I'm gonna say nate blew the block because he's new and just got lost out there. not all, but a large portion of our team is just not dialed in this year. it falls on various levels from head coach, coordinator, position coach, team captains and veterans in the position group, and then down to the player himself. it isn't ron's job to be staying with nate or any other specific player and make sure they're up and motivated for every play and every snap of practice. ron has shown himself to be a delegator and he has shown that he puts huge amounts of trust in others to be accountable and fix their mistakes. our o-line coach is supposed to be a good one and the way he has had to cobble o-lines together for us out of scraps and we somehow have managed to win games shows hes a good coach. Maybe Kalil isn't lighting a fire under the o-line well enough or maybe nate is just only so experienced and will continue to see and learn things he has to fail at before he succeeds.
i firmly believe our coaches are giving our guys the best tools they can give them to be successful in practice. games can be difficult to call sometimes but there are always plays before the questionable ones that our guys didn't execute properly.
we need some passion and we need some urgency. i personally think that has to come from the players.
