Congrats to Giants; Quant Facts

Congratulations to both the New England Patriots and the New York Giants for a great season. Big games, and indeed, championships -- often come down to just a few key plays. Athletes and teams that focus on:
  • fundamentals,
  • minimizing errors (while still performing at a high level)
and also have:
  • confidence, which is often related to
  • experience, and
  • leadership --
often "win the big game."

Eli Manning's Giants came away with Super Bowl XLVI because they executed just a touch better than the Patriots. This drops our "quant fact" predictions to 26-17 in published predictions for our book's blog.
