    How can a dude impress so greatly and fail so badly in the same play.
    I noticed on rewatch Green got to the second level on a few plays a lot quicker than maybe he should have...i.e. his first block didn't do much to slow down the defender. That's coachable, the quicks aren't.

    It was drawn up nicely, and I don't know of a center that gets that deep so fast.

    Vet DB just juked the rookie out of position.
    Rewatching the clip, just before the DB moved, Clay cut that way. Had he waited just a second longer, Green reaches the DB and blocks him. that was tough though because he was being tracked down so he may have been taken down anyway had he not cut right.

    Reminds me of an old basketball adage. You can teach fundamentals but you can't teach tall.

    Yes That should have been a TD. And IIRC we only got a fg out of that drive. Lost 4 points

    You do recall correctly, it was a FG. As we move forward, Oline cohesion, building confidence, four rookies starting on O, we should see some of those stalled drives turn into scores.

    If Claypool doesn’t outrun Green its a TD.

    Always frustrating to watch a player run past a blocker into a defender. A slight hesitation and he walks into the endzone
    Tomlin’s coming back so what can you do?

    That is the growing pains you go through when you play a bunch of kids. We hope that Claypool has learned a lesson. I'm glad he learned his lesson in a win, and not a loss that was caused by a mistake. As a team that is historically known as one that doesn't often start kids, we have missed out on seeing this type of thing. We watch the highlights of other teams and their young stars and wish that was our guys, but we don't break down their games the way we do Steeler games and notice that this (and much worse) is typical of playing kids.

    BTW, I can just imagine the film review of Sunday's game when that play comes up and one of the coaches is standing up at the screen pointing out that block. PF must have felt pretty good with the round of laughs, cheers, and pats on the back he got from his teammates.
