Football is far too dynamic to expect a player to aim for where another player might be. Hence all the angst about players diving at legs instead of having his head up, hitting and wrapping up. BTW, the head up, wrapping up technique is the safest method for the tackler.
How can a player accurately predict where another player will be, in space? How can a much smaller DB tackle a much bigger TE/WR/RB by hitting higher? Have you ever played football outside the Pop Warner level? You appear to be making knee jerk reactions to a legal hit because it hurts the Texans. Charles did NOT make a dirty hit on Cush. It was clean, legal and what I would expect from any Texans RB.
boy that's a buncha gibberish. that charles hit should be illegal. there's no place for that in football. what's happening now is that nfl defenders are taking out their frustration with the no hits above the head rule with hitting way too low at the knees.
below the head above the knee. that is the proper, safer target area. that is not a needle in the haystack target that a lot of you people make it out to be. nfl defenders for far too long have relied on lazy tackling technique of leading with your helmet going for big shots instead of getting two hands and wrapping up and tackling properly.
Its the consequence of the espn highlight era and the nfl powers neglecting the safety of the players and just enjoying the gruesome entertaining helmet to helmet hits. They only changed because they got sued.
Im telling you right now, the NFL needs to get in front of what's happening right now which is the lethal trend of nfl defenders going too low towards the knee. They need to outlaw all hits to the knee and down.
