And please keep in mind that he was also having to make those tackles with one of our rotating d-lineman sitting in his lap after getting blown off the ball.
Sharper was all over the field last year. We were in most of our games last year with offenses not completely dominating us as you make reference. Try the fact that our offense could not stay on the field or make critical first downs such as overtime in the New England game.
Sharper clearly outplayed Zach Thomas, who got the nod based on past accomplishments, while Sharper was having to play under the obscurity of an expansion team's sophmore season.
Sharper was the man last year and hopefully will do it again this year. Keep an eye out.
