Rasul Douglas was asked if he takes pride in a big tackle as you do an interception. He responded by saying "c'mon man we don't get paid to tackle ... that is not in the contract ... it don't got nothing about tackles" and later said we (CB's) "don't really want to tackle but if you got to you got to you know".

While this is probably true for most defensive backs. I'm hearing fear as a RB and wanna lower the boom on that punk.

In the one game so far of 2023, PFF has Douglass as the 6th best CB in run defense, and 7th best tacklers.

In 2022, Douglass was in the top 32 of CB run defense and tackling. Douglas was also 1 of only 3 CBs that PFF graded out at 70 or better in every category. Jalen Ramsey and Charvarius Ward being the other two. Though Ramsey and Ward scored in the elite 90s in some areas too, while Douglas scores were all between 70 and 75. In case you're wondering, Alexander was 4th in coverage grade, but his tackling grade was 68.2.

But Douglass is the Jack of All Trades, but Ace of none, and shows he'll step up in make a tackle when it's called for him to do that.

So I think that answer is just him being brutally blunt, and not showing any fear, saying that's not what we prefer, but we do it when we need to.

Absolutely. I would say of the starting defensive backs, he's probably the best tackler.

But they fall over each other - Slaton ends up on the ground and Smith trips over him. Great blocking by the Falcons OL and the WR on Savage who was (likely) where he needed to be to affect this play (in his gap).

Savage doesn't shy away from anything here (maybe/probably he did on other plays), he simply loses this rep to the WR. He also seems to crash into the WR instead of trying to shed and get to the RB, but it looks like he was trying to force the RB inside as well - again back to the DL/LBs which is probably how the play is designed.

Jaire could be quicker to pursue once he sees the RB keep it inside (and his guys fall over), but at that point, he's probably not going to be able to run through 2 OL and the pile of his dudes to make this play. Having outside contain, it's more important that he plays safety and tracks the RB in case #7 fails to make this tackle. The play cuts off before the tackle is made so I'm not sure what happens next, but yeah he probably could have gotten in on the tackle at the tail end (assuming he doesn't).

I wasn't clear in my post. There were multiple video's discussed. One of Jaire and also Darnell. Not both in the same video. My mistake.

I'd love for someone to teach our DBs that flinging yourself shoulder first isn't a very good way to tackle.

Zero2Cool (22-May) : Savage played last half of season with tear in rotator cuff
Zero2Cool (22-May) : SISSIES!!!!
Mucky Tundra (22-May) : Sounds like both Kraft and Tom were injuried before OTAs began
buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Not serious but waiting for strength and conditioning coach referwnces.
buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Tom and Kraft both injured(pectoral muscle),
Zero2Cool (20-May) : I feel similar about person and product/service.
beast (17-May) : Not sure why a players views reflect on GB... instead of simply on the player
Martha Careful (17-May) : I bet some of us have had 6+ mRNA jabs, a UKR flag on our walls, and still think Fauci has a thread of integrity
Zero2Cool (16-May) : From what I've read, it's all Jets , not us.
CanPackFan (16-May) : Will there ever be a time when Rodgers' whacko views will not reflect on GB? He is the past, thank god.
Zero2Cool (16-May) : Jan 4th gonna be rough with that start time lol
Zero2Cool (16-May) : Packers schedule listed. Boom.
buckeyepackfan (15-May) : Let the leaks begin. Colts @ Packers week 2, Vikings @ Packers week 4
Zero2Cool (14-May) : WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling to Bills
Zero2Cool (14-May) : Jets and Aaron Rodgers open up on Monday Night Football,
Zero2Cool (13-May) : $170 guaranteed. This might impact Jordan Love
Zero2Cool (13-May) : Lions are signing QB Jared Goff to a four-year, $212 million extension
Zero2Cool (13-May) : I know we moved on. That tidbit just makes me a touch happier.
Zero2Cool (13-May) : Sources spoke of many, many times last summer where Hackett called a play, then Rodgers changed it completely at the line
Martha Careful (10-May) : 1. this is true of all our linemen. 2. His run block is fine. 3. If all OL played like he has, we would win SB.
beast (10-May) : Meyers pass blocking is really good, his run blocking is really not.
Zero2Cool (9-May) : Packers have claimed DE Spencer Waege off of waivers from the 49ers and waived DT Rodney Mathews.
Zero2Cool (9-May) : And the OL protections seem to be good.

beast (9-May) : Center is usually considered the easiest position physically if you can handle the snap stuff.
Mucky Tundra (8-May) : Bust it is then

buckeyepackfan (6-May) : The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Julian Hicks, OL Lecitus Smith (luh-SEET-us) and WR Dimitri Stanley
Zero2Cool (6-May) : Petty, but it's annoying me how the NFL is making the schedule release an event.
