Danny Granger is not some sacred cow that's putting up gaudy or even passable stats anymore. So it isn't like the are losing a big piece besides an old Lebron-instigator.
And ET is shooting %42 this year while shooting an increased load from last year. So he's not [i]as[/i] arse as people thinks h...

Since this is the time(playoffs) where we build a QB's narrative and whether or not he is GOAT-Status.
I decided to look at one of the other QB's mentioned when talking about the top 5 all time:
Did he ever get grief because he didn't "really" win a superbowl? He was pulled midway t...

EXACTLY, I knew I enjoyed your posting for a reason Soph.
This is pretty telling as NYA accounts for all the sacks that Cutler has taken, and he STILL comes out ahead of Josh McCown.
And I'm guessing that Fox got a A in prob/stats but didn't actually take any of it to heart, as the first lesson...

That would be Luke McCown who was in Tampa and actually tossed passes.
You can't just hitch your horse to Josh McCown (34+ and 1 good fluke year) and then hope to find a QB through the draft. Just because Russell Wilson happened, doesn't mean your will find success all the time. You could end up ...

The better way to figure it is out is by saying like so:
Basically you have 5 pairs and you choose 3, the number of combinations is 10
Then within those 10 triples you have 8 possible partner combos (aaa,aba... Etc) combos. So then

In this case a team from a higher class has an inherent advantage (more schollies). So on avg if A and B Schools have equal talent per player, wouldn't we expect the school with more players to win? I'm not saying penalize FCS, we are saying penalize FBS schools for winning games where they have an...

He also Fumbled and got sacked 5 times, I'm pretty sure Espn weights all sacks evenly (unlike "clutch" idiocy for other things), and a middling <7.0 yds per attempt with 5.2 yPa when adjusting for sack yards.

Passer rating doesnt include Fumbles/Sacks, so that's why it looks so good (he fumbled twice and was sacked 7 times, not all his fault but he isn't blameless either)
He's a QB that performs best when everything around him is above-average, not when he has to carry the skills of the other players,...
