1. We totally biffed this year's draft.

2. We didn't get any player we really wanted.

3. Where can I get some more of those nachos?

4. We made few trades because, in the heat of the moment, we froze.

5. We made a lot of trades to cover the fact that we really had no idea.

8. I blame (A) the general manager (B) the owner (C) the coaching staff (D) the fans (E) all of the above.

9. I dozed through most of the draft.

10. Where can I get some more of those nachos?

    "We only picked Tank Carradine because we loved those old shows with David Carradine in them." "He was the only one who came to interviews without baggy pants hanging down at the knees. That's when we knew we were going to draft him." "We never really talked about the draft until today. We just used Mel Kiper's analysis. Hat's off to Matt Millen for the inside tip."

49ers Notebook: Players prepare for bitter cold; Packers get early prep in; Ryans, McDaniel keep focus on task at hand over job interviews

It's gonna be cold—real cold—when the Green Bay Packers host the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Playoff at Lambeau Field Saturday night (8:15 p.m. ET/5:15 p.m. PT). The current forecast calls for a high of 22 degrees during the day on Saturday with a low of 2 after dark. That's an improvement from the 11-degree high/minus-8 degree low forecast for Lambeau Field tomorrow, but still quite cold nonetheless. Players from both teams talked about what it'll be like to face the cold on Saturday night—one of several topics we'll cover in this edition of 49ers Notebook. Other subjects we'll get into that 49ers Webzone hasn't covered already today include what the Packers did to get a jump start on preparations for the 49ers, how 49ers assistants



'We've got a special group': Watch Kyle Shanahan deliver his post-game speech following 49ers-Cowboys

It was a hard-fought battle, and it wasn't a pretty victory. However, in the playoffs, a win is a win, and the San Francisco 49ers escaped AT&T Stadium, knocking off the Cowboys 23-17. San Francisco led 23-7 heading into the fourth quarter, but miscues kept the home-team Cowboys in the game until the end. It took a bizarre final play, with the help of some poor play-calling from Dallas coach Mike McCarthy, to extend the 49ers' season. After the game, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch went around the locker room, congratulating their players. Then the coach addressed his team. "I'm at a loss for words," Shanahan said. "I'm exhausted, and I didn't even play. I appreciate you guys so much. All the guys that went down in that



49ers-Packers: Kyle Shanahan provides post-game updates on Deebo Samuel, Trent Williams

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after his team's stunning playoff win over the Green Bay Packers—the second in as many weeks. He provided updates on a couple of key players who fought through injuries in the game. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel exited the game after a 12-yard catch in the third quarter. He was tackled by linebacker Krys Barnes, started to make his way to the sideline, and then paused and went down. Samuel eventually made it to the sideline under his own power and even remained in the game. However, he exited again late in the fourth quarter, hopping on one foot to the sideline. Samuel was not able to put weight on his right leg and needed help to reach the bench. Shanahan didn't sound too



'We ain't done yet': 49ers' post-game locker room speech will fire you up

What a night it was for the San Francisco 49ers and their fans. The Bay Area team entered the playoffs as the sixth seed in the NFC. They already knocked off the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys, and on Saturday, eliminated the top-seeded Green Bay Packers in an upset at Lambeau Field. The 49ers special teams unit, often criticized as the team's weakest link, shined. There was a field goal block by safety Jimmie Ward before halftime. Defensive lineman Jordan Willis blocked a punt in the second half, and safety Talanoa Hufanga scooped up the football and returned it for a game-tying touchdown. Then, of course, you have kicker Robbie Gould's game-winning field goal in the closing seconds to punch the 49ers' ticket to the NFC Championship Game. "I
