Bears are ‘tackling too high,’ according to Matt Eberflus

From the first day of youth football, players are taught proper tackling techniques. And while the quality of coaches can vary with every level of football a player participates in, you’d think that by the time they reach the NFL, they’d have the fundamentals down.

In Week 2’s loss to the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago Bears’ defenders struggled with that basic aspect of the game. Coach Matt Eberflus said Wednesday that there’s at least one easy-to-fix reason.

“We are tackling too high right now,” he said. “We’ve got to tackle lower. We’ve just got to do a better job of executing the way we tackle.”
