  1. Arthur Uvaas says:

    It just shows how strong NFL defenders are by their use of the so-called “hip-drop” tackle. This pro wrestling tackling technique, where the offensive player is lifted over the defender’s shoulder, and sometimes pile-driven into the turf, should be BANNED. However, the “hip-drop” technique that immediately puts an offensive player to the turf, SHOULD NOT BE. In my opinion, the wrestling suplex-move should be OUTLAWED. The “hip-drop” technique that puts the offensive player, to the turf, IMMEDIATELY, should remain an important tackling fundamental. Has anyone asked the officials what they think? Legislating the latter would be a nightmare.
