I'm sorry I don't buy this at all.
I'm sure having some game film on the guy is great and all, but how much preperation do you need to tackle a guy?
Ron Rivera: Okay, we are playing the Cowboys on Thursday. Dallas gave him 30 carries against Baltimore even though he wasn't effective. They are also starting Drew Henson. I think they'll run the ball a lot.
Defensive Players: But what do we do? We don't have much film to study to counter Julius Jones.
Ron Rivera: Good point... Maybe you should just TACKLE him when he has the ball?
Defensive Players: Yeah that's a good idea coach! We'll tackle him like we get paid to do.
Game planning over.
