What Parity?

Reader Tom Lindmark asked:

Now graph the Won/Lost record so far this season. It kind of looks like money can't buy you not only love but wins in the NFL.
I responded that the season was too young (though the Buc and Chiefs both have two wins in this young season, while the Cowboys and Vikings have none). What I did put together was 2010 payroll vs. 2009 win total, which presents a slightly different perspective... perhaps those teams that won in 2009 were more likely to spend in 2010.
