All they are is dust in the wind...

As we get closer to the end of the regular season, fewer and fewer teams will be playoff-eligible. Their playoff candles will be snuffed, leaving the teams virtually nothing to play for...save pride, effing their rivals, and draft position. As of today, 13 teams have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. I'll try to keep track of each team's fate over the next two weeks, as the contenders fall.

You're my boy, Blue...
