Great news! I hope the Pack beat the Bear and win the division. All I heard from Viking rubes was how their tie with the Packers would cost them the playoffs! Actually, that tie is what will allow the Packers to be in the playoffs with a win. Had the Packers not come back and tie that game, the Bears would have already clinched the division title. Will be SWEET if Packers win Sunday.

Aonelphea - that tie is also keeping the Pack from clinching the division without having to force Rodgers to play. Packers could've sealed this up if their defense didn't choke versus the Vikings. Win or lose the Packers season will be over by Jan. 6th.

vikings1 - as could be predicted, you are typically wrong. (But that is the case with most Viking's fans - I remember when all I heard was how much better a head coach Frazier would be than Childress.) If the Vkings had won that game against the Packers, the Bears would have clinched the division already. If the tie had been a Packer loss the Packers could still have had an identical record as the Bears with a win Sunday. But Bears would win the division based on tie breakers. Look it up!

I should also point out the obvious I guess. If the Packers had beaten the Vikings, the Packers and Bears would have identical records today. So the season still would come down to who wins Sunday. The tie gives the Packers the exact same change a win would have. Only a loss would have changed things. Viking fans think the tie hurt the Packers but in reality it is what has saved the Packers. As I said, look it up!

Oh No! vikings1, the all knowing ultimate authority and arbiter of all things sports, has spoken. I guess there's no reason to even bother watching the game this Sunday. He says it's all over by the 6th so it must be all over. So find something else to do this Sunday Packers fans. The omniscient one has spoken and now he can resume his annual November/December ritual of analyzing the purple's draft prospects for next Spring. After all, what else does he have? Oh I forgot the Texas Bowl is on Saturday and I'm sure he has visions of the golden rodents basking in a glorious Who Cares Bowl win. Oh Boy!!!

I can't remember the last time I've been a bigger Bears fan. Go Bears!!
