SJ - December 6, 2021

Raiders running back Kenyan Drake left Sunday's loss to the Washington Football Team early after suffering a broken ankle.  After the game he tweeted out that the form of tackling used when he was injured is to blame.

Drake then called for the NFL to make the form of tackling illegal.  What is the form of tackling?  Pulling a guy down to the ground and landing on their legs....

It sucks that Drake was injured on the play, but I don't see how you keep guys from landing on legs while making a tackle.  Does he want to wear flags or make it two-hand touch?  It's a rough sport and injuries happen.  They can't outlaw tackling.
