Why the Texans can't tackle?

Discussion in 'Texans Talk' started by [[Gary Kubiak]], Oct 8, 2006.

  1. 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.

    Add the Redskins to that list. They were awful today as well.

    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.

    There's a reason these guys could tackle before.
