    stumbled on this reading another sports thing

    I haven't read how this computer simulation puts things in order

    but shows Texans win total
    5 wins 17.6 percent probability
    6 wins 21.7 percent probability
    7 wins 19.5 percent probability

    now playoff probability 6.0% for the Texans (hey Astros are .1% probability)

    so they flip a coin? (about as good as what forcasters are in predicting the weather)

    They might flip a coin. I just used a 1991 US Nickle and flipped it 16 times letting it hit the table. According to my coin, we go 7-9.

    Now on the off chance my coin is correct, after the season is over you may purchase my amazing fortune telling 5 cent piece on ebay with a starting bid of $10k dollars.

    Ravens: We Lose
    Titans: We Lose
    Jags: We Lose
    Colts: We Win
    Dolphins: We Win
    Lions: We Win
    Bye:

    Colts: We Lose
    Browns: We Win
    Jags: We Lose
    Packers: We Lose
    Titans: We Lose
    Raiders: We Win

    Right, just 2 teams, Miami and Atlanta, have a worse playoff probability than we do.

    Luckily the games are played on a football field and not on a computer.

    The Texans are going into Pittsburgh and "steeling" one. That'll get some people waking up to what's going on down here.

    How's that for a forecast?
