Bernard Pollard Among Top Tackling Safeties for Titans Since 1990

Posted by Gary Glenn on December 26, 2013 – 3:12 pm

bpollard.20130829_2017Bernard Pollard leads the Titans with 134 total tackles in 2013, according to the statistics compiled by the defensive coaching staff upon film review each week. The number also amounts to a career high for the eighth-year safety, who completes his first year in Tennessee this weekend.

Pollard’s 134 tackles put him in elite company among Titans safeties in the last two-and-a-half decades. Since the start of the 1990 campaign, the only Titans/Oilers safety to be credited with more total tackles in a season for the team was Michael Griffin, who notched 153 total stops in 2010.

Pollard has started all 15 games this year. In addition to his impressive tackle tally, he has contributed a half sack, two quarterback pressures, three tackles for loss, three interceptions, 11 passes defensed, a blocked field goal and a blocked extra point.

Highest single-season tackle totals by Titans safeties, 1990–present (from coaches’ statistics):

153 – Michael Griffin – 2010
134 – Bernard Pollard – 2013 (1 game remaining)
133 – Chris Hope – 2010
128 – Chris Hope – 2006
117 – Jordan Babineaux – 2011
116 – Blaine Bishop – 1998
115 – Blaine Bishop – 1999
112 – Blaine Bishop – 1994
111 – Marcus Robertson – 1994
109 – Blaine Bishop – 1996

    Does that include preseason? Every site I check has his stats not even close to 130, they all say less than 100 total tackles
