    Pack Nearing North Title

    Wow, this would be the first time since '03 or '04 that we would have the division title. Nice. :D

    Pack Nearing North Title

    Our magic number is 4 (which goes down to 2 if we win on Thursday). The good thing is that we need to keep winning to stay in the race for home field, so I don't think there's any problem if we end up clinching the division early).

    this is THE most important game of the regular season

    With a win the Packers will have more or less locked the division up and are GUARANTEED a playoff spot even if we loose the remainder of our games. I think if we lose this game it could spell trouble for us going to Dallas one week later after a loss to the 6-4- Lions. This game is huge and i honestly think its the most important game of the regular season including dallas. I hope we rip out the feathers off those Lions!

    GO PACK GO

    Re: this is THE most important game of the regular season

    This is huge for psychological reasons. There will be millions of people watching this game, as most people have the day off and of course students are off of school (except apparently Canada, sorry Canadians). Players will know how big of a game this is.

    How will we handle the pressure? It's especially tougher for a young team. Favre, Driver, Harris, and our other vets have been in this situation before, but not the younger players.

    Pack Nearing North Title

    I'd rather clinch the title sooner than later. Then we can concentrate on homefield advantage.

    One game at a time though. We have to beat the Lions first. They got a chip on their shoulder and something to prove, so let's not take them lightly.

    I don't think this game is special in any way.

    Just another win.

    What I Realised

    I just realised Packers 9-1 ... Lions 6-4

    If we win 10-1 4 games left ... lions 6-5 4 games left also

    So basicly if we win thursday ... and lions lose one more game after that ... wouldn't we automaticaly clinch division?

    I heard we clinch with a win Thursday.

    And there are 5 games left for each team after Thursday.

    It's actually coming on TSN, so us Canadians don't even need NFL Network.

    I'm going to fake a limp tomorrow at work, then at the end of the day tell them I have a doctor's appointment set for Thursday morning. When I come back 3 hours later I'll say the doctor sent me to get an x-ray. :mrgreen:

    Yep. GB wins and Detroit loses one more time and the Pack are NFC North division champs.

    No,

    I think you should check your math there buddy!

    10-1 means 5 games left... 5, not 4.

    We won't clinch with a win on Thursday. But we'd be up 4 games in the division with 5 to go, so it'd almost be a certainty if we can knock off the Lions.

    This game could either spring board us or possibly hurt us, especially with that Dallas game looming. If we win on Thursday, even a loss to Dallas wouldn't hurt us to badly. If we lose to the Lions and then lose to the Cowboys, our 3 game lead could quickly shrink to a single game depending on what the Lions do, not to mention they'd have the tiebreaker and a two game lead in divisional record over us.

    The sooner we get the division title, the better. THEN we can concentrate on homefield advantage.

    For the competitive athlete I think, regardless of the standings, the most important thing is winning the game at hand. I really can't wait to watch the Packers beat the Lions. :)
