Foye Oluokun, of the Falcons, leads the NFL in tackles with 166.

And Foye had a game saving INT today in the last minute of the Falcons game against the Lions with the Lions in the red zone.

I would assume that, based on his very productive four years of play for the Falcons, Foye is about to become a wealthy man, as Atlanta will surely need to make an eight figure offer, with substantial guaranteed money up front.

Quite an American success story, as Foye’s parents emigrated to this country from Nigeria, not too many years ago. I saw Meet the Press this morning, where Chuck Todd offered a platform to the usual assortment of CRT experts opining on this country’s alleged deficiencies. Good to see evidence to the contrary.

Impressive body of work shown by Oluokun, no doubt; $00.02's research is much appreciated; as is the empirical knowledge he's gifted us with- an example being what he recently wrote on that thread about the worth of Ivy League football. However, this tackle stat, as nice as it is, is actually more a function of how much the Atlanta Falcons'defense has been on the field these past four months.

Atlanta's given up 122 more points than they've scored; and the only National Football Conference team with a more negative point differential is, of course, Detroit.

And today, the Lions ran 50% more plays than the Falcons, in 38 minutes of possession to Atlanta's 22 minutes. So while Oluokun's beaten battle fatigue and made the most of his opportunities, he's also been offered many more chances to take down opponents than has, for example, the Cowboys' Micah Parsons.

In the same Falcons game, on several plays, Brandon Copeland from Penn and Foye from Yale were on defense together. Copeland has made a nice pro career for himself.
