    We won the lottery for playoff tickets at Lambeau Field. Now the Packers just need to cooperate and beat the Bears Sunday. Or, win the division later, but I think good chance of winning Sunday. (-3) and clinching.

    History: The Packers used to play 3 games (2 reg, 1 pre) in Milwaukee. Those of us who had season tickets for those games had the opportunity to purchase a 3 game package at Lambeau.
    Anyway, the GB season ticket holders get first choice and whatever scraps are left go to us former Milwaukee season ticket holders in a lottery system. We got picked this year.:banana:

    Bears can make the playoffs so they can get blown out in round 1

    Not picking on Da Bears! But Cutler never ceases to surprise me in his decision making and I still remember Lovie's press conference when he was hired. Words to the effect of... My number one priority is to beat the Green Bay Packers. I think he is 8-10 against GB.

    I'd like to see a GB win and also cover -3, but we'll see. A win locks in at least one Lambeau home playoff game!:thumbsup:

    I'd sure like to see the 49ers and Falcons stumble in the home stretch.

    Good luck on the tickets, Hoping my Pats put another hurt on the 49er's this Sunday (it will be really different to watch them in Vegas) and inching to a #1 seed and yet another SB appearance, I would love to see them play the Pack, seems the Giants own us :rolleyes2: so us beating the 49er's can maybe get you a 1or 2 seed.

    As a fellow a Wisconsinite, transplanted to FL, I am uber envious. Don't worry about the bears, we will prevail. Have fun in the cathedral known as Lambeau.....:nworthy:

    Crazy to think, 4 games into the season the Packers didn't even look like they'd make the playoffs. Quite a great turnaround, especially with all the injuries. Had you told me then Matthews and Jennings would each miss most of the season and they will win the North, I woulda called you crazy. But it will happen now. Good luck Joe on getting seats, hopefully you get 2 games instead of one. The Falcons are very beatable as of late, as are the 49'ers, so it could happen. Might actually shake down to the Packers getting a bye, then hosting second week of playoffs, stranger things have happened

    I kinda hope we don't get that bye. As we saw last year it can be a huge momentum killer. But if we have injured players it might come in handy. But you are correct, what a turn around since week four.:peace:

    The pack is a fine team, same with the pats.

    Lucky for them both they had fairly easy schedules.

    The packers can have all the byes they want but the meeting with the Giants is coming and the only way they can get out of it is to either quit early or get run over.

    Sorry to be the party pooper but the pick has been made.

    Ny Giants will beat the Texans in the superbowl.

    I know its not what you wanted but i have my mind made up and thats that.

    keep in mind I have a pretty good track record of picking winners.

    better then 90% if you need to be reminded.

    Please dont let this inside knowledge ruin the fun of going to the game though.

    How are the Texans going to beat the Pats when just a week ago they were embarrased by them? And I am using the term "embarrased" loosely, the Patriots whooped their asses. The Patriots have been the best team all season, all their losses were very close, including the loss to the Ravens which shouldn't have happened. They shored up giving up the long pass with the Talib trade and are easily the most complete team in the NFL now.

    Patriots over the Falcons in the SB. Mr Brady gets a ring for all his fingers- only the thumb is left.
