The most lousy tackling display is the first 4 games. Even in the win against the fins, it was down right nasty.

If it was me, I'd do tackling drill for 2 weeks.

The lack of sound fundamentals is definitely a troubling aspect of Richard Smith's coaching philosophy. Sloppy play is inexcusable, and indicates that they are not paying attention to details, IMO.

Just because other teams do not tackle well does not make it ok for our team to not tackle well.

Im wondering if defensive coaches at the college and NFL level have just gone away from fundamental tackling all together. I've noticed a declining trend of solid fundamental tackling over the years.

];464086']I dont know mex, seems fundamental to me. People are running at people like mad men, as a result they over shoot and they end up trying to arm tackle.

Bad angle = Out of control = Over run the play = Arm tackle = Falls down silly = Tries to grab ankles = Complains to the ref (rest of team)/ Cries to momma (Dunta)

I know there is bad tackling in the league, but I must say they are at least SEMI FORMED - Missed tackles. They way we miss tackles is just pathetic sometimes.
There's a reason these guys could tackle before.
