There have been a ton of comments on the board this season about ATL and missed tackles. When watching a game it seems to be a HUGE issue. Sometimes it's easy for the eye to be fooled by the heat of the moment and things not to be as bad a we think.
A week ago ProFootball Focus looked at all of the teams in the NFL and their frequency of missed tackles. The results can be found here:
In case you don't want to look ATL was ranked as the 8th worst tacking team in the NFL. That equates to a missed tackle percentage of 10.83%. Some other interesting results -
PHI is the second worst tackling team
NO is the 5th worst
TB is the worst and SF is the best
