Watch this third-down stop.
Steve Johnson's transition from "running forward" to "sitting on the ground" is quite abrupt.
Here Landry's explosiveness nearly makes up for a derf by Kyle Wilson.
Almost made it.
This is what happens when someone tackles you with a 15-yard head start.
Here's a closer look.
Landry's football persona is all-around intense, and he celebrates after laying Jackson out. He later said he didn't know Jackson was injured.
Speaking of terrifying running starts...
Same thing here. Fitzpatrick scores, but pays the price.
Landry's hyperaggressiveness does have its drawbacks, though. On this play, he hits Bills RB Johnny White after he's already gone out of bounds, meriting a 15-yard late-hit penalty.
And his tendency to look for the big hit can backfire in the open field against more elusive players.
But overall, Landry's technique tends to work more often than it doesn't.
A closer look at the forced fumble shows Landry leaving his feet (legally, because the receiver isn't defenseless) and attaching himself to Spiller, forcing the fumble through sheer physical power.
Because of the violence with which they play the game, these types of guys end up getting fined and vilified by the NFL, and not without reason, since it is the league's job to try and protect its players. But they're useful, and until that fact changes, this kind of athlete will stick around.
