How bad is it when a guy from your hometown team shows up #2 in tackles and you have no idea what position he plays?

Well done to DT Mathew Thomas, 7 tackles in a game for a D-Lineman is well done.
The same to Jake Ceresna, number 4 on the Sack list despite having played less games than anyone else on that list....

With Peters and Carnell, Toronto's secondary is getting dangerous good.

Sask, Hamilton and Ottawa have players who are at or near the top of these lists. Winnipeg players barely crack the middle. I guess we're doing something wrong.

The clear message to the teams that have losing records is DON'T copy what the top team in the league is doing with their defence. Your stats will suffer.

Heh, yeah one of the reasons some players have high tackle stats is that their team is often on D because A. their offense sucks and/or B. they can't make tackles until after the other team gets their first downs.

That's very true. Getting a top ranking for that deficiency is a wee bit misleading... but I really shouldn't complain.

Tackles are great for D-linemen (usually for no gain or loss because of where they are on the field). Also great for linebackers, since it typically means they are limiting gains on the ground or the short-yardage passing game.

Tackles are not so great for defensive backs, where it usually means you tackled your receiver after he successfully caught the ball. Wes Sutton leading the Als in tackles is thus not a great reflection on our team.
