Broncos | Coyer wants team to improve tackling

Wed, 16 Aug 2006 00:14:55 -0700

Dave Krieger, of the Rocky Mountain News, reports Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Larry Coyer believes tackling was the No. 1 problem in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 11. The Detroit Lions averaged 4.9 yards per carry against the Broncos. Coyer said, "Toughness, tackling. And it's not what we stand for. I don't care what the game situation is. We're going to tackle, we're going to be tough and we're going to play together. If we lose that, we don't have anything. So to me it's urgent. You've got to tackle. If you look at all the great teams that have been to Super Bowls with defenses, they don't miss tackles. Whether it be Tampa Bay, Baltimore or these great teams, you miss tackles, they kill you. And I think that's what we have to realize."

We're going to tackle, we're going to be tough and we're going to play together. If we lose that, we don't have anything. So to me it's urgent. You've got to tackle."
