Actually, no.

Forcing fumbles is not an art, it is pitiful tackling because players haven't been taught the fundamentals. For every "forced fumble" there are at least 4 or 5 missed tackles by the clowns trying to be all cutesy and pull that kind of stunt.

If you tackle correctly, the fumbles will take care of themselves.

I must say that I can see some bit of art to forcing a fumble, but certainly not the fumble in question in this article. That was a last ditch effort of "I completely give up. If this doesnt work, nothing will." And behold, they got lucky.

Well, the 49ers have a goat, alright. Maybe some glue on his gloves would help?
