I just hope it doesn't come down to a tie. I want to get a game up on the Hags. Beat NO on the road and somehow they lose at home. The only games I can really see the Hags losing are in SF and the NOLA game. In the meantime, we can't take a random loss. Just win out baby.

Next is division record, if same then,
Conference record, if same then,
Similar opponents (we've both lost to Colts), if same then, Strength of schedule... This is where we have the advantage (GB >>>> MIN, and WAS is >= NYG)
So, the obvious need is to continue winning and beat SEA. Then it's going 5-1 in-division. Then it's not losing another conference game (especially NO, CAR, TB, and ATL because they are shared opponents).
In all honesty, it will very difficult to win the division, unless the Hawks lose to a 'shared opponent' team.
Everything you said is true except it's strength of victory then strength of schedule. Strength of schedule is after strength of victory. Strength of victory is combined record of teams you have beat. Strength of schedule is win percentage of teams you have played (win or lost to). So like you said since we play all the same teams except those 2 "same place finish as you" division games our two teams GB and WAS are better than MIN and NYG so far and likely will be at the end of the season.
there wont be a tie, were winning this division. seattle has looked pretty shaky lately, i think theyre gonna drop a couple really soon and they will get smoked at candlestick. Aldon, Rio and Tank are in the mix now and Crabs should be back by then too, i dont see the niners losing more than maybe one "oops" game this year. back of the bus seahawks

The Cards and the Jags might disagree ;-)
Although, the Cards are at .500, so not sure the above classification applies to them.
seattle is one of the luckiest teams in the league to run into so many teams this year that have fumbled, made stupid play calls on the 2 yard line and tossed an INT in the last minutes of a game for no apparent reason. that luck will eventually run out and seattle will be seen for what it is, a good not great team that will get worked in the playoffs
