I watched Roger Saffold for every play in the first half and formulated some opinions. Here goes.
Roger Saffold is the exact opposite of Alex Baron. Saffold is aggresive, aware, and probably played his best game today. He knows when to come off a chip and look for other blitzers. He understands what a pocket should look like. There were times when his defender got outside of him , but Saffold extended long arms to get that little last push right at the last moment to send whomever sailing past Bradford. On three and five step drops, Saffold punched and stalemated like he should. He also threw a monster block on a pull that scored the Steven Jackson touchdown, which was just one of many aggresive blocks thrown today. It should be noted that we lined up strong right for most of the day, leaving Saffold squarely responsible for the backside. Im not saying he is perfect, but no one is going to get a square shot at Bradford the way Saffold is playing. Ok, im done gushing.
