One big hit across the middle early in the game will make opposing attackers hesitate.

What we don't need is an enforcer. A guy sitting on the bench for 55 minutes isn't going to deter anyone.
Agreed, it needs to be a team mindset. Designating one guy to take care of it does nothing in terms of keeping the other team honest.
