That's right, the 3-9 carolina panthers who can't get lucky on anything from fumble bounces to on-field-slips to ball placement to holding calls to injuries to strength of schedule to playing terrible teams who suddenly are really really good due to an unprecedented tragic event that emotionally inspired them to overachieve, have managed to nail the 0.012% odds of being 0-13 on coin tosses.

the odds that we lose the toss against the falcons tomorrow is 1 in 2, but the odds of going 0-14 on coin tosses is 1 in 16,348 (or .006%)

couldn't one of us just win the fuging lottery or something instead?

We've actually already lost 14 in a row because of the overtime toss. Craziness.

Does the streak go into last year as well? Or did we win that toss at NO?
