We don't play like that anymore...it's all ankle tackling...leg tackling and pushing people out of bounds. So now I'm looking for opinions here. Is it because we are a bit small back there? Is it because of all the injuries the last 2 years? A combination of those two? Is it a method to keep penalties down? They are down BTW. Is it the way the rules are being applied? Lots there....cast your opinion at will...add your owjn of course if need be. I'm not saying we have the best secondary in the league...but none of these guys is Otis smith either...they are all supreme athletes...very quick, very fast and all have the attitude needed...but there are no snots left on the grass...of this I am sure. Receivers are not afraid to go over the middle like the Rams have been...like the Colts have been...when they are not afraid of being popped the field is much bigger. I will never forget beating the Rams...by the 4th quater the entire middle of the field was empty. Every receiver on the Rams was running sideline routes...the strategy worked that day...I miss it but if it's intentional...i will understand.
