I noticed something during the game, started to formulate a theory, wanted to see what you guys thought.
Literally every single snap, Shaq simple ran full speed as fast as he could towards the tackles outside shoulder. Almost no swim moves, hand fighting, or any other sort of pass rush technique, which I know he has, even from just his college tape.
Then I started to notice, this was making his tackle have to kick out EXTREMELY wide in order to deal with his speed. A lot of the plays Reed and the interior guys made seemed to stem from the fact that they had about 6 yards of open field to work with from the space Shaq's tackle vacated.
A lot of us are complaining that Shaq contributed almost no pressure, but I am almost wondering if that was by design. PC had seen Ansah be ineffective for a long time, and if I had to guess probably knew Shaq was too small to contribute much as a traditional pass rusher. So maybe he tried something new.
I have no idea for sure, just was curious on what your guys thoughts were or if anyone noticed a similar trend.
