The writers are handling that game a lot better than 80% of the fans that want to start swapping pieces of the defense before it has had a chance to gel.

PFF has corrected the number to 16.

Team - Season Total Missed Tackles
2013 77
2012 128
2011 102
2010 90
2009 90
2008 84
2007 82

Multiply the Atlanta game by 16 games and we would have 256 missed tackles... If we go off the original 23 its 368 missed tackles this season.

Even with PFF reducing their number on this pace 2014 would be > 2012+2011
