The Saints Are The 4th Best Team In The NFL According To This New, Ridiculous Ranking System That I Now Swear By
BES Report- After nine weeks, the BES is still holding steady at 64.4 percent accuracy in predicting straight-up game outcomes. The record now stands at 65-36 (.644) after a 10-4 showing in Week 9.
This week’s rankings unveil the Bengals (8-0) as the new No. 1 team in the BES. This ends a five-week reign by the Patriots (8-0) who previously held the position since Week 4. The Bengals were already closing in on the Patriots in our Week 8 rankings. A dominant divisional victory over the Browns (2-7) in Week 9 gave them the momentum needed to finally seize the top spot.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees leads the No.2-ranked BES Offense.
Also in the Top-5 we find a major head-scratcher with the Saints (4-5) at No. 4. The BES seems influenced by the Saints recent body of work where they’ve compiled a 4-2 record in their last six games. That stretch includes with pivotal wins over the Falcons (6-3), Giants (5-4) and Colts (4-5), all of whom ranked higher than the Saints at the time.
BES! BES! I'm all in baby. I don't even know what it stands for, but I am sold. I have always said that the worst thing that happened to football was a playoff system. Can't believe college football determines a National Champion by their performance on the field. They need to go back to plugging a bunch of crap into a computer and seeing what pops out. That's the real way to determine who's the best. Did you hear all the controversy when the committee released the first set of playoff rankings? People were up in arms! That would never happen with something like the BES. Could you imagine what a tragedy it would be if the undefeated 2004 Auburn Tigers had made it into the National Championship game off their resume alone? It would have been the single biggest injustice in sports history. That's why the NFL needs to adopt the BES as soon as possible, and I am not just saying that because the Saints, at 4-5, are somehow the best non-undefeated team in the league.
Do I know how these rankings were determined? Of course not, but you can bet your first born I am not going to go back and check. Why would I risk finding some fatal flaw in the formula? The Saints are the 4th best team in the NFL, and thus, at the very least, in the virtual NFC championship game. I don't even know how someone could argue that. It's math guys. You think you're smarter than a computer? Men lie, women lie, numbers don't. Check the scoreboard bitches, 3.03. Bet the Broncos didn't think they would get leapfrogged by a team with 4 more losses, did they? Oh well, that's just the unpredictable nature of sports at work I guess. The BES is 64.4% accurate. Did you know Tom Brady's completion percentage this year is only 68%, Saying you don't trust the BES is pretty much like saying you don't trust Tom Brady and who would EVER say that?
