    at the very end of the column

    In a battle of best, Tom Brady may get the nod - Page 6 - Boston.com

    The guys from FootballOutsiders.com, which is run by Sharon native Aaron Schatz, half-jokingly suggested that football should have an equivalent for basketball’s assist - giving the ball to a teammate and putting him in a position to make plays. One way of doing that is dishing out assists to quarterbacks on any completion with at least 10 yards after the catch. Well, Tom Brady would win that going away. He had nine “assists’’ against the Broncos to put him at 80 through 14 games. Nobody else had more than 67 (Matthew Stafford of the Lions and Drew Brees of the Saints).

    best thrower in the league to receivers in motion? i think yes

    Aaron Schatz and his innovative statistics have always been helpful in viewing the NFL from a different POV..

    This year, his overall team efficiency had NE #4 in the NFL.. he had the O #3, D #30 and ST's #5.....

    Counting assists are pretty much the same, a different way of looking at success..
