The odds for my Packers looked like this:
Among the several scenarios that could put the Packers in the playoffs, the most likely involve the New York Giants losing to the Washington Redskins on Dec. 30 and the Packers beating the Bears the next night, plus ONE of the following three pieces of help:
A St. Louis Rams loss to the Minnesota Vikings;
A Carolina Panthers victory over the New Orleans Saints; OR
An Atlanta Falcons victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
It is still possible for the Packers to qualify for the playoffs if the Giants beat the Redskins, but it would be mathematically unlikely for Green Bay to win the "strength of victory" tiebreaker over New York in that scenario. - from Packers.com
So of course, the Redskins lost. GRRR.
Well, we CREAMED the Bears! So, while it ends our season, it was a good win for our new team, and leaves us 8-8 when we started out 1-4! Only Brett Favre knows if it was his last game, but it's looking that way.
For the TN Titans to make the playoffs, the Steelers, the Chiefs and the the 49ers hadd to win yesterday. What would be the odds of all of that happening?
But that's exactly what happened.
But there was one more piece of the puzzle. The Titans had to also win yesterday. But the Patriots beat them.
We started out so badly that even considering making the playoffs was ridiculous, though.
