    You mean, "Weak Schedule" and "Under-Performing Opponents" isn't an option?

    So what your saying is we could claim the same thing about the Vikings?

    You bring up a good point for both the vikings and the Pack. Thats why the remaining 4 games are so interesting.

    Everyone thinks the vikings are a solid 10-2 team, I think the Arizona game tells more truth about the vikings than their record. The Pack was not a good/consistent team the first half of the year, who are they now will be determined in the playoffs. May be the Arizona game will have more riding on it as things play out and that will be an indicator of where we stand.

    This will get very interesting after next Sunday.

    I think you are right. If Minn loses then I will admit there is a gigantic ? over their heads as to how good they really are.

    W- Detroit 27-13......Packers W 26-0
    W- Frisco 27-24.......Packers W 30-24
    W- Rams 38-10........Packers W 36-17

    Why? We all know how it ended

    This was for common opponents and how they fared...As the rest of the games go on, i will update it

    You did see I did mention it right??? Not trying to avoid it at all..

    Just we hear how easy our schedule is, well we played 7 of the same teams and both got 7 wins

    If they loses to an excelent Bengals team???

    I think the fact that Minnesota had a weak schedule doesn't nullify the fact that they're a solid team.

    Of course, some people might have considered them an almost invincible team, then losing to the Bengals might influence their view of that team.

    But my opinion all along was not that Minnesota was so good, when we lost to them. More that we were playing like crap...

    27-20
    35-7

    Two losses the Packers had in 07 vs the Bears..

    I guess that means that the Bears were the better of the two?

    If the Pack had no chance of making the playoffs then yeah Vikings hands down are the best, but the playoffs is what matters..So how it all shakes out

    Well if they lose to Cinci then I have doubts that they can beat good teams and that makes me wonder about how they will fair in the playoffs. It' doesnt mean that they are a bad team if they lose, but it will mean that they do have some problems that could haunt them come post season.

    Right now I still believe that they can take any team in the nfl, but that could change after the next 4 quarters of play.

    After watching the Vikings getting throttled last week i needed some time off anyway. LOL. The packers are in good shape and want the Pack again at the dome this year. Either a good shot for Green Bay to show all they made the right move with Rodgers or another chance for Favre to stick it in TT's ear. The NFL will be drooling for another Favre-Rodgers dual.

    What's the excuse this week?

    Vikings whip the Bengals convincingly (a team you lost to), and the Packers are "lucky" to beat the Bears...

    Three teams coulda/shoulda beat the Pack in the last 5 weeks...

    Imo...you guys have been more lucky than good, and will get your *** whupped if you make the playoffs, in the first round.

    Haha, Queery, I don't know what's worse, that your team's future rests on the shoulders of a 40 year old QB, or that you get your jollies off coming to our forums and trying to burn us when we win.

    Just to be clear, when we're talking about being lucky we're also talking about Favre hitting a lucky pass to Greg Lewis to beat the 49ers and Steven Hauschka missing a makeable kick that would've given the Ravens the win over the Vikes, the same Ravens team the Packers beat, right?

    I just want to be clear. Something tells me it's luck when we get a hard fought win, but it's skill when the Vikings get a bit of luck to pull out a game.
