But that doesn't tell the whole story. If you graph an individual teams possible projected records, you get something of a bell curve with the most likely record in the middle. But it would be a pain to have 32 different charts to have to look at, so I've come up with a way to display all for a given conference on a single chart.
It is a little overwhelming at first, but take a look at this and let me know what you think.
What this is showing is a segment for each team for each possible win total indicating the likelihood of that record. The size of the segment indicates a higher likelihood.
So for example, Atlanta in blue has a small chance of going 15-1 and a smaller chance of 10-6, the most likely record in between being 13-3. Then Chicago is in red, the 49ers in orange/yellow, etc.
I used a stack bar chart to be able to fit it all on a single chart so it is a little complex, but I think it is somewhat useful. Let me know what you think.
Oh, and the above is showing the current projected records after the Sunday night game.
