Cable is a great coach and will evolve and adapt as well as any coach in the league. We have some very talented olinemen that will adjust just fine. This also means Clem, Mebane, Wags or whoever is less likely to be dropped for the season because of getting cut at the knees.
How is a small running back going to be able to block for the qb? Most go low. This will change the game. You will see more tight ends and fullbacks on the roster.
Now that I don't mind because RBs throw those blocks on suspecting guys charging the backfield and there is a chance for the defender to protect himself with his hands.
As an example, what I don't like is lets say on sunday Clem is carrying out backside responsibilities sliding down the LOS scrimmage to get Bush on a run to the other side, Clem is focused on the ball carrier and Incognito is within the rules to missile his body into Clem's knees. Our guys do it too, about as well as anyone in the game, and I am not knocking olinemen because currently they are allowed to - I just wont miss it if it leaves. So many rules to protect the O and their coconuts, maybe protect some defensive players knees while we are at it. Just IMO.
I played juco hoops and we always pressed full court, and though it was within the rules nothing infuriated me more than when the PG would run me full speed into a blindside midcourt screen. I've always been of the opinion of its a mans game lets play straight up and honest.
