Very interesting read my friend.
Why? It is now something defensive coaches teach players to do.
Hey, wait a minute.......
I thought the Vets taught the players or the players just knew how to do things and coaches were pretty much figure heads.
Sorry, couldn't resist that one.
Anyway, I think alot of the fumbles can also be attributed to some of the defensive schemes that are now being run.
Faster, bigger, better, equates to more guys around the ball.
First guy hits/puts a helmet on the ball and wraps him up, the next 2 or 3 guys tackle the ball.
