GOOD MORNING SKA USERS. IT’S TUESDAY AND THAT MEANS IT’S TIME TO ARM YOURSELVES… WITH KNOWLEDGE!
What a tremendous football weekend! The kind of weekend that reaffirms my love for football and statistics. It reminds me of why I started doing this in the first place!
For example: My stats have been saying for months that the Arizona Cardinals are MEDIOCRE!!! Now it’s finally becoming evident on the field. KNOWLEDGE!!!
I remember as a lad, when I first started copy/pasting stats from ESPN, and my father told me, “BKOB… You can’t have the worst quarterback in the division AND the worst running back in the division, and still WIN the division.”
I still believe those words to be true! I still believe in the America that my father envisioned! I still believe that the Cardinals will choke away the division lead, and the Seahawks shall lead the 12th Man back to Superbowl Glory!!! CAN I GET AN AMEN??!!! Wooh! I gotta wipe the sweat from my brow.
Ok, before I get to the stats, I’d like to warn some of our readers from the Bay Area. A lot of these stats are graphic in nature, and hard to look at. They are not intended for the squeamish. Viewer discretion is advised.
Now, HOW ‘BOUT THEM STATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Rams had themselves a veritable Statistigasm on Sunday in a home game versus the Oakland Raiders. The Real BKOB Report has a policy about not discussing the Rams… But when they win a game 52-0? I mean… dayum!
In fact, Tre Mason’s performance vaulted him past Marshawn Lynch on The Real BKOB Report’s Rusher Rankings. THAT was painful, and hopefully temporary.
Meanwhile, Russell Wilson is still the top passer in the division, and the Gaep continues to widen. Sorry 49er fans, I tried to warn you. Knowledge can be a very painful thing.
We’ve reached December, the month that will decide everything in the NFCW. And right now The Seattle Seahawks appear to be the dominant team in the division. Their defense has resumed the Championship-type dominance from last year, ranking at-or-near the top in several key categories. The offense is resilient and opportunistic, having held Chris Borland to only sixteen tackles. All systems go during the most important stretch of the Season!
And now, how about your feedback? Hurry up and comment, before Charlie posts his predictions!
