In an article written by Ben Muth
, the guy who regularly breaks down OL play, he ended up breaking down the SF-SEA game, and remarking more about the job our safeties did in run support than the 49ers OL did in blocking.
Look at where Thomas (circled) is above. He’s meeting a fullback on the line of scrimmage and keeping his outside arm free in the process. That’s a strong play for a two-down linebacker, so to see it from a safety that’s dynamic in coverage is pretty unreal. He’s even more aggressive downhill than Wright is on this play.
And the two breakdowns of the SEA-WAS game:This one has a lot more picture breakdowns....While this one has more DVOA styled breakdowns........
Enjoy! Go Hawks!
