Yep long Akers run all in McCloud. Dives into the pile with a shoulder instead of using his arms to wrap up. It was an easy tackle. He did that on several other occasions. Someone please tell me the dude is hurt because that was horrendous.Overpursuing by the LB's, Redwine losing the edge on on e of the long runs, and McCloud trying to lay a lick instead of wrapping on Akers long run at the end of the game. All discipline stuff.
Good thing Akers isn't cook< he would have been gone on a few of thoseMissed tackles, overpursueing, wrong gaps, etc.
It's going to happen in an aggressive defense. We still have to play contain and some players are not doing it and getting caught out of position. Joe Jackson and McCloud missed the tackle on the Akers big run. Jackson had his ankle(so he really didn't miss it) and McCloud knocked him loose. Jackson lost contain on a few of Patrick's big runs and I saw Redwine lose containment and went inside. It's simple things like that that need to get cleaned up especially against this triple option bs
[video=youtube;du6BIDuQhkw]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=du6BIDuQhkw[/video]Can someone explain what they think is wrong? I don't understand it. We have a deep defensive line full of talented players. Our starting linebackers are good. What's the problem? Scheme? Freelancing?
Yep.On about 80 of FSU’s rushing yards, one long run by Patrick Joe Jackson was held badly by the TE, it allowed Patrick to cut back with no one there. Another long run by Akers had Shaq in the hole, but got held by a OL at the 2nd level, allowing Akers to run by him. Shaq’s Jersey is hanging at the shoulder when Akers runs by clear as day.

I don't get it. It's the same players! How could they look so much better against the run last year?
