Which player sounds better according to the stats?
It is intersting to note that Greenbays yards per rushing attempt given up went from 4.0 (2005) to 4.1 in 2006 when Pickett was there. He did not help improve the yards per rushing attmept. The Rams however got slightly worse they went from 4.7 yards (2005) to 4.9 in (2006) (Kennedy Factor). I am not attempting to say Pickett is bad but I do believe we sometimes over rate his true talent.
The Stats above belong to:
A) Kennedy 30 solo tackles 1 sack.
B) Pickett 31 solo tackles 0 sacks.
C) Jenkins 32 solo tackles 3 sacks.
D) Glover 34 solo tackles 5.5 sacks.
I don't know the stats on the number of snaps each played but I do think Kennedy, Jenkins, and Glover would have fewer snaps do to their rotations. Which would lead to fewer oppertunities for tackles.
**Disclaimir the stats above do not include assisted tackles.
