SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS GREEN BAY PACKERS GAMEDAY THREAD (Week 1)

All that smack talk about shutting Kap down...right. Matthews did make some good plays, but in the end, they couldn't stop CK. He and Boldin were unstoppable...I'll bet the Ravens are eating their hearts out right about now. Unbelievable game...Pack's defense was markedly better than last year...Rodgers is one of the greatest QB's in the game. After this performance, Rodney Harrison hit it on the head when he said Kap's "the real deal". It's hard to fathom what his ceiling might really be...what ever it is, it'll be out of sight. This was clearly the best game of the day...two gunslingers dueling it out. Can't get any better than that. What a way to start the season...woof!!

I hope the O-line gets enough credit for their pass protection. I know the running game was shut down but I believe that had more to do with play design than line play. For most of those 400 yards Kap had all day in the pocket.

O-line gave Kaepernick all day to throw against the Packers. Tremendous job as it appears GB sold out to stop the read-option. Next week against Seattle I'm not expecting near that much time to throw.

One thing that I'm not sure of after week 1 was Gore. Maybe it's just me searching for negatives, but Gore looked like he's lost a step.

Yeah, many left-side sweeps he made where he just ran into bodies, 4-years younger Gore would have reversed.

I don't think so.

I think the Pack was expecting us to run it down their throats so they pretty much loaded the line. The O-line not creating the lanes didn't help much either.

The only time the rush worked was when we ran it to the outside.
Boldin is slow but it just doesn't freakin' matter
I tried to create a thread to congratulate you guys...It wouldnt let me. But great game. I think we probably played you better than you thought but the better team today came out on top. I can say i am honestly not afraid of you guys, but you certainly have our number for the time being. Boldin was Crabtree today and I honestly wasnt expecting that. Either way, you guys played a great game and congrats on the win.
Let me add that the Clay play was dirty and I dont condone that at all.
What did you guys think of our LT outside of the 1st play which was pretty absurd!!!

I thought he held up very well. Good feet and stronger than I thought. Gave up some pressure, but for a 4th rd rookie making his first start against the Smith bros, he looked like he can handle it.

Pretty much was a holder throughout the entire game.
Before I forget, kudos to Harbaugh for going for it on 4th down. If we punt, I think GB gets a FG and ties, if not take the lead. Huge call that allowed us to kill the clock and add points.

I agree with this over the post below. Maybe its the homer in me, but I thought he did pretty well against the best duo he would face all season.

i think he was ok, but Rogers was quick with his decisions and maneuvered around a lot.

he should be ok this season and become better as the weeks progress

Your OL played very well. Great job at stopping our run. If we had Alex, I don't think he throws some of hose jump balls to Boldin. Wouldn't be surprised to see you guys again in the NFCC. I think you are Better than SEA.
