What do you want me to say? I honestly don't think we can have a quality football discussion.
I get you love the Pats and you hate the Jets and that's cute and whatever. I am sure that's important in your life and that's great. I mean if you want to point to the fact the Pats have played a tougher schedule then the Jets thus far, I can't argue that. But this idea that you can compare how one team did against another when all the variables could be different is worthless.
You said in your post that you were '"dumbing it down" for this Jets fan that I guess was left speechless by your amazing system. Well, OK...but then why are you dumbing it down for us?
To be honest this goes beyond my disdain for the jets. It is more that I felt they don't deserve their wins. Yes, they have capitalized on things that other teams couldn't including the Pats, so in that sense they earned it. But it was frustrating to watch three weeks in a row the luck factor go so hard one way. There is always a variable left out of statistics or any comparision. I could spend the next week breaking down every single game of both teams on the season, injuries, weather, home field advantage, SoS, common game scores etc. In the end, you are correct, you cannot compare everything without a variable being left out. Does that mean we should not bother?
On that other site I WAS dumbing it down because the quality of football knowledge over there is clearly lower. I think I explained it and I may be wrong but I was asking the board what they thought? So while you gave criticism, it really wasn't constructive, just insulting. Again I never called it a system, and I wouldn't. It's a simplistic analysis of two teams and how they did score wise in similar and common games. That's all. No magic here. Obviously.
PS Of course we can have a quality FB discussion, bring something to the table. I tried, you consider it stupid and worthless, let's see what you got.
