An interesting statistic from Profootballfocus.com on the number of missed tackles from the safety position. I was fully expecting Jon McGraw (7th) to be on the list for the higher missed tackle to attempted tackle ratio, but I was actually surprised (and disappointed) that Kendrick Lewis (3rd) was as high on the "bottom" list.

:lol:
I was really confused looking over the numbers because they were not in line with I recall seeing on the field for several players. Then I scrolled back up and looked at the date of the article - May 18th, 2011. Those numbers from last season! I thought Lewis played much better this year. I'd like to see what the 2011 season numbers look like.

Yeah, I read the article and it says "2010 numbers" right at the beginning, and I didn't pick up on that, either. It wasn't until I looked back at the date it was published that it sunk in!
