Checking Up On Eric Berry’s Rookie Campaign


Here is some food for thought before the evening ends. 

Back on August 10, 2010 I posted some rookie safety stats in order to gauge just how well Eric Berry has to be in order to have a decent rookie campaign. Here they are again:

Ed Reed; Year 2002, 16 games, 85 Tackles, 1 Sack, 5 Interceptions

Kerry Rhodes; Year 2005, 16 Games, 85 Tackles, 1 Sack, 1 Interception

Sean Taylor; Year 2004, 15 Games, 60 Tackles, 1 Sack, 4 Interceptions

Troy Palomalu; Year 2003, 16 Games, 38 Tackles, 2 Sacks, 0 Interceptions

Donte Whitner; Year 2006, 15 Games, 37 Tackles, 0 Sacks, 1 Interception

Adrian Wilson; Year 2001, 16 Games, 32 Tackles. 0.5 Sacks, 2 Interceptions

Brandon Meriweather; Year 2001, 32 Tackles, 0 sacks, 0 interceptions

Jarrad Page, Year 2006, 16 Games 30 tackles, 1 Sack, 3 Interceptions

Jon McGraw, Year 2002, 15 Games, 30 Tackles, 0 Sacks, 1 interception

Bob Sanders; Year 2004, 6 Games, 29 Tackles, 0 Sacks, 0 Interceptions

Antrel Rolle, Year 2005, 5 Games, 28 Tackles, 0 Sacks, 1 Interception

OJ Otogwe; Year 2005, 12 Games, 11 Tackles, 1 Sack, 1 Interceptions

Bernard Pollard, Year 2006, 16 Games, 10 Tackles, 0 Sacks, 0 interceptions

We are eight (8) games into the season and here are his current stats:

8 games 45 Tackles, 2 Sacks, 2 interceptions 1 FF

I don’t know about you, but I’m impressed.  Once he gets better in pass protection, this guy is going to be one of the best safeties, if not the best, in the entire league.  How can you not root for this guy?  Have a good night.
