I would not make a blanket statement that "tackling was bad". I would say tackling in space was horrendous on a couple of drives, the most notable being a broken tackle and head-tucked half-assed effort on the scoring play. I see this improving as time goes on and hope to hell the stupid targeting rule does not have some being tentative about bringing the wood.

That is something I've thought about. After seeing some of our guys getting tossed for targetting I hope it does not affect the defensive mindset to go knock someone's block off.
