    This is one smart Yahoo football analyst...

    Charles Robinson, of Yahoo! Sports, has this to say about the Vikings and the Packers in the NFC, and I quote:

    "THE NFC BUBBLE

    Minnesota Vikings (5-4). The schedule slightly favors them over Green Bay, plus they get the Packers at home. While we're skeptical of Randy Moss ever being healthy again this season (hamstrings are serious for speed receivers), the Vikings have plenty of other offensive options left. That defense is still a big, big concern, but they'll have enough to hold off Green Bay.
    Final record: 10-6 and in as the NFC North champion.

    Green Bay Packers (5-4). They might be a better overall team than Minnesota when the season ends, but they did too much damage to themselves early. Now that Mike Sherman is calling plays and the offense is flowing through a complementary balance of Brett Favre and Ahman Green, the Packers look like a deserving playoff team. They'll eek in despite a mediocre defense.
    Final record: 9-7 and in as an NFC wild card. "

    What do you cheeseheads have to say about THAT??!!

    Not much. Just another case of people on this board thinking the media is right and loving them when they say something positive about the Vikings while anything negative stirs up hatred and is said to be lies. Personally, i couldn't care less what Charles Robinson has to say whether it is positive or negative towards the Packers.

    If you'll look over my post a few times, I don't think the words "I think this guy is right" or anything similar to that is mentioned anywhere. We'll see who's crying in their beer come Christmas Day and playoff time (here's a hint: I don't drink alcohol, I'm diabetic).

    Thanks for your opinion, though...

    I see both the Vikings and Packers going 10-6 which is going to make beating the Pack totally essential on X-Mas Eve and these upcoming division games against the Lions and Bears very important. Thus, I hope that the 2 losses that I am forseeing will not be against either of those teams.

    I agree, I was discussing this with my brother the other day, I see the Vikings and Packers finishing at 10-6 both definitely making the playoffs. from there, who knows. But both teams will be there, the NFC is weak as hell this year. Philly 8-1 Atlanta 7-2 and a bunch other teams at 5-4. parity, wow.
    Inhale it. Savor it. Drink with your eyes and taste with every fiber of your flesh, revelations come through experience.

    Hell I think a team will get in the playoffs in the NFC with a 9-7 record. The NFC is really down this year, it's pretty sad actually!!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
