We defined a "broken tackle" as one of two events: either the ballcarrier escapes from the grasp of the defender, or the defender is in good position for a tackle but the ballcarrier jukes him out of his shoes.The study used statistic gleamed from every offensive play of the season (special teams plays were not included) to determine which running backs and receivers broke the most tackles.
Ahmad Bradshaw broke 38 tackles, good for fourth in the league among running backs. Mario Manningham was tied for eighth among wide receivers/tight ends with nine broken tackles.
The Giants offense totaled 80 broken tackles, tied with the Jaguars for third most in the NFL behind the Buccaneers and Eagles. Of the Giants' 1022 offensive plays, a Giants player broke a tackle in 71 of them (6.9%), fifth highest in the league.
Do what you want with this information...what it tells me is that the Giants have some slippery players, including Bradshaw, Manningham and Hakeem Nicks. But we already knew that.
