After a win today against the Lions, the Packers are sitting at 7-4. The top 4 division leaders in the NFC are pretty much set. The Cowboys would have to do pretty poorly the rest of the season and Philly would have to go on quite a streak for those two to switch places. It would be nice though considering we beat the Cowboys and would have the tiebreaker over them.

Anyways...after a Giants loss tonight, they drop to 6-5, a full game behind the Packers. We play the Ravens next in Lambeau on MNF. We could really use a win against them to go to 8-4 and damn near solidify a spot in the playoffs.

On another note...it looks like the Vikings will be in the top 2 and the Packers could end up with a wildcard spot. Say we get by the first round, how intense would a Packers/Vikings playoff game be?

Arizona could well have the NFC West locked up by the time we play them as well; it could also give the weird situation of playing them in Week 17, and then again on Wild Card weekend in a 4/5 or 3/6 matchup.

I was going to look at the other teams schedules and predict final win-loss totals, but the NFC East is such a crapshoot it's pretty near to impossible.

If the Packers met the Vikings in the Metrodome in the Division or Champ game, the pressure would finally shift to on the Vikings.

I would love to see it happen just based on the fact the Packers would get that far.

Every game is huge here on out...

I think that loss to Tampa is going to come back and haunt them. Just think 8-3 right now....would be great! Still have a great shot at making it, and I'd love to see them play the Vikes one more time!!!

I contemplated bringing this up after the first game but knew for sure it would never happen...but Favre basically told the media he knows Harris tendencies from playing with him so long that he could exploit him after the Monday Night Game...when we played them in GB I wondered if we would start Tramon Williams and maybe let Harris roam as the nickel back solely because Favre may not have been as familiar with Williams tendencies and would have bene hesitant to throw his way...now with Williams starting anything could be possible...either way...I could care less who we play in the playoffs...as long as we make it...I can see us finishing 10-6 but with the consistency problems this team has had who knows...just make the playoffs and then anythings possible

Think Atlanta might be the team to watch out for. Giants by all accounts look like toast right now as that was a game they really needed last night and yet were totally unprepared. Az, Dallas, NO, Vikes, Philly plus one. Might be the off year when a team that is 9-7 or even (god forbid) 8-8 slips in only to fly right back out in 1st playoff game. Bears, Carolina , SF, and Seattle all seem to be pretenders so that leaves Pack Atlanta, and maybe NYG if they right the ship immediately as the candidates. Atlanta schedule should be at least 4 wins out of remaining games. Pack might get lucky to face an AZ squad at end with nothing to play for.


I think this is the most optimistic post of the season from you...

I see it like this:

NY/Philly will get one spot
Atl/GB will get the other.

10 wins is a "lock" IMO...9 wins should be good.

ATL does scare me, but I'm hoping the one game cushion can hold.

Atl: Eagles, Saints, Bills, Bucs(2)
GB: Ravens, Bears, Cards, Steelers, Seahawks

Should be good

Green Bay has an 11-day week to prepare for .500 Baltimore. If Green Bay wins that game, they're pretty much in.

Negative--I would hate to go up against a Ray Lewis-led squad in primetime. He's the best leader in the league.

Positive--Fabian Washington is injured, and Frank Walker--the man Jarrett Bush beat out for a spot--is filling in.

I predict another huge game from Donald Driver.

As funny as it sounds the Packers have a legit shot at finishing 12-4 with their remaining schedule.


Baltimore: Baltimore has the personnel in their defense, but clearly this team has missed the schemes that Rex Ryan had in place. The O-Line will be key in this game.

Chicago: This team struggles on both sides of the ball and if we can get Jay Cutler to have to lead another comeback in this game then there should be no reason why we cannot win. Although we have to be careful because we blew them out in the first meeting last season and then lost the 2nd meeting in Chicago.

Pittsburgh: If any of these games would be a loss it would be this one. The loss of Al Harris could hurt us a lot with Hines Ward, Santonio Holmes, and as well as Heath Miller being Big Ben's best targets.

Seattle: This team is struggling. They are 3-7 in what could be arguably the weakest divison in the NFC and they do not appear to have a very strong running game according to the stats.

Arizona: This team's offense relies on Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin way too much. This could very well make them a predictable team with them being 27th in rushing (league rankings).

It's worth noting, however, that Atlanta already has 4 conference losses, whereas Green Bay only has 3. Even if the Packers lose to Baltimore and Pittsburgh, they'll still hold a tiebreaker with the Falcons.
