Default Why the Texans can't tackle?

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.

Default Re: Why the Texans can't tackle?

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.

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.
