I guess you missed the Saints playoff game in the divisional round, understandable since you probably were still stunned by the ass whooping the Giants were putting on your elite QB. By the way, it will not be Smith vs. Rodgers, it will be Smith vs. the 31st ranked defense from last year and Rodgers against the best D in the league last year.

So many variables to consider, but I like your thinking.

Do you think the death of Joe Philbins son the week of the game had something to do with Gb laying an egg? It couldn't have helped IMO.

And come on, the packers YPG allowed is warped as they were ahead big in nearly every game. Teams were in pass mode the entire game. I'm not saying they're a great D or even good but they are opportunistic and will create turnovers. Considering our offense biggest claim to fame was avoiding turnovers last year, we either match up well or not depending on how you look at it.

I do think we were the best defense in the league however I think they were the best offense. We are vulnerable through the air versus elite QBs, their offense vulnerable to physical smash mouth defenses.

This game should be a real treat.

I'll be posting here the next week or so to gain some rival perspective.

My personal prediction: 31-23. GB
Packers get on the board first with a couple big plays early, forcing the 49ers to abandon the run and play catch up, an exercise in futility against the reigning MVP.

Well, I do agree that if stellar niner D can not put pressure on AR and the Packers strike quickly through the air and go up a couple of scores early, then the niners will have trouble keeping up given JH's persistent run-first system. Even if JH does open up the passing game and tries to play catch up, it hasn't looked all that great in preseason as every qb has consistently overthrown WRs deep including our starting qb who has well-known problems with his accuracy downfield.


49er fans don't realize how good Aaron Rodgers is and Packer fans don't realize how good our pass rush with Aldon Smith is. It's going to come down to our pass rush vs their quarterback. Also, that place is going to have a ton of energy, whomever makes the big plays early will set the tempo.

I am already likening Rodgers to a HOF QB in steve young. They are the same height, Rodgers has some of the scrambling abilities and escape ability that young had, the efficiency is on par if not greater, he is a champion, they run the same offense in many ways, and they both learned a great deal from another HOF QB as they sat on the pine.

That said, I don't know how many 49er fans can't see how good GB offense has been with Rodgers under center and I agree a big part of this game will be our front seven vs their backs, QB included, but I think just as much of the game will come down to can they stop us from running without stacking the box and if they stack up vs the run, can they contain our playmakers out in space. Can their defense get our offense off the field? Can they win the field position battle? Can they win in the trenches and sustain it for 4 quarters? Will they withstand the physicality? Can they score repeatedly from 85 yards out without turning the ball over or punting?

I acknowledged that they will be pumped, but when was the last time we laid an egg in a game even on the road under harbaugh aside from that game in BAL when we had 1 day to prep? We played admirably even then. I remember DAL bringing us down to size during the 90s with Young under center with essentially the same teams, so I am not putting it past us to do the same. I think we are underestimated moreso than the Pack. Next Sunday will say much more than I can type on this Mac.

I agree. I didn't mean to diminish the importance of all the different facets in the game. They are all important. I just think that most importantly, it's going to come down to us getting to Rodgers quickly. That Green Bay line is awful, including their left tackle. The Smiths will have him on roller skates. The only problem; Rogers is capable of running around making plays with his feet all day.

Would like to hear a packer fan talk about their oline. Are you confident or worried about it?

I envy your QB............wanna trade???


We won't be playing catch up, and if we do, the 49ers are the kings of 2nd half adjustments under Harbaugh and Co. Buyer Beware if picking the Packers to win

I haven't seen any indication that 9er fans under estimate Rodgers. I expect a rather high-scoring game for the 49ers to win. I just don't see the Niners holding Green Bay to a low point total.
Can't allow Rodgers to extend plays with his feet he can squeeze the ball into very tiny windows.
