Doug Free play by play Tennessee

I must admitt this was a much harder game to do play by play on, Doug lined up against a DE who never put his hand on the ground and who was bringing it every down. Lattimore for all his accolades was awful. He would not go where the play was designed to go.

Tennessee clearly had more talent than Oakland. The DE lined up on Doug seldom put his hand on the ground and a linebacker would stack behind the end. They blitzed testing Dougs mental part of the game. This week he may have made one mental error when a DE stunted inside and Doug did not follow him, it could have been the guard just as easily. 

Doug did not dominate his guy driving him yards down the field like last week  but the end lined up a yard off the ball on some snaps standing up getting a running start. There was a lot of stunting and setting up moves. 

I was really impressed when Doug read a blitz before the play tipping McGee to it and a big play insued in the vacated area. Made Ogletree look like a super wide out but a lot of  the credit is really Dougs. 

They really tested Doug!
