Parker S.

Thanks for taking this on, Kaiser. You at least made it easier to analyze. It's still a lot of teams. I think one more revision to this might be to split this out into the three groups you mentioned - top quartile, bottom quartile and middle. I'd do it based on the ending or current date though.

The storylines become:
- Top 25% This is how the top teams got here (they've always been good, they were darkhorses [Tampa Bay] or they are rags to riches [Oakland])
- Bottom 25% Here's the bottom of the barrel (too bad for Detroit and Buffalo, Carolina is getting even more awful, and Dallas has fallen on hard times . . . so far)
- Mid 50% Steady-Eddies (these teams just don't have what it takes to make the next step up but they aren't dreadful either)

Anyway - great work. It's a little messy, but you did a great job with it.

Oh yea . . . Go Falcons!
