Stats can't mislead. Some people just don't know how to interpret them.

Blame people, not stats.

I agree that we haven't faced anybody "great" like Brady or Manning, but Flacco and Schaub are pretty decent and so is Hasselbeck. There's not many "greats", and the one's that are great can pass on any team, having a number one pass D isn't based on if we stop the Pats and Packers alone. I think the CB's are playing well, much better then ladt year. Taylor has been a shutdown corner and Gay and Lewis have played their spots pretty well. This last showing against the titans was great, the pass rush was decent and the corners played well, allowing Polamalu to roam. Hasselbeck threw for 350+ on the ravens and we shut him down well. If the defense continues to play like that we will be a real force this year, and if the offense plays like they did against the titans we can beat the Pats and Ravens. I know it was just one game but the defense played like last year and the offense scored 38 points, and with the right personnel and play calling this team can play like that every game.

My point was that stats are not misleading. They provide a good thumbnail sketch with which to begin any decent football discussion. If there's more to be told, then it should come to light at some point in that discussion, whether it's the ice water in Joe Montana's veins or having to work within a Bruce Arians offensive scheme. In any event, the stats are not misleading.

So no, we're not saying the same thing.

that's true, but they didn't need him with foster torching the ground
Kordell Stewart + Starting QB Spot = 0
