A good lesson for 49ers fans after watching the Pack lose...

Aaron Rodgers was under pressure all day and his normally reliable receivers weren't making plays...

How did the Packers offense look?

Still think a good QB can "overcome anything" to win games?

A QB is as good as his protection, WR's/TE's, scheme and coaching and development.
everyone has an off day. Some, more than others.
Is this another "Rogers would suck just like Alex if he was the Niners qb" thread? If so...

Most of the time, yes they can.

Agreed. Everyone has an off day, from Joe Montana on down.
His "off day" was the product of losing an excellent tackle in Bulaga and another Olineman. More time in the pocket = More completions. This is not hard to grasp - at least I don't think it is. Let's try again!

Every 49ers, Steeler, Packer,Cowboy team that won the SBowl had quality pass protection.

If Rodgers had more time he would have completed more passes. I don't know if they would have won since their run game was also shut down because the OLine was injured.

An "on day" doesn't guarentee a win either - that's why it's a team game.
The Packers are in for some trouble. That o-line has been decimated.

Like I've always said, football is a team game and some players get way too much credit/blame.

Good. Brings them back down to earth. Other teams can beat up on them now.
Plus Rodger didn't have his best WR in Greg Jennings. Rodgers usually just throws it up to Jennings and trust him to make the play.

I don't think you can take anything from that game. The Packers had home field basically wrapped up and it was an obvious trap game that most of the team wasn't up for. The Chiefs were playing their first game for Romeo CrenneI. The Chiefs had a major edge in terms of motivation. I can remember a 10-5 1988 49er team allowing Joe Montana get sacked something like 9 times in a meaningless regular season final, that the Rams won by 3 touchdowns. They rolled through the next two opponents easily before needing "the drive" to beat the Bengals in the Super Bowl.
The Packers can't beat teams that wear red jerseys, that's what I gathered from the loss
