Win the dam game and get Woodson back for the playoffs
Having to win 3 games > than having to win 4 games. This is a no brainer. Losing would be a stupid idea.

But let me remind everyone what happened last time we were able to clinch a bye and we failed to. 2002 the pack dropped one against the jets in week 17 which would have secured the bye. The next week we lost at home against vicks falcons. Moral of the story is, history doesn't matter when it comes to winning and losing. That's why you play the game
Which 1 or 2 NFC teams makes you the most nervous?
The Quest For Lombardi
Bringin' It Back Home
Where It All Began
Packers Win = 2nd Seed + 1st Round Bye + Home Field Adv (perhaps through the playoffs if Atlanta Falls)
Wild Card Games
Chicago/Giants plays 49ers
Seattle plays Washington/Dallas
We'd likely play the 49ers... but if we didn't we'd be playing the Giants (I don't think Chicago can beat the 49ers... but the Giants could somehow get their head out of their *** and win against a suddenly struggling 49er team). The good part is... one of those teams are gone.
Now some of you are saying tossing the game doesn't make sense. And it doesn't because this team is playing pretty well and taking the foot of the pedal is likely to end up poorly like it has before. Can't agree more. The only reason I'd want an bye is to get our WR healthy right now. Getting Nelson and perhaps now Cobb a weeks rest with rehab might be really important. I want these guys to keep on playing... Rodgers is the most important guy on the team and he tends to get rusty after a week off. One scenario or another they'd be getting a game off... I'd rather it be the bye week rather than a fake game against an opponent that you have to come back next week and beat.
So tossing the game doesn't really help us (it could if we could get the 4th seed... but we can't). Actually it only helps me.. the Packers would come out to the 49ers and I could go see the game.

How do the bears have the packers number? Cutler is what, 1-7 when he starts?
No way. You go all out for second seed. This seems silly to me to even consider asking this.
If I were you guys, I'd much rather play the Bears than the Vikings. I don't know how I feel about our team this year, but we have had a pretty good run at upsetting way better teams than us. Either way, next sunday we should have a pretty good game.
[Minnesota Vikings] - [Chicago White Sox] - [Purdue Boilermakers]
We need to take the Vikings down.
Packers need to take advantage of getting a bye. All of our guys who are still somewhat hurt can get that extra rest. It is also important because I do not have off of work that night !
Atlanta gets first seed.
9ers 3rd (they wont lose to Arizona)
9ers Beat Chicago
Seattle handles Washington
Atlanta Loses to Seattle
Green Bay Hopefully handles San Francisco in Green Bay. They cant fool us twice!
These scenarios set up the perfect NFC Championship game for the NFL. The Seahawks who were gift wrapped a win earlier this year come in to Green Bay where the Packers can get revenge for the win they should have had earlier in the season.
I love the playoffs!!

How the hell do the Bears have our number?
*Super Bowl XLV Champion
*Super Bowl XLV MVP
*2011 NFL MVP
better question how does a team "have our number" when Rodgers hasn't lost to them at Lambeau (where the game would be played)
