Retrospective on SB Nation Predictions - Win/Loss Totals for AFC East

Way back in September, our valiant conductor, Brian Galliford, assembled the win/loss predictions made by each of the SB Nation AFC East blogs for their team. For those of you too lazy to follow the link, here are the predictions:

  1. Pats Pulpit: 12 - 4
  2. Gang Green: 11 - 5
  3. The Phinsider: 8 - 8 or 9 - 7*
  4. Buffalo Rumblings: 6 - 10

Here are the actual results:

  1. Patriots: 13 - 3
  2. Jets: 8 - 8
  3. Dolphins: 6 - 10
  4. Bills: 6 - 10

That means, in order from most accurate to least accurate, the blogs are ranked as follows:

  1. Buffalo Rumblings - 0 wins/losses -- Rating: Omniscient
  2. Pats Pulpit - 1 win -- Rating: Humbly Reasonable
  3. The Phinsider - 2.5 losses (on average) -- Rating: Delusional
  4. Gang Green - 3 losses -- Rating: Certifiably Insane

Omniscient may seem like high praise for Mr. Galliford for predicting the Bills win total correctly when it was essentially what Vegas put forward**, but he is not one to pump his own tires so we must do it for him.

*The Phinsider put forward two predictions so it could be wrong twice instead of just once. Recall that the Dolphins reached the Phinsider's second prediction of 7 losses after just 7 games and then laugh. If the Bills can't win we can at least indulge in schadenfreude. Speaking of which, thank you Mark Sanchez.

**Here is what Vegas offered:

  • Patriots O/U: 11.5 Wins
  • Jets O/U: 9 Wins
  • Dolphins O/U: 7.5 Wins
  • Bills O/U: 5.5 Wins
