That's why you don't apply the same logic. Might be a lot to ask but looking at context usually helps.
The move back to RT was supposed to salvage Free after seeing him be whipped at LT.
It hasn't. I really wish Dallas didn't have to take the cap hit to put someone else in there next season.
As far as Jason's comments, they're stupid.
Where are the coaches to give him the technical aspect he's supposedly been lacking for who knows how long? Callahan not big on technical stuff?
Where's the HC to instill the demeanor in him that he's missing? Whatever happened to the "right approach"? Letting a guy be mentally weak and lazy is the right approach?
Doug Free has been playing LT for 2 years, we the fans and the media severely underestimated how easy it would be for him to go back to RT.
On top of that he had the presence of Kyle Kosier next to when he was there in 2010, but when Kosier went to the right side to help Smith, I find it no coincidence that Free struggled again.
Neither tackle can handle power rushers, and that seems to be OK with the way the Cowboys want to set the pocket.
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
