At this point, it doesn’t matter nearly as much.
Clearly there is a much bigger gap in what Houston wants and what the Colts are willing to pay. That’s the issue. Dollars and cents, not dollars and sense.
Keep in mind "they" use most of the stat services themselves.
Sure they have the best feel for performance since they see them everyday, but a good portion of today's reporters and commentators publish stats all the time, It's just part of sports now.
I prefer to stay informed and stats and grades are easy to find. It's not for everyone though.
I just do not have patience to read a lot of that stuff. I have been like that since I have been a kid. I hate reading and lose interest. If people like to read about all of that is fine. I just skip over. The stuff I read needs to be short and sweet. If the team is winning and fun to watch that is all that matters to me. I will leave it up to coaches and GM to determine if someone is playing well. Only they really know.
