As someone who hasn't read the thread, is bored and wants to post, what I believe Austin is saying is that statistics can be manipulated fairly easily and aren't entirely representative of the truth. As an example, one might see Matt Cassel's 27-7 td/int ratio and think "Golly, that's not half bad. You might be on to someting there." However, when evaluating more closely, one can see that that simply isn't even remotely ****ing close to being the case.

I'm not saying that's what happened here but statistics are consistently manipulated to appear better than what they actually are.
