This Is Rival Talk v1.0


Recommended Posts

Everybody is so misguided in their cheering it's kinda sad.  We aren't playing for the division anymore.  We're playing for a wildcard.  We'd have to win all but two games the rest of the way to win the division. That's not gonna happen.

We need to root for the Vikings because we'll probably be competing with the Saints for a wildcard more than the Vikings with the division.

Saints first round pick is just a bonus.

Why arent we playing for the Division?
MN loses here's the standings:

MN - 4+3+1
CHI - 4+3
GB - 3+3+1
DET - 3+4

We've now got the tie break over CHI - a tie with MN - and a loss against DET - and we play each of them again.

MN loses tonight - its anybody's game for the division - so what puts it out of reach? Your projection of how / what games we'll win going forward?

No way. We need to root against every NFC North team. Try to win the division with 9 wins if need be.

It's not realistic to expect us to win the division the way we've played in the division lately.

The Vikings lead grows, I'd agree, but right now we still have a shot at the division because those teams could all split with each other. You could see the Vikes and Bears around 5-6 losses each.

Yeah I’d love a better pick from NO but I’d root for Isis if they played MIN.  

This made me laugh, thanks!

Vikes at 4-3-1 and having to go on the road in the playoffs even if they win the North is worth a higher first round pick for me as well.

If I was afraid of the Vikings winning a Super Bowl, I'd agree about rooting against them.  Kirk Cousins ain't no Super Bowl QB though.  Even with Thielen/Diggs.

So rooting for them to win and crippling their draft status while strengthening ours is the way to go.

I keep it simpler than that.
We're right in the mix now - means its to our benefit MN loses tonight and keeps it tight.

Root against the 6-1 team because we're closer to them in the WC (they lead their division btw) but if we beat in Minny we're likely ahead them, but we want them to win because we're too far behind?

And we're misguided and sad?
