Is there an NFL football thread?
« on: January 24, 2011, 11:36:29 PM »
Because I watched the Packers/Bears game and was all  :lol:

Nice to see the Packers go to the SuperBowl, FWIW.

The Welder pointed out that if Green Bay wins the Super Bowl, Aaron Rodgers will have as many Super Bowl rings as Brett Favre.  I was like, Favre only has one?  Why is everyone so in love with him?

John Madden's been in love with him way longer than he's been showing off his lil Packer Jet Viking.

Eh, there's a lot of things that have to happen to win a Super Bowl; lots of great teams still get skunked and some less than great teams manage to win it all via essentially random factors.

We simulated the Super Bowl in good ol' Tecmo Super Bowl. It took a little less time than the actual game, but it's as accurate a measurement tool as we had available.

(No spoilers, but the final was 28-17)

What, no spoilers!?!? Darn ;)

I heard on NPR that someone did a Madden simulation, too, similar final score. It'd be nice to check back up on all of these afterwards, over time, and get a notion of the trends in forecast skill.

I bet the Tecmo's better than the Madden. :D

Cause you're so beautiful
Like a tree
Or a high-class prostitute
You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job

Breaking Madden

Hilarious. I would totally do this sort of thing if I had the game.
