Default Horrible tackling

Has anyone noticed more and more *****y tackling in the league as of late?

It's very rare that I see a guy make a proper, good form tackle. All the DBs try and launch into the guys with their heads leading, like missiles. We see more helmet-to-helmet hits than ever, despite it being a penalty, supposedly.

We saw Wheeler for the Colts try to KO Ryan Grant last Thursday, and he missed and broke his teammates hand.
I can remember the Viking DB last year in Arizona try and KO the Cardinals guy with his helmet, and missed, instead shattering teammate EJ Henderson's leg.

That's just the highlight ones I can recall. But every game, watch the DBs coming in and notice how their damn shells lead almost all the time.

http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-h...for-a-big-gain

Watch this run by Frank Gore from this weekend. Notice #24 Michael Huff coming in, with a free shot to tackle him. Instead, he tries to launch into him. Doesn't even attempt to use his arms/hands to make the tackle. This is no exception right here.

I really would love to see what these tough guy DBs would do if they had the old leather helmets instead of these armored, rock-hard shells that they use as weapons.

We have some high school coaches on this board. Is tackling even taught anymore, or are these guys just always looking for the highlight reel instead of simply making a sure tackle (which too often hurts guys, and misses tackles)?

Only to be expected, as the league starts moving towards basketball on grass and teams don't practice tackling anymore in order to prevent injuries. The form tackle really is a lost art.

I saw it everywhere in the Packers-Colts game. Especially on the dump off pass to Addai.

The tackling has been poor for years. I think players want to go for the knockout on every play or are just plain too lazy to wrap up.

At some point the league is going to have to get serious about helmet to helmet hits. It'll probably take some tragic situation or some pretty boy to get his career threatened but sooner or later it'll be focused on and i dont mean some 25k fine. Sit someone down for 6 games and it'll stop tomorrow.

it's also become such a speed game, that's its hard for a player to slow down, get the proper form, and wrap up.

nowadays most just go full speed and thrust their body at somebody and hope its enough to bring them down.

Yeah the guys are bigger and faster, on average, than ever before. Of course.
And more aggressive, violent, and mad. I think at least.

They play with reckless abandon. It's taught early.

As far as them running at full speed and all, sure, but they still choose to lower their heads and dive into'fly into the carrier/receiver all the time.

I hate when the DBs come in when a LB or DL is already bringing down or holding up a runner, and the DB comes in with his helmet, drilling the defenseless runner. I hate the cheap hits the safeties put on the defenseless receivers too, with their heads.

I love a good clean hard hit, but not using the rock hard shells.

I remember being pissed off and irritated by the Roy Williams horse-collars for a few years before the NFL finally got serious about that penalty.
And I was pissed off about the low hits on QBs, like on Carson Palmer and Matt Hasselbeck, and once Brady got the hit, then the NFL got serious about it.

Will Brady have to play RB for them to get serious about the flying helmets?

I really, really think this problem can be rectified by removing the facemask. I mean, really, who is going to fly in head-first without a facemask? It serves no purpose other than turning the helmet into a weapon.

Watch some of the old NFL Films videos and you will see a lot of bad tackling. Just because the vast majority of highlights show the Steel Curtain and the 85 Bears doesn't mean that was the norm in the NFL.

Tackling has gotten progressively worse for over a decade. But what did you expect?

corners are being drafted to focus exclusively on the passing game in the modern nfl. even if theyre a liability against the run, its not nearly as important as it used to be back in the day of 3 yards and a cloud of dust. especially with the enforcement of the no downfield contact rule, teams are looking for speed and coverage ability over size and physicality. As the passing game continues to take over, LB'ers with good coverage/blitzing skills will become even more important as well.

This will continue until the league gets so pass heavy that some team changes it up, gets big heavy lineman and punishes the smaller faster defenses enroute to a super bowl. then the cycle will turn back and go the other way.

Teams are getting used to seeing the 3-4 and dealing with the complex blitzes. Pretty soon, teams will look to go back to the 4-3 because teams dont see it as much anymore, so its harder to play against because its not the norm, you dont prepare for it every week.

ive said it before so this is mostly just rehashing thats poorly written cause im watching tv also, but the nfl runs in cycles its just a matter of staying ahead of the curve.

True but i think its even worse now because at least some guys were good form tacklers back in the day. I feel like no one is now, almost everyone just launches themselves to take out a guys legs.

I think it is similar, in a way, to basketball.

Watch the NBA and you'll see fewer & fewer guys who can knock down the wide open 16-18 footers compared to the olden days.

But these guys all know how to dunk, many different ways to dunk.

Why? Do they ever show the 16-footers on SportsCenter?
Do they ever show the big dunks?

Same with the NFL.
ESPN shows Jacked Up, not Wrapped Up.

ok this is a terrible idea. The way we teach our high school kids is to break down at about 2yds away with there hands back like there reaching for a gun in the holster then exploding them forward up there back grabbing cloth and driving with there inside foot splitting the ball carrier. We then teach them to place there facemask on the ball bc it keeps there head up and makes them drop there hips to drive through the ball carrier so if u remove the facemask this eliminates this teaching point making tackling worse.

This would be the same they would just put their face on the ball instead of the actual facemask.

Sounds like your teams are all behind the times, the Bengals have had trouble with wrap-up tackling for the past two decades.

What I have noticed is that for a League that is supposedly focused on eliminating unnecessary c oncussion risks, they've done a truly terrible job of making sure that the players helmets are secured so they don't fall off on seemingly every single play.

This isn't new, people have been decrying the lack of proper tackling form since i started watching football.

There's always Patrick Willis though.
