That's right it's senario and what if's time of the NFL season. So as of right now with Week 12 in the bag, here's a senario how the Vikes can win the division:

If we win at Chicago, at Detroit and at home against
Green Bay and Green Bay loses one other game (at Phili
for instance) we win the division!

I think your right. If you have the most wins this season, you win the division. I also think that if you score more points than your opponent, that you win the game. Whats funny is, when you score less than your opponent, you loose the game.

Don't ask me, thats just the way its set up.

Its all up to the 24th. If the Pack lose in Philly (yes, even I admit it could happen) and both teams win out otherwise... its all down to the 24th. Since the Pack would be a game back, they could gain a game and the tiebreaker with that win.

anyway, should be a GREAT game... and both fans hsould be nervous. (Of course, both teams could, and might lay an egg before that!)

I don't think either team will run the table. Obviously one will lose at least once, but I think both will lose at least one more.

I disagree. With 5 games to go, how can you say it all comes down to one game on the 24th?

What if the pack lose their next two game and the Vikes win their next two games, does it still come down to that game? No, it doesn't. What about winning the next three? You are wrongly assuming that both teams will have identical records going into the 24th. they may, but the games have yet to be played.

I said both teams could lay an egg didnt I?

Read the WHOLE post next time before you make a swift response.

#1- I think that both teams will win out. I think they are both insanly talented and have a TON more to play for than anyone else in the NFC.

#2- I think the Vikings have the tougher road in the sense they have no "big game" other than the 24th to get ready for. They have been playing down to their competition. You can deny this, and yes, a win is a win, i will ALWAYS say that, but... dont igore it either.

best of luck to the packers... obviously i want the vikes to do well these next couple of games but i wouldnt mind it all to come down to the wire on the 24th.

sure theres a couple of games after that but its going to be an incredibly good game, and a seriously important one

You forgot one point.

If your star QB blows the ref before the game you are likely to win.

Favre is a whore.

He blew the refs in GB before the Vikes game and also in Houston before the Texans game.

I sure hope he has it in him to blow the refs before the Philly game. I heard that McNabb likes to blow also so it will come down to who swallows better.

OK that was in bad taste, no wait, that is what Farve is going to be saying.

Don't ask me but that is just the way it happens.

You forgot to mention seattle. We obviously dont want to forget about that part. IT could still make a difference.

Blowmeinapril,

Wow, You mean everytime the packers win, its 'cause Favre blew the refs? Huh, I did'nt know that.

Am I correct in assuming that all Viking wins can be attributed to Dawn-tay servicing the refs as well?

When your team is'nt getting the props like your rival, and you are feeling jealous, play the BJ card.

Or, when you can't face the facts, you can always play the "Your an idiot" card like Purpleho does.

RACK HIM !!!

I have been reading of these posts of "eyesores". This guy is a moron. Some little kid just throwing his immature comments in our forums. If you do not reply to his posts, he will leave.

As far as "vikes09" saying best of luck to the pack... are you fricken kidding me? Why in the hell would you wish them guys any luck other than bad? They are our greatest threat in the division in case you have not noticed. I guess you want us to be tied up with them when we play. So, then if we lose they win the division! Is that what you want? Now, I am a hardcore, long time Vik's believer and fan. But, they have been known to "blow it" (Arizona game, ring a bell) So, I do not want the pressure of it coming down to one game against Favre. I hate him, but respect his QB ability.

I've said this before. Winning out in the division is critical for the Vikings. If they do that, then the Packers have to run the table in all their other games (except for their loss to the Vikings, obviously) to win the division. And even then, if the Vikings win out in the division and beat either Seattle or Washington, then they win the NFC North.

It all comes down to assuming that the Vikings and Packers will finish tied for the division lead at the end of the season. Whichever team has two division losses will finish second. Pack already has a loss to the Bears, the Vikings have a loss to the Packers. If the Vikings lose Dec 24th, then about the only way they could win the division is to have GB lose two of their other four games, which isn't likely.

The NFC North title will be decided on Dec 24th, folks.

There is no other scenario. It is a must win against Bears, Lions and GB. I have been saying the same thing since the loss to the Packers 3 weeks ago.

What upsets me is the commentators that are coming down so hard on the NFC. It is highly likely that the Vikes and GB are going to both finish better than 10-5 and that is not a bad record by any means. The NFC has just gotten off to a bad start this year.

I am starting to believe the purplepriders that have been predicting winning out the season. I see our confidence level and focus level increasing. Tice needs to Stress to the players, one game at a time and the importance of each game, every week.

The only games that concern me now are the GB game at home and the Wash game on the road and 3 out of 5 on the road?????

Ultravikingsfan,

Thanks for taking the time to read my posts. In return, I promise to read yours.

In the last 24 hours, Vikes fan have called me an idiot, a jackass, and now moron.

Some of you take this so personal. If you can't compete in the debate, glad to know you can always retort to name calling. Whats next? the standard 5th grade response " I know you are, but what am I ? "

Personally I don't think eyesore is an idiot, but the quality of some of his posts certainly doesn't contradict that point of view.

WE just don't take kindly to people who just come here to start sh*t. If you want to talk football, talk football. ANy idiot with a keyboard can just come on here and trash talk, just look at 'Duhbears.

We can talk football, but I do like to spinkle just a little bit of "smack" just to make it interesting.

I'll show some goodwill here;

I hate the Metrodump, but it is a huge advantage for your team.

I know that I am guilty of a fair bit of trash talking on this forum (usually in response to others), but it would probably be better to confine the smack to the two forums that are designated for this (namely, "Trash the Pack" and "Weekly Opponent Smack")...that way, those who don't want to be exposed to it, can just avoid the smack posts.

Thats a heads up Idea Cajun. I think, me being a Packer fan, is what I'll do. If I see something that irks me in any other forum, I'll just reply with any relative football analysis that applies! lol

If that floats your boat, go for it...BTW, personally I don't care where the smack is talked...as long as the smacker is prepared to get smacked in return (whether they be Pack fans, Vike fans or any other fans). The only reason that I suggest confining the smack is out of respect for my fellow posters who come here to talk seriously about football and don't want to be distracted by those of us who would rather mix in smack talk with our football. 8)

I will give you a break now that I know where you stand. You came across a little too sarcastic on your first post on this thread. We have some Intelligent Packer Fans here, and our site is better for it. Show your true colors first then talk smack once we know you better. You are like on your first date here or a freshman weed out course at college.

Well he cries about name calling and the lack of intelligent coversation. Then when someone does try to respond to him he tries his best at sarcasm and all this effort just to increase the size of his E-peen.

When you attack the people posting, are extreemly hypocritical in your failed attempts at intelligent conversation, and try to make fun of people because they don't live up to your godly standard of diction and prose well I don't see why anyone shouldn't resort to name calling.

You can beat around the bush try and elevate your "game," on your E-peen journey. Smirking behind your computer screen with your Jergen's unscented.

Or you can do what some here have chosen to do just state it like it is. Then when you see someone *gasp* called you a name you pretend to take the higher road when in fact you are just spouting off some of the most useless shit in an attempt to stir the pot.

I've read other posts of yours so let me help you with your common responses to save you time.

A) Nice Del Rio your mommy help you with that

B) I see you tried your hardest and I appreciate the effort I hope you didn't wear yourself out thinking up that response.

C) Learn how to spell

D) I'm a dumb ass packer fan who lurks on the Viking boards trying hard to inflate my Jergen covered E-Favre
