Panthers 3rd worst in NFL at Missing Tackles

4

Interesting article from ProFootballFocus, which compares the 32 NFL teams as to who's missing the most tackles. We all know the Panthers have whiffed a lot, but here's how they put the numbers to it. See their list at the bottom of the linked article. Missed tackles, for some unexplained reason, are up league-wide, from last year (9.89% of all attempted tackles have been missed this year, up from 9.37% - that's a 5.5% increase, BTW). Lack of training camp, I guess. But with the Panthers missing 12.46% of attempted tackles, we rank 3rd worst, behind only Tampa Bay and Philly. It's so basic, but this is why we can't hold the leads we've so often had, late in games. How to fix it? I don't know. I'm not a Defensive Coordinator or position coach. But if I were paid to be one, I'd read this and fear for my job.
