    Not only will I give a big I'm sorry for my prediction for the Packers losing the wild card game but I was wondering what the next scenario would be? Will we be playing the queens or the devils? I sure hope its the former cuz I would like to see TT stick it to you know who instead of vice versa.

    I'd like to see the Cowboys beat Minny and GB beat Dallas in the Championship game in Dallas. That would be be my dream scenario. Not sure if it is possible, that there it is.

    Minnesota hosts the winner of the Green Bay - Arizona game, which undoubtedly will be Green Bay.

    Minnesota will host the highest ranked team after the wild card round which could obviously be the Cowboys if they beat the Eagles considering that a #3 seed is higher than a #5. For a self proclaimed know it all, I would think that you would know a little more about playoff match-ups.

    From NFL.com:

    "New Orleans and Minnesota captured the top two seeds, respectively, and the first-round byes that come with them. In the divisional round of the playoffs on Jan. 16-17, the Saints will host the lowest remaining seed from the wild-card round and the Vikings will host the highest remaining seed."

    Now go carry on about Brett Favre somewhere. :viksux:

    You're right about this - I follow a lot of tennis, and mistakenly figured the brackets are static, when they are, in fact, dynamic.

    So, I guess Vikings fans need to be Eagles fans next week, or it could be one-n-done for Minny - not sure how well they match-up with Dallas.

    Whatever. All you do is carry on about how much smarter you are than everyone and yet you didn't even know something as simple as how the NFL playoffs work and all because - you watch tennis? That is lame, homey.

    Go get naked to some Brett Favre pictures.

    Wrong. Minnesota hosts the highest remaining seed, whomever that is. If Dallas should beat Philly, Minny will play Dallas while the winner of our game goes up to NO.

    Lemee see if I got this straight.

    Saints play Pack or Cards at Superdome.

    Queens host Cowboys if Cowboys win.
    What if the Eagles win?

    Allow me to cover all 4 teams and where they'd go if they won.

    If GB beats ARI:
    -GB goes to MIN if PHI wins
    -GB goes to NO if DAL wins

    If ARI beats GB:
    -ARI goes to MIN if PHI wins
    -ARI goes to NO if DAL wins

    If DAL beats PHI:
    -DAL goes to MIN

    If PHI beats DAL:
    -PHI goes to NO

    That should clear things up.

    Thank you for that! Even though my head is spinning. LOL

    One more scenerio question: Could any games at any time end up back in the land of the Frozen Tundra?

    As others have pointed out..

    WTF???????????

    A person that has such high iq,is so superior to us and continues to rub it in our face how we are wrong and one of the most primitive form of playoff rules there are and you do not know?

    Where is that post YOU made talking down to someone about how they were not a "knowledgeable fan"?

    I am going to find it

    Absolutely! But it looks like a long shot at this point. For that to happen the packers and the dirty birds have to play in the NFC championship. Eagles got hammered by the cowgirls today so I expect the same thing to happen next week. Looks like lambeau is closed for the year guys.

    Lighten up, Shooter. Even Brett Favre makes an errant throw every now and again.

    Well when you show disrespect to others then you don't deserve respect in return.

    Whoa. Hold on a sec....
    Oh. My. Gawd! Hold the phone! Stop the presses! Did you just admit that Brett, the greatest QB according to you and you only, makes mistakes? I think I need new glasses. Cause I didn't really see that, did I?

    I'm sure he meant Favre throws int's that are the fault of receivers running bad routes or a bad call by some know-it-all coach. Surely, you can't blame the 4.

    Dismiss the importance of match-ups at the expense of your own mental well-being.

    Ya'll are gonna be cryin' like little school boyz and clamoring for Mutt-n-Jeff to be run outta town again - just like clockwork.

    That's one your little crystal ball got wrong. I'm pretty happy where we ended up, considering where we were last year. I don't see any reason to change our GM and coach no matter how the playoffs go. This team has improved 5 games in the win column. Your team's move has netted 2 games in the win column. And from what I've been reading from you Favre humps, it's YOUR coach that is the buffoon. If there will be crying, it will be from you clowns if the old man can't deliver.

    My my ... How fickle memory is sometimes ...

    I recall not too long ago when you were convinced that McCarthy wasn't the right coach for this team, and had "lost the team" ...

    I can only assume that once the Packers managed to win games and get into the play offs this means that you are actually crediting McCarthy for the improved play, as well as blaming the players for not being "in the right mindset" ?

    As for comparing teams with just based off win's and loses, well ... then you actually have to "revise" your thinking a little, because you are a little off base here ...

    Packers since McCarthy took over (38 wins 26 loses):

    Prior 2005 Packers - 4-12 No Play offs

    2006 Packers - 8-8 No Play offs
    2007 Packers - 13-3 NFC North Champs, Play Off berth #2 Seed
    2008 Packers - 6-10 No Play offs
    2009 Packers - 11-5 Wild Card #5 Seed

    Vikings since Childress took over (36 wins 28 loses):

    Prior 2005 Vikings - 9-7 No Play offs

    2006 Vikings - 6-10 No Play offs
    2007 Vikings - 8-8 No Play offs
    2008 Vikings - 10-6 NFC Champs, Play Off berth
    2009 Vikings - 12-4 NFC Champs, Play Off berth #2 Seed


    So you see ... - the two coaches have actually both been improving ... In fact one could argue that Childress has actually managed to has improve the Vikings more, than McCarthy has improved the Packers, since the Vikings have been steadily improving every season as opposed to the Packers in each coaches tenure ...

    As for which coach is better, it's hard to say really ... When it comes to coaches, there is really only one coach (currently) I would consider "above the rest", and that is Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots ...
