Re: Linbackers Need To Step It Up
The game has progressed...a ton of teams are employing strategies to filter plays back to their safeties to make tackles...If you look at the stats, what USED to be a sign of weakness against the run (DB tackle stats) is now rapidly turning out to be the opposite.
James Farrior is also ranked 7th in total tackles after only 7 games (While some teams have played 8 games).
DB's are now required to be physical specimens and know how to tackle. Gone are the days of the Deion Sanders players who just cover WR's.
