I blogged earlier this year on ESPN’s “experts” spinelessly predicting that every NFL team would do about as well as they did last year. FireJoeMorgan points me to this article, which not only predicts that the league will, in sum, go 262-250 over the second half of he season, but spinelessly predicts that every team will play exactly the same as they have in the first half. Twenty-nine teams are predicted to be within 1-game of their first half performance. Detroit, Jacksonville and San Fran are predicted to be within 2 wins. No team is predicted to collapse or surge.
Fucking hell, what is the sports media’s job? Do they have any insight whatsoever?
