Lacking stats for actual playing time for each player, I did a quick approximation (using the opponent's Average Time of possession * 18 games). Dividing tackles by that and both Sherritt and Bighill average the same 0.23 tackles per minute of playing time. So they were both tackling machines, both had a handfull of interceptions, and Bighill had an amazing 9 sacks.
Of course Sherritt missed some time with injury, so his actual stat would be better if we had the right data. Plus I think Bighill benefits from a better defense to pressure the QB, and a better supporting offense to keep his group fresh.
