If Ruff tells him - or any other player - that they need to "go to the inside more", do they really need to be prodded with a physical change of linemates to spark that instead of just accepting their own initiative to play that way on their own?
I don't know but it just sounds like another player being more of a reactionary follower a la Connolly and some others than being a proactive leader IMO.
