5 Things the Board has taught me

The board has taught me 5 valuable lessons that I was unaware of prior to this year:

5. A QB is responsible for INTs

4. Interceptions are not a good way to judge a CB

3. A RB is not responsible for his YPC

2. Sacks really don't tell how good a DE pressures a QB

1. A season is over after 8 games

4, 3, and 2 are all 100% true in a general sense.

top cornerbacks don't always have a ton of picks. a running back's YPC is just as dependent upon his offensive line as it is upon him. DEs can get a ton of pressure and affect the quarterback without necessarily getting sacks.

these are basic, fundamental things.

The rules above apply only when a season has gone to poo, make sure you know that part as well.

yep and 5 has quite a bit of truth to it as well. doesn't tell the whole story, but it tells a lot of it.

QBs not reading the defense properly or just making bad throws will cause them.

None of them are absolutes. #2 and 4 are probably true more often than the others. On the other hand, a RB's YPC in the short term doesn't tell the whole story, but over a couple of seasons it's probably a good way to separate out the special ones from the JAG's. #5 can be deceiving as well if the QB is being asked to make desperation throws when playing from behind.

The least true is #1. While our season may be over, plenty of teams that don't have great records now can still rebound. Who would have thought the Giants would be the champs last year after week 8?
