Tony Dungy concerned about rules on hitting and defenders going low
NBC NFL analyst Tony Dungy joined the show to talk about Week 1 in the NFL.
Dungy said there is reason to be concerned about rules on hitting. “[Bucs safety] Dashon Goldson make two plays yesterday where I don’t know how you coach them any differently,” Dungy said.
Dungy said that there could be an unwanted consequence: “They’re going to start going low and you’re going to see more low shots. “
Dungy also remarked on how impressive the 49ers were. He said that Anquan Boldin blew him away and he was surprised the Niners didn’t miss Michael Crabtree at all.
Dungy weighed in on the Steelers’ Week 1 loss to the Titans. He said the injury to Maurkice Pouncey injury was devastating because the Steelers have become an offensive-oriented team and lost that defensive identity.
Dungy is excited to see how fast the Philadelphia Eagles play tonight. He said that they have the right offensive personnel to run Chip Kelly’s system. Dungy said the Eagles’ problem is defense.
