[QUOTE]ALL : Curious- Anyone else get stomach pains upon reading any (All) of Parilli's posts when they purport to offer some accurately conclusive take on some (All) given subject(s)? I do...but I'm cursed with this whole "vailidity" ideal on matters. Sorta svx really... Alright, babe's argument holds water IF and Only IF you prescribe to the assumption that in any given game and for any given team, Each and always- For EVERY single team, and for Every single game, each team is allocated the EXACT same number of Offensive Plays... ALL of them, Like I said: Say it's 45 Offensive Plays Total (for instance). For babe's thesis to hold even moderate value, it would have to mean that every single week, ALL year long, The New England Patriots are allotted the exact number of Offensive Plays each and every time... But not just that...nope: Likewise, Every OTHER team is ALSO allotted no more and no less...every week, and every team, and all year long... Good theory, huh? Fact is, it would be 1 thing IF just the theory was garbage, and thus, the "objective" numbers offered, were therefore unfitting towards the greater thesis... But sadly no, this isn't enough...Because WAY, way, wayyyy more often than not, Babe doesn't even grant you the actual same numbers that he's referencing... Yea. Here goes: Indeed, 1/10th of what he's initially offering as factual evidence, IS actually true- Which is, THAT during the 2011 Regular Season, NE was ranked dead middle really, In Overall Rushing Attempts per any single game average: 27.4 Attempts Per Game here on the running front=17th outta 32 Teams. So...by this rationale, NE therefore must make it up PRECISELY in terms of their Passing Attempts per game, right? Yup...NE's 15th then- Gotta even out precisely that way... Ahhh, no- In 2011, NE ranked 3rd overall in Passing Attempts per game, with 38.2 Passing Attempts Per Game (Regular Season). 38.2 Passing Attempts Average (3rd Most- Det & NO @ 41.6 & 41.4 <Att/G />) 27.4 Rushing Attempts Average (17th Most out of 32 teams). 2012 Loss to The New York Giants on Superbowl Sunday, Numbers: 41 Passing Attempts 19 Rushing Attempts 2012 Regular Season Loss to Pittsburgh 50 Passing Attempts 23 Rushing Attempts 2012 Regular Season Loss to New York Giants 49 Passing Attempts 24 Rushing Attempts 2012 Regular Season Loss to Buffalo 45 Passing Attempts 26 Rushing Attempts 2007 Superbowl Loss to New York Giants 48 Passing Attempts 16 Rushing Attempts ~~~ of note: He WILL try to garnish this with some number, category, ranking, average, and/or stat... Understand- Either the crediblity of the stat WILL be ENTIRELY unfitting (see also- Fox News), OR He will provide you with made up numbers in order to- well...pfff, just sad really. But make no mistake, They'll either be angled to fit his need, as he "overlooked" an actually fitting determiner statistic, OR he'll just add/subtract whatever he wants in an attempt to forcefully make his point..."Valid" (i.e. look them up yourselves...every time).

E'gad, you are an insufferable bag of wind.
I was pretty straightforward.
We run about the same number of times per game as the league average.
We have 4 plays a game more than the league average.
We pass 4 times a game more than the league average.
So, in essence, those 4 extra plays a game we have, we pass. Otherwise we are the league average.
Do you think BB is a nut case for giving the 4 extra plays a game over the league average to Brady the highest rated passer in the AFC instead of BJGE and his 3.7 yac?
