Fantasy Football Extended

Most fantasy football seasons have come to a close, leaving week 17 as merely a transition from fantasy-land to the playoffs for most NFL fans. However, the possibility of the Green Bay Packers making the playoffs may be more intriguing than any prize waiver claim or mid-season fantasy football blockbuster. Should any of the scenarios below come true for the Pack, they'll claim the 6 seed in the NFC playoff tree:

1) GB win + NYG win + GB clinches strength of victory tiebreaker over NYG, OR
2) GB win + NYG loss or tie + STL loss or tie, OR
3) GB win + NYG loss or tie + CAR win, OR
4) GB win + NYG loss or tie + ATL win, OR
5) GB tie + NYG loss + STL loss + ATL loss or tie + CAR loss or tie

Philadelphia vs. Green Bay in round 1 of the NFC bracket is fantasy football. I can't think of a more favorable match-up for the Eagles. Plus, it's always fun to watch Favre go down slinging. 4th and 26? That won't be necessary this time around (but it would be nice to make Fred Mitchell an honorary captain).

As for the actual fantasy football season, I'm pretending it never happened. The Gang Green franchise suffered miserably through yet another embarrassing campaign. Three leagues participated in, zero post-season appearances, out-scored by 76% of my opponents.

If anyone can make this year's Green Bay squad a playoff team, it's the Monopoly.
