    If we lose this game, we're going to be 4-9 going into Carolina.

    There are some alleged fans that are hoping for that outcome.
    Gotta get that top draft pick.

    I don't think it's anyone's desired outcome, just the best outcome among the probable possibilities.

    I still can not find the reality that you live in. Is it on Kolob?
    Can you not grasp that among the probable possibilities, the best outcome
    would be the Chargers winning the game against the Bucs and continuing
    to win and getting into some kind of groove...making the playoffs and dare I say
    the AFC Championship game or the S.B.?
    How can that not be the best outcome?
    Oh wait, I almost forgot...you live in negative world. Up is down, left is right.
    I get it, my bad.

    You think this team can get to the AFCCG? Really? I mean, I can kind of almost get on board with believing that we could suck our way into the playoffs, but you seriously think that a probable possibility is getting to the playoffs and winning multiple games there? I think you need to reexamine your understanding of the word "probable".

    1prob·a·ble

    adjective \ˈprä-bə-bəl, ˈprä(b)-bəl\

    : supported by evidence strong enough to establish presumption but not proof <a probable hypothesis>

    Yes, this team can. I've seen it done with worse teams in the past.
    I never said we would or could suck our way into the playoffs.
    We could "probably" get into the playoffs at 9-7 (see Giants) or "probably" 10-6.
    I never said that this team doesn't have the "probability" of improving this season.
    There is no definite outcome to what I said...that's why it's "probable" and not "positively".
    Where is the proof that it is "probable"? Look at the history of the NFL. All it takes
    sometimes is 8-8 and your in the playoffs (see Seahawks).
    Probable. What's your definition? But please, enlighten us all with your positive outlook
    and your grasp of the English language.

    The teams in the Playoffs which win are typically good teams, even if they aren't always the teams with the best records. This isn't a good team, and so far this team has lost to every team it has played that was anything better than "average".

    It's not that my definition would be any different, but your view of the evidence seems somewhat "homerish" to me.

    No one expected New york to go to the Super Bowl when Eli got his first ring.

    If you think you know the future play the lotory. If not the why not sit back and attempt to enjoy the ride?
