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.


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.

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



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.

GB win. The others Atl and or SF lose.

SF can lose its next two games. which are @ New England and @ Seattle. Then home for a win over AZ.
Atl has an easier schedule. NYG, @ Det, Tampa.

If GB goes 2-1 and SF 1-2 GB is the 2 seed.
Atl would have to go 0-3 and GB 2-1. Both would be 11-5 but GB would have the better conference record.

As far as I'm concerned, if the Packers get the #2 seed, that might as well be #1 seed bye proxy. I don't know about you guys, but I don't buy the Falcons at all, and feel they will be 1 and done, therefor making all visitors en route to NOLA come thru Lambeau.

Now, getting the rematches with the 49ers and/or Giants that everyone seems to think the outcome would be different in any way for some strange reason, I'm not so sure about. But that hurdle would be attempted to be jumped when the time comes.
