    we're in the 20's in basically every category (with exceptions), but we're 8-2, stats are meaningless

    7th in offensive points scored and that's the most important category.

    They flashed up that Romo/Romo/Sanford had the top 3 ever passing games on thanksgiving, all over 400, all LOSSES

    Fantasy football has corrupted people. It's no longer about winning the game. It is about who scores the most fantasy points.

    While I agree with what you say these statistics do at least start the conversation of how good/bad a team is because the absence of any statistics at all would not make for good football debates

    To start that discussion:

    Ravens rank #9 in points allowed per game: 20.6
    Ravens rank #21 in 3rd down conversion rate, allowing 40% on the season (but 35% in the last 3 games.) Compare that to 32% allowed over the whole course of last season).
    Ravens rank #2 in T/O ratio, averaging +1.2 turnovers pergame.

    Only numbers I care about is Win vs loses which is 8-2 right now. How many yards did Joe throw for that year we beat the Pats on the road in the playoffs. I take a win with Joe throwing for 200 yards over Joe throwing 400 yards and losing. Would I like to see Joe put up big numbers? Of course but we been winning without it.

    Seriously man. I got no end of shit for moving band practice earlier or later due to game time but no one blinked when the guitar player cancelled a practice for his fantasy football draft....

    He's a bum. Can't even throw for 400 yards? Let him walk next season.

    I blame this more on scheme than skill, but he's started every game since 2008. You figure he would have lucked into a 400 yard, 4 TD game by now. (He has thrown for 3 TDs and rushed for a TD in a game.)
    He threw for four TDs against Chicago in '09.

    He would have done it by now if it wasn't for those meddling kids.

    You mean those meddling kids who prevented a bunch of interceptions and losses along the way?

    I thought he also threw for four TDs against the Vikings in 09 as well? Maybe not. I do know that Matty Ryan didn't have a 400 yard game until this year, a nice match for his five interception game.

    He's a winner, that's all that matters.
