But there's also a bit of what they do that's a judgment call. Someone has to sit down with each play and say, "Oh, yeah. An average player would have gotten X yards on that play."
So... while I like their stuff and I think it's interesting, the bottom line is wins.
At this point, we're winning and I'm loving that.
I'm not going to complain if Shane Lechler is the Superbowl MVP.
