In Topic: Guess the Panthers' Schedule Contest

I just took the 188 trillion and divided by 9 (number of possible weeks that the bye could be on), then took that result and divided by 2 three separate times (due to the 50% chance of getting the home/away status of the three separate divisional opponents) which came out to...

 

2.61 trillion

some worth a poo at math calculate the odds of guessing each one at random (with two games for each NFCS foe) and getting it right

By Tuesday evening, I received a response and, as expected, winning this contest is essentially impossible. According to the work of Alok D. Pattani of our analytics team, the odds of getting just the 16 opponents plus the bye week comes in right around one in 188 trillion.

 

That was with having to select the bye week and the home/away of the divisional games, but that should give you some sort of idea...

What is awesome is that the Jon Beason trade is what landed us the opportunity (7th round pick) to get Benwikere. I think a lot of people originally thought the trade was a waste since we only got a 7th rounder out of it, but that 7th rounder proved to be a very valuable tool for us.

True, lakes are nasty.

But an island makes sense. Throw the ball out to your WR on my tiny island and see if he catches it. Anyone can throw a ball into a lake. Superior is like ... big and stuff.


Yeah but lakes are found on islands, too. Just think about Hawaii, Cuba, Puerto Rico, etc. Pretty easy to throw it on those islands.
