Watch the videos again, and this time pick up on our defensive ends taking on a single lineman, and getting their arses kicked. This is an intriguing comparison, albeit a far from representative sample set - but you cannot ignore that when Spears and Canty were "allowed" to get up field, they could not. On the contrary, you see San Diego's linemen blowing their guys up and getting inside. Slanting the defensive linemen isn't some be-all end-all. The linemen need talent.
I don't think that's true at all. But we could go in circles for hours on that and I've got work to do.
