Look at the tape from Saturday night, and watch Hunter on each of the sacks that he allowed. He isn’t faked out by these guys. Watch, there are no spin moves, so special techniques, nothing. Hunter is overpowered by his opponent. On at least one of the sacks, he is pushed out of the way like a rag doll. The technique used is brute force, and it is used over and over again.

Go back to last year, and you see the same thing. Look at the tape of Von Miller’s sack on Sanchez, and you see Hunter tossed out of the way like a napkin.

My point? Wayne Hunter is barely giving any resistance to these guys. Being tossed aside is a sign of a guy not giving anything back as far as fight.

I believe his back is bothering him more than he is letting on.

If you have a bad back, you can relate to this. When your back is in pain, you can barely get out of bed. We can function, go through our days, but it’s very difficult to move. When my back is out, I find myself holding it the entire day until the pain subsides.

Imagine having to push against a guy that is over 250 pounds, running towards you, when you have a bad back. Think of the aches that we have in our backs, and if someone makes contact with us, what we do? We move out of the way quickly, don’t we? So imagine going against a pass rusher, with a bad back. You would get pushed out of the way, and you would get pushed every time.

Wayne Hunter must be injured more than we think. It’s the only thing that makes sense.
