Re: Are High Tackle Numbers for Safeties a Bad Thing?

As a rule in general, when your safety is leading your team in tackles it is not a good thing because the rbs are getting to the second level or the receivers are making catches in the secondary. Either way, the opposing offense is moving the ball and sustaining drives. Last year I would be willing to bet that the redskins were one of the worse teams when it came to getting the opposition off the field on third down. I loved taylor and he was my current favorite redskins player, but I don't think that your safety leading your team in tackles is a good thing from the standpoint that he is your last line of defense and the rest of team is being sliced and diced apart.
