    As un-thinkable as this is.... The Packers draft position should now be a following that every Packer Fan who looks beyond this season should consider.

    Help me out here please.... What is the tie breaking procedure for teams (Getting a higher pick.) that are tied for the least effective winning record. I am thinking it would be strength of schedule.

    Does anyone know if this fact? If it is fact, does anyone know where I can log on and see the NFL Strength of schedule rankings going into the 2005 NFL Season? Or does the strength of schedule change based on the win loss records of the teams we played?

    If the season were to end right now who would get the 2nd pick?

    NYJ 2-10 AFC ?

    GB 2-10 NFC?

    SF 2-10 NFC?

    NO 2-10 NFC?

    Here's the tie breaker info:

    Determining Order of Selection
    • The team with the lowest winning percentage at the end of the previous season drafts first in the NFL Draft.

    • The rest of the teams are placed in order from lowest winning percentage to the highest.

    • The Super Bowl winner drafts last, even if they do not have the highest winning percentage.

    • The Super Bowl loser drafts next to last.

    • Strength of schedule for the previous season is the first tie-breaker for teams with the same winning percentage. (this means the 2005 season not 2004.)

    • Divisional and conference records are the next step in the tie-breaking procedure.

    • As a last resort, a coin toss is used to determine the order of selection for teams with the same winning percentage.

    • If a playoff and non-playoff team end the season with the same winning percentage, the non-playoff team selects before the playoff team regardless of strength of schedule.

    Great Blue said all 5 teams with the worst record lost yesterday so the order of the draft remains the same.
    Hou
    NYJ
    SF
    GB

    From what I can gather, If we win one more game and 5,6,7 and eight lose the rest of their games we would drop to the 8th pick. This would be due to Green Bay opponents having a higher winning percentage.
    If we lose the rest of our games and 2 and 3 win one more, we could move up to 2nd, but even if Houston won 1 more and we lost the rest of ours, Houston would still have the 1st pick due to GB opponents having a higher winning percentage.
    Does this sound about right or have I gathered wrong?

    you've gathered wrong.

    based on SOS, GB currently holds the #2 spot behind Houston. if the SOS doesn't change and Houston were to win one, GB would assume the #1 spot.

    for what its worth

    Houston
    @ Tennessee
    vs. Arizona
    vs. Jacksonville
    @ San Francisco

    Green Bay
    vs. Detroit
    @ Baltimore
    @ Chicago
    vs. Seattle

    San Francisco
    @ Seattle
    @ Jacksonville
    @ St. Louis
    vs. Houston

    NY Jets
    vs. Oakland
    @ Miami
    vs. New England (monday)
    vs. Buffalo

    New Orleans
    @ Atlanta (monday)
    vs. Carolina
    vs. Detroit
    @ Tampa Bay

    my observations...the Jets have the most winnable games, three home games against some not-too-great teams. New Orleans is screwed with three tough division games minus a possible win vs. Detroit. San Francisco has three tough road games and plays Houston the last week which could make the draft scenario interesting...Houston could possibly win at Tennessee, vs. Arizona or vs. San Fancisco. The Packers could logically beat Detroit or Baltimore...interesting standings to cover

    San Francisco against Houston in final game of the year. ESPN will have fun with that.

    Here is another site that also has GB w/ the #2 pick. Sorry about the earlier error. When you go to these draft sites you would think they know what they are talking about.

    CBS Spotsline differs from everything else I've read so I wonder who really knows.

    Looks like Houston vs SF game at end of year could be big in determining draft picks. But if either team wins that game it is will be an upset.

    One of the problems in handicapping the draft is that each site uses a different perspective of the strength of shedule issue. If the draft were held today the Packers would have the #2 pick in the draft based on the current 12 game schedule. If ,as many sites do, you add in the rest of the shedule and use week 12 standings the GB moves back to 4. I suspect form perusing the schedule if Houston doesn'y lay down they should beat either Zone or the 49ers. If Sherman sits Favre in the 2nd half we may not win another game and then this discussion will take on new meaning.

    Packers will draft top 5 no matter what and with this draft, I see quite a few of game breakers. It'll be interesting to see what the Packers do in April.

    is there talk of rodgers playing the 2nd half?

    i would personally like to see it. it would be nice to get him some game snaps and this is the season to do it.

    i think the SOS will roller coaster some thru the next 4 games but if gb loses all 4, i like our chances at #1. houston should win a game, maybe 2 with sf, az and ten. who knows with the nyj. that division is tight. NO already has 3 wins. we might have to hope houston beats tenn and/or az and sf takes out houston the last week. but then what are the chances that the lions can beat gb this week?

    Unless TT decides to trade down, which I have a feeling is a very likely possibility with him.
