Playoff Picture

First, it's great to be back in the tournament.

Now, having said that, what does the draw look like?

CosbySweater outlined the steps that would be required for Dallas to get the #2 seed and accompanying buy.  I am going under the assumption that Minnesota doesn't lose out (while hoping that they do).

If Dallas wins this weekend they clinch the division b/c a 2-0 head to head record vs Philly.

If Arizona loses, that makes us the 3 seed (11-5 vs. 10-6).

If Arizona wins, we should STILL get the 3 seed on the strength of victory tiebreaker (I think we will have beaten teams w/69 wins vs. 62 wins for the teams the Cardinals beat, but there is still a weekend left).  

CORRECTION: AZ owns the tie breaker over us, so if we both win they are 3rd and we are 4th.

As the 3 seed, we play the #6 seed, which is Philly if GB wins (with both guys at 11-5 GB wins on the record vs common foes) If we win and AZ wins then we are the 4 seed and Philly is the 5 seed.

If Dallas loses, then we are on the road in Philly b/c GB has a tiebreaker over us.

so...

 

Dallas Wins

GB Wins PHI @ Dallas

AZ Wins PHI @ Dallas

 

Dallas Loses

GB Wins @ PHI

AZ Wins @ PHI

 

This reminds me of 2007 when we swept NYG in the regular season then lost the third game.  

I think its tough to beat a NFC eastern foe three times.

I STAND CORRECTED, IT APPEARS ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROUND 3 OF DAL  / PHI.
