Hilton's snap count did nothing but infuriate me. Maybe Ballard's absence increases that number?
Loved #8 just because of the phrase "Wallace and Davis." Not sure if it was an intentional White Christmas reference or not, but appreciated it either way.

If you listen to Dakich regularly, as I do, you know that he addresses this issue rather frequently. Usually, when he addresses issues in the media, he begins by saying something along the lines of "And I guess I am part of the media now." In other words, he does acknowledge that he is part of the media. However, long-time listeners of his show know that when he criticizes "the media," he is speaking to a more narrow group of media members than maybe it seems.Additionally, for those that don't follow Dakich on Twitter already or only recently started, this is an old question that he has addressed numerous times both on twitter and on his show. My guess is that he was just fed up with it and reacted poorly.

Fox Sports Indiana/Ohio has a bad habit of cutting away to commercials about 5 seconds too early while Thom Brennaman is still describing what happened at the end of the inning.
This personal pet peeve is now officially a minor inconvenience. Now I'm wondering which poor soul loses their job over this debacle.

Great breakdown. When can we expect defense?

I thought for sure it was much MORE complicated than that?

@Colt_Following What's really frustrating is when I'm arguing with my Patriots fan "friend" and I start rattling off all these stats (recently these have been more RG3/Luck debates) and then simultaneously offer up arguments that completely undermine all the stats I just gave. This season, what I've been more enlightened to more than anything is how much more you know about your team than anyone else who is not a fan. I actually think First Take is really enjoyable to watch and I tend to lean to the Skip Bayless sides of their debates, but like any ESPN analyst there are numerous things I disagree on. What's astoundingly frustrating this year, as opposed to last year when I agreed with Skip on all the Tebow stuff, is realizing how little he really knows about how the Colts, and specifically Luck, has been playing this year. Not necessarily by virtue of his stupidity, but probably more so just the occupational hazard of (supposedly) having to keep up with 32 teams and all their stats as opposed to just one. It can only be expected that both him and Stephen A only have time to look at such non-evolved stats as passer rating and TD/INT ratios. (Although, I have to say there's no excuse for glossing over ESPN's own QBR system which clearly gives Luck an advantage to not just RG3 but many others).

Great read. Loved how you approached the advanced stats. This is the first year I've kept an eye open on those numbers and like you have been confused at how our defense, while undoubtedly bad, is the worst in the league in both rush, pass, and overall. I feel a lot better now about my instinct in the face of those numbers.
Luck's only about 450 yards shy of Cam's record.

Also consider his Titans roots.
More than that, I'm sick of celebrating (from both teams) after making a tackle on a punt return. No reason to celebrate within 10 seconds of punting the ball.
He also tried to go all USC on that DB who picked him off before he got pushed in the back.
Even Skip Bayless gave a half-compliment to Luck today: "Luck threw 3 more INTs but cancelled 'em w/ big clutch rally -- vs. crumbling 4-8 Lions."Although, now that I read it again it sounds more like a back-handed compliment.
The Beard sounded like Will Forte's character on SNL when they commentate on those women's bowling matches and have to endorse female products.
@smonroe We're screwed.
