I read usa today said that the game simulated 100 times the rat birds won 50.8 percent of the time, i hope our black and gold don't fold. I hate the rat birds , i hate ray lewis, i can't stand reed or mason, please tell me why that they were picked to win that many times?

Key word highlighted above.

Don't fall prey to that garbage. There will be no "artificial preservatives" in Sunday's game. Only black 'n gold for our Steelers and for the Rats - black 'n blue. :tt03:

Who gives a crap what they say in a simulation. That is all they are. I can bet you dollars to doughnuts that the simulation does not take into account how beat up the Ravens are. Don't worry. The Steelers players could care less what USA Today has to say about them.

How many times did the Giants win when the Super Bowl was 'simulated' last year?

My friend, steelers fans don't fear. We create fear

Simulations mean nothing. I hope the ravens win 100 out of 100 simulations. It has zero effect on the game

I wonder what the simulated score for the Steelers/Colts game was after the '05 season? Don't worry my friend.....Our boys will be ready.

I was thinking much of the same.

I ran a similation last night on Madden. We won by 80

If they ran the simulation 100 times, why was the ravens winning percent 50.8? Did they win .8 of a game?

That's exactly what I was going to say. Glad I checked the second page.

But yeah, seriously, wth is up with that?

I'm worried about Sunday but, I wouldn't buy into that stuff it's all computer generated and on Sunday the only thing computer generated is the stat sheet after each play.

Although (and I'm new so this will get me off to a bad start) I'm picking against the Steelers.

Let me explain :chuckle:

I have picked the Steelers to win 4 times the entire season and I have picked against us 13 times..lol You do the math and you will see why I pick us to lose :tt:

Forget the simulation talk, it's crap. And it won't be simulation when the Steelers knock the Rats from the playoffs on Sunday night.

Relax, the Ravens haven't had a week off since Week 2. After 100 simulations, they're going to be exhausted on Sunday.

AFC Championship: Baltimore 13 @ Pittsburgh 16 (click for boxscore)
For the second straight week, Baltimore is our second ranked, yet has to travel to the best team in the league. In both instances, no team wins more than 55% of the simulations and we have given the home team a three point average victory - essentially the "home field advantage." These two teams have already played twice, with Pittsburgh winning by three at home and four on the road. The margin that separates these teams may even be closer than that. After carefully reviewing these teams, it is almost impossible to give either team the edge. Baltimore and Pittsburgh's regular season ranks in the league in the most relevant statistics to our simulation are (Ravens listed first): strength of schedule (4 and 3), scoring defense (3 and 1), yards-per-pass for (14 and 13), yards-per-pass allowed (2 and 1), yards-per-rush for (25 and 29), yards-per-rush allowed (5 and 2) and turnover margin (3 and 10). Out of 32 teams, the Steelers and Ravens are ranked within four in every major statistical category outside of turnover margin (and both are still positive). I don't know if we have ever seen two more evenly-matched teams. The only discernible advantages to either team are homefield (though that looks shaky with the results of the playoffs thus far) and health. With Le'Ron McClain and Terrell Suggs banged up, both of those go to Pittsburgh on Sunday. With two hard-hitting defenses in the Steelers and the Ravens (and after watching the games last weekend), it's probably even money as to whether there will be more injury timeouts or points scored. According to 10,001 simulations, the latter figure will be 29. It could be close. Pittsburgh uses its minor advantages to win 54.3% of the time and by an average score of 16-13.

Fear is the path to the Dark Side...

Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.

Well actually, if its the Ravens that are suffering I'll take the Dark Side !

HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO!
