my gut feeling is that we lose a close game. We have too many unknowns for me to be confident.
Whats are kicking game going to be like? Can we trust Akers or Cundiff?
How effective is Justin Smith going to be?
Can Aldon generate pass rush if Justin isnt there to help?
How is Kaepernick going to react to the playoff atmosphere?
I have to agree with VR33. I think the 49ers lose this game Packers 34 49ers 28
As 49ers fans, we know more about our teams weaknesses than opposing teams weaknesses. GB has a patchwork of a offensive line even a 49ers dline without JSmith will be able to exploit. GB's receivers are banged up outside of Cobb. Woodson is still not playing at full strength and GB's defensive front will be overpowered on the edges. I urge you guys to re-watch the last Cardinals game and take a look at how the team played starting in the 2nd quarter of that game. Once they felt they needed to turn it on, they went on a 24-0 run in 1.5 quarters and essentially ended the game. Aldon was forcing their QB to throw quick outs, RJF had a better push, etc.. Alex came into relief Kap midway through the 4th quarter and that was one of the few games this year the backup came in to close out the game. It seems the game against Seattle really killed confidence in a lot of people, but I'm sure come Saturday we'll see a great effort against GB.
