I am very excited to see the evil genius in Roman to game plan for this one. He knows the Pack has been working on shutting down the read option all offseason. What new wrinkles will he use with McDonald/Vernon combo? Hunter is back and didn't play in the playoffs. I expect Kap to have a big day passing the ball. What a way to start the season!! Can't wait.....
I'm most excited to see how the Packers contain the Niners pressure. They simply can't do it with a 5 man line. They can't even do it with 11 personnel. I expect them to run a lot of 12 personnel with Finley as a passing threat. That wont work though because Willis or Bowman can easily man him. Not to mention Whitner and Reid can move into the box to cover while we man the WR. Jennings and Driver are gone and Nelson is out so it wont be hard to press their WRs. This is going to be a blow out.

Packers will not be able to run the ball against the Niners D because they have a suspect offensive line. Then the Niners D will be free to rush the passer and they notched 17 sacks in four preseason games. Add that the Niners will be playing their offensive 1's against a team they hammered for almost 600 yds in the playoffs last year and I smell a victory in our home opener.
