    Arriving to the football with violence

    The whole staff has been using the term violence when it comes to how they want the game of football played. Shane Burnham uses it again in this Q & A.

    My God! There is no better way to describe how I would like our football team to play than to play with violence. Bring on the season!

    Re: Arriving to the football with violence

    Decent article, proofreading would help. I agree "violence" is a good descriptor of what our defensive line play needs to be, but lets just keep that from Leonard Johnson. Just kidding, I LOVE LJ :D

    Re: Arriving to the football with violence

    Don't get me wrong, big hits are great- they get the other players and the crowd pumped up, they make the other guy think twice about coming your way next time, and a really big hit might get you on ESPN. However, laying out a big hit but failing to wrap someone up and then watching him break free for a big gain or a score might also get you on ESPN.

    Let's hit them hard AND wrap them up this year D!

    no one has said they are teaching ONLY violence. i'm sure they will be teaching how to hit AND wrap violently.

    Re: Arriving to the football with violence

    Violence is great, but I would settle for good fundamental tackling and better pursuit as a whole by the entire defense.
