Coin Toss???

Tails never fails...

But yeah I was also surprised when they said during the broadcast that the Saints were 0-10 on the coin toss, and then 0-11 after the OT coin toss.

I doubt that they keep stats about such things, but that got me started on wondering how long the biggest losing streak on the coin toss has been or whether the Saints are the unofficial record keepers at present time?

Statistically speaking, I guess the probability of going 0-10 is the same as going 10-0 or 5-5, because it is always the same on each individual toss (50%) - although, I have to confess that I'm not entirely sure about that one since statistics and probabilities aren't really my thing.

What would be even more interesting is if they always chose the same exact side on their turns and never chose right.

We love the ball in the second half cause were usually up by then.

To recap...

...they have now lost all 11 tosses this season. The odds of that are 1 in 2,048.

... the Saintsí current coin flip futility is even more rare than a perfect season.

It's actually better this way ... getting the ball first after the halftime adjustments is probably more valuable.

You know it's bad when we make the New York Times paper. I wonder if Drew makes the Pro- Bowl if they will let him call the toss. I wouldn't. 0-11 and counting.

They said that at the beginning of the game. Then when we lost the over time, we hit the big 11.
