Seriously, though, does Alabama have a more talented offense than the Bills?

Seriously, though, does Alabama have a more talented offense than the Bills?

The fun thing about a lot of sports debates is that we never have to worry about being proven wrong. We can compare teams or players from one era to another, for instance, and scream at the top of our lungs about who is/was better, and we can come away satisfied that therea€™s at least a chance wea€™re right.

We can also compare teams from different levels of a given sport, confident in the same thing. A few years ago, when theA Jacksonville JaguarsA were the dregs of the National Football League, the Internet had some fun debating a fanciful Jags vs. Alabama matchup. The worse the Jaguars got, the more reasonable the wrong side of the argument became.

And leta€™s be clear: if you thought the Crimson Tide would have a chance at anything more than a miracle upset,A you were on the wrong side of the argument.

Alabama loses and it is not really close. Each of the four winless NFL teams would be more than 90% likely to win and, on average, defeat Alabama by more than three touchdowns.

For context, the most likely straight-up victory of the NFL season thus far came in the Jacksonville @ Seattle game, where theA SeahawksA were 95.0% likely to win over the Jaguars. Jacksonville @ Denver will likely top that number in two weeks. So Alabama, or any college team, against even the worst NFL teams is like watching the Jaguars play the Seahawks orA Broncos.

The worst NFL team is still made up of former All-AmericanA and all-conference college football players who have benefited from X years of pro weight training and pro coaching. This is a world in which 1-in-100 upsets happen one in 100 times, so anythinga€™s possible on a given Saturday (or would we play this game on a Sunday?), but the pro team wins almost every time, usually by a significant margin.
