NFC teams as of today......

team, projected record, playoff odds %

Packers, 14-2, 99.8%

49'ers, 13-3, 99.6%

Saints, 11-5, 89.6%

Cowboys, 9-7, 63.3%

Bears, 10-6, 82.8%

Lions, 10-6, 66.0%

And rated as next out were.....

Giants, 9-7, 56.2%

Falcons, 9-7, 32.9%

So they changed all of one team currently slotted in the 6 spots. That's as gutless as the power rankings which basically line up with their current record. ESPN does zero research. I thought they hired all of these interns every year. What do they do exactly?

And remember, this isn't about where teams are or were, it's about where they'll be. The algorithms factor in everything from weather to injuries to overall trends. Of course, all of this is still highly volatile, due to the fact we're just now halfway through the season; still, the model can get us close. Check back each week as the numbers continue to paint a clearer bracket portrait.

Whew, algorithm that sounds like pure science. An algorithm can also be 1+1. It's funny a lot of financial software salesman throw that word around trying to impress people.

Speaking of highly volatile, do any of these algorithms figure in the near certainty of a spectacular Detroit implosion down the stretch.

Funny how much dumber it makes you sound when you try to one up somebody on something and then present complete false information.

1+1 is an equation, not an algorithm. Maybe you thought the word was arithmetic? An algorithm is a set of rules used to define a sequence of operations. Basically, they take empirical statistics on teams that were in that same situation and how their seasons came to fruition and then take all those situations and extract some sore of recurring set of rules, aka algorithm, and then plug in the new current data to the accepted algorithm.

Also, algorithms are used in computer science and mathematic which both fall under science, so yes it is "pure science".

I don't see the Lions making it at all and I dont see the Cowboys winning their division at 9 - 7. Who the helll created this? My two old son?!?!

Junior, what you doing on a computer surfin' the web, boy!!!!! Get off that computer and finish your vegetables. . . .

Yea, so in other words, a phucking algebraic equation/expression, which is exactly what 1+1 is when applied to everyday life.

Sorry I stripped it down for you Taintheads. In the sequence if you find 1 baghead in a post and then you find another baghead in the same post agreeing with him then the result would be the start of a circle jerk. An algorithm can be as simple or as complicated as someone wishes to make it. It doesn't have to consider the correlation to reality especially when it relates to an event that obviously has not occurred yet. Otherwise why doesn't it predict within a small degree of error every year? In other words...it's BS.

Ray, why do you whine when TATF stuff is posted in RC, yet you hypocritically post RC stuff in TATF? Just wonderin'...rolleyes.gif

Somebody start a Brett Farve rumor so ESPN can get back to their pound it 24/7 for three months news reporting of nothing. They will be talking about Penn State 2 years from now, ESPN blows, they get on one thing and go, and go, and go........... Lions are folding, Falcons will go 9-7 and win tie breaker with Lions to get in. Here are playoff teams- Packers, 49ers, Giants, Bears, Saints, Falcons. Cowboys still have two games with Giants, one with Philly, that is three losses and I would not be suprised if Arizona beat them in 2 weeks. And Detroit still has 2 games against GB, 1 against the Saints, 1 against SD, and 1 against Oakland. Detroit finishes 9-7 at best.
