Eagles fans have two schools of thought on live tackling during training camp, and that opinion typically depends on what year you were born. Honestly, I don’t care if the Eagles tackle or not. Unless you’re Asante Samuel, you don’t make it to the NFL if you don’t know how to tackle. There are already enough ways to get injured on the field. I don’t want DeVonta Smith to miss practice because some fourth string safety trying to make the team had a point to prove.
If you are one of those people that can only get off on the sound of pads smacking and lifespans shortening here is a vicious blindside hit from Nick Sirianni on a defenseless coach:
