One of the things we've done since the beginning of this blog -- quite a while now -- is to make a season prediction as to overall record. Lots of places give game-by-game predictions for the season and that's certainly a worthwhile pursuit. We do game-by-game predictions, too, but do them week by week as the season goes along; just too many factors that can affect things.
What we do at the outset though is use a game itself as a model. In short, we break up the season into quarters and give predictions for each quarter of the season. OK, yes, because of the bye week there are really 17 weeks to the season not 16...so how can we do quarters??? Hey, it makes sense to us and since this is our blog, well, that's all that matters. So here go...
First Quarter of Season - Weeks 1-4 (Sept. 10-28)
Second Quarter of Season - Weeks 5-8 (Oct. 6-29)
Third Quarter of Season - Weeks 9-12 (Nov. 6-26)
Fourth Quarter of Season - Weeks 13-17 (Dec. 3-31)
