Not that anyone here would argue on this subject but this settles it for me. I can at least set my mind at ease knowing I wasn't imagining things, looking for a scape goat or screaming at the TV all for nought. Please take a look at this link to Football Outsiders:
No real surprise but hot damn... not just in the top 10 but numero uno. And if anyone was consoled by the stat right under it for "Stops made on completed passes" please consider that those figures leave Harper with 46
tackles after allowing for a 40 yard bomb"plays" on completed passes. He was always good for that one tackle a game where he could sniff out a WR screen so I'm positive that's where those 16 stops come in to play. But for every stop there was a play allowed for a TD or to set up a TD. Thank God he is gone. Now I can hopefully just worry about yelling at Tony Brown for offsides penalties next year.
