New Orleans Saints 25 @ San Francisco 49ers 22: Prediction Results and Voting

Everyone's predictions from last week have finally been tallied, analyzed and formatted accordingly. They can be found in their entirety following the jump.  

I am happy to report that on the whole, these predictions from the 49ers game are significantly better than the week prior. In fact, you would have needed to get all three of your guesses correct this time around to even get your name on the ballot. As you can see, we have four people do just that.  

Just a couple of reminder notes for future reference. Don't forget to be as accurate as possible with your predictions. If you say that Drew Brees will pass for 250 yards, that means you think that Drew will pass for EXACTLY 250 yards - not 249 or 251 - even though you really probably mean that he will pass for AT LEAST 250 yards. I try with the best of my ability to never attempt to determine intent. Adding qualifiers and/or detailed instructions like the following are also very helpful:

Two of our RB’s (including FB’s)

Three different Saints receivers record touchdowns. (Note: This means "catch and score" not "has WR as their listed position.")

Hartley goes 100% on the night (both FG and conversion)

And don't forget that your prediction has to be something that can be easily measured or quantifiable. Predicting that a player will have a "break out game" is completely subjective.

Anyway, look over the results then go ahead and cast your vote for the best predictor. The poll will be open until Saturday morning at 6am.
