This is why I think Pioli isn't that smart. I mean, WTF do youis this what they say to Cassel when they go over this on film?
"well, you had a cover 2 look and went to your curl too early. This totally isn't something to expect with a LeBeau D, and I think you did great. Really unlucky that the SS jumped that route, I doubt it happens in the future.".
