The Eagles caught a lot of flak for not tackling to the ground in Training Camp. They practiced technique every day, but fans and the media worried if this was enough. The answer is yes. The Eagles are tackling much better than they did in the previous couple of years. Part of that is effort, but a lot of it is technique. The coaches continue to work on tackling everyday so this should continue to be an improved area.
