Chances of Making Playoffs

Postby DarthMonk » Tue Dec 04, 2012 1:39 pm

Latest analysis gives us a 35.2% chance up from 14.2% after the win over the Ginas on Monday Night.

The guys ahead of us outside the NFC East are:

CHI 95%
PAC 90.3%
SEA 60.5%

CHI or PAC will win the North so we have to pass one of them or SEA or win the East.

BUC 20.8%
COW 20.6%

are right behind us. Everyone else is a true long shot.

Our chance of being the #4 seed is 24%.

Would like to see conditional probability assuming we win out.

We could win out and miss ... as I'm sure you know. However, I'd say it is probably over 75% if we do win out.

Our best chance is to win the division ... I think.

I wish the Steelers had beaten the Ravens 3 weeks ago and lost last week. Don't like catching them coming off a loss.

Really? Okay.

Giants win out (11-5) and win East.

Seahawks win out (11-5) and get a wild card behind 49ers (11-4-1).

Bears and Pack win out except their rematch so one wins division (12-4) and the other gets the other wild card (11-5).

I like our chances if we win out. We do not control our own destiny but might after this week.

^^ fair enough - IF we do win out though I like the chances of at least one of those others not being able to make the playoffs

one of them is going to lose 2 :lol:

If the gnats lose a game and we win out we own the tie breaker with better division record since the fecals beat them, they split with us and dullass. Might make week 17 vs the pukes the biggest game of the year! Glad its at home

...and yet ANOTHER record setting performance by "RG3 the third"!!!!

BTW - Indy's chances are 82.8%. The last AFC spot is likely down to Cincy (56.5%) and Pitt (55%).

Other "interesting" facts about us:

Out of roughly 9.9 million possibilities ...

... around 3.4 million of them get us in.

... around 2.2 million of them have us getting in by finishing 3-1.

... around 0.9 million of them have us getting in by finishing 4-0. The idea here is not that it's harder to get in IF we go 4-0 but that 4-0 is simply less likely than 3-1.

Our chances fall off a cliff with 2 more losses.

We could easily be favored in every game.

I feel the same way - linchpin game.

Wonder what would have happened if refs had not given Seattle the Packer game (with butterfly effect).

We are suddenly at 66.5%.

We are 53% to be the 4 seed.

We are 3% to be the 3 seed.

We cannot get a bye.

We must beat the Cowboys to win the East.

The most likely scenario is Washington hosting Seattle.

They've knocked us out twice recently ... at their place. Payback would be very nice.

There is an outside chance we could host an NFC title game. :shock:
