Stephen Tulloch vastly underestimated Jake Locker's speed. Watch the GIF!
I'll be honest, I really don't like Stephen Tulloch. He just always seemed like a baby while he was here. He constantly complained about his contract, and while he played well, he never made any game-changing plays. Then he looked dumb when he had to take a 1-year deal in Detroit before last season because he couldn't find anyone to give him a long-term deal.
All of those are reason why I love this GIF so much. You can see Tully take a flat angle to try and tackle Jake Locker only to realize that Locker blew by him.
The other thing that I love about his run is that Locker doesn't slide. Most of the time I am yelling for him to slide, but here you can see that he takes advantage of guys counting on him to slide. With the emphasis in today's NFL on protecting the quarterback, Locker will have chances to make plays if he is smart when guys are expecting him to slide.
