The boys upfront should be stopping the RBs and at the very least SLOWING THEM DOWN!!!!! I mean these RBs are getting past the LBs at darn near full speed!
Bottom line is tackling is a big no huge problem. Should have worked less on stripping the ball and more on wrapping up! But I will take into consideration that they are learning a new system and all that, but I will not let Pep use that as an excuse when he is one on one with Long. And I know he was a Pro bowler last year but so was Pep. That article where he acts like he is not worried about it is kinda sickening. A new system has little to do with OL play in general.
I couldnt agree more. & the thing with Pep-he didn't wanna play for Carolina, but Fox and Hurny insisted on bringing him back, now all he has to do is show up & collect his money. It's obvious from the way he's played thus far that he is gonna be the Pep of 2007. Either that or he's saving the good stuff for the regular season, which we all hope. The D-line all together has just been terrible.
