Traditional drop back plays would imply that the coach hates Renner.
Yeah. I don't doubt that Clowney blew up a lot of plays last year but I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of it was due to the strength of the DL at the point of attack - I.e. RB tries to find a cutback lane and Clowney closes it off really quick.
