Does anyone have any pictures/video of Denard's block on the end around? That was awesome to see, and I could tell Denard enjoyed getting a chance to dole out punishment.
this may be of some local interest
It was funny to watch on the replay. He just throws his whole body at that lineman, who barely gets lifted off one foot. The big fella was probably thinking "da fuck?"
I love Denard's enthusiasm for getting physical, but Denard blocking is not behavior I want to see encouraged. We need the guy in one piece.
Seeing as his tremendous block essentially allowed the run to make it passed the line of scrimmage (and go for a good gain), in this situation I disagree
I thought that was a great play. Obviously Denard Robinson is not going to knock a 300+ lb lineman to the ground, but he kept him away from the ball and that's what's important. You could tell he got a bit of a kick out of it, too.
Having said that, I hope we never ever see such a thing ever again.
It looked pretty innocent to me. He threw his body into the guy and bounced off. I think Denard has less chance of injury when he's delivering the blow, especially at relatively low speed.
It looked like they both laughed about it afterwards too. They were both probably thinking "Whoa, what the hell??"
you could see the lineman look at Denard afterward and give the "wtf?" arm schrug. haha i was laughing so hard when that happened.
Denard gave that lineman a "good game"
I think Denard's smile almost made the DT fall over.
I thought Denard got great leverage on the guy.
Denard clearly exploited his pad level advantage on the play.
If that lineman was 40 pounds lighter, he woulda been planted on his ass.
I thought this thread was going to be about Denard planning where to place actors on stage for his theater class.
I am disappoint.
I thought it was a great block and he wasn't a replica of a fly either. He did get great leverage but moved that big SOB pretty damn well regardless of the leverage. Great team play.
He was doing his best to make the play a success. I think the big guy had a laugh afterwards though.
Just another episode on the way to a Great win for my favorite team of all time (team 132)!
I believe his (in-)ability to block and get physical with linemen was what set Denard apart from Cam Newton's season at Auburn. Cam single-handedly stopped an interception from turning into pick-6 situation couple of time (Andrew Luck did too, atleast once). If Denard can work on better upper body strength, I think the team can benefit from it a lot. He will perhaps also need those blocking skills if he gets picked in NFL as a WR or a RB down the road.
