FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- One of the points of emphasis for the Atlanta Falcons going into this season was improving tackling.
In fact, coach Mike Smith said new tackling drills were introduced this offseason to get the matter corrected. But a tackling dummy doesn't compare to live action.
Smith gave his assessment of how his team tackled in Friday's 16-10 preseason victory over the Miami Dolphins.
"I thought that there were some very good examples of good tackling," Smith said following Saturday's practice.
