Football Outsiders use calculators to analyze football. It makes for an interesting read, but in the end their guess is as good as anyone else's. There are too many hidden variables in football that cannot be accurately quantified by numbers or formulas. How did their prediction for the 2011 49ers turn out? LOL..
Ehhh. They're forecasting obviously, but they've shown over time that they're guesses are better than everyone else's. They're certainly better than a bunch of 9ers fans who think the probability model is them being "haters" (LOL).
They've also come out and said they think it looks low to them too, but it's what they came out with.. Not to much to see here, IMO.
