The best part about this whole argument is that "Teddy doesn't throw down the field" is based on an offense he was in where no one threw down the field. Brees averaged just under 1 more yard a completion and was one of the better QBs in the league in an offense built completely around him.
Yet when we adjust for some stat about adjust yards depth of field Teddy ranks lower on it, just behind Brees. Which some how means Teddy is trash, and therefor I guess Bree's is also trash?
The problem is too many people don't have a fuggin clue about reading stats due to the fact that they don't understand correlation.
ESPN would have you convinced that anytime the Cowboys start 0-4 without their starting RB until game 5, they're destined to win the Super Bowl and be one of the most dominate teams in the NFL from Game 5 on. The people who don't understand the massive flaw in statistics like that, are the same people throwing some of these stats around trying to prove Bridgewater is bad.
