FSU’s Jimbo Fisher: Need to work on tackling


Miami Herald Writer

No. 8 Florida State has seven consecutive conference games to prepare for following Saturday’s 54-6 demolition of Bethune-Cookman.

But after watching film of last weekend’s win, coach Jimbo Fisher also has a list of things for his team to work on. Chief among them, tackling.

“I think some of it’s poor angles, like in the pocket we’d attack the low shoulder of the quarterback instead of the high shoulder and then we’d spin out off over the top — which is very correctable,” Fisher said.

“A lot of little things, we just need to make sure our angles in pursuit [are better] when you go right at a guy instead of staying out wide to close down, but we’ll continue to work on all those things.”

Edwards returning

Mario Edwards Jr. missed Saturday’s game after having pins and a plate inserted into his hand. Fisher said he expected the sophomore defensive end to be back at practice this week.
