I think that what he's saying is that, although there are certainly cases where one team had an advantage on an opponent based upon matchups (above and beyond what's reflected in overall team ability), you would be hard-pressed to pick out which ones were genuine advantages, and which ones were the result of small sample sizes.
If that's not what he's saying, then I'll take credit for it.
