Let’s make this short and sweet. I became a writer in part because math was never my thing. The folks at sportsclubstats.com do the math, however, and their math says that — assuming the Cardinals finish the season winning their last three games to get to 9-7 — that they have a 36.1 percent chance to make the playoffs. They also say the most likely matchup if that happened would be a wild-card game in New Orleans.
Of course, that — again — means the Cards have to finish the regular season on a six-game winning streak just to have a slightly better than one-in-three opportunity. And it doesn’t matter, since I said I wasn’t talking such possibilities until the Cards got to .500 anyway. Right?
