Default Re: You tell me.

I have no agenda here.

All I'm pointing out is that numbers can be used to support or attack any position one may have and it's the number one reason why I don't care about statistics.
Someone pulls out some statistics that make Arians look bad, others (like me) can scrounge up some statistics that make him look good.

Actually, my favorite "statistics argument" around here is the "#1 Defense" argument that everyone falls back on so that they don't have to actually look hard at LeBeau.
You can hold onto that stat all you want, but anyone who really thinks we actually had a defense that was REALLY a number one defense needs to have their head examined.

But the "statistics" say it's true, so no one has to go beyond that.

The word, "Statistics" is just "bullshit" with an extra syllable.
