    Re: Decision time

    It would be best for us if the Bears win tonight and lose to us and the cheeseheads.

    Re: Postseason Possibilities?

    after this game, winning the division is a very slim chance. I really think we need to focus on a wildcard birth.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Re: Postseason Possibilities?

    I think the Vikings have a better chance at a Wildcard than winning the division against the Bears.

    We can't win the division unless the Packers beat the Bears,
    and that ain't gonna happen.

    We need Atlanta to lose IMO.

    Guys if the packers beat the bears the vikes have the tiebreaker. A Falcon win tonight would really hurt the vikes chances at the wild card... its pretty simple, we need the bears to win tonight just in case, then lose the next two while the vikes win out and the vikes have the division. IF the Bears beat the Pack next week the Vikes can't win the division. Therefore a Bear win tonight HELPS not HURTS us! Meanwhile a FALCON win would put the Vikes further out of the wild card, that all said, we need the bears to win tonight.
    There are only two wildcard slots in the NFC.

    The following teams still have hope. The tie-breaker goes with the best head-to-head, to games played within the division, to games played within the conference, etc.

    So, that leaves us with needing a better record than the Falcons and/or Bucs and/or Panthers since they beat us in the head-to-head and would win a tie. If it goes to the next level it comes down to within the conference, again, another tight race.

    Cowboys 8-6 (playing Redskins right now)
    NFC 6-3

    Redskins 7-6 (playing Cowboys right now and leading 14-0 in 2nd)
    NFC 7-2

    Vikings 8-6
    NFC 7-4

    *Bucs 9-5 (own tie-breaker with Vikes)
    NFC 7-3

    *Falcons 8-5 (play Bears tonight) (own tie-breaker with Vikes)
    NFC 5-4

    *Panthers 10-4 (own tie-breaker with Vikes)
    NFC 7-3

    *One of these teams will take the NFCS.

    ===============================================

    The best option is to have the Bears lose out and the Vikings win out, or to have the Bears win tonight and lose at Lambeau and in MN, the Vikings need to win out. Either way they get the NFCN crown. The wildcard possibilities look too bleak.

    Re: Postseason Possibilities?

    There's still some hope for this year. Randy Cross kept saying throughout the game that all Vikings fans are going to be watching, rooting against the Bears tonight. Actually, the game tonight has NO implications on the NFC North. The division will come down to the Bears @ Packers and the Bears @ Vikings.

    For argument's sake say the Vikings beat the Ravens next week. Then if the Bears lose to the Falcons, beat the Packers, and lose to the Vikings - Chicago (10-6) would beat the Vikings (10-6) based on the third tie-breaker -record vs. common opponents (head to head and division record are the first two tie-breakers).

    So no matter if the Bears win or lose tonight, we need the Packers to beat the Bears at Lambeau and then the division comes to the last game of the year at the Metrodome. If the Vikings would win, they'd win the division based on division record.

    If anything, we want the Bears to beat the Falcons since Atlanta is one of the teams we're battling for the last wild card.

    It pains me to say this but the team we should be rooting for the most next week besides our Vikes is the Green Bay Packers, ugh.

    We should know if still have a chance for a Division title before kickoff of next weeks game.

    LET's GO PACKERS!!!!! (that doesn't feel right)

    I think the Packers stand a chance of beating the Bears. Last time they played the Packers would've won if not for Brett Favre handing the game to the Bears at the end.

    After looking at the schedule, the best scenario is for Ron Mexico and the boys to beat the Bears tonight followed by a Bears loss at Lambeau followed by a Vikings win to start off 2006.

    The Vikings win the NFCN outright.

    Screw the tie-breakers.
    We don't want the Falcons to win. The Falcons @ Bears game has almost no implications on the NFC North. No matter if the Bears win or lose tonight, we need the Packers to beat the Bears. The only way tonight's game helps us to win the division is if we end up losing to the Ravens. Here are a couple scenarios:

    If the Bears win tonight, they'd have 10 wins to our 8. If they lose to the Packers and we beat the Ravens next week, we'd have 9 wins to their 10. Then if we beat them at home the last game of the season, we'd each have 10 wins and it comes down to tie-breakers.

    1.) head to head record (1-1) = push
    2.) division record (5-1 Vikings, 4-2 Bears) = Vikings win division

    If the Bears lose tonight, they'd have 9 wins to our 8. If they beat the Packers and we beat the Ravens next week, they'd have 10 wins to our 9. If we beat them the last game of the year, we'd each have 10 wins and it comes down to tie-breakers.

    1.) head to head (1-1) = push
    2.) division record (5-1 Vikings, 5-1 Bears) = push
    3.) record vs. common opponents (3-5 Vikings, 4-4 Bears) = Bears win division
