How are Rice and Pierce being used, and is it the right way? Deeper look into the numbers from Sundays game. The defensive front was among the best in the league, but you already knew that from watching the game.

I've long felt that while breaking tackles isn't exactly a strong suit of Rice, he makes up for that a lot by making tackles less efficient.  He very rarely hits and goes down where he is hit.  Instead, it seems like he falls forward or twists and turns for an extra yard or two every time he's brought down.

 

I don't know how you quantify that, though.

Rice doesn't look as explosive.

I think its too early to make any meaningful judgements, but the OL has been bad for a while now dating back to the postseason and throughout the preseason. Rice is still very capable of making explosive runs when given good blocking.

I wonder if his hip is something that has bothered him for a while, kept it hush hush, and it finally gave out.

For clarity's sake, PFF grades Forced Missed Tackles as a broken tackle or an elusive move that causes a defender to miss.  A runner can forced a missed tackle without being touched, for example.

That really shocks me that Rice doesn't make more guys miss.
