They OL don't execute well in 2 ways:
First, on some plays, they flat out miss their assignments. that's mental.
Second, on other plays, they engage the right defenders but then the defense wins the battle.
My question what that second part is how much of it is truly physical -- meaning that they get outpowered, strength-wise by the defense -- versus mental - meaning that they lose the battle because of poor technique, leverage, hand placement, etc.
That's the right, tough follow-up question to be asking the head coach when he says the OL gets beaten phusically. Unfortunatley we cna nver count on the Dallas local media to think of and ask these tough follow-up questions.
