Kiwi is a very good LBer and he's progressively gotten better each season.
so let's put this in perspective for the slower viewers
he has 45 tackles kiwi has 7
fine...where are the rest of the numbers?
has this other guy had 90 balls run at him and missed 45 tackles? ...thats not very good...has kiwi made all 7 tackles on the plays that have come his way? pretty damn good....until you can provide ALL the numbers....the stat of tackles doesn't mean anything....Numbers can say anything you want them to say if you only find PART of the numbers.....I am not saying this other guy isn't doing better than kiwi........I'm saying based on the info you have provided...there is no way to tell
But I don't think any of us can sit here and say Bowmann's 45 tackles through 4 games isnt impressive. If our famed run-stopping LB'er has 7 and he has 45, thats impressive for him. Have to admit, no?
And don't worry I'm not basing the Giants or anyone else, just being realistic..objective.
Guys, I understand bashing trolls. And trolls, I understand bashing Kiwi.
But lets both be honest.
Kiwi isn't an above average LB (all around). Hes good against the run, and thats about it. Hes a Team Player most importantly, which is very important. Lets not make him out to be a slouch, because he's not. But lets also not talk about him like he is Sean Lee or Lance Briggs, which he is not.
If he was so great against the run why did almost every team we faced run all over us last year. And where was he against the run sunday night?
I swear if you make one play behind the line of scrimmage as a defender Giants fans will love you forever.
