Patrick Willis of the 49'ers mentions his "welcome to the NFL" moment


His welcome to the NFL moment? Attempting to tackle then Arizona Cardinals runningback Edgerrin James, and almost blacking out in the process. The article its self is about the lost art of tackling which amazed some of the conclusions they came too. First they blamed the Tampa 2 scheme for possibly effecting the lost art, and they never mentioned the Colts highly disciplined well tackling squad. We all remembered for years the Colts struggling to do the basics, such as tackle well. Once Dungy came to town, that all changed quickly. I find it laughable that the Tampa 2 has contributed to the lost fundamental of tackling. While yes, it teaches to swarm to the ball, the Tampa 2, especially the way the Colts play relies on single open field tackles from guys like Kelvin Hayden and Clint Sessions. It is funny that they mention the post Dungy Tampa Bay team. Just another example of what a terrible coach Jon Gruden was.
