I see someone making tackle after tackle in crucial times ( 87 tackles).
Look at JPP he had 16.5 sacks last season..That's great, but I do recall him always causing havoc in the backfield disrupting the passer and runner. I look at the overal picture not just sacks. But like I said, I don't follow every team closely, so it's unfair for me to say anything about Aldon and Mathews which also have ver 10 sacks.
You said sacks are for me and one of if not the overrated stats in football. That's pretty clear to me they don't mean anything to you.
Also you say you don't recall JPP causing havoc in the backfield. Did you miss the Week 14 game at Cowboys stadium last season. He was in the backfield a lot including getting a safety.
