So thats 0-9 cbs, 3-11 espn, 0-3 nfln playbook, 0-1 with bruschi = 3-24... they werent much better on the other games. I think it was 25 wrong 0 write for the cowboys game

and they were all dang near wrong on the lions and eagles games. Why do they bother... it's no different than an average fan going down the list and picking the favorites.


Why wouldn't they have picked Green Bay? In the entire year of 2011, the Green Bay Packers trailed in a game for a total of 2 min. They were 15-1, and averaged 40 points at home.

You have to realize just how unbelievably epic this game actually was. This was the hardest game of the year by far and we almost made it look easy for a while there.

I agree. Green Bay was definitely the favorite in this game no matter how well we matched up. Analysists, for the most part, go with the favorite. Occasionally, they'll be homer and pick "their" team or think they found a sleeper team for the week.

Then again, don't be disappointed. Harbaugh and co like flying under the radar. I hope they all pick Detroit next week too.


No way. Not after what we just did. Everybody is picking us next week. We just did the amazing. There is nothing amazing about winning at home against a lesser opponent.

I don't necessarily agree... Aside from playing in Green Bay, I thought we had the upper hand on paper. Out of 11 defenders, only 3 are playmakers. They still don't matchup with our offense. Our defense no doubt looked liked they matched up quite nicely with their offense on paper. There was no way they could block our front seven which let our secondary clamp down and basically nullify Aaron Rodgers' play style.

I thought we had a better chance than what the pundits were saying as well. Thing is, they only think of Green Bay going 15-1 last year, and us going 13-3 on a "weak" schedule because we play in the NFC West.

No way do I agree with the pundits, but I do understand their "picks". Hopefully I said that right.
We just gave the rest of the NFL a blue print to contain Rodgers and his offense. Actually I think the Giants might have put out the blueprint, we just executed it really, really, good.

Edit: No we didn't take the Giants' blueprint. We took the blueprint against the Saints and put one more guy in coverage.

That team we just beat not only won every game at home last year, but they were never even behind in a game, except for two minutes of game time. That is mind blowing.

When they played the Giants in the playoffs, the temperature was epic freezing. That changes the game. Their receivers dropped a record number of passes. We didn't need that to beat them. They had good weather, their receivers dropped only a couple passes, and yet we pulled ahead in the game by three scores at one point.

If I wasn't a 49er fan and didn't understand the game, I might make the same pick, but these guys are supposedly "experts." Maybe Goodell's onto something with the concussion stuff...

Was was the Giants blueprint? Crossing their fingers hoping that Green Bay's receivers drop a record number of passes? Hope the weather drops well beyond freezing?

We beat them when they had absolutely no excuse for themselves.

Hells yeah we did!

They were outcoached and outplayed in every facet of the game. McCarthy deserves to be beat that bad. I have a strong feeling he was tampered with before the '05 draft.

Rest assured if he was tampered with it would of come to light. Crazy theories based on absolutely nothing rock though
I am not disappointed and don't worry about what the media or experts think. I just was pointing it out because someone mentioned bruschi saying we would get killed. I follow this team enough that I don't need the media's opinion. Maybe when I was a little kid and there was no internet to follow the team. Now that you can follow your team daily I don't need an experts opinion when they hardly study the team. The pre and post game shows, analysis, espn, nfln, broadcasters are pretty much catered to the casual fan who doesn't know anything about the game. Not saying avid fans can't learn stuff from them but most of the time they will tell you something you already know or other times give you general stereotypes. I am sure a lot of you feel the same way about the media.

Edit: Did anyone see Clark Haggans on the field today? We played so much nickel, dime, quarter and dollar defense I'm thinking the only OLB that saw the field were Ahmad and Aldon.

I'll be the first to admit it's a conspiracy theory. But doesn't it seem odd he Drafts Alex over Rodgers, has a horrible year with Smith and gets offered the HC job with Rodgers? That's not much to go on, but it just doesn't seem right. And I'm sure there are plenty of tampering cases that go unnoticed/uninvestigated in the NFL.

Here's another one to laugh at:

"The 49ers knew the Packers couldn't run worth anything — like, "Cedric Benson, get the ball and fall down." Because the Packers couldn't run, the Niners committed football heresy. They often took Patrick Willis out of the game — Patrick Freaking Willis? — so they could beef up their pass coverage. They played their dime package, six defensive backs. And that meant the field was clogged with DBs, and that blew Rodgers' mind."
