Is anyone keeping score on this topic? Please add my name to the, "Ray Lewis is the best LB in football today," list. Is it possible to be the best at something and still be over-hyped? I don't believe so.Those that dispise him simply for his tackle-dance, I think I can add a bit of perspective to that. Being a Charger fan, I always loved it when Junior Seau (the LB that Lewis took the crown from) would make a big play and then do that arm-punch tackle-dance that he always does. Now that he's on the Dolphins, I don't nearly think it's as charming as I used to. Point being, those kind of things, when anticipated by the team and it's fans, brings an added energy to the whole place. If you like the guy making the play and his team, it's electrifying. If you don't, it's obnoxious.On tackles...Tackles are an interesting stat that few really understand. If an offensive player chases a guy out of bounds without touching him, he is credited with a tackle. If a guy is percieved to help stop the forward momentum of an offensive player, even if he's the 4th guy to get to the play, he gets credited with a tackle. There are lots of instances when a tackle is awarded without much of a play or contact. That said, when you look at any guys stats and see 6 tackles, there's a good chance that only 2 or 3 of those involved solid contact and only 1 or 2 were solo tackles. So when a guy consistently leads the league in tackles, as Lewis does, it just averages out that he makes more plays than anyone else on defense in the NFL.
