I am glad that dallas is out of the mix. Pack should make it to the super bowl but lose to NE

Should be an interesting game next week. Not a big surprise with NY as they legitimately should have beaten NE in game 16. Seems a lot like 96 with Dallas getting knocked off by Carolina. I don't see GB losing next weekend but you never know.

Who the $% cares? NOONE will beat NE this year- get it through your heads. Even if Moss doesn't touch the ball- they win. Would love to see him rip GB another new one though- sure seemed to love to do it in the purple and gold

Zamboni, you sound like a disgruntled Queen's fan to me? I agree that I don't think the Pat's will get beat this year, but Dallas did, as well as Indy.

I don't think I said anything about beating the Pats, nor did I say the Packers were going to the Super Bowl. I simply stated that the NFC team will have to win in Green Bay to make it to the big game.

Randy Moss this, Randy Moss that.......you queen fans always get your undies in a bunch when the Pack does well......relax and maybe take a boat cruise to take you mind off it grin.gif

the packers should be healthier than the G-men and win the NFC.

it's gonna take a key injury or something to beat the pats. who knows, maybe the san deigo d will get to brady. it kinda sounds like i'm rooting for an injury. i'm really not, i just think thats what it's gonna take.

Well- Rivers might be out, and Tomlinsons hurt as well. Even at 100% I don't think the Chargers had a chance, now they might as well stay home. And BTW- the Giants chances all depend on #10, he has a good Eli game and the Packs in trouble, he has a bad Eli game, and GB has no problems. Trust me, I had Eli on my FF team a couple years ago- never again, most incosistent QB in the NFL

Just look at Eli's game against the Queens. Dallas seemed to pass effortlessly on their defense most of the game, as well as rush for over 100 yards. The Giants finally got some pressure on Romo late in the game, and broke up the passing game.

Well the high temp is expected to be in the low single digits - should make for an interesting and very, very, cold game.

I agree with BnS.

You gotta give the Pack credit. They couldn't run the ball, and ever since Ryan Grant stepped onto the scene they have been smothering other teams and Grant has been running really well. I see a rematch of the 97 Super Bowl with the opposite winners and losers.

Overall, I just have to make the comment that the Packers fans have been pretty good sports this year, not too heady. Can't say the same about the Vikes' fans on these boards...too much whining IMO.

Sometimes the stars align and they did for the Pack. Young players playing well, decent schedule, tough at home, Favre playing like he's ten years younger...gotta give them credit.

Whatcha gonna do Pack when #4 retires?- back to mediocrity. I said it before- I like Favre, but hate the Packers. One question-when he does (finally) retire- what do you guys think he will do-broadcaster, coach, maybe just chill out on his acreage?

rodgers is already better than any qb the vikes have, so should be another nfc north title \:\/

i think he'll lay low and spend time with his family. he's too goofy to be a coach and to boring a speaker to be on tv. i do think he should call it a career after this dream season no matter what. cool.gif

So do you guys have a prediction for this weekend?

zamboni, I doubt it'll actually be mediocrity. Sure, Favre is the spirit and the on-field leader of the Pack, but they've got some good young talent there to build around, and if they can find even a decent quarterback to lead them (they already have one in the wings) I'd expect them to hang around .500 for the first season or two and sort of hope to limp into the wild card round. Uh, kind of like the record and playoff hopes the Vikes usually have.

Aside from being born in LaCrosse and having a childhood there during the Lombardi era — and so being genetically and environmentally unable to be a fan of any other pro football team — I've HATED the Dallas Cowboys ever since people stared calling them "America's Team." Yuck. Same reason I never want to see another winning Atlanta Braves season. America's Team. Sheesh. Give me a break. I can't tell you how happy I was to see the Giants take advantage of their fourth-quarter panic attack.

Prediction? As Eli goes, so go the Giants, and you never know how Eli's going to go. I agree somewhat with what was already stated. If he's at the top of his game it's going to be nip and tuck with no clear advantage. If he's not playing that well, the Pack should handle it with ease.

I think with the temps in the low single digits it will be interesting to see how Favre handles it. He didnt handle it well against the bears a couple weeks ago, but it was also windy to. I have to believe the cold weather will equalize the teams even more. I think Burress as big and physical as he is will be able to get free off the line of scrimmage and give the giants a few big play opportunities but the weather may make it difficult for Eli to connect. It will truely come down to a few turnovers and/or big special teams plays. The giants have to make sure they don't allow a Jennings or Driver 8 yard slant to go 80 yards also.

I said it earlier, but will say it again with a prediction-

Peyton type Manning shows up:

Giants 24- Pack 14

Archie type Manning shows up:

Pack 27- Giants 7

When Eli does well, so does the flow of their "D", thats why theres a difference in my scoring.

Grant will rush for another 200yds Pack go to the bowl.

I'll be rooting for the AFC if that happens.

i think the run games will be pretty equal. the big guy for the giants is built for the weather and runs well. it may come down to a big return somewhere. that D line for the giants is a little scary. i don't expect strahan to get a sack like the record breaker a few years ago, but they are gonna try and put pressure on. i expect lots of quick slants and screens. surprise, surprise.

Forecast for sunday: high of 4 degrees and winds gusting to 19mph. Thats worse than what the pack played in against Chicago. Wonder how Favre will respond this time as well as the GB punter.

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
