Correlation Does Not Equal Causation, MK. 389298283

The USA Today NFL blog has noticed something very important. Something that could change the way you think about football. They have some quotes from Matt Schaub, wherein Schaub is typically casual and sedated, but I'll let you read those on your own, because they are about to lay an enormous stat on your little heads. Striking you at the very core of your existence. I'll let them tell you:

Of the top 11 individual rushing performances through the first three weeks, nine have occurred for winning teams, including Chris Johnson, Rashard Mendenhall and Adrian Peterson in Week 3.

The league's most prolific passing games to date stand in stark contrast. Of the 11 passers with the biggest yardage days in 2010, nine have toiled in a losing effort, including Drew Brees, Chad Henne, Eli Manning, Kyle Orton and Philip Rivers -- the latter two both surpassed 450 yards -- last Sunday.

Striking evidence that the league is turning around completely! I hope you've all learned by now that there is no reason to ever let Schaub throw the football. Just run Arian Foster's legs until they're nothing but bloody nubs on the sidelines.
