Huh? So is this some sort of theory that extrapolating a small sample size doesn't always end up with a true representation of reality?

Pfft... yeah, and tomorrow we're gonna hear that the world is round. Haha... suckers.

Most yards, least TD's?

When did garbage time start today?

5 minutes into the game?

Who cares, just tell me how many wins we have. What is your forecast for that, statistics mean little.

Apparently you missed the Orton on pace for 5,555 yard all time record thread, the one I couldn't bump because the search engine crapped out.

I believe Rivers is well on pace to beat his record though.

I was pissed when Denver hired McD because I wanted Raheem if we were going with a young coach. After the first 6 games of the season, I thought it was time to eat crow, Raheem's team looked awful and Denver was 6-0. Since then McD has proven to be who I thought he was as has Raheem. The sad part of the McD hire is that the damage he has inflicted will take years to address. The guy is an excellent OC and QB coach, but absolutely stinks as a talent evaluator and as a HC (it is amazing the hubris this guy has considering how little he has accomplished). If he is not able to turn this $hit around, I hope he is fired at the end of the season (I don't want him anywhere near the draft, forget another chance, Shanny did far more with less in his final season, and with a bunch of young guns learning their trade), and doesn't get a HC job for another decade (if ever)...yes that is petty, but considering his actions he deserves no less.

Don't make a Shanny draft comparison, it weakens your argument. It was Shanny's drafting and FA selections that sent this team on a downward spiral for 10 years following the SB's. What a great football coach but leave it at that.

As bad as he was for about 6 yrs, he never decimated the team, and they were always competitive. Moreover, in his last yrs his drafts were amongst the best in the league (despite picking DL players Bates wanted). So no, it does not weaken my argument. McD's performance in the draft and personnel has been among the worst in the league, and his team has performed far from mediocre. He is 4-13, we are talking Lions, KC, Raider territory in the past few years. McD's arrogance is astonishing to put it mildly.

Quick....how many other QBs in the league account for over 85% of their team's total offensive yards?

People are taking out their McDaniels' frustration on Kyle. Which is, in some regards, completely fair, even though it's really none of Kyle's doing. He's just trying the best HE can.
