Bears lost today putting them 7 - 6 on the year.

I believe if the Packers win against the Lions going to 9 - 4 and then beat the Bears going 10 - 4, they have clinched the division title. Because even if the Bears finish 10 - 6 they lose tie breaker to Packers.

The Vikings could finish 10 - 6 and I'm not sure about tie breakers on there. I just don't see it happening lol

Vikings will lose to the Packers and the Texans. Guaranteed. Already made my bet vs Vikesrule.

We won the division. da Bears stink without Urlacher. We watched them look on helplessly as AD tore them apart singlehandedly. The Vikings won't be able to do that crap against the Packers or the Texans.

I don't even care about winning the division. What I care about is our team will be healthy in the Playoffs.

Bears are now 8-5

And after the Kitties win tonight, you will have to revise that thought Z2C.

Vikings will win 2 of the final 3 games...loss to the Texans and wins against the Rams and Packers...

I don't believe Kitties are playing, and if they are, it doesn't matter because the Packers play the Lions. You smoke some weird stuff man, weird stuff.

Gawd, the Bear's OLine sucked again today. What a terrible game for them. And AP keeps going and going and going.

Of course, I am hoping the Pack wins out, but I expect 1 loss in the next 4 (including tonight). I actually like the Pack's chances today against the Lions, at least out of doors at home in something resembling December weather.

Not too worried about the Vikings either.

Winning out would be nice though - be on a good run for the playoffs, and get a better seed.

Packers defeat Bears - Packers are in (if the Packers lose out and the Bears win out, Packers win division due to 2-0 in head to head)
Packers go 2-1 but lose to the Bears, Packers are NOT in (If the Packers finish 11-5 and the Bears win out, the Bears will have 11-5 and the Packers will tie the Bears divisional record at 4-2. Packers lose out on common opponents)

So if the Packers are going to choose their own destiny, they either beat the bears or win the final two games.

Just win all three remaining and take the 2nd seed. We want some payback on the 9ers.

Do we let Tramon take on Marshall next week like he did Megatron tonight. Very key to our win agains the kitties.

I like how we are underrated by the national guys, although Saint Tony Dungy said we were the best team in the NFC this season.

This time, Jarret Bush doesn't start at CB.

I'd almost rather be "out" in this scenario and go in as the 5 or 6 seed. Dome/warm games in the playoffs please. I would not be against winning the division, Lambeau just worries me in the playoffs lately.

The important thing is that the Packers destiny if in their own hands.

Win out and go for #1 seed. Just need a little help from Gmen, Lions and Bucs beating Atl, while SF loses to Pats and were gold.

If we stay at #3, looking like a home game against Da' Bears, skins, boys or Vikes. Then at SF.

Hopefully this time Aaron Rodgers doesn't throw a gift interception just when ALL the momentum had swung The Packers way.



Sarcasm


Blaming a loss or thinking the outcome of the game will be different because of one player IS ABSOLUTE FOOTBALL IGNORANCE!!!!!!

Packers just need to take care of their own business the next 3 weeks, They win out, there's a pretty good chance they will get a bye and be ready for whoever comes a callin'

This is actually inaccurate. If we lose to the Bears and win out we'll be 5-1 in the division to their 4-2. We'd win the division on that tie breaker.

If we finish tied to Chicago in a scenario where we have the same division record (we lose to the Bears and Vikings *pukes* and Chicago loses to Arizona) we'll advance on common opponents. The simple way to determine common opponents between two division rivals is to look at the only non-common games they had. In any given season you only have 4 non-common games: the two head-to-head (which we must assume are split or this conversation is moot) and the two games against teams finishing the same rank in the division the year prior. For the Packers this year, we lost to the Giants and won against the Saints. The Bears beat both the Cowboys and the Panthers. If we finish with the same record that means we'll have the better record against common opponents.

In short, we'll have the tiebreaker over the Bears in any scenario in which we finish with the same record*

*Includes a three-way tie with Minnesota. A three-way tie in Minnesota could end with the Packers winning the division on best division record; or Minnesota winning the division on common games (lost to both the Redskins and Bucs). We can't finish behind Minnesota in division record, only tied or ahead. Chicago would finish 3rd on common games regardless.
