Before you quit your job to try out for the NFL, take a look at the odds. They are truly stacked up against you. Did you know you’re more likely to become a member of MENSA than to make it to the NFL? When you consider how unlikely it is to even get into the NFL, it gives you a greater appreciation for what it takes to play in the Superbowl or become the league MVP for the year!
In fact, even if you played football in college, the odds you will become the league MVP are still 90,000:1. For the same group, the odds of scoring 1 touchdown in an NFL season are 244:1, the same odds as being dealt a straight in poker.
