punt block

In this week's "Four Quarters" (video link here), Mike Westhoff described the design of the game-changing punt block by Joe McKnight, and how even he was surprised by the outcome:

?I thought strategically we would have three guys on two. If we did this exactly correct, we may get that,? Westhoff said. ?I didn?t think it would necessarily be Joe. I thought the fullback would step in and take Joe, and we?d get 2-on-1 on the corner. As it turned out, they actually moved out a little bit better than I thought, although the fullback probably went further out than what they?d like him to, and Joe came clean and we blocked it.?
