I think that Andy Reid and Wilford Brimley are the same person.

Tryin to recall if it was the Cowboys or Eagles who WON TH AFC WEST TITLE tonight...hmmm. What's that? Neither may even make the playoffs? Peculiar. I may have to cipher through these standings again.

OK, and now I can post this after all.

I'm 98% certain that Dallas's win officially eliminates... Carolina. It's no longer possible for Carolina to work themselves into a tie for the last playoff spot at 7-9 that they can win. Any such tie would definitely involve someone from the West: either Seattle (who beat them), St. Louis (more conference wins, or CW), or Arizona (see below). Then there may be someone from the other divisions:
From the East, either Dallas (who beat them), Washington or New York (more CW), or Philadelphia (fewer CW, thus irrelevant in the tiebreakers
From the North, either Detroit (more CW) or Minnesota (who also lost to Seattle).
So the only hope is no one from the East, Arizona from the West, and maybe Minnesota from the North. Without Minnesota, Arizona wins on common games (at least 3-2 vs 2-3). With Minnesota, the three-way tie goes to strength of victory. I'm not certain it's mathematically clinched, but Arizona would have wins over NE, MIA, PHI, SEA x2, and two of (CHI, DET, SF). Minnesota would have wins over DET x2, ARI, SF, STL, JAX, TEN. Carolina would have wins over OAK, SD, PHI, WAS, ATL, NO x2. I find it highly unlikely the last of those would be the most prestigious.

Well, mathematically.

But realistically, Arizona, Carolina, and Philly are all eliminated, and Minnesota has virtually no shot.

Philly cannot win a wild card spot anymore but can still win the NFC East. Winning the division is their only remaining path. As for Carolina, according to the playoffstatus site, they still are not mathematically eliminated, but my attempts at getting them in via the espn playoff simulator always fail to either Arizona or Seattle.

And Romo now has more TD passes than Aikman and more than Staubach. and five fewer rings. Something seems wrong with this picture.

Zoomaster: justtray: Zoomaster: justtray: Vikings gave the game to the packers. Like roddy white said, "not like they came here and beat us."

Ponder + Refs = 3 less scores

==============================

Packers have won seven of the last 10, including 45 - 7 in 2011, the largest winning differential in the history of the rivalry.

/I don't think the Viqueens are giving them all to the Packers

==============

They gave them this one, the only one that matters. I can tell you know it's undeserved based on your mad response. Just take the free gift, it won't be free when the game is in Minny

================

Not a mad responce, I just googled the record since McCarthy took over and found that.

/Teams don't "give" away victories
//they may play poorly and loose
///See Cheesehead_Daves post

===================

More for the Viking fans reading pleasure.


Morgan Burnett's end-zone interception of Ponder's foolish pass loomed large as large could be Sunday after the Packers pounded out a gratifying 23-14 victory at Lambeau Field.

That was it for the Vikings, who melted away to 6-6 after the Packers expended the first 11 minutes of the fourth quarter for a clinching field goal.

Peterson's 210 yards rushing was the most against the Packers in 23 years and the third-highest total ever. It also was his best game since 2007.

Just imagine if Musgrave had called Peterson's number on more than just 21 of the team's 53 snaps.

"An average running back today would have had 50, 60 yards," said Pickett. " 'AP' had 200. It wasn't like we were getting beat up. He would just make people miss.

"He normally gets us once a year. So maybe when we go up there (Dec. 30) we can slow him down a little bit. He's on his own level."

The Packers are a level above the Vikings, too.

"They should run him until he can't even breathe," defensive end Ryan Pickett said. "I don't understand why they wouldn't. I ain't seen nobody stop him. No one.

"If I had him, I probably would be tempted to not even pass."

"It was a very disappointing loss," said coach Leslie Frazier, whose Vikings now have lost five games in a row to Green Bay and 16 of the last 20 meetings at Lambeau Field. "Our guys played extremely hard. Green Bay was better. They beat us."

This could be the rose tint in my glasses, but I think the Cowboys players of Aikman's era were better than the current team. He definitely had a better O-line up until the last year or two he was there. Staubach supposedly likes Romo because Tony reminds him of himself, but Roger the Dodger was a whole lot more mobile than Romo is. Or so I gather from my father's recollections and the few bits of Staubach game footage I can find on youtube.

Bah, I feel asleep in the third quarter and it looks like I missed the important part of this game.

Was this another case of the Eagles D quitting or was it a legitimate Romo comeback?

Just watched the 4th quarter highlights. Seems that it was the Eagles secondary quitting AND Romo leading a comeback, but mostly the Eagles secondary quitting.

Romo has more TD passes than Aikman = individual accomplishment

"Rings" = team accomplishment

Romo lead a comeback, Dez made some seeeeeeeeeeerious catches, DeMarco Murray is DeMarco Murray..... and the Eagles secondary entire team quit like, a month ago. So. Team effort.
