The Tackling last night by the Lions secondary was atrocious..

lunging, arm tackles, barely bringing a punch. My 9 year old rec team at least tried to tackle someone. I really feel like if you put 44 from SF and Derrick Henry in an Eye Formation, signed 5 or 6 drive blocking linemen, your offense would be unstoppable. 2 in a row of that then fake and hit the tight end. Old school football, today's defenses are so small, weak and non-fundamental its really sad.

Work hard and you will succeed!!

    They want to hit and blow guys up or dive at players with their shoulders to avoid actually tackling.

    9 out of 10 times when there is poor tackling it's because of minimal to zero effort.
