Here's a little game I came up with. Take all the players on the 53-man roster. For each player, take his jersey number and divide it by the numerological value of his name. For example, Hines Ward would be 96 divided by (H=8 + I=9 + N=14 + E=5 + S=19 + W=23 + A=1 + D=4). For Hines, that comes to 86/101, or 0.8514851485148514... .
Now, sort all the player values from highest to lowest, and multiply the highest by the lowest, the second highest by the second lowest, etc. There will be one odd, unmatched player at the median; square that player's value. Let's say one such pairing might be Sepulveda-Kirschke, with a value of 1.0476539201.
Now, re-sort all the two-player pairings (and the odd man squared) and re-sort from high value to low. You will have 27 such pairings. Again, multiply highest by lowest, second highest by second lowest, and square the odd leftover. You will have "four-man teams" with some odd squares thrown in, with 14 such values.
As you keep going, you will find that pairing off the 14 teams will have no odd man out, and can be reduced to 7 teams; this can be reduced to 4 teams (with an odd man); this can be reduced to 2 teams, then, which brings us to the final part of the game.
When you have paired up all the 53-man roster into two numerologically-and-jersey-number balanced squads, see which team has the greater numerological value. Sort each team into starters at each actual football position. Then, create a narrative explaining why the numerologically superior team should be better as a football team than the numerologically inferior team.
OK. It's a game. I didn't say it was a fun game, or a particularly interesting game, but it is a game, and one that will keep idle hands busy for a while...
I really wish I had the time to write up a spreadsheet to do all of that.
