Tackling wins championships... and so does any NBA team that can take advantage of the 15-20 foot area of the court.
Maybe so, but when a defense (such as ours) has an opponent in First (or Second and even Third) -and-a-Zip-Code as many times as we did and somehow allows that opponent to manage a First Down, there's a lot more going on than just bad tackling.
