Greg Cosell on emerging pass rushing and pass blocking trends in the NFL

A telling exchange between SI's Ross Tucker and Greg Cosell, the NFL Films analyst. Of note to BTSC: his take that the trend will be towards more spread offensive elements, precipitating a move towards quicker, smaller OLs. Also, this also ripples into pressure packages, with the trend being to rush as little people as possible yet get great pressure. The first trend seems at first glance to be worrisome to me, because of 1-B.A.'s tendancies vs. 2-the so-called renewed commitment to the run. What will happen? Will we stick to our model (as we've done in the past, through thick and thin), or flirt with more spread, in which case, our OL is not adapted to it? The second one seems to me to fit right in with the Dick Lebeau approach. Thoughts?
