First of all, that wasn't speculating on AFKAR7'S post.
I said:It is a fact, backed up by math. If the Ravens win one or two games they will be in the playoffs again. If they lose all four games like you suggested, they still have a chance to back in the playoffs, depending on what other teams do....barring a complete collapse, the Ravens should reach the playoffs.
With that said, you have to understand that my posts during and after the games are usually not as rational as other times; I am usually more emotional too. In fact, I even made remarks to another poster last night that I regret now. I just get caught up in the moment.
You are accurate that I'd rather not speculate on such a negative scenario that you proposed. It could indeed happen, and has happened to several teams in history. But, the odds favor the Ravens reaching the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year. And if they do make the postseason, there is no team that they cannot beat if they bring their A game - same can be said of every team in the playoffs. It's a new season after the first 16 are played.
But regardless...I'm not interested in debating over semantics. The Ravens showed some of their true colors last night, and it's going to impact the rest of the season, one way, or another. THAT'S the bottom line. (In my "speculative opinion, of course.)
