2006 NFL Pythags

First off, let me note that these are the average Pythags from throughout the season. Some thoughts:

  1. That was an awful Jets team that somehow made the playoffs.
  2. The Chargers blew their best shot at a title. Also, a Colts-Chargers AFC Championship game would have felt like a Super Bowl.
  3. The Saints finished the season with a much higher Pythag than they averaged for most of the year. They’d be around .6500, if we were using their final Pythag.
  4. The Cowboys were the best team in the NFC. Whatever happened to Tony Romo?
  5. Get used to every non-Patriots team in the AFC East having a below-average Pythag.
