The article compares the performance of the football players Todd Weiner and Adewale Ogunleye. Ogunleye doesn't have great quickness, but he does have a good initial burst. Weiner will have to be aware of alignments and presnap reads to know when Ogunleye is coming and when he isn't. This uncertainty will give Ogunleye the one step he needs to get into Weiner, who lacks lower-body strength and is susceptible to bull rushes. Weiner has the ability to push Ogunleye inside, but the interior blockers will have their hands full with the inside rush of tackle Tommie Harris and middle linebacker Brian Urlacher. One should look for Ogunleye to mix his rushes inside and outside to keep Weiner off-balance.
