    If you guessed ZERO you would be correct

    With Arizona he had 22 turnovers as well as 25.5 sacks
    with us he has 4 turnovers and 6 sacks

    Not sure why we have to pay Dansby for his production while he was in Arizona
    You'll have to forgive Karlos, it's hard to catch or strip the football when you're PLAYING WITH A TORN BICEP MUSCLE. Most players sit out with that kind of injury but he played through the pain on a losing team.

    Dansby has found himself in great position about 5-6 times this year where he could have made a play, a game changing play, and did not. The amount of times he has failed to corral "that" INT has been alarming but also ridiculous. He is way overdue and I expect him to make a couple of those plays next season. The timeliness of these plays would have been perfect to win a couple more games, just didnt happen.

    Ok that's fair but it means he's tough, he need to make game changing plays, they could've trusnik in there and gotten the same results.

    Our endzone defense has been ELITE. Unquestionably ELITE. Dansby has been a big part of that, imo.

    I'd guess this season his bicep had a lot to do with it, you don't want to tomahawk a ball Carree when your bi is hanging by a thread. Overall since 2008 the Miami D has not been a turnover machine at all and that needs to reverse in trend. Someone in VIP pointed out that Miami forced a fair amount of fumbles they just didn't recover them and if you believe the stats at some point that tread will fix itself since the odds of recovering a fumble is 50/50 and Miami's recovery rate was something like 30%.

    I've been hard on Dansby as a leader but he seemed to play and act much more the part of a defensive leader and that is what he needed to do.

    Dansby needs to make more plays period, but scheme could have a lot to do with his lack of impact plays. People should also remember that Dansby was playing hurt the last quarter of the year. The injury definitely affected his ability to get off blocks and make tackles.

    MLB's rack up tackles in this league. Everything is funneled right to them..It makes me laugh when ppl point to Safties and MLB racking up tackles...tackling is important but turnovers are better..

    More Sacks would be great as well but I am not sure how often Dansby is being sent to the QB.
