I think that on average, playoff teams have better preseason records than the bottom teams. That is not to say that a 0-4 preseason is a lock for a bad season, but I bet on average 0-4 teams go one to have sub .500 regular season records. Any stat gurus wish to verify? It is a guess of mine.
I did a quick search of the preseason records for last year's playoff teams
Green Bay 2-3
Preseason records for the bottom 10.
Last year the combined preseason record of playoff teams was 31-19
Last year the combined preseason record of the bottom ten was 15-25
