Really? 7.2 Wins?

Machines are taking over.

http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2012/04/can-an-algorithm-write-a-better-news-story-than-a-human-reporter/

If its a news article based on statistics any more, there's a decent chance a machine wrote it. The problem is, machines lack common sense. Hence, the Niner's prediction.

Skynet is here. Where is John Connor when we need him . . .
Reminder that in 2010 when everyone predicted us to win the division FO had the 49ers with 6 wins and tied for last place in the division.

And that in 2011 they predicted us to win the division (albeit with 7.5 wins)
Sorry, I'm going to have to disagree with scientist that read the almanac. He's slightly out of his element.
Put me down with Niner GM, and I won't copy his article....just refer to it. Here's a question. How did we get so much better so quickly. F.O.)jed , got it. COY, well he is best coach in nfl or maybe top 2-3. GM is GMof yr? What does that say? We finally got our schidt together, and there is one helluva lot of talent to go along with best coach and best GM. Best coach also means he KNOWS how to use the talent. Nobody else here in 12 yrs did. So it all comes from the top down, and at the same time comes from the talent level from bottom up. Stick that up their formula and chew on that a while. Will we lose more games? yup. One will be in SEA, always tough. a couple will be ones we should had. One or two may be NYG or GB . But at end of season, our coach outcoached everybody else, and our talent outplays everyone else.

Alex? Hmmm.....well, when was the last time the 9ers drafted a situational player with the 2nd pick? I can't think of one time in 35 yrs. Yet we did. La Michael is going to be alex's gateway to a lota yds, whether 4K or not, who cares. What does matter is when WRs and #85 covered, La Michael won't be, and lucky D, they get to try to tackle him. Once they spy on him or double him, Vernon, crbtre, AJ, delanie, moss, mario, etc are open. This is going to be a win/lose situation. We win, they lose. And they can shove that 7.2 up where the sun don't shine. I bet Vegas has that # at 100:1 against.

i really hope we use james the way brees/saints used sproles

get a lot of catches and lots of YAC ( i mean didnt sproles end up getting like 16 catches against us)
Before finishing thots on this ridiculous idea of 7.2, i forgot that our COY competed against guys who had established programs, Coughlin, Bellichek, Payton, GB, Ravens, etc. Obviously the 7.2 people forgot that our COY had never even seen his team until a month before season, making him not only COY, but superman. Superhuman, anyway. The fact that Coach actually pulled that off...man, the odds against must have been 500: 1. That doesn't look like a team coming out 7.2, altho i do understand what they were trying to do. With the 9ers, that # got skewed to hell and back, considering new coach to NFL, who didn't even get to meet his team. Amazin', just fricking amazin'.
