I'd put the odds of a Cowboys collapse at at least 100%. I don't want to watch, but I probably will.

The Cowboys have already been destroyed in win and in games by the Giants and Eagles, it's the Redskins turn now.

Believe it or not, but the Panthers can jump to 2nd in the division with a win @ New Orleans, regardless of what Tampa does in Atlanta (likely get crushed). Unimportant to most, but ending the year on a 4 game winning streak and jumping to 2nd would almost assuredly save Rivera's job, if it hasn't been saved already.

They have to win and have the Bears, Vikings and Cowboys lose.

The Giants getting in would take a miracle.

If the Lions beating the Bears in Detroit is considered a miracle, then yeah. The rest of their needed scenario could clearly happen.

the Eagles got a miracle in 08 as they needed a bunch of teams to lose which included the Jamarcus Russel led Raiders winning in Tampa . It is the Giants after all, I wouldnt rule it out.

They are willing to piss away a valuable bye AND then most likely face the 49ers in SF in round 2 as a result, just to screw over the Bears? I find that hard to believe.

There's also this wrinkle: if the Packers lose and the 49ers or Seahawks win, the Vikings travel to Lambeau next week.

People realize the Vikes are a big rival of Packers as well right?

Infact over last 20 years the Packers primary rival in NFC North has been Minnesota (Bears were worst team in division thru late 90's and early 00's)

Green Bay won't sacrifice a bye week to keep Chicago out. That's just dumb.

I won't be surprised if Minnesota wins, but if they do, it won't be because GB gave it to them.

Bears will be without S Chris Conte and most likely DT Henry Melton ,, Loss of Conte is huge blow to D that lacks any safety depth and without Melton the Bears D has no push up middle of DL

I want to believe the players put forth a great effort and win and the team gets in playoffs

The players defending Lovie and say how much the enjoy him as coach need to put up or shut up ,, If you want him back as your coach you better turn in a fine performance and at least give the Bears a chance at playoffs

Hoping for a Ravens win, a Seahawks win with GB and SF losses. The last one is a pipe dream!

Gonna be staying up late for the WJC game between US and Can so I won't be on early.

Gotta say that I've had the most fun in this thread of any on HF. Everyone (including that Pats fan I was arguing with) are awesome on here. Fun cheering for different teams and still have good discussions and trash talk without it getting lame.

Gonna miss this thread when the season is over.

True ,, But we will still have some good threads in coming months leading up to draft

Who knows what player/coaching moves are coming in next 2 months

I'm prepared for the inevitable Vikings let down tomorrow, as is tradition.

Some random backup like Jarrett Boykin or Tom Crabtree will probably be Nathan Poole 2.0 or something.


Regardless of what happens tomorrow winning this year is a huge success in my book after winning 3 last year and me predicting them to win 5-6.

With that being said if we do in fact lose tomorrow I'll still be pissed off/disappointed for a while until the reality of the big picture sets in.

Dear Indy, please win.

Dolphins aren't going to like the foot of fresh snow that has fallen tonight. Going to a bit nippy in the Razor tomorrow.

Matt Stafford will likely go over 5,000 yards again yet he may not even reach 20 TD's

Exactly. Any fan with an IQ over 50 is rooting for the Packers to win this game. You do not sacrifice a bye just to keep another team out.
