We are just talking about his tackling. If he can't tackle how is he going to better next time?
Problem is he can tackle, he just had a horrible game last night. Huff missed 8 tackles last year, Ed Reed missed 15. I'm guessing a lot of people are on the Earl Thomas is the best safety in the NFL right now bandwagon, but that dude missed over 20 tackles last year. Going further into the numbers, Huff missed 5 in 2011 compared to Reed's 11, and they both missed 5 in 2010.
Huff is not an exceptional player in any sense of the word, he's the textbook definition of average. He was not solely responsible for the loss, it was a craptacular chasm of fail in the secondary last night. I think he's better than he played last night, based on the rest of his career instead of just one game, and that was on a bad team that makes players look worse (for the most part).
