12.2: Coffee Break with Matt and Mindi
With Frank Gore out for the year, Matt Maiocco and Mindi Bach detail why it's what he did without the ball that will be missed the most.
We're usually we have our Matt and -- he segment over lunch today it's over copy. As we know the dual headed monster as you tech turned it brand was breaking Anthony did seemingly filling in for Frank Gore. I think between the tackles I'll be fine I think rain will be fine I think it's his intangibles. In Green Bay very cold weather expected snow I was gonna make the difference. I think -- I think they can carry on two and a pretty good job of that. I think a lot of it is going to be the stuff -- policy you know when the ball doesn't -- Dixon and the ball doesn't go to Westbrook. I think it's a little things right. He's do you talk to coaches here frank was just so spot on what all -- blitz pick up stuff. I think that's one issue and I know you people don't really. They can blitz pick up as being -- -- John I don't know running back. You know like why can't we get this guy and that deal well the coaches don't feel comfortable putting him on the field because he might get the quarterback killed. That's a pretty good reason to keep them on the sidelines so that's where -- becoming an issue. Asked Brian Westbrook the other thing is gore is known for his leadership and west particularly here but this is his first year and this team we saw Arizona -- -- lineman Corey wanted to go do you think he can fill that all the leadership on the field they'll need to give you get to -- -- First time in a field. You he's a quiet leader he is -- guided sort of exudes professionalism. I'm not sure. Bet that's a big thing I think Troy Smith has made a lot of strides as a leader. Since taking over I think Ernie Davis. Is a leader. I just think it's more important for those guys to. Had their assignments down and not. You know keep the ball off the ground. And just do what they're supposed to do there's not a whole lot of pressure. On each of those guys individually the pressure comes like -- get from the complete package and I look at it 24 touches a game for Frank Gore. Westbrook isn't gonna get 24 touches a game what Dixon's likening it when he or Texas game but combined they will so it sort of spreads. The in the duties around a little bit. I -- see -- if Westbrook does get your group is he admitted in the cardinal games he didn't feel comfortable until the game went on I could see he gives -- group maybe giving him -- Texas. That Dixon has. More than maybe originally planned that's.
