The Black Magic Of StatsOctober 10th, 2012
Determined to take over the NFL and all sports and create jobs for themselves catering to the spreadsheet minions who only care about fantasy teams, stat geeks are distracting fans by the millions.
Joe is reminded of this Satanic cult today by the writings of Scott Smith on the cutting edge Captain’s Blog on Buccaneers.com. Smith tries to get Bucs fans excited by the NFL statistic that tells us Vincent Jackson has yet to drop a pass this season.
The minute Joe read that, Joe instantly thought of Jackson dropping at least a couple of catchable balls on opening day. In Joe’s mind, and in the minds of legions of fans and media watching that game, Jackson made those first-game drops.
But here come the stat geeks to keep the world in order. What would we do without out them?
The guys taking a drop away from Jackson are probably from the same geek squad that doesn’t believe RGIII was sacked at the Redskins 12-inch line.
