You are a fiend, an enemy of stats? Not according to some of your posts. :huh:

Thinking I knew what he originally meant, I was intrigued enough by BBJ's post to look it up and had to laugh at the example in definition 5. Then realized it wasn't as clear what he meant as first thought. Are you relaying your "OCD-like" need for stats as #6 implies or boasting as #7 does?

 

5. Informal. a person who is extremely addicted to some pernicious habit: an opium fiend.

 

6. Informal. a person who is excessively interested in some game, sport, etc.; fan; buff: a bridge fiend.

 

7. a person who is highly skilled or gifted in something: a fiend at languages.

#6 ...others would be the ones to decide if #7 applies

I'm actually about to get started on what I hope to be some serious stat crunching. So I have two questions for y'all.

 

One, where do you guys get your stats from? Is there an good place to find easy to manipulate stats? nfl.com doesn't quite do it for me as far as ease of pulling stats goes.

 

Two, how do you guys store and manipulate your stats? Excel documents? Anything more sophisticated?

Well, I like profootballreference.com for a nice repository of raw stats. Other than that, :wacko:
