2010 NFL Stats That Really Matter

By Bill Lauris
NFLnews2010.com

In NFL News, the 2010 season, like others in the past, is producing some stats that are quite misleading. Thus far in the NFL 2010 season, this is especially true with everyone’s favorites --total offense and total defense. They are almost worthless, yet media commentators like to use them as the ultimate benchmark, to prove their point.


If a team is leading the NFL in total offense, is it safe to conclude that they are the best offense in the league? Or, can we say, the team allowing the fewest yards is the best defense in all of professional football? Even more, what if a team leads the National Football League in both of these categories? Is that the best team in pro football?


If total yardage is a good barometer for evaluating a team’s ability, then the San Diego Chargers are the best team in the National Football League. As of this writing they lead the NFL in both total offense and total defense.


Look a bit further and the Chargers are the best passing offense. And yep, you’ve guessed it, they’re the best at defending against the pass.—in total yardage.

If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard commentators on NFL Network, CBS, ESPN, NBC and FOX say, ‘you have to have a dominant passing game to win in today’s NFL’, I’d be living next-door to Bill Gates Read More (http://www.nflnews2010.com/2010-nfl-stats-that-really-matter.html)

Yep, he did say it. You know, he is an insightful commentator. :tt03:

Some of those NFL Network guys sound like someone wrote a script for them to follow.

Game time soon... Can't wait to see if the D does as well as I think they will.

When the season is about 16 weeks old, come back and we'll discuss it then.

Not the bettin kind, but lay 1000 to 1 you will be talking about the Steelers defense and how dominant they are.
