BlainThePain Posted October 15, 2009 Report Share Posted October 15, 2009 I was flipping through the channels yesterday and landed on "Playbook" a show on NFL Network that breaks down games, and I caught the tail end of the Bengals/Ravens segment. They showed one of Benson's successful running plays and Mike Mayock broke down why it was successful.On the play the Bengals ran an unbalanced line with Whitworth and Roland both on the right side. They actually brought Jeremi Johnson up to the line of scrimmage and had him, for all intent and purposes, play left tackle on the play. This forced the Ravens to make adjustments and get out of what they wanted to do. The running play actually went to the left side between Mathis and Cook and Jeremi completely man handled his guy on the line of scrimmage. The play was successful mainly because of Jeremi's blocking and Kyle Cook doing a great job of getting the Ravens nose tackle completely turned away from the play.I wish you guys could have seen it because Jeremi made a beautiful block, and you can definitely see why they gave JJ another chance. I'm starting to believe that when he is healthy and determined, there is no fullback better at blocking than Jeremi Johnson. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
