  • Herman Moore

    You can count on Reiff having help from a TE against Jared Allen. I think Suh has figured out that technique is required to prevent opposing linemen from using his strength and momentum against him. Look for his run blocking to be much better this season. As for Willie Young, just tell him it’s a preseason game and he’ll do just fine…

      No doubt Reiff will have help, whether it be from a back or TE, but he will have plays on his own. It’s a big game to prove the Lions right in anointing him their left tackle of the future. By the way, I like your logic with Young. Thanks for the read!
