I'm going to be realistic and admit that I am worried about the Packers. They will be gunning for us this season after we dismantled them twice last season. Don't forget that they still have Aaron Rodgers as QB and he will always keep them in the game. No two seasons are alike, so for people to say the result will be the same as last year is just plain silly. So many things change...Kaep can slump/kaep can be even better/49ers defense falls off/injuries/Packers get better/Packers D gets better. Just because they didn't do much to bolster their defense this year, it still can get better. Crazy sh*t happens in the NFL all the time.
You could say the same thing about them starting in '95, dismantling us year after year after year.
Our only break was a non call on Rice's fumble and a miracle catch by T.O.
Think about that for a second.
Roles are reversed. No sympathy for them.
Don't forget the Giants smashed them this year despite an off year. The Seahawks should have beat them decisively if Russell wasn't so green.
Green Bay needs one of two things to be legit:
a) Much stronger defense
b) Much stronger running game
