My goal with this NFL rating was to prove through objective statistics that the 1985Chicago Bears were the greatest NFL team of all-time. (they were 2nd)
I include 3 levels of stats into ONE main stat
Yards = rushing, passing, sacks, t/o's, ST's, penalties
Points = Scoring margin +/-
Winning% = Winning percentage. Previous 2 stats are converted into .00
YARDS < Points < winning %
1 2 4
Points count twice as much as yards, while winning % counts twice as much as points. I then factor for schedule. Everything is weighted off of the 1972Dolphins who have a rating of 1.000
During the regular season I use momentum in my rankings to make them as accurate as the stats in my projections.
