    This is a legit question, as they passed on a "4th and 20" option being made available in a Free Kick situation. I don't think there is an answer formulated as of yet.

      The kicking team has to declare an on sides kick. Then they line up as prior. They let the kicking team have an unbalanced line up- as if that helps. But no more surprise on sides kicks.

        They could try, oh I don't know, tackling technique?

        Hardly anyone really tackles anymore. If they aren't just plowing a shoulder into them, they're just grabbing onto and throwing them down. Hit someone, and wrap your arms.

        What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

            When the ball carrier is a WR, matching your speed and an arm’s length ahead, what is the proper tackling technique? I grew up playing on the D line, so my tackling situations were much different.

              You either dive to try to get a hand on him, or you don't, and either someone else gets him on an angle, or he scores.

              Hip drop tackle doesn't help in this situation either.

                That dive and grab is going to be defined as a hip-drop... You will not be able to grab a ball carrier from behind and use you weight to pull him to the ground. That's what the NFL is trying to eliminate: Someone grabbing on and becoming dead weight.

                    The definition is going to be "Grabbing a runner from behind, leaving your feet, and applying your body weight to pull a runner down".

                    • I know not all that many people will watch the UFL games, but one thing I like about them is that they end up being extended auditions to get to the NFL. Which is important considering how bad many teams are at evaluating players before the draft in a few weeks.

                          That's not just called a "tackle"?

                          Srsly, I would like to go back and review my high school stats, because 85% of the times I was brought down that describes it. How did I know every one of those times it was illegal?

                                AFL 2.0 recently folded and this is another reboot attempt that has been seen in flames since it was announced.
