Hi Al... sorry for not getting back to you, I don't check my e-mail often... I did disappear from b/r... I've been trying to reconcile my goals with writing, work and family, etc... there are so many Eagles writers on b/r I felt like my preferred topics were being beat to death... so I was considering reinventing my writing but I just didn't feel compelled to write about anything other than the Eagles ... I always appreciated your support and it was a motivating factor for me to continue at the time, or I may have ceased writing earlier... so where I go from here with writing, I don't know... I guess I just wanted to say hello!

Al, thanks for replying to my article about Brady.
There's just one more step to the equation ...
Yards Per Completion is the stat I want everyone to consider. That is true. But then I want everyone to carry it one step further and subtract the YAC Yards (Yards After the Catch) from that stat line.
Doing this math is critical to understanding my stance.
Since YAC Yards is a stat that is not readily tracked and available from the credible stat sources, this is virtually an impossible task to achieve.
But it is clear to me that Brady's Patriots are among the league leaders in YAC yards each year.
Take Brady's already stunningly low Yards Per Completion (a stat that is calculated with inclusion of the YAC yards it commands) and subtract out the percentage of that already low Yards Per Completion (in Brady's case) that consists of YAC yards (or yards the receiver adds after the catch) and what you end up with is a QB among the lowest in NFL history when measuring how far the ball is travelling from his hands into the hands of his receivers.
Because of this fact that Brady completes the shortest passes of more than 95% of the QB's who have played the game, it is only testimony to his high completion percentage. Brady completes a higher percentage of passes than most QB's because he throws the football a far shorter distance than most QB's to get those completions. He takes less risk than most QB's who ever played the game.
So his "greatness" lies in the fact that he completes an awful lot of easy passes.

I guide to the great BR world.
