Film Room: Chris Wormley Is a Run Stopper’s Run Stopper

It’s 2000. Life is good. Y2K didn’t destroy the world. The Internet is providing an outlet to the entire planet.You’re actually able to sit and eat at a restaurant. What a time to be alive.

And in 2000, the Steelers’ 3-4 run defense was its defining quality. Get you a massive plugger in the middle and a couple of offensive-linemen looking defensive ends next to them. Their goal? First, second, and third, stop the run. Pass rusher? I hardly know her. That was the outside linebacker’s job.

So those defensive ends were true five techs. Lining up outside shade (outside shoulder) of the offensive tackle.
