Talking past. Possible outcome vs smart prediction.

July 17, 2019 05:39AM
Have Superbowl losers gone 8-8 or worse? Yes.
Could this happen to the Rams in 2019? Yes.

Is 8-8 the most likely outcome for the 2019 Rams? No.
Is it pretty close to the top of the outcome bell curve? No.
Would a smart man go to Vegas and put a bunch of money on the Rams going 8-8? No.

Rampage2K is saying that if your goal is to make a prediction that is most likely to be right, it's not smart to predict 8-8.

Responders are saying "R2K, 8-8 is within the realm of possibility!", as if he was saying it just couldn't happen.

Those are two different things. Happens all the time on this board.
