A play that is perfectly blocked on the edge and you have your RB one on one with a S is all a offense could ever ask for. McNeal closes the gap and makes the tackle for a 3 yard gain. That is what a DC is looking for on the next level on the defensive side of the ball however.
You want your FS to be the last line of defense and a sure tackler. McNeal showed me he is all of the above. I also like the fact that he was moved into the box and after making play after play the TE decided he had enough and starting holding. This is a sure sign of frustration and it drew a critical holding call in key point of the game.
