This needs to be said.
The defensive players for the Green Bay Packers are terrible, I mean God awful, tacklers.
I know it flies in the face of conventional wisdom, not to mention years of modern NFL practice, but McCarthy would be well served to put his team in pads this week and have live hitting on everyone save for the quarterbacks. This team needs the practice. Not only that, he should have Sanders start all over and have a week where the defense does nothing but work on tackling technique.
And that's just it - another perfect example of how Bob Sanders is exposed as a defensive coordinator. Look at last nights Bears/Eagles games. Those teams can tackle. Why? Because they are well coached and practice it. I mean, anytime the offense catches the ball, that's the end of it. Hit after hit, tackle after tackle, last nights game was like a clinic. The Packers, by comparison, are Junior Varsity in the tackling department.
