    Re: How things change....

    Does anyone know the tie-breakers? What if we beat the Bears in week 17 but end up with the same record as them? Head to head the record would be 1-1, so thats a moot point. Divison record would be next, which would make both teams 5-1 (IF they beat the Pack), so we're tied on the second tie breaker as well. What's the third one? Conference record?

    These are the procedures for breaking ties to determine the wild card.

    1. Head-to-head, if applicable.
    2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
    4. Strength of victory.
    5. Strength of schedule.
    6. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    7. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    8. Best net points in conference games.
    9. Best net points in all games.
    10. Best net touchdowns in all games.
    11. Coin toss.

    So if the Falcons keep pace, we'd lose to them based on the head-to-head. And Dallas is 6-3 in the NFC right now, we're 7-4. I also think they have us beat on strength of victory, but not sure. In other words, we need the Boys and Falcons to lose.

    Dallas is 7-5 man.. They most likley will lose today too.. They are losing right now already..

    Dallas 7 5


    Atlanta is 7-5 too.. If they win tommarow we have the same record.. And we are in the 6th spot right now.. But they would have it due to head to head

    Here are the procedures for deciding a division champ, if the record is tied.

    1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games between the clubs).
    2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the division.
    3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.
    4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
    5. Strength of victory.
    6. Strength of schedule.
    7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
    8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
    9. Best net points in common games.
    10. Best net points in all games.
    11. Best net touchdowns in all games.

    So assuming we beat the Bears in the last game, and assuming the Bears beat the Packers, we'd have the same division record. What the Bears have going for them is the fact that they have beaten both the Panthers and Bucs....the Vikes lose to those teams. So they would win the third tiebreaker.

    I honestly think our chances of winning a wild card are better, since it's easier for us to get a game up on the Falcons and Cowboys than it is to get a game up on the Bears...we can't afford to tie them.

    That is correct, we would need to the Bears to likely lose in G.Bay for us to beat them in a tie ... or we can beat the Steelers, Ravens and Bears and just have them lose to Atlanta and us ... I like that way the best ...

    Re: How things change....

    If we can get some more O going I would think we could be number 2 in the NFC.. I mean our D is playing second best in the NFC I would say.. And if we can get the O going it would be tough to stop us cuz we get turnovers and dont turn over the ball

    we have to have a better record than the bears to win the division as they have the tie breaker. otherwise we will need the wild card.
    We're bringing purple back.
