Really made that play, particularly Hudson. It also looked like some of the Utah DL had quit by then. Cabral does a good job getting on his man, but the effort to get off the block by 41 was pretty mediocre.
On the kabuki thing, the reason you don't see Manny ride the mesh point is because it wasn't a read option. If you go back to the USC game by comparison, in particular Manny's TD run, you'll see Manny ride the mesh point/press the line with it, a la TK. We aren't calling as many read-option runs this year, and just because it's a hand off from shotgun, doesn't mean that Manny has the option to pull the ball. The fact that they pulled Hudson to block on the back side let's me know that it was never intended to give Manny the choice to run--they'd be optioning that DE otherwise.
