Muench's Trenches: The rush is on

Alabama right offensive guard Anthony Steen played well in the Tide's 38-17 win over LSU and held his own against a projected first-round pick in defensive tackle Anthony Johnson.
Steen didn't generate much push working against Johnson. In fact, he gave ground at times, but he rode it out and walled him off long enough to create a seam for his ball carrier when he did. He anchored well and did a better job of mirroring Johnson than left offensive guard Arie Kouandjio did in pass protection. In addition, his hand fighting didn't disappoint. He got a great initial fit and quickly reset his hands when they got knocked down.
