Brains and Brawn

In today's game of football, offensive linemen must be much different than say, twenty years ago. With the complicated blocking schemes, the offenses that seemingly pull on every snap, an offensive linemen can no longer be a snot-blowing drive blocker, rather he has to be physical and analytical to a certain extent. It's not just about hitting someone, but hitting the right one. Nowadays, brain AND brawn are ideal. In that, Mikal Brewer is one of the most qualified linemen in the country.

With the officials being scheduled I can't do too much changing now."
