Too much to wish for I think. Not sure limping into the playoffs is going to do us any good. Miracles do happen I just don't see this team as being consistent and really able to make a run for it this year. Just the way I feel and I am not going to get my hopes up.

Although I would feel better with the team that played yesterday going into the playoffs, not going to happen. 8-8 will have to do for this year.

Re: slim chances but still chances

Im pretty sure the scenario now is we have to win out and NYG, DAL, CHI, and MIN have to lose out. STL must drop one of next two.

If Im right, as long as a shot it is, its not entirely impossible given the remaining schedules of each team ahead of us.

But then of course, I took the Saints in the Sunday night game and lost (to the Falcons), and ending up losing the Monday night game as well.
Big shame that.
Is that what they mean by "stays in Vegas"?
You could have single game hedged the late Sunday game. All that does is gets your original and Sunday night stake back and feels like "a penny discout on a Rolls-Royce purchase"

Over here in the UK, I did a 14 game straight parlay, all games going off at the same time. I also did 2 x 7, splitting the 14. The bookie laughed very much when only 1 game went down and all I could collect was on 1 x 7. Sheesh!
