WhatIfSports: Packers Win Super Bowl XLV

56 5

Your Super Bowl XLV MVP

We’ve talked about the importance, or lack there of, of preseason predictions.

However, WhatIfSports.com is a little bit different and little bit more intriguing. The site uses a computer to generate the results for each NFL game of the season based on player stats. Of course, they’re using 2009 season stats for their projections at this point, but if you’re a Packers fan, the results are still interesting.

The computer simulation predicts the Packers will finish 13-3, win the NFC North and the Super Bowl, defeating the San Diego Chargers.

WhatIfSports.com has also named Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers as Super Bowl MVP, after he throws for 300 yards and two touchdowns.

On their road to the title, the Packers will defeat the Carolina Panthers in the divisional round and the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Championship game.

So there you have it. No need to even play the season.

    Well since this is just a prediction it really doesnt mean anything but lets all hope it does. i just hope the players dont get all this champion stuff in their head because championships arent won on paper. they cant think they are the champs just yet and be careless during the season. if they take on game at a time and keep their focus, im sure they will be the champs! GO PACKERS!

    that’s funny, cause back in early June, whatifsports.com did the same analysis and picked the Vikings to beat the Chargers – with an asterisk that those results only count IF Favre plays: http://min.scout.com/2/974472.html

    i take it then this is the result if Favre doesn’t play this season???

    Quote from linked article:
    All of our predictions and projections you’ve enjoyed (some more than others) over the last two weeks are part of a fluid process. We’ve learned a lot about our NFL simulation engine and the data it is generating. It’s our goal throughout training camp and on in to the pre-season to make the necessary calibrations that reflect the best “what-if” scenario for the 2010 NFL season.”

    So, ultimately, neither one might be valid (as valid as a 10,001 repetition computer simulation can be, I guess) in 2 months time.

    thanks, kyle. not that a put much stock into their prediction in the first place…but they did predict the NFL Champ, the NBA Champ, the BCS Champ and one other last year. just thought it was interesting.
