Two things:

1) you'll get better uptake of your graph if it's visible as a simple
     image, rather than requiring a PDF download.  :/
2) labelling the Y axis would help; I'm not sure what the scale
of 1-8 represents, unless it's perhaps the number of slices of
pizza consumed per staff member per address allocation request?

But I do agree with what seems to be your driving message, which
is that Geoff could potentially be considered "optimistic".  ^_^;
