Watching Jacksonville running back Rashad Jennings slip through arm tackles and receiver Justin Blackmon break away from defenders was a disgusting sight for the New Orleans Saints' defensive coaching staff.

Their hope is never to see such sloppy tackling again from Saints defenders.

Four days after the Saints routinely failed to bring down Jacksonville ball carriers, the Saints continued to work on their tackling fundamentals, an aspect of the game that was sorely missing in the 27-24 exhibition loss to the Jaguars last Friday.

"Not very good," Saints defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said of the Saints' tackling. "And the guys recognize that. We talked about it. Talking about it doesn't do anything. But this group is one of those groups that when they have something to prove they usually respond.

"Now we'll see what happens in this particular game. I don't think we can win very many games tackling like we did."

That's precisely why the Saints worked on tackling fundamentals for two days during practice this week.

While the Saints didn't take part in any all-out tackling, bringing players to the ground, their defenders did work on proper tackling techniques. They also did multiple drills with wrapping up against teammates and hitting practice dummies.

This is what pre-season is for. Work on fundamentals.

Scheme doesn't really matter if you can't make the tackle.

He could've written "sorely missing for much of last season" instead.

Re: New Orleans Saints working out their tackling issues

I watched the reply yesterday on NFL network they looked bad on both sides of the ball. We made they QB look like a pro bowler and I can't even think of his name but the third downs and the tackling looked really bad. We better get it together fast were going to be on national tv this week against a very good Texans team.

Re: New Orleans Saints working out their tackling issues

At least they're making an effort to correct it. I don't ever recall news of GW working on fundamentals
