re: Now that the regular season is over: A comparison of Harris and Etling - N.O. via West-Cal
Good stuff. Again, very close. I also checked QBRs. Etling (2016) - 72.1; Harris (2015 only) - 68.2. At least with numbers, not a lot separates the two....

re: Now that the regular season is over: A comparison of Harris and Etling - N.O. via West-Cal
Some other interesting stats would be the TEAM's total yards in games started by each, QBR (some deride this stat but it does at least try to take into account game situations, rushing and other factors besides "passing"), and quality of opponent, especially good wins and particularly bad losses (if...

re: Morning Joe on the recount effort - N.O. via West-Cal
"It's mind boggling to me how the media continues to double and triple down on the insanity that led to Trump getting elected in the first place." It is stunning. It has no impact on the core Trump supporters or hard-core left, but for those more in the center, it really exposes the incredible hy...

re: The narrative that poverty = violence & murder - N.O. via West-Cal
Zach, Murder rates nationwide have been falling for decades. Not just here in NOLA. This has been widely reported for years. If you think it's all a hoax and that there are more murders now than in 1990, then there's not much point in engaging. ...

re: The narrative that poverty = violence & murder - N.O. via West-Cal
"hopelessness & despair = violence & murder." I politely challenge you to test your assertion against evidence. I suspect that, at a minimum, you will find that something else is going on. ...

"The fact is that murder is up because single parenthood rates are up." But murder isn't up unless perhaps you mean VERY recently. Murder rate has been trending downward for a long time....

re: Shocking statistics about black slavery liberals will NEVER admit - N.O. via West-Cal
"The only example of a New World slave population that did not die out after importation of slaves was abolished (i.e., grew by natural population increase) was the Southern USA" How can this possibly be true? Brazil, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica?...

re: The End of Identity Liberalism - N.O. via West-Cal
Prior to the election, when I was expecting a Clinton victory, I mused over the possibility of an explicitly anti-identity politics candidate. I think it is an idea that could be tried as a campaign theme. The risk is that you would offend certain groups but I think there is an opportunity to appeal...

re: #NotMySpecialTeamsCoach - N.O. via West-Cal
Special teams have been atrocious. Decent chance we are 6-4 and very much in the hunt with decent special teams. Instead, we are all but out of it....

re: Cable News Ratings - Monday, November 14th - CNN is in YUGE trouble - N.O. via West-Cal
I want Lemon to do well as he is a La. guy ... but he's just not that good. I am not nearly as hard shell conservative as many on this board, so I don't mind SOME liberal slant, but Lemon slants hard without being particularly insightful, thoughtful, or quick with his questions. Did anyone see his ...

re: Everyone is spread - N.O. via West-Cal
"that will take time....our offensive line is a patchwork of mostly guards and a center playing out of his natural position...." No, no, no. I agree with what you are saying about the OL, but we have plenty of ability on the OL to muster something better than 6 first downs and 125 yards. That is ...

re: LSU up to #16 in CFP Rankings - N.O. via West-Cal
"Can someone explain to me the selection committee's reasoning on not dropping Clemson and Michigan out of the top four after losing to unranked teams last week?" It's pretty simple. They think that as of right now, they still have better resumes than the teams behind them. I can't say they're wr...
