Indeed. Sloppy spreadsheet error. I might not be extending a permanent job offer to the intern.

Thanks Numbers!

Also, have your intern check that "lowest %" designation for this year....not quite the lowest.

I'd be curious to see who had the highest and lowest correlation with my original picks, and where they finished in the standings.

And while I'd like to give partial credit for my win to the historically poor performance of the consensus this year, it looks like 2012 still holds that honor for both wins and percentage.

I'll see if I can get the intern to run that report.

It would be pretty awesome if you were most highly correlated with glassjaws.

glassjaws ended up being pretty low on the list.

Chargers & Rams (along with Panthers, Lions, & Bengals) stunk up the joint compared to their expectations.

Code:
Bengals     2 14     | -4
Bears       8  8     | -4
Panthers    5 11     | -4
No hate for the Bears who underperformed exactly as much as the Panthers & Bengals?
