Quote: The good news for 49ers fans? Because of their willingness to think outside the box, Football Outsiders is sometimes spectacularly wrong. A year ago, for example, they pegged the St. Louis Rams as the heavyweights in the NFC, which was like concluding that the Washington Generals were statistically due to beat the Harlem Globetrotters. The Rams went 1-15. “That one kind of makes me cringe,’’ Barnwell said.
LMAO. I don't think these guys even take themselves seriously.
To be fair, we are absolutely NOT a lock to win the NFC West. It will take a lot of hard work to get it done. We have the potential though, and the talent.
Someone said "that's why they play the games". That statement cuts both ways.
Talk about STUPIDITY! Even if people absolutely hate the Niners, what kind of morons doesn't notice that the majority of sports writers believe the Niners will WIN the division. Their flawed logic = FAIL...miserably!
Edit: And ARZ will have 9+ wins? LOL! Not with Leinart as their QB.

Football Outsiders is very statistically based and is interesting to read. They are often wrong but are not afraid to go out on a limb. They also predict this year that Dallas and New Orleans will do worse than expected and that KC will be a lot better. Their ratings for fantasy football are worth looking at.
