As for Merriman tackle totals being impressive, I despute that since tackles are not an official NFL stat, I tend not to use them when referencing how good a player is. I have seen Jon Beason's tackle total his rookie year being as high as 190. DeMarcus Ware has been a player to be reckoned with for the entire year. Shawne has not.
yes they are...
in fact, I got those numbers from the official NFL web site...
