How about switching Green and Collins? They both are sub-par thus far.
Just run behind Tyron, Zeke hasn't even gone there yet. All is good.
Just my opinion, but I'm not seeing Collins as "sub-par".
My observations greatly differ from PFF on that subject.
Based on the caliber of pass rushers he's faced early on, I'm happy with the work he's done.
The area that concerns me is when he has to face a good speed rusher who with good bend can get around the edge. Collins' arm length and foot work appear to work against him the most in these situations. He looks just a tad slow sliding out to block these types, and he doesn't always corral them from getting to the qb. That said, it's early in the season and he'll get better.
Hopefully the disrespecting continues the rest of the year and beyond.
I think he's faced the best he will all season in Miller, and until the game got out of hand and Miller sold out on everything but getting a sack, Collins held up fine.
As you said, it's early in the season and he'll get better.
I get the desire for a scapegoat but I watched Witten, LC, Fred, Smith, and even the great Martin miss on blocks in that first half. the backside cutoffs and second level blocking was atrocious. I guess because Green messed up twice that means everyone else gets a pass? That is a bad headline.
It's bull ****
