You're trying to rain on my parade.

Who knows what will happen. The Packers can be exposed. Just ask the '07 Patriots. Who better than us to expose them. I don't think anybody, no homer. What the Packers are doing on offense is no mystery.

Or the 84 dolphins , who were exposed by Walsh.

Exactly. Good comparison and it fits. We got after Marino in that SB, which hadn't really happened to him that season.

Although the 84 49ers team has an edge in the secondary IMO.

And I think an edge with the overall pass rush. Overall It was one of the all-time great teams.

#13 in PPG. Their defense isn't as bad as some people say it is.
We will not try and stop Aaron Rodgers we will stop Aaron Rodgers

They give up a lot of points because they're allowed to gamble on many plays. I like their D
Its a fairly simple scheme but hard to accomplish: Get pressure with 4, limited explosive pass plays and sure tackling= 49ers win.

Niners can do it but they need to use the RIGHT 4.

Brooks and Aldon Smith on the ends (no Haralson) and Justin Smith and Ray McDonald as the Tackles (No Sopoaga). Those are your 4 best pass rushers.

You could even move Aldon inside and bounce Justin Smith outside at times (Aldon played some DT at Mizzou).
GB average points vs the 13th and 14th rank defenses in ppg: 26

GB average points vs the 20, 26, 31, 31, 25, 29, and 30th ranked defenses in ppg: 38 ppg


I think it is safe to say why GB offense is looking "unstoppable" this year. They have played some of the worst defenses in the NFL.

if greenbay does lose a game and we win out, what is the tiebreaker for the top seed?

Common opponents then strength of schedule.

Our common opponents our Detroit, St Louis, Tampa Bay and the New York Giants.
Actually, we use the conference tiebreakers listed under the wildcard rules:

Head-to-head, if applicable.
Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.
Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.
Strength of victory.
Strength of schedule.
Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.
Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.
Best net points in conference games.
Best net points in all games.
Best net touchdowns in all games.
Coin toss.

Assuming we both somehow end up at 15-1, GB would have to lose to an NFC team for us to look at common opponents. If we both swept the common opponents, than I'm guessing GB would likely win strength of victory.

In short, we'll probably need a better record to get the top seed. I don't think a tie will cut it.

If we go 6-0 in the division and they lose to the Lions or Bears, we would have the tie breaker. I am hoping for Chi and Det to win. I expect a real close game more with Chi than Det.

Still, it's a long seven games and anything can and will happen.

Right now, I'm am wanting a win against the Tards!!!!

My bad...I thought the division standings count. They do if both teams are from the same division. If not, it's conference.
