    Re: Packers vs. Vikings III: They Will Meet Again...In the Playoffs

    IF it happens again, the Vikes will further dismantle the Pack.
    With Harris and Kampman out for the year, there is NO WAY this happens IMO.
    I think the wild card team is from the NFC East.

    Another fan that has scripted the rest of the season already.

    The actual chances of this happening are very slim.


    First, Green Bay actually needs to make the playoffs.
    There's a good chance that happens, probably 66% looking at their schedule and based on the fact that there are two other 6-4 teams and a decent 5-5 team.


    No guarantees though, and their schedule is not a complete cakewalk.
    After Detroit the cupcakes (STL, DET, TB(ha), CLE) will be done.
    The Packers have a significant chance of losing each of their remaining games, with Seattle looking the worst right now by far.

    But the real problem comes once they are actually in the Playoffs.
    Minnesota is likely to be the #2 seed (I'd guess 75% probability).
    There's a small chance (say 20%?) that they actually pass New Orleans, and an even smaller chance that they end up as the #3 or #4.


    So if there is a 95% chance that the Vikes have a bye, then the Packers have to win in the first round on the road against a good team.
    Not likely, but it could happen (33%?).


    Then if the Vikes are the #2 seed, the Packers will likely (80%) play the Saints.
    For them to go against the Vikes in round 2 in this situation, they would need to be the 5 seed and the 6 seed would have to win as well.


    Then the chances that the Vikes win and the Pack beat the Saints?
    Not good.

    Juggling all that and a few other considerations around in my head, maybe the Pack have a 5% chance of seeing the Vikes again this season.

    Oh, and if they do, it won't be this:

    The stage is being set for this heavyweight fight now.
    It will be a one-sided beat down like we have already seen twice this year.

    Oh, and the Packers are being helped significantly by a +14 turnover ratio.
    We can see they're not that good.
    With recent injuries to the defense and the law of averages, if that number comes down it could be a very disappointing second half for the Pack.
    Darn fans trying to script out the season after week 11.

    I think the Packers will clinch a wild card berth. The cowboys will take themselves out of the picture as usual and open the door for the pack. The Packers offense is very potent and the defense is playing more aggressively since the TB game. Their O-line has finally settled down a little as well.

    They will miss Harris and Kampman but not as much as you think. Kampman has been a non-factor playing LB in the 3-4. They will be better off without him and having a legitimate LB who can actually play in coverage and space. They will compensate for Harris with a few more blitzes and rolling safety coverage that way. Just like the Vikings have managed 4 weeks without Winfield. We deperately miss him, but not enough to lose a game.

    The Packers are starting to play good football. They remind me of the Cardinals and Giants that had late season sparks carry them to the playoffs. I do not want to face them in the playoffs.

    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    My question to you then is who will win the NFC East?
    Is it me or is Dallas in 1st place as it stands right now?

    I would love to see the Pack in the playoffs, but it's unlikely. I'm sure most packer fans and even players want nothing to do with the Vikings and Brett Favre ever again. Unfortunetly for them they'll be playing Favre and the Vikings 2 more times next year and the next year and the next....
    bwahahahaha!

    Puckers don't have a easy road and this is how I see it going:

    @DET

    Most likely a win, but Det could surprise at home, but I doubt it
    BAL


    Loss, they almost beat IND, 17-15, underrated 5-5 team and can take adverse weather
    @CHI

    I say loss, CHI should have had them in Lambeau, it's up to Cutler not to INT a loss
    @PIT

    Easy loss as long as Big Ben is back
    SEA


    Win
    @ARI

    Easy loss, AZ offense will have fun with Kampman and Harris gone.

    Thus, I see the Pack going 2-4 and going 8-8, missing the playoffs.

    I think that sums it up pretty well. I see them going 3-3 at best with the current injury situation. They are going to end up 9-7 at best ... and MAYBE they will get the six seed which means that if we are the No. 2 they have to beat Ariz/East winner AND beat the Saints just to get a shot at us.

    Besides ... it does not matter. If they do face us ... we will wax them again.

    I don't see it happening at all.
    But if it did, I would be a little bit nervous.
    Anyone remember the year we waxed them out of the playoffs, the year we didn't deserve to be in them?
    Yeah.

    That would be the shit if they beat out New Orleans and came here for the NFC Championship Game. Can you imagine the media frenzy that would ensue?

    In all likelyhood both Wild Card teams will come from the NFC East. I just can't see Green Bay overcoming two huge injury losses on defense to do well with their remaining schedule. I'd would LOVE to play the Packers at the dome for the title game as opposed to going to the big easy, but in reality I just don't see it happening.
