USA TODAY Sports

We’re going to continue our look at last season’s defensive numbers on this Hump Day morning. Today, I’m offering a look at the NFL teams that had the top ten most tackles last year. The first four are likely to surprise you. Awful teams, but apparently great tacklers. Say what?

On July 1, 2008 I typed into Google "How Do I start A Blog" and I started my first website called "Miami Mitch's Place" where i shared my college football Picks and predictions as well as opinion. By the Fall I had heard from many that the title made it sound like the site was about Miami so I changed it to "College Football Place" (cfbplace.com), After the 2008 college football season I change focus and launched CBBplace.com, it wasn't long after that when I realized I just wanted one place to add all sports, and that's when Sports Chat Place was born.
