As if Saints Report doesn't offer enough ways to lower the productivity of the American worker, The Wall Street Journal let's you seed a playoff bracket and then watch as it predicts who will win. It doesn't always pick the team that it says has the highest probability of winning, though. On my simulation, it had the Giants beat the Saints in the NFC Championship game even though it said New Orleans had a better than 60% chance of winning.

Anyway, try it, I had a lot of fun.

I'm not going to read it, but as a regular investor/player, I'll say the Wall Street Journal has gone to hell in a handbasket.

I guess they're running out of readers.

I'm sure that simulation had Kenny Phillips still playing. Wonder what it would be without Phillips? That's a huge hit for the G men.
