i just looked it up, that is 2 times better than rice's broken tackle rate

well then, that's great. when are they going to bench Rice for this kid? also, I wonder what the rate would be if he carried the rock 25 times a game for 16 games? probably a realistic 7.5%

ah thanks guys! I had no clue honestly how to judge that one.. and good point Joe, those numbers can be quite misleading without the proper sample size.

Now I feel all smart and stuff. My 3rd grade education is finally paying off!

I was wondering the same. I assume its good or they would not post it but who know? he is no Ray Rice so I guess it only matters to the few.

I have Rice in a keeper league, so I guess this is good news for me as I'll likely be picking Pierce up somewhere aloong the way!
