I'm not sure what you're trying to convince me of. Rating would certainly be a more meaningful stat, so why not post that? My point is that YPG can be heavily influenced by "garbage time," which is why the Chiefs look like a good offense when they're clearly crap. Likewise, Manning has played from behind in three games this year, which is where a lot of those yards came from.

Does that mean it sucks to have high YPG? Of course not. But it's just not a very good indicator of an offense (or offensive player)'s true strength.
