All tackles aren't created equal and they shouldn't be categorized as such. I wish there were run stop tackles and tackles after a completion. Maybe even categorized depending on how close to the line of scrimmage they are. Not sure how it would work, but currently tackles is the most meaningless stat there is, for every position IMO.
