I get it with Hoke, always want to keep pushing the guys in his pressers by keeping on them. When he does it with the defense, you sort of chuckle since the guy is looking for zero yards period from a unit that is playing pretty darn well. That group has been put in position to succeed by the staff and those guys have responded.
However, we also keep getting the same type of comments in terms of run blocking not being great. While we are not Road Grader U, we also have some talent on the line which includes a first round left tackle. I don't mind pushing our linemen, but I also don't feel we provide them any help with our play selection or having our running backs regularly hitting the proper hole. You can only hope to out execute a defense so much when they are running downhill at you and not having to pay for it. Has our line been perfect, no, but there are parts to work with. I am not sure the blame can just be laid on their run blocking abilities. I am interested in what the rest of the board thinks.
