I would really REALLY love to see a game where defenses know how to tackle.

One of my big pet peeves. So many times a guy (or two) are right in position to make a stop and can't make a tackle.

Its technique since hitting is limited today at college practices (Some schools use the remote control tackling dummies and limit all week contact) You're left with what you're seeing today in many games. Guys launch themselves heads down not looking hoping to land highlight reels hit. It amounts to kids turning a loss into big gains with poor tackling keeping drives alive
