Y'all keep saying "knock the ball loose...separate the ball from the guy", I thought they were supposed to stop
the guy with the ball and IF the ball comes loose it's a plus if
they retrieve it. I thought it's stop yardage if they're running, try to sack the QB, or try to intercept during passing. If the objective is to separate the guy from the ball, no wonder they're doing their best to level the carrier by knocking his block off.
