Can people who hate stats stop coming into threads about stats to tell us how meaningless stats are?
Thank you. Frankly I don't understand the surge in anti-intellectualism this board has seen the last month. We have a ground breaking team at every level- players, coaches, and front office. Advanced metrics (Advanced NFL stats, PFF, FO, etc) love our team, and those metrics pass the eyeball test in flying colors. Smart people are saying very nice things about our team right now. Why not embrace it?
'Cause back in my day, ya stood in line for 4 hours in the freezing cold to get a seat on the steel bleachers to watch your team on a Sunday. For a nickel, you got a seat, a game program, a box of popcorn and a whoopin'. We didn't have no fancy stats. The Quarterback ran the ball, the halfback ran the ball, most players played offense and defense, and you were lucky if you got to see more than one touchdown a game. And that's the way it was and WE LIKED IT!
