Greene 4th and 1: Lex Hilliard, Inside Run?


Not much commentary here. Down 7, 2nd quarter, on the 30. A chance to redeem Sanchez's near-red-zone INT - still very much a game. I'm not sure if the coaching staff has designed extreme inside runs - I've notice this in other games with both Tebow and McKnight - right off of center, or the backs lack all instinct, but the fault of this play seems to be on Lex Hilliard (can't see his number, but it looks like him) who doesn't meet the linebacker in the hole. Rather he crams inside right behind Howard's excellent inside push, fails to block Rivera (I believe), and Greene follows right behind him in a pile up, tackled by the LB Hilliard should have had.. You can see Hilliard is completely swallowed by the play in the second frame.

A better back could have cut back and had a chance, perhaps, but this play is on Hilliard as far as I can tell (and maybe on coach direction).
