3rd and 10, you tackle the guy after a 5 yard gain. That doesn't help win games?
Guy is running down the field, miss the tackle and he goes to the house, you make it then team gets a turnover on the next play? Did the tackle not help?
Blitz is called, DE gets clean release, QB steps up in pocket completes 80 yard bomb. DE gets a QB pressure stat, CB gets blamed for allowing the completion.
4th and 10, LB tackle rb out of the backfield after 8 yards? That doesn't count?
I could on and on.
