    Hi there,

    I just found your website and love it!

    I've been doing analysis similar to this for NFL statistics (although not quite as advanced), and I've come to similar conclusions to you.

    Currently, my model has Baltimore ranked #1, New Orleans #2, and Dallas #3. St. Louis is #32. 4-0 Detroit I've got at #7 (you have at #8), so results are very similar.

    I've had the same thought process. Determine which stats are repeatable, which ones aren't and are "luck," then make an adjustment for who you've played.

    Last year I did the same thing and had Green Bay ranked #1 throughout the last month of the season, and I was telling people how good they were and that Atlanta was overrated.

    Very good website! Keep up the good work!
