Post Tackling Efficiency
Quote:
Then Football Outsiders editor in chief Aaron Schatz produced a piece for ESPN Insider that reminded me about addition by subtraction.

The Dolphins' defense should be substantially better simply because linebacker Akin Ayodele and safety Gibril Wilson aren't on it anymore.

Schatz compiled data on the defenders who allowed the most broken tackles,
...

Ayodele was the worst among all linebackers, with 17 percent of his attempted tackles ending up broken. Wilson surprisingly didn't make the top 10 among defensive backs

...

and new Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby tied for sixth among the most efficient tacklers at their position, getting their tackles broken a mere 3.3 percent of the time last year.


In the secondary, Dolphins backup Jason Allen rated tops with no broken tackles, while safety Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell was sixth best at 3.7 percent.

...

On offense ... The Dolphins were tied for 15th at 5.6 percent.

Defensively ... The Dolphins were tied for 18th at 6.1 percent

Yermiah Bell is awesome. I love the way he plays the game.

Yeah, that's because he took such bad angles that he couldn't even get his hands on the guy to even attempt a tackle. The guy was that friggin' bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :embarrassed:
