The wrong kind of stats

John Fennelly recently posted a bunch of stats over here and he prefaces the entire post with: Here are some facts for you to digest….don’t read too much into them…..

Statistical Oddities (and More Stats) for the New York Giants.

Anyone who has been following the blog closely since I joined knows that I am a statistic’s junkie. I don’t think Stats are Tell-alls. I trust my eyes as well. I trust what I see and look for statistical data to back up what my eyes are telling me, sometimes all stats do is open […]

The one that challenges us for NFC Supremacy? Let’s take a look: QB: Jake Delhomme, ever the warrior, has thrown for 2,853 yards, […]

‘Flat,’ My Ass!

One of the “genius” reporters — after the Giant’s 26-23 overtime win over The Bengals — asked Tom Coughlin, “Why do you think the Giants came out so ‘flat?’” To which Coughlin replied with one of those icy, pre-softer-gentler, Tom Coughlin scowls. “Don’t give me any of that ‘flat’ stuff! Those guys (The Bengals) had […]

The UN-Sexiest Really Good Team Around

Before ‘Kick-Off-Weekend,’ if you were to ask any pro football “expert” at ESPN, the NFL Network, MSG, SNY, NBC, CBS or Fox to name the top five “sexy” picks for 2008 they’d probably say: The Cowboys, The Colts, The Patriots, The Chargers, The Jaguars — not necessarily in that order. Other “sexy” picks might be […]
