If you look hard enough, you can pretty much find a number or stat that will support any argument you want to make. Nothing proves that better than this CBS Sports tweet comparing two very different NFC North quarterbacks: Kirk Cousins and Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers and Cousins are the only quarterbacks in NFL history have ever reached at least 26,000 passing yards with a passer rating of at least 97.0 through their first 100 starts. That's obviously impressive to some degree. But it totally ignores the context of their careers and there are quite a few other stats that have been conveniently left out.

It does have a chance to become the NFL's version of the infamous Thaddeus Young graphic from 2018, though.

Here's another comparison between Rodgers and Cousins. Rodgers' Green Bay Packers currently have the NFL's fourth-best Super Bowl odds at +1200 on FanDuel Sportsbook, while Cousins' Minnesota Vikings are ranked 19th at +4600.

That one kind of says it all.
