Pretty damn even imo. Sheritt is the right choice for the award - remember if he didnt get injuried and miss game time - he would have shattered the record.
One thing I'm sure we can agree on, is it'll be fun to watch these two go head to head for years to come
Yeah this time thanks for actuallly responding with something.
I agree that they are somewhat equal with the exception that Sheritt cheats on more, overreacts as I've stated, gets sealed out easier because he ends up on the wrong side of the play. Its that Sheritt reads so quickly (sometimes the wrong play) that he ends up out of play and watching a TD run against cross right where he should be. Sheritt plays a higher risk/reward game than Bighill and is first to acknowledge it.
Also that he's played multiple games with close to 10 tackles where by his own admission he played poorly because of the ones that got by him. (yeah he's a perfectionist as well and will keep getting better)
Bighill is better as the contain assignment guy. He gets an assignment and that player is dead, shutdown. Closest thing to automatic out there in the CFL. Sure having a highly skilled D around him affords more opportunity to play within constraints of the system. Sherrit more likely due to breakdowns around him being more likely to overcompensate.
Its an interesting discussion and yeah I agree its a pleasure to watch either of these players going forward. Plus that I think they both end up in the league the rest of their careers in what will be a classic matchup. If Sherritts body and health hold out he's going to be one for the ages. His focus, determination, and hardwork is unparalleled.
