Who dat?

By Hans Wuerflein

Madden knows.

Many of the pre-game predictions using EA’s Madden 10 correctly predicted that the New Orleans Saints would win Super Bowl XLIV.

None of them had the ballsy on-side kick by the Saints at the start of the second half that swung momentum fully in their direction.

It can’t really be docked for not getting that right, but I did see one simulation that had Drew Brees still passing with 20 seconds left on the clock, Saints up 14.

So basically, it’s a great statistical analysis, but the play-calling AI is apparently modeled after a monkey hitting the controller with a stick.
