    Are interception return yards counted in the offensive yards for Green Bay?

    I must add; a few of those links have it so wrong, I sit here wondering what Brian Burke was thinking to ad them.

  6. Brian Burke says:

    JMM-No. Interception yards are not counted as return yds.

    Anon-Not everything I link to I agree with. I realize that at most site a link is an implicit endorsement. I just link to topics that interest me and are relevant to football stats. Please feel free to disagree.

    And Happy New Year to everyone. Thanks for making the site possible and for all the great comments.

    Fair enough. Again, thanks for your work.

    Oops, I meant not counted as 'offensive' yards.

    The article on Newton is good. But further, between him (a rookie) and guys like Brees, Brady, and Rogers, is it time we go back to pre-1978 with rules regarding passing? It no longer takes 22 players to win; it takes 1 and 21 reasonable fillers.
