Yeah, its a function of how many times our revamped D line is completely beat and allows guys to get into the backfield. To wit the memorable record breaking tackle ends up being after a first down gainer with the game on the line.
Kind of an illustration of the problems in this D unit.
Even Munoz, a pretty ordinary tackler in my book, and not even what I would consider as an ideal player for a linebacker type role filled in and got lots of tackles. EVen though he flat out misses half the tackles that are out there to be had.
It was pacman out there if you're in the right position.
I'll give another example for those that aren't seeing this clearly. Shaw, our punter, placekicker likely leads the league in saving tackles by kickers. Sure he's good at this aspect, but he gets so many tackle opportunities due to the futility of the special teams unit.
If Sherritt was playing in BC he would have sub Bighill numbers.
