Luckiest Teams in the NFL (updated)

40 posts in this topic

I stumbled upon a HSOforum that has various statistics and calculations and one of the things they figure is "Luckiest Team"

Below are the results of their calculations which show the Jets are the luckiest team having won three more games than they probably should have. The unluckiest team is the Packers who should have almost three more wins. (No, this wasn't from a Packer HSOforum either).

GWP is the probability a team would beat the league average team at a neutral site.

WOW,

Interesting stat Limit, let's see, Which team is WAY up the chart at #6 and which team is WAY down the list at #22???

Thought provoking, don't you think? So much for all the Queen lovers gnashing of teeth, wailing and whining!

Have a little Cheese with that Whine, Queen fans!

Coming from a guy whose team probably should have jumped all the way up to #1 just on last Monday's win alone that doesn't sting so much.

Come On Fishy,

That game turned out just like Lovie had it scripted! All the way down to Urlacher bouncing the quarter off his melon to turn it to heads! LOL Have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year man.

i'd have to say the bears are the luckiest team...not even counting the monday game...they always pull the rabbit out and get the win.

my vote for unluckiest would be the lions...alot of the times they are in the game in the end of the 4th quarter then totally lose it...you'd think atleast 1 of them games something lucky would happen for them lol.

Windy,

Good thing Urlacher has that oversized melon. I am going with Houston and the #15 lucky ranking this weekend.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

I wonder why LMIT didn't pull out that stat line last year when the Packers were the #1 lucky team.

There is luck in winning the lottery, the coin flip to start overtime and then there is the luck it takes to win games. Give the Bears credit, they found a way to take advantage of the luck that came their way. As did the Falcons last weekend or the Vikes earlier against NO. It takes talent and a ability to take advantage of luck in an NFL contest. Otherwise the Lions would have beat the Vikes this year when they had a +4 turnover margin. Is it coincidence that one of the best game saving QB's ever (Favre) has his team atop the lucky rankings for the second year in a row although he switched teams. The "lucky" team he left went from 13-3 to at best 6-10. The "lucky" team he is now leading was 4-12 and now has them in reach of the playoffs and/or division title. Good teams find a way to win. The Bears have done that, the Vikes hopefully will prove that out one more time and the Pack really suck.

It is looking that way, Fish. The Queens are hands down the luckiest of the 4 teams in the NFC Central fight, and my beloved Bears are the most unlucky. According to LimitOut's chart so it looks like the Queens will roll and da Bears will be put into hibernation. Might as well not even watch the games! LOL

i wish the vikes really were the luckiest of the 4 teams...it seems to me everything that can go wrong always does.

the bears weren't lucky with that blocked field goal it was because the vikes are just that unlucky. LOL

Shouldn't you have posted that property in the "Free things" along with the 20' box fan???

That is a great stat sheet. Detroit is # 28 and haven't won a game. How the heck can there be any luck there.

Stupid stats.

No agenda, just posted the calculations from THIS year thus far.

And, I don't know why it turned into a Packers issue when I'm not even a Packers fan. Yet, I don't find it surprising....

Nice try though. smirk

fishy, please go back and re-read the first post and maybe you'll see that there was no motive behind it.

I was not commenting on that post alone. Your body of work leads many people to certain assumptions.

Not sure how that first post can lead to any "assumptions".....I just posted some statistics for people to chew on and then in some bizarre fashion it appears paranoia set in that the beloved Vikings were getting picked on. wow.

BTW, what does "our team" mean? This is a football forum, not a Minnesota Vikings forum in case you haven't noticed.

Good luck today!

Limit,

Don't let them rattle you, man. They are just really nervous. There is this big Green machine that is going to be rumbling into Twinkie town this week and all the Queens fans are watching out overhead as the Eagle soars in for the kill!

That was a great stat you found, no matter what any nervous Queens fans say! Eagles by 21 points!

The Pack need something to blame the season on.

Can't be the team.

Or the lack of Favre.

LMIT,

Again, my statement had to your history and pattern of posts that led to the assumptions. Your idividual post may have been benign but its kind of like the boy who cried wolf. You actually posted something that didn't include a shot at the Vikes, their fans, their quarterback or backhanded, sarcasm laden compliment, and we didn't believe you.

In saying "ours" as a posessive I was referring to the Vikes that you so lovably pick on.

Obviously written by a Favre hater.

And, so what. Sometimes "luck" is better than "skill".

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
