Former NFL defensive lineman and NFL media personality Mike Golic weighed in on the video, placing the blame on poor coaching, rather than age alone.
I get what you are saying about technique…but look at these kids. Their helmets are bigger than the rest of their entire body. Even if they tried to form tackle I feel like their helmets would collide.
As did many other former players like Dan Orlovsky, Louis Riddick, Channing Crowder and Shawn Merriman.
This is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen in youth sports. 1-they look to be like 7-8 years old. There’s not need to be doing anything close to this 2-one if OBVIOUSLY outmatched and that’s on the coach 3-whoever put this drill together should face consequences
There are many people that should not be allowed to be associated with the game of football, at any level. People responsible for this are doing nothing good for the game, and especially nothing good for these children. F’ing joke.
This is child abuse. I know dozens of all pro/hall of fame players that didn’t play til they were 10+ years old. You aren’t helping ur kids. Whatever coach set up this drill for these babies needs to be fired and I would like to do this drill against him on his way out. https://t.co/cuFbWbKQPK
