Why is Matthew Slater a Pro Bowl special teamer? His tackle on punt returner Jacoby Jones (8:21 remaining) is one example. Slater worked away from a double-team at the line of scrimmage (Chykie Brown/Jeromy Miles) and outran everyone up the middle of the field, located the ball, took a perfect angle and broke down perfectly from a full-sprint to bring down Jones after just 2 yards — fighting through a stiff-arm. It doesn’t get any better than that.
