snaps? What are people seeing from him? Is he occupying double teams? Is he getting penetration? How is his tackling? How does his technique look?
I don't really have the skills or the resources to go back and watch this sort of thing, but would LOVE to read the thoughts of some of you folks.
