You can't lie with statistics. 80% of studies have shown that only 55.6% of people can misrepresent statistics 19.6% of the time when the wind blows from the north at 13 mph on a full moon. So there.

Moron, it specifically states it's a SE wind during a crescent moon.

I'm still a member of the Royster clan. We still have slots available in case anyone is interested.

They can't even understand what a regression analysis is, much less t distributions, variance, and expected value.

I agree.

Torain ran through holes that were huge against the Rams that either of the other two Backs would of done the same. Hightower healthy is better then Torain.

No I meant role, as in your role at The Warpath. Noob poster. Respect your forum elders. I never said Rex should still be the starting QB. I am saying Beck isn't that great of an alternative.

You wanna get punched in the face or kicked in the nuts? Neither is great, just like our QBs...

Fo realz! We're going to blame the receivers when they drop TD passes from Beck, but not when they drop them, or bounce them off their chest for INTs, from Rex?

Oh well, I just want whoever is behind center to play well.

Except for me. Knowing such things is needed for an econ major like myself(and I'm now associated with every other economics dude out their, including Ryan Fitzpatrick and Bill Belichick).

Re: The Gameday Thread: Philly at Washington

I'm guessing a fair amount of football fans have taken a statistics course in college.
