Maybe he meant OT? That would make a lot more sense. He kept typing DT though, so I'm not sure.

Yeah I guess I'm in the minority not understanding why a defensive end would try to beat a defensive tackle to the qb

Don't worry about it. Those who can, will understand. Those who can't should move on and read what they do understand. Life is much simpler that way.

You need to be seen and not heard. It is not a DE's job to engage a DT. It is to elude the DT and get to the QB or RB.

dude got owned...stop making excuses.

Yes hawkins is bigger, hunter is plenty big enough to get over on someone who is bigger than he is physically.


You need to be seen and not heard. It is not a DE's job to engage a DT. It is to elude the DT and get to the QB or RB. The Big Cat drill is not how a DE plays the game. And only a knucklehead would infer how good a DE is from the drill. The drill neutralized a player's speed and elusiveness and over emphasizes size and strength. It sort of like the same advantage a DE would have against a DT in a foot race. And some dummy claiming the DT was no good because he lost a foot race to a DE.

Nick Marshall ran a variation of this PA bubble screen last season. It was pretty effective against UGA IIRC.

I guess we know why you didn't last long. If you think the d lineman has the advantage in this drill you're pretty dumb. A speed DE's whole game deals with using moves and getting around the Tackle, not going through them. Unless of course they can get them in a bad position and just bull rush them. If it's just straight man on man and you have to go straight up against the other guy, a big OT should beat a speed DE every time.

If we are talking a Nose Tackle or a DT it's a little different.

a d end beats the tackle with stunts and or being faster than the tackle....they will never win a match up lining up directly in front of an offensive tackle and taking him head on. d ends make a living on sacks and tackles for loss and they do this by beating the tackle around the edge or shooting a gap why do d ends line up outside of of the offensive tackle?


These aren't the big 290-300lbs DEs you see on 3-4 defenses and some 4-3 defenses. Guys like Hunter would be a LB in 3-4 defenses. Hell, he would be an LB in an NFL sized 4-3 defense.

DEs this light aren't usually very good in run defense, as they usually just try not to get washed down the line or pancaked. Also Hawkins is pretty strong and had perfect technique.

Hawkins is great.

I'm excited for Adams' future.

That's why it's an option play. Can't remember what QB replays I was watching a week ago that used it several times in a game last year. You can fake the run and lateral it back, or take the ball and run with it.

Everyone agrees with you. The defender has advantages compared to a defender playing under the rules of a game or scrimmage.

Thus it is a drill in which compared to a game or scrimmage that the defense has advantages working in their favor.

Why? The defensive player has NO advantage compared to the offensive player in this drill. None.

I don't care that you played in the NFL for three years as an offensive lineman. The laws of physics still apply.

Let me ask you some questions.

Who would win if Jerald Hawkins played as a D lineman against La'el Collins as an O lineman? Why?

Who would win if Welter played against Brumfield? Why?

:lol:

Very few. Hawkins is a genetic freak. He has more potential than the majority of other SEC players. Many other SEC players played more than one sport in high school. Hawkins played four sports and dominated each one.

Because offensive players are pussies and only have the snap count in their favor? Because that's about all I get out of this statement....

Just curious, who was the most difficult NFL player you had to block?
Mr. Wayne - 18 months
The advantages you mentioned are true, but they are more of an equalizer. The Olineman has these as well. Defender can't get around / rip through the OL like they are trained to do. They have to try to go straight though them. It's size, strength, and leverage versus size, strength, and levererage. Hunter could have won this had he gotten lower the Alexander and driven him up and ultimately back. But he hit him on a similar level and Hawkins size and strength pushed Hunter. No one really has an advantage here.

I played in the NFL for three years as an offensive lineman and am telling you the defensive man (especially lineman) should win in this drill.
