2013 Superbowl: 49ers vs. Ravens

Nate Silver, who accurately called the outcome of the 2012 presidential election based on his statistical analysis of polling, says the 49ers have the best chance because the have both the better defensive and offensive records.

The teams with the best defense records have won past Superbowls more than two-thirds of the time.

The teams with the best offense records have won past Superbowls only half the time.

Quote:
The reasons that exceptional defenses fare so much better in the Super Bowl are still somewhat murky, but this factor bodes well for this year’s 49ers, whose defense belongs in the elite group, according to S.R.S. (it ranks 17th among Super Bowl teams). The Ravens, despite all the hype surrounding Ray Lewis, allowed a rather pedestrian 21.5 points per game this year. The 49ers also have the better offense, according to S.R.S., so there isn’t much to recommend the Ravens . . . unless you look at the more sophisticated rankings published by Football Outsiders. Their system, known as Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (D.V.O.A.), accounts for a team’s success or failure on every play it ran during the year and not just on final scores.

Those rankings find that while the 49ers had the better offense and defense, the Ravens had the best special teams in the league this year. If they do pull off the upset, on the heels of Steve Weatherford’s game-changing performance for the Giants in last year’s Super Bowl, perhaps it will be time for a new cliché: punters win championships. But don’t count on that.

It's not just the Super Bowl thread that has been posted multiple times.

At least three different posts have been made about KTM buying Husqvarna,
this week.



Lots of people are lazy and have low intelligence, and some of them are
members of ADVrider. It's just the way it is. Most web forums are similar.
It's all part of the real world becoming more like the movie "Idiocracy" with
each passing day.


The Super Bowl is just another form of "bread and circuses", designed to keep
the masses in line by distracting them from things that really matter, for example
secret bipartisan US Government agreements which will soon allow the millions of
people who have no legal right to live in the United States to suddenly become citizens
regardless of how it impacts the average person who was born in the US
( hint : your taxes aren't going down ).


Enjoy the football game, and remember, the US government doesn't want you
to think too much because if you did you might notice things you didn't like

I hope the 49ers win because I want to see Ray Lewis cry like a baby because doG didn't help him win.

Yeah, but I thought those guys are supposed to be restricted to CSM.
