Arizona Cardinals Individual Players And Missed Tackles

On Friday, we went over the team's overall with tackling efficiency and how often they missed tackles in 2011. We saw that 2011 was pretty solid, with tackling stats that are comparable to the best defenses in the league.

Today I present the individual defensive player numbers, as compiled by Pro Football Focus. I'll include the comparable 2010 numbers as well.

You just may find some surprises.

If you notice sometime, Clark Haggans was so much better in 2011. It is impressive that Vonnie Holliday hasn't missed a tackle in two seasons.

Kerry Rhodes, though in limited time, was much better in 2011. I look forward to seeing that replicated in 2012.

Richard Marshall saw an improvement under Ray Horton. Rashad Johnson and A.J. Jefferson were very good in the secondary.

The biggest surprise based on both seasons? Michael Adams. He has a reputation for being a great tackler. The stats don't back that up.

Washington saw a dip, but Paris Lenon was better.

Patrick Peterson is not among the worst in the league, but is in the bottom half. He will have to improve.

Now I leave the observations to you all. What do the number say to you?
