I can’t say I ever analyzed Marcus Peters’ tackling this closely but for whatever reason this year we’ve seen a few more highlights of him not tackling very well.
This clip is in slow-mo so it’s going to make it look worse than perhaps it is but this still looks pretty bad. Watch the non-tackle here from Peters in the middle of the field.
Peters had a great game with the two takeaways... but wasn’t real interested in tackling anyone. pic.twitter.com/OFpHzLf0Gp— Soren Petro (@SorenPetro) October 31, 2017
Growing up, I was a huge Deion Sanders fan and he did not have a good reputation when it came to tackling. He once said they pay him to cover, not to tackle. So, thoughts on the tackle, Deion?
