Worst math I've ever seen

Cynthia Frelund, who does analytics for NFL.com, is one of the worst I've ever seen. Look at her playoff percentages video and tell me something doesn't feel off with a lot of them. There is obviously something missing from her calculations. For example, she gives us a 78% chance of making the playoffs. In comparison, a website that does better statistical evaluation fivethirtyeight.com, gives us a 78% chance......... for a first round bye. Heck, we may have had close to a 78% chance to make the playoffs before the season started. How the hell did she get hired?

Lol, I'd say the odds of that would be fairly high.

Re: Worst math I've ever seen

Five Thirty Eight has group chats every week. The last two they didn't discuss the Saints, but Neil Paine and some of the other writers have been giving us mad props for depth and have argued we are the best team in the NFC.

After weeks of hyping up Minnesota, they finally admitted last week that not only are the Vikings overrated but the entire NFC North is a crap division dominated with one team benefiting from it.

Cynthia Frelund and her simulation process has her .1 percentage points behind the most accurate "experts" on Pickwatch, a site which compiles weekly picks from all across media. She was the only person that picked the Saints over Chicago and Dallas on NFL Network.
