Have fun with highlight reels, I'll take better football play.
I wouldn't say that was a problem this year. And with a guy like Zimmer who stresses fundamentals it wouldn't be hard for him to get a guy with all the ability in the world to realize the importance of getting the ball carrier to the ground.

Just because a guy makes big hits doesn't mean he can't tackle.

No it wasn't because we played guys who tackle and not go for big hits.

Mays had defensive snaps in 12/16 games. Sure some were barely any snaps at all. But he got a good amount of playing time. Nelson isn't afraid to throw a big hit either.

Mays was a starter who got benched after 1 game.

Im not saying NEVER go for a big hit, but you have to be very selective when you do. Reggie saves it for the plays where the guy is likely going out anyways or he can dislodge the ball. Elam does it too often in open field plays.

I don't think he is nearly as reckless as Mays when he goes in for the tackle. And I don't see anything that a little coaching can't fix.

For the record I think Mays was on too short of a leash this year.

Really the days of the big hit are over. and it's sad. The NFL and refs are calling every big hit a penalty. Remeber the ST block by I think Skuta that got called.

Nelson and other S's have started hitting low like they want, so when some big name WR/TE's go out with knee injuries maybe the NFL will re think some rules.

I think they are doing so when an ex player tries to sue they can say they tried to stop it.

Ronnie Lott would be band in today's NFL.

No way does Braxton beat out Bridgewater for Heisman. Even if Teddy loses. It will not be to Braxton. He stares down his WR's too much.

Elam looked fine to me, other than not wrapping up the one time. Our WR's are just too much to cover because Bridgewater throws to them all. He reads defenses easier than a Jack and Jill story.

Florida had the #1 defense against the hardest schedule in the nation. Only giving up 5 passing TD's all year. The true sophomore Bridgewater carved it up like a ginsu knife going through hot butter.

Gator Cookie Recipe. Take a Gator, throw it in the Sugar Bowl, and whip vigorously for 3 hours straight.

A few UF players got personal fouls last night; Elam wasn't one. He plays the way he is coached. NEPD did an in depth analysis diring the South Carolina v. Florida game and here's what they had to say:

Even Spielman was complimenting his tackling at the end of the game last night. It's not like he doesn't know how to tackle; he's probably just been instructed to be an intimidator.

I wouldn't be surprised if he got suspended for that hit in the NFL.

He did everything right on that play. wtf do you want him to do, get even lower and wrap the guy around the legs that that are bent and basically on the ground?

He was running full speed at the guy in the process of breaking down to make a hit when the guy raised and turned his head. Incidental contact.

It's football if you have the ball there are 11 guys on the other team who want to hit you.

Well the play is dead if he just touches the guy in the NFL and in college the play is dead because his knees hit the ground and it wasnt a catch.
He had plenty of time to pull up there.
It wasn't incidental at all.

They ruled that a catch on the field and overturned it on review.

One does not simply pull up when running full speed at guy in the process of making a catch.

No, but he had plenty of time and distance to alter his hit and decide when and were to hit him.

You act like he is hitting a stationary object. Even football players have to obey the laws of physics. Maybe if he was Mr Fantastic he could have avoided the helmet to helmet.

You are right though, he probably should have at least submitted a preliminary research paper (3-5pg) before deciding when and where to make that hit.

Even it is ruled a catch he was down. Absolutely no reason to even hit him.

Unless the receiver was juggling the ball and you were trying to seperate him from the ball, plus I'm pretty sure the whistle hadn't blown.

Play to the whistle, right?

Or play smart. Either one.
Run up and push him over.
Don't dive head first into him.

The odds of that seperating the ball from a reciever that is juggling it is slim.


The play was not a penalty.

He is a DB which is short for DEFENSIVE back. Part of his job description includes defending the pass. Attempting to separate the ball from the receiver is a tactic defenders commonly employ at all levels of American football. Some people call this playing defense.

THE GUY WOULD HAVE BEEN DOWN ANY WAYS.
He left his feet. Lead with his head.
There is no way to defend this. That is a 15 yard penalty and fine in the NFL.
Lord Goodell would make sure of that.

How else should he lead? Waist first with a vicious groin thrust or perhaps he should implement the missile drop kick tactic.

I don't know what you expect guys to do. No matter what, a proper tackle involves hitting with your upper body. And at the top, the thing that goes first when you lean forward. That is your head.
