What is the deal with people in sports latching onto any statistic they can conjure up and then treating it as a decision making tool?
- No coach has ever won a Superbowl with one team and then come back and won it with another.
So what? How big of a sample size is there? Isn't it like 12? There is only one Superbowl ever year. Think about it.
- QBs in the first round aren't always great. Tom Brady wasn't first round.
No shit? You mean you can get a good QB in the first round, or in the 4th? C'mon, this is really suprising to football fans?
I guess what I am getting at is, would some people seriously even consider things like this when choosing a coach or a quarterback? I certainly hope not. How about simply considering the person, their abilities, and how they would fit with the planned Superbowl-winning team of 2012? (That's right, Superbowl 2012!!)
