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

LOL...Yep, never any agenda with your posts. Your concern over our being well informed about our team thoughout the season has always come through so well. Thank you for keeping us informed on our team. Keep those uplifting, well meaning posts coming.

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".

    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
    • The curved blades may very well be the "Jet" part that made it different from their other hand augers?
    • It's always nice to have fresh homemade pickles in the winter. Jalapeno peppers will be next.
    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like what I had heard from the guy I met at upper red who was from the area. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
