Bourne and Smith are supposed to be run after the catch guys, but we haven’t seen much of it yet

I mean I just watched it twice. He didn’t grab him.
It wouldn't matter anyway, if that's the case it's not a hold it's an illegal block below the waist on a kicking play, or a trip, he caused the guy to go to ground by going into his legs, if you want to call it a grab or a block, either way he made contact and it's a pretty clear penalty.

Peas is taking away the run on Trent Brown’s side, and just took away Henry in the red zone with the help over the top

I don't understand why they don't have a back grab the back of Brown's shirt and follow him while he plows ahead.

It’s just a weird time to mention it.
Seeing Smith and Bourne actually do what they were paid to do, at around the same time, got me thinking about it. I’d really like to see them get the ball in spots where they can run with the ball after catching it

Gotcha. I said on another thread that I expect Jonnu to get a lot more touches as the protection improves. And I would expect those touches to include YAC.

This official is a riot. He sounds like he’s reading the weekly obituaries.
