In typical fashion, my early morning browsing session led me to come across an interesting article about using Madden '09 to predict real life game results. The team at EA Sports created a "sim-Super Bowl" which predicted a score of 28-24, and a Steelers win. Pretty good for a computer, eh?
This got me thinking - could someone (anyone) use this as a tool to predict our upcoming season?
To start, here's the original article: http://www.popsci.com/entertainment-amp-gaming/article/2009-02/madden-predicts-winner
So, my challenge to all of you out in Vikingsland, is to try this out (if you can). I'd like to hear what sorts of results you come up with - and furthermore, let's try the simulation with different players in the QB position.
