Default Re: What exactly was Casey Hampton doing?

I'm not so sure about that. He was standing out in the middle of the field (there were no Olineman within 5 yards of him), and Cutler basically just ran right past him for 30 yards. At least on this particular play where the WR's cleard out the entire middle of the field, Hampton was very exposed. I'm not questioning his ability to play NT, but when slow QB's pick up 30 yards by smoking the guy who's sole assignment was to prevent that very thing from happening, this was a bad match-up.

I also saw where Tomlin commented on the play and said "We weren't where we were supposed to be"

Either way, I don't expect to see Hampton in that role again.
