Ok I have jinxed the Packers and there is no longer a need to continue this thread as I just decided to go the game. Every few years I go to a Packers - Bears game at Lambeau and the Packers always lose. Every stinking time (I still have nightmares of the Walter Payton memorial game) and I always tell myself never a Bears game and I keep doing it. I will accept all the hate this will bring me but I am a masochist.

Someone tweeted that if we win and the Vikes lose to Chargers we clinch the division. I don't see how that could be.

wed be up 2 games with 2 to play, and would own the tie breaker based on division record

There's a 2% chance of the Packers missing the playoffs entirely even if they win Sunday and the Vikings lose. 

I hope nothing is clinched come Sunday night. I want the Rams to beat the Cowboys and keep hot on the tail of the Vikings. 

I agree with JSO that the next three games (barring the loins game being meaningless) are really the start of our playoffs.  I understand, that for now, none of these games are must win, however; a loss this week would have tremendous impact on the rest of the season.  It would keep shitcago in the playoff hunt, it allows the queens to catch up with us, and it basically wipes out any chance for a bye week.  Despite all of the worry about the offense, the onus is on our defense to shut down shitcago.  I don't see us scoring a ton of points, but the defense needs to make sure that we don't need that many to win.

That's the most hate I can give. ๐Ÿ˜†

Oh you are as much of a jinx as I am.  I have seen the Packers play in many places and I think out of the 15 or so games I have seen they have won maybe 3 or 4 times.

I personally think the game this week is the season that is how critical I think it is.  They have to win to put pressure on the spermheads.

Tom Oates: Packers' offensive line needs to step up vs. Bears

In games where the Packers have struggled the most, there is a common theme: They faced a defense with a tough, physical, aggressive front that dominates the line of scrimmage and has outstanding edge rushers who can help the defense get to the quarterback without resorting to blitzing.

The Bears defense fits that description perfectly, which is why the outcome of Sundayโ€™s game wonโ€™t depend on LaFleur or Rodgers or Jones. Instead, the game will be decided by the play of the Packers offensive line. 

Packers 4-0 when Jones has 20 or more touches - 6-3 otherwise

I do think this is more a matter of Jones affecting the outcome of the game and not the score of the game dictating more touches. He was a big part of the reason why these games were won. 

They have done a great job of managing Jones' load this year but I think for at least the next two weeks there should be an effort to get him at least 20-25 touches. The screen game and quick passes will negate the Bears and Vikings pass rush.

I have seen 3 Packer games in Lambeau.  First was October 12, 2003, a 40-34 loss to the Chiefs.  Chiefs may have been undefeated at the time.  Pack got it to OT (they had some unlucky bounces of the ball resulting in them falling behind early).  Ahman Green fumbled and the next play was something like a 70 yard TD bomb.

Radio guys on the ride home from the game said it was probably the most crushing regular season loss they could think of.

The middle one was awesome.  Vikes tied it late with two scores.  Pack made a FG as time expired.  Third one was a loss to Carolina where two times in a row (last two drives) Carolina completed long passes to Steve Smith who was a beast that day.  Tough close loss.

1/3
