Earlier this season New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride called out 49ers defensive end Justin Smith for holding opposing offensive lineman.
It looks like Gilbride wasn’t making anything up because Rams head coach Jeff Fisher sees the same thing.
“The one that’s most effective is the grab game, it’s been in the game forever,” said Fisher, per the Sacramento Bee. “And Justin does a great job of it, a really good job of it.”
Smith does do a great job of holding. I’ve seen it myself on film. He keeps his hands inside so the officials can’t tell what he’s doing. it coudl end up catching up to him sooner or later now that everyone is calling him out for it.
