Now this is what I was getting ready to say after reading all posts, but you did it well before I had to. If you are going to make comments, read the entire article.

" It should be noted, Nicks and Evans were only responding to questions about the tactic, and neither brought the subject up on their own. And both stressed it was not an excuse for their overall performance. "

Semantics...

I quote "Still, Nicks and Evans acknowledged the stategy kept them from executing their blocks on linebackers on several plays."

Its the same thing.

Of course, that doesn't mean we aren't stupid idiots.

What the excuse for that?

Some of the calls are opinionated... one's ref hold is can be another borderline call.
Just to point out the error, and add some clarity...

Evans and Nicks are both actually guards. They have nothing to do with Chris Long or how bad the tackles were playing. Also, if you pay attention to the article, he says it more effected their run blocking than it did their pass protection. I mean, Long raped our RT (regardless of who it was at the time) the entire game, and did so very legit-like, but that just has absolutely no relevance to what Nicks and Evans were talking about. I would honestly trust two pro-bowl guards who were asked and didn't provoke the conversation, and even then admitted to an overall bad performance, then just pass it off as whining and try to play father to the team ("We should have played better, there is no excuse! we deserved to lose! HMPH!"). They were probably held, it likely affected the score and our performance, and it sucks to think it would've mattered. The game is over, we should have won regardless, life isn't fair.
