He wasn't falling backwards, but Landon looked like he was expecting the RB to make a cut or try to avoid him and instead he just plowed over him. Smart move by the RB. I had Cecil Collins do the exact same thing to me once.
Anyway, when you break down and get into position, you gotta launch forward to the numbers. Doesn't mean Collins can't tackle. I'm sure he has laid the wood many times thru his career. He just didn't make the best decision, which is almost always to keep your eye on the numbers and attack when it comes to that type of situation.
I'l bet that hurt, too ( both physically and emotionally )
It almost always hurts less to give the hard hit than to receive it.
