Who tackles the quarterback?

Any defensive player can tackle the quarterback.


What do the tackles do in football?

Tackle is a action not a PERSON!just to let u know When referring to a person on the football team, the "tackle" is a lineman. There are offensive and defensive tackles, though only the defensive tackles are permitted to tackle anyone. The name dates back to the time when the same player had to play both offense and defense. The offensive line looks like this: End - Tackle - Guard - Center - Guard - Tackle - End The tackle's primary job is to block, either to create holes for the running backs or to protect the quarterback from the blitzing defenders. Tackles are big but generally are quicker than the guards, as they are responsible for outside protection and therefore need to respond quickly to any moves made by the defensive ends. On defense, the defensive tackles play on the inside of the defensive line. Defensive tackles are generally bigger, to clog up the line and prevent the running backs from getting through.

How big should a defensive lineman be?

For defensive tackles: Just about the size of Fred Robbins I would say but it really depends. As long as you are big and fast and able to rush the other team's quarterback, I don't think you would have any problems being a defensive lineman. For defensive ends: I think it would be more important for you guys to be taller than chunky, however, this does not mean that youdon't have to be big to be a defensive end. you should be able to pass rush just as well as defensive tackles can.P.S., These answers are correct because I actually am a defensive lineman in the football league that I play in so I just thought this would be the best question for me to answer on this website.

Most tackles in NFL history?

DIFFICULT TO FIND A CORRECT ANSWER. The NFL did not start keeping the tackle as an official stat until 2001. Prior to that most teams kept their own tackle stats and has their own methods of identifying tackles. So you probably won't find stats for guys like Ray Nitschke, Nick Buoniconti, Harry Carson or Chuck Bednarik who played many years and probably built up a lot of tackles (over 1000). ESPN has been compiling team tackle stats for about 15 years so they probably have the closest numbers for current players. It is also why you might not find all of Seau's tackles from his first 4 years.Numbers as of 03/09*Randy Gradishar - 2,049*Scott Studwell- 1882Junior Seau - 1826Jessie Tuggle - 1809Zach Thomas - 1737Derrick Brooks - 1698Ray Lewis - 1637*Mike Singletary - 1,488Donnie Edwards - 1487*Jack Lambert - 1479London Fletcher - 1362Lawyer Milloy - 1309-no longer activeNOTE: Derrick Brooks has 2,198 "STOPS" according to certain websites. STOPS include "half-tackles" and "gang-tackles" while Brooks has been involved in 2,198 tackles these are not his tackle statistics according to what the NFL officially considers a tackle. His NFL stats are closer to 1700 if ESPN's numbers (closest to official NFL) are used between '95-'01. In order for Derrick Brooks to have 2,198 tackles he would be averaging 157 tackles a year. If you take in to consideration that his stats from 2001 forward are official (NFL) then according to these tackle stats Brooks was averaging 185 tackles between '95 and '01. This is highly unlikely and an incredible physical feat. Important to note tha Brooks has never lead the league in any season for tackles and has only been in the top 10 once in his career. It is also important to note Zach Tomas and Ray Lewis entered the NFL at relatively the same time and have consistently been in the top 10 in tackles every season since with a few exceptions.
