I know that. I'm referring to making wrapping up a rule.

Make shoulder charge tackles illegal, and mandate that a player at least attempt to wrap.

If people want to play shitty defense, let em. I don't want to have yet another reason to throw a flag (slowing down the game) or take more money out of players pockets. It's already hard enough to play defense these days.

I think he got inaccurate from the pressure

I remember GW saying that a lot, that the point of pressure and hits was to throw the QB's timing and accuracy off in the 4th quarter.

KV bolsters my argument that a rule change that mandates wrapping up in the tackle won't eliminate the exciting, big hits that fans like to see.


Yep, if you tackle like you're supposed to and wrap up, you not only lower the risk of getting flagged for a helmet-to-helmet hit, but you also increase the likelihood that you'll bring the guy down.

The rule change really tries to eliminate people launching themselves at others which is reckless and stupid to begin with (one reason I don't like Troy Polamalu, he launches himself constantly and gets praised for it).
