In response to tanbass's comment:
Okay, once again, can someone please tell me how to take down a guy like Gronk by going high? It's just not going to happen. He will run you over...period.
You want to tackle someone, you are supposed to wrap up their legs, and stop them from moving. Some guys wrap up with a perfect form tackle. A lot of smaller guys like the DBs have been diving at the legs of the ball carriers for years trying to knock their legs out from under them. I personally think it's a bad way to tackle, but it happnes on almost every play.
I think Ty Law and Troy Brown most likely know more than anyone here on this forum. They are bost very respected players. The both said this was a clean hit. Sorry but I'll take their word over anyone's here that the hit was clean.
Yes it sucks, but this is reality in the NFL. If they put any more rules in about tackling, they will be wearing flags in a few years.
Players today are bigger, stronger, and faster. And, defnders can't shoot 'em either. Their jobs are on the line too, and their play is reviewed in post game film sessions. Yes, the NFL has brought this down to this issue. But, fear not! We'll have a SB outdoors in the elements of the Northeast! Imaine a game played under Sunday's conditions? Sorry, but NO ONE will ever convince me that this would be the best thing the NFL can present as their crown jewel of a game. Try telling the Saints, should they get there, that the conditions may be beyond poor, but it'll be fun to watch on TV.
exactly. NO rules will help. Emphasis of rules is what got us here in the 1st place. If a players doesnt want to get concussions they should quit football. It was fine as far as im concerned. We have more info now. Players can choose to be rich and play or live a normal life like me. They chose this life. Goodell just needs to stay out of it as he is the reason for all these knee injuries. Players have expressed they would rather get a head injury and sit out a week than a year. They spoke on it and its THEIR future.
