Ok, we disagree. They are good, but so are we. (Personally, I suspect you are a bigger Packer fan than 49er fan.) I have seen enough from both to firmly believe that personnel wise we match up pretty well. That isn't where a game between SF and GB would be won or lost to me. I think the team that forces good play on all phases - offence, defense, and
special teams would win. (We hold a clear advantage on ST.) And the coaching staff that prepares and schemes best would win. They can play hurry-up all they want, Rogers can throw for 400 yards, but the question still remains: will they be able to score on this defense? I think not! Since the loss to the Dallas we haven't given up more than 23 points in one game, and no theam has done it since. Even in our loss we only gave up 16. In fact, as the season progresses it has become progressively harder for teams to score on us. I think this coaching staff all around is really getting better at scheming around the strengths of an all around tallented squad, and even better at making teams play mistake free football. In other words, the Packers team
are going to have to beat the 49ers team
on all three phases, and all their coaching staff is going to have to out coach ours. Thats why I like our chances in a would-be game against the Packers. I don't think they have a better team
than we do. I will give you the Packers are better offensively (though we are more versatile). Beyond that I see nowhere in a 2011
49ers/GB matchup that would make me believe that we'd lose. No one man will beat this 49ers team, not even the god (to some)
