    Re: It's the Vikings worst nightmare!!

    Excellent breakdown sweetness. Every game from here on out is important if we want to make a push for the playoffs. Although the Bears O has been poor for the most part, they have shown they can put up some points. They scored 38 against the Lions (I think) and 28 against us. I know they were both early in the season but it shows they can put up points. Their D has been very good. They shut been shutting down every offense they play against. They also shut down a good Panther team. As much as they can lose a few of their remaining games, they can also win out. They are a dangerous team. Remember the Ravens O in 2000 and TBs O in 2002. Both not that good and won the Superbowl.

    If the bears beat the pack and the vikings lose to the lions, the bears magic number would be 1, since they would win the tie breaker. This is because:

    1. head to head
    the best the vikes can do is tie

    2. divisional record
    a bears win =4-0
    a vikes loss =3-2
    again the vikes can only tie

    3. common games(12 games)
    a bears win puts them at 7-2
    a vikings loss puts them at 5-5
    again the vikings can only tie

    4. conference record
    a bears win = 8-1
    a viking loss = 5-5
    Bears win tie breaker

    This shows you how important this game against the lions is.
    What it shows me is how important your games are against the Pack & the Vikes? :wink:

    If you loose to the Vikes & 1 of the GB games & we beat the Lions & you Bears;

    1. head to head - tied

    2. divisional record

    2 bears losses = 4-2
    2 vikes wins = 5-1

    If the records are tied at the end of the year, you need look no further than that.

    Re: It's the Vikings worst nightmare!!

    We've got the defense now, and a better offense than the bears. I believe the bears have played over their heads, and Orton is gonna cost them down the stretch with the pressure rising every weekend. As far as rooting for the packers, well if it'll help us.... I guess I'll be pulling for anybody to beat the bears. Skol Vikings.

    Re: It's the Vikings worst nightmare!!

    A different scenario:

    The Vikes win their next four and the Bears lose two of their next four (to Atlanta and Pittsburgh):

    They both come in with the same record...then the Vikes win....we win the division outright...screw the tiebreakers!

    Probably a more likely scenario than relying on the Packers to beat the Bears...although I will take it if the Bears lose one or both to the Pack!

    Vikes just need to win out...and let the chips fall where they may!!!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    I like your scenario best Caj, with one additional adder.

    The Packers also loose their game to Detroit, which means they get swept by every team in the division! :grin:

    Anti-Bears doesn't necessarily mean pro-Pack!

    I am rooting for the packers this weekend.I just look at it as the lesser of two evils.
    If winning isn,t everything,why keep score?

    This shows you how important this game against the lions is.


    Also shows how important the game is for the Bears against the Pack at Soldier!




    Who has the only winning record against Favre in the central?

    Minnesota!


    Who has lost all but 1 game to him on their home field?

    Chicago!



    Farve's record against Chicago playing in Illinois (they had the game in Champaign) 12 - 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    11 - 1 in Soldier!!!!!!!!!!!

    Last time Green Bay lost in Soldier field 1993!!!!!

    If Farve wins again this week in Soldier field he sets an NFL record for the most victories on an opponents home field.

    If the Pack wins, you have 2 looses in the division, and will only be 1 game ahead cause we are going to beat the lions like a drum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I think the Bears fans should be worried!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
