Thread: Did anyone see what caused DD to chop block Pouncey?

  1. #1

    Did anyone see what caused DD to chop block Pouncey?

    I only saw one replay, but it seemed like no one pushed him into Pouncey, he just sort of dove at his knees while he was wrestling with someone up top. Did anyone see a replay that showed what really happened?


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Yes, he dove at the side of a defensive lineman around 5 feet from him and hit Pouncey instead.
    Poorly executed, cheap shot which back fired.

    I don't even think the DL was that close...

    Overrated guard playing football with his eyes closed, what else could it be.

    5 feet was being generous.

    That sorta thing is a core tenet of zone blocking. Eff it, I say.
