    You are probably wondering who the hell is "Aaron Schatz". That's because he's a nobody. I probably shouldn't even mention his name, but this guy obviously wants some attention, so here it is.

    Aaron Schatz is a writer for foxsports.com. And we all know what some writers trying to make a name for themselves do. They write ridiculous articles going against common wisdon and common sense just to be noticed. Sorry dude, but you're a fool, and your latest article just proves my point.

    L.T.'s TD mark is great, but he's had help


    Schatz bases his whole article bashing LT on something called DPAR. What the hell is DPAR? Glad you asked. DPAR is one of those crazy forumlas that is supposed to take everything into account from where a play happened on a field, to what a player had for breakfast. Now because somebody had too much time on their hands and came up with a formula to determine which RB had the best season ever doesn't mean anything. Schartz can't even explain the formula properly, yet he seems to believe this single forumla can sum up a RBs entire season.

    Sure we live in a microwave, fast food world, where we like everything quick and easy to understand. How much easier can it be than if someone else uses a formula they can't explain to sum down an entire season to one number. We can all understand one number, right? This might work for those casual fans that don't want to think much about the game.

    According to Schartz and his DPAR calculations, Priest Holmes had the best season ever for a running back in 2002. Does that take into account the fact that that Priest Holmes ran behind a much better line than LT has ever had in his career? They had two of their o-line start in the Pro Bowl that year (William Roaf & Will Shields). The Chargers have a good o-line this year, but not as good as KC in 2002. The Chargers won't have two o-line players in the Pro Bowl. Does the DPAR take into account the fact that LT has been the most consistant RB since he's been in the league? Does is take into account the class LT has shown during this amazing season?

    Any real NFL fan knows this has been an amazing season. In a era where teams scheme a plan particularly to stop one player, in an era when it's not easy to just punch it in for a TD because defenses have learned to hold strong and take advantage of the shortened field, this season has been simply amazing. LT has made history and yet some writers will go to great lengths to try and knock this guy down simply to make a name for themselves.

    Aaron Schartz, you've made a name for yourself alright, and that name is classless. NFL fans can see through your little numbers game and we will remember the day we saw LT break the single season TD record. So continue to spoon feed those that don't care to think for themselves. The rest of us know that, you sir are an idiot.

    You have to take it for what its worth, nothing.

    Yes LT is the greatest RB of all times, one of the best players, and a hell of a lot better the Homes. However we must still consider other RB. Sure no one really looks up to Priest Homes. Sure his records arent that of LT or many other RB. Hell maybe he will never even get to the Hall of Fame. He wont even be remebered after a few years, and yes all this is better evidence than some Jackass like Aaron Schatz made up. However.. damn sorry can't defend this guy.

    Hey Aaron Schartz I have a scientific system to come up with how incompetent some sports writers are.. Guess where you rank?

    According to this Aaron Schatz DPAR.

    Travis Minor is slightly better than LT is because Travis has made more in the line of his DPAR than LT has this year.

    It get even worse Travis Minor has according to DPAR has more in the line of total ten and greater yards per atempt than LT has as per there careers from DPAR.

    As per DPAR Travis Minor is one of the best out there per career numbers. Give me a break.

    So in my opinion Aaron Schantz just does not know the thing that I do while on the porcelain thrown grunting out its orders.

    Another person that is trying to make a name for himself and doing a lousy job of it. Mediocrities King is DPARS motto. That is just my opinion.

    I watched a lot of football this weekend. I ate a lot of food and drank many beers while watching a lot of football...

    consequently, my shatz yesterday had little chunks of dpar in them. Yuck!


    :trout: I'm trouting myself for that one.

    I thought about taking my rant that direction. I decided I wasn't going to do it no matter how many chunks of DPAR are in my Schatz. :tdown:

    Schatz knows what he's talking about and FO is a great website which clearly shows exactly how efficient teams and players are.

    All I care about is YPC. Touchdowns don't matter to me, since touchdowns are a product of way to many things. I could care less about LT's touchdowns but I am pleased with his being able to #1 Get 5 yards per carry #2 Be an efficient goalline runner #3 Be an efficient receiver #4 Protect the football.

    You want to compare this with baseball.... a lot of people will judge how good a pitcher is by how many W's he has, or even his ERA, but the most revealing stat is a pitcher's WHIP.

    Whatever. Everything is relative.

    I've come up with something better than DPAR. This will blow your socks off. It's a great new formula that can determine how great a running back is for his entire career, not just a single season like DPAR. It takes so many factors into account that it would be awefully difficult to explain here, but it's called DASHITO (Damn All Stats, He Is The One). The DASHITO system is designed to be the most comprehensive and accurate rating system ever devised to rank a NFL running back.

    The DASHITO system is far superior to the DPAR system of ranking for several reasons.

    1) It only takes complete seasons into account.
    2) It only takes concecutive seasons into account. Ths is important because consistancy at this postion is oif the utmost importance.
    3) The math that goes into the DASHITO system takes more into account and is even more complicated that the DPAR system, so it has to be better.

    Here is the main formula DASHITO, but unless you have multiple degrees in advances mathematics, I'm not going to take the time to explain it to you.

    [(YG + (TT * 100))/PBB]*(.02)

    Here is the DASHITO score for LT for seasons 2002-2005 = 109
    Here is the DASHITO score for Priest Holmse for 2001-2004 = 22.06

    Now I thought this might prove the LaDainian Tomlinson was a better back, but I'm blown away by how much of a better back. The scaring thing is that when this season is over, those numbers will be eligable to be used in the the DASHITO system.

    I don't think there is a running back that has ever played in this league that will beat LT's numbers, but I'd love for any suggestions. Pick a running back and I'll run the numbers. The numbers don't lie. As of right now however, I have to delclaire LaDainian Tomlinson to be the best back to play in the NFL.

    Here are just some of the statistics that were calculated into the DASHITO numbers.

    I just ran the numbers for Shaun Alexander. His DASHITO score is 43.11.

    That's almost double Priest Holmes, but not even close to LT.

    I get it!! And I must say:

    D.A.S.H.I.T.O. is the ****!!! Nice work, man.

    PS - please work up a DASHITO on a OJ Simpson. He played on some awful teams, but I'd really like to know what that slasher's score is.

    So I guess when Schatz said Eric Parker was one of the most efficient receivers in the league last year, he didn't know **** either right?

    Even a monkey pulling **** out of his *** can get it right sometimes. If you're going to try and defend this turd, please use some kind of logical arguement instead of just switching the subject to, the old he "was right another time" schtick.
