He needs to ensure he keeps his hands on his opponent because elite players will be able to disengage from him and get after the quarterback. Hopefully he’s been working at that, because although I noticed his man getting separation from him on a couple of occasions, he was much more consistent with this.
I still liked what I saw from Howard! I thought he showed some promise. I did re-watch the tape and still feel that way. Have you re-watched it?
