Being unable to maintain drives via the run and getting behind can force the need to pass and can still result in a loss.
Guido.... correlation not equaling causation discussions are a lost cause, I have tried beating that dead horse. Some people don't search for answers, they seek out rationalization to justify their feels.


Stats with interpretation = Good
Stats with rationalization =

Here is a player, his stats, and a fun rationalization.
2019 Regular Season Stats
Eli Apple: 4 passes defended, 0 interceptions
Shy Tuttle: 4 Passes defended, 1 interception

Shy Tuttle should be playing CB instead of Eli Apple.
Stats can be a dangerous thing in the wrong hands

Rushing attempts = WINS? There is this.......
Just stop with your logic crap, it does absolutely nothing to further the agenda or make people comfortable with their woke ideas.

If they read it, they will just dismiss it (judging from the replies after you posted the link, that is precisely what they did, dismissed the article).

I posted the same article weeks ago when the issue first arose. I worked for over 25 years as a data analyst and dealt with data correlation on a daily basis. Part of my job was to keep people from making the mistake of inferring cause based solely on a finite sets of data. These people were usually either misinformed or lazy. Sometimes they were simply dimwitted.

On the other hand, I would at times use this false correlation/cause type of scenario to imply a result that really did not exist. This was usually used in sales and advertising.

Nope. It doesn't make me mad. It makes me more sad that it leads the ignorant into believing the incorrect and repeating it as gospel to other uninformed who then take it as fact.

"So you gotta ask yourself, does Brees still scare the other teams?"

"Well, does he?"

Brees has a laser pointed at his back every Sunday so does every other guy that on sports center day in and day out. Some in awe some just jealous as hell it comes with being great. Buuuut like mike Zimmerman said he was glad to see brees than laysome taysom for the last drive.
