    what does it tell you about the DL when the LB are making all the tackles?

    To anyone that understands football, it says that the d line is doing its job. That job is to plug running lanes and to occupy o linemen and keep them off the linebackers so they can make the tackles. Any time linebackers do not lead the team in tackles there is a glaring problem with the front 7, be it the d line or the linebackers themselves.

    Pretty rare to see a defensive line lead in tackles. If a defensive line is functioning as it should, the LB's should lead. If nothing is functioning as it should, the secondary does.

    This. Plus it is a lot better than seeing the secondary leading the team in tackles.

    I guess I took the optimistic route and thought this as well. The guy from Oregon State ahead of A.J. is a DB.

    I think the MOST shocking stat in there was the fact that we aren't dead last in punting average!

    How can 17 teams have a worst punting average than 18 yds? That is amazing.

    Does not having to punt in a game mean you have a 0 yd average, or what?

    I think that probably has to be the case. I can remember VERY few times where I saw an 18 yard punt even in high school games.

    That said, I am not as worried as a lot of other people seem to be about the punting situation yet. It was the first game, he bobbled the snap, and looked like he was rushing the kick to avoid the block. One kick isn't enough to judge by, but I will say they better have the blocking/snap figured out by Saturday because Iowa has shown they can get after punts. I just don't see it being a problem yet based on the one kick.
