He was leading the league in tackles from pretty early in the season, even before all the injuries to the D-line so I dont think that's the big difference. I look more towards our incompetent offence which left our D on the field for that many more plays and that many more chances to make a tackle.
Sherritt is a great player and I'm glad we have him, he's one of the best in the league at his position. He's not clear and away the best, you certainly could make an arguement for Bighill in BC but let's face it Sherrit had a great year and with the record it's no surprise he beat him out for an award. Bighill will likely get a chance to play for the only award that matters, the Grey Cup, so while I respect the arguement I wont be crying for Bighill any time soon.
