    Good luck with seeing a 250 MLB shed a 325lb Guard and stuff a hole!!!!! Once a lineman like a guard or center get there hands on a MLB I don't care how good the LBer might be he isn't getting to the hole befor the RB gains 4 yards at least!!! It is the DT's job to occupy the blockers so the MLB can run free and stuff the hole its football 101. The whole point of having DT's is so your LBers can freely plug holes and make plays. If a LBer has to shed an O lineman then he is shedding them to chase down the RB not plug the hole cause the RB is already thru the hole!!!!!

      No it doesn't most O-Line shift to the side of the run, there for the MLB will have Either the Center or the FB to deal with

        Apparently you have never played organized football -- if an O-Lineman blocks a LB -- MLB In this case the MLB's Athletisism should allow him to be quick enough to shed the block and make the play. If he cant do that which has been the case since 2 years before Pierce lef,t then we will have the same ole problem -- Cant get off the field on 3rd down

        Peace
