    We would need to win out to have a chance and going 2-1 the only way we could get in would mean the Bears losing every game, I think.
    Not true. It may be more complicated than this, but if we lose to New England but beat Chicago and New York, we could make the playoffs with the Giants losing one of their other games (Minnesota, Philadelphia, Washington).

      We're only one game back of the Bears.
      If they lose to Minnesota and us, they get to 2 divisional losses, and we'd have 2 divisional losses.
      We'd each have the same conference record (each would have 1 AFC loss, to New England).
      The next tiebreaker would give it to us: overall strength of schedule.

      So it ain't over yet, but we need the Vikings to beat the Bears, and we really want that game next Monday night to be in the loud, raucous Metrodump.

        If you beat the Vikings you clinch.

        Tampa is a bigger threat than New York. They have Detroit, Seattle, and then a New Orleans team who won't have anything to play for unless they beat Atlanta.

        • Well if there's any good news in all of this it's the fact that we're absolutely going to dominate teams next season.

            well unless the same thing happens next season

            I see the offensive line as a huge flaw especially for next year and until we fix that we are going to continue losing to good teams

            • Scrap the ZBS, let Colledge and Spitz walk, sign Carl Nicks, and draft Gabe Carimi.

              • Yeah seriously, the ZBS was such a big mistake, the Packers should not be a finesse running team that can't move people, that just doesn't sound right at all.

                • Well this is definitely the time to make the decision. Spitz and Colledge are done with their contracts, Wells is done next year, Tauscher will probably be cut, and Clifton is close to retirement. Any change to the offensive line needs to happen this year. I'd go hard after Carl Nicks or Logan Mankins with Ryan Kalil as plan C if he somehow makes it to free agency. Add a top level young veteran to Sitton and Bulaga and we have a nice start to having a good offensive line for years to come.

                    If we beat the Vikings we have 10 wins, the Packers only have 5 losses. So, not quite.

                      Ah right, Bears beat the Vikings plus any Packers loss and you clinch.

                        Carimi would be my ideal first round pick, but would you expect him to play LT with Bulaga at RT?

                          Well, we're basically all assuming we're at 6 losses with the trip to New England Sunday.
                          Many people are advising the Packers to not even make the trip to Foxboro.

                          Just call-in, take the L, and rest up for the Giants and Bears games.
                          Not only will it allow us some extra rest, it will most likely prevent 2 or 3 more guys from suffering season-ending injuries.

                            All we can hope for is Rodgers plays, the Pats slip up, and we pull it out. Considering probably the LAST team you want to go up against is the Patriots with a hobbled QB and tons of injuries (might not be the most physical team but they're coached to be absolutely ruthless) especially at FOXBORO.. argh.

                            We need to win out to make the Playoffs. The Vikings aren't going to win another game with T-Jax and this team utterly not caring about the season any more. 10-6 probably won't get us into the playoffs, or at least would rely on tiebreakers which NONE of us want to gamble on.

                            Please.. Please Rodgers.. come back and play with inspiration. When you see doubles, just throw right between them. When in doubt, just fall to the ground and assume a fetal position. If you feel any pressure, just FALL AND ASSUME A FETAL POSITION. DO NOT GET HIT.

                            If we get to 11-5 we'll almost certainly make it as a wildcard.

                            I think a lot of us just kind of want this season done. I think we all feel like even if we make the playoffs, someone (or 3) is going to get injured and we'll lose by less then a TD. It's been a draining season.

                            Also, here's a query. If we are eliminated from the playoff race week 16, do we sit Rodgers week 17? I say abso-*******-lutely. Tell him to hit the bench. I know it's a dreary thought but just curious.


                            When being a fanboi goes too far.

                            • Im about done with McCarthy. Even if we do miraculously make the playoffs the same **** an mistakes that have plagued us ever since hes been here will still be around. How long has he been our coach and is yet to address some of this ****?

                                I'd guess Bulaga at LT and Carimi at RT, but really it could be an open competition between them before the season.
