    [align=center]THIS IS MERELY A POSSIBLE SCENARIO FOR THE PACKERS TO GET INTO THE PLAYOFFS, THIS IS NOT WHAT I THINK WILL HAPPEN. THIS WAS DONE FOR FUN AND TO GIVE OTHERS SOMETHING TO BOO OR CHEER FOR WHILE WATCHING OTHER GAMES.[/align] :)

    Currently the teams that matter for playoff contention.

    • Cowboys 9 - 5
      Giants 7 - 7
      Eagles 8 - 6

      Falcons 7 - 7
      Panthers 6 - 8

      Seahawks 8 - 6
      49ers 6 - 8
      Rams 6 - 8

    Easiest way to get in, is this.

    Week 16
    • Minnesota (6 - 8) at Green Bay (6 - 8) - Packers
      Carolina (6 - 8) at Atlanta (7 - 7) - Panthers
      New Orleans at N.Y. Giants (7 - 7) - Saints
      Washington at St. Louis (6 - 8) - Redskins
      Arizona at San Francisco (6 - 8) - Cardinals
      Philadelphia (8 - 6) at Dallas (9 - 5) - Cowboys

    Week 17
    • N.Y. Giants (7 - 8) at Washington - Redskins
      Atlanta (7 - 8) at Philadelphia (8 - 7) - Falcons
      Carolina (7 - 8) at New Orleans - Saints
      Green Bay (7 - 8) at Chicago - Packers
      St. Louis (6 - 9) at Minnesota (6 - 9) - PUSH (Rams for hatred sake)
      San Francisco (6 - 9) at Denver - PUSH


    Teams that matter for playoff contention at the end of the season would look something like this.

    • *Cowboys (11 - 5)
      Eagles (8 - 8)
      Giants (7 - 9)

      *Bears (12 - 4)
      Packers (8 - 8)
      Vikings (6 - 10)

      *Saints (11 - 5)
      Falcons (8 - 8)
      Panthers (7 - 9)

      *Seahawks (9 - 7)
      Rams (7 - 9)
      49ers (6 - 10)


    That would mean division champ playoff spots go to
    • Bears
      Cowboys
      Saints
      Seahawks

    The two wild card spots would be up for grabs between
    • Eagles
      Packers
      Falcons

    Here are the rules for Tie Breakers.
    The Eagles DIVISION record would be 4 - 2
    The Packers DIVISION record would be 5 - 1
    The Falcons DIVISION record would be 3 - 3

    The Eagles NFC record would be 7 - 5
    The Packers NFC record would be 7 - 5
    The Falcons NFC record would be 6 - 6

    Which means Packers, Eagles IN, Falcons OUT.


    Maybe not the 'easiest' way. But its a way non the less :)

    I'm not sure what I am more impressed with:
    -Your optimism,
    -actually figuring all of that out,
    -or the fact that you only had to edit your post one time

    :razz: :thumbsup:

    Z, while I have a certain amount of admiration for your optimism, enthusism, and dedication...............
    There is a fine line to fantasy and delusion. :wink:

    Zero may your tree be filled with gifts worthy of a king :thumbsup:
    I'd love to make it but nothing hurts more then having the same record as a playoff team but losing the tiebreaker. Remember when we made it in after the Vikings blew it. Before the game which I believed left us no chance I was so pissed Seattle was getting in the playoffs even though we had the same record and beat them head to head.

    lol thx


    If we beat Seattle and had the same record, we'd have gone to the playoffs. The rules for tie-breakers are posted up above. I might not have a clear understanding of them though. :shrug:

    I only edited the actual image for the playoff bracket. I removed the junk that was on it before, added the team names and the home icon. Other than that, the layout was done for me. Although, I could have made one myself, but why waste the 5 mins when someone has a great one done already :)

    i don't think that's the only way we can get in. I'm hoping for a Dallas win tonite to put ATL at 7 losses.

    if the cowboys win one game it makes it harder for us to get in...


    i honestly dont think this will happen of course, but i thought it was neat that with 3 games left there was a possible way to get in the playoffs

    If Dallas wins the division we wont have to worry about them. When ATL losses tonie, they'll have 7 losses. The loser of the Giants-Eagles game will also have 7 losses. It'll look like this in my mind after tomorrow:

    5) Giants 8-6
    6) Philly 7-7
    Atlanta 7-7
    Carolina 6-8
    Green Bay 6-8
    Minnesota 6-8
    St. Louis 6-8
    San Francisco 6-8

    Philly and Atlanta play in Week 17, so one of those teams is guaranteed to have 8 losses. Philly plays at Dallas, Atlanta hosts Carolina.

    So we need the Eagles to lose these next 2 games and then beat Atlanta. We win out, and we're right there.

    Giants have a tie breaker over us with NFC wins.
    Eagles have tie breaker over us since they beat us this season.

    at this point, we can only hope to get the #6 seed. The Giants will be the #5 seed.

    If that's the case, Atlanta needs to lose tonite to Dallas and next week against Carolina. Philly needs to lose these next 2 games. Atlanta then would need to beat Philly, giving them 9 losses.

    That's not possible. If the Giants lose the last three games they will be 7 - 9.

    Very impressive original post Zero.

    That was a great deal of work and I for one appreciate it. It s a damn good post.

    I will be happy with just a Packer win this week though to start off with.

    I will hope the Lions lose next week so the Raiders can get the first overall Pick

    I'm predicting the Giants to be the #5 seed, sorry if that was unclear.

    That was exactly what got me by surprise. I took for granted since we beat SEattle head to head we get tie breaker but just before we kicked off against Denver they announced Seattle was in and GB needed Minny to lose. Turned out if 3 teams are tied then head to head doesn't matter between 2 teams. I believe us Seattle and Dallas were all tied. At least we were saved by the Cardinals. :feedback:
