Our offense failed to get a first down at a crucial moment in the game. Special teams failed to give us favorable field position as well. San Fran's defense was clutch when it mattered most to our offense and we couldn't beat them. That could have been a statement. My hope is we grow as a team to the point that when put in this situation again that we rise to the occasion rather than fail. We shall see. I never blame one guy because football is the ultimate team sport.

What an awesome, awesome post! That is exactly the way I feel.

I don't want to pretend we are the best team in the NFL. I want our team to be the best team in the NFL. We lost our stake to that title back in 2011, and it has been eluding us ever since. Just saying we are the best doesn't make it so.

Ross? Get rid of that guy. I mean, really. He sucks. Pure and simple. What has he done to help us win games?

M D Jennings? Why? Why is he in our secondary? Can't we do better?

Those two players alone were big trouble for us in trying to overtake a strong SF team on their home turf. We've got some real proving to do, and some great opportunities to better ourselves and our team in the weeks ahead.

Also, not to be alarmist (too late, I know [laughing] ), as we were a backup S, maybe another DB and a not so good returner away from pulling that game out!

If this is about those stupid "power rankings", they mean less than nothing.

The Niners beat us fair and square - well, almost. That makes them the better team by performance the first week. If the game was 61 minutes, it was ours ..... but give them one more possession after that, and who knows?

Is there anybody else better or even close to either the Niners or Packers? I don't think so.

Saying we are not even close? That's just ridiculous. Would anybody say the Niners were not even close to the top if we had the last possession and beat them?


Agreed - most "ranking" systems go by raw stats - which is deceiving depending on who plays who. A good team playing against a low tier team will usually look amazing on the stat sheets - - However a great team playing against a great team will usually look less impressive in terms of stats.

At the end of they day it is all about what teams can consistently find ways to win - especially in difficult matches. Obviously we fell a little short on this last weekend.

My hope is that this team starts showing up ready to play for 60 minutes, on a regular basis.

But I've been hoping for that for a long time.

There is hopefully some internal pressure going on to remove Ross from his duties. Who takes his place is the problematic question. My deal is that if it is late in the game, take a damn knee, I don't care what you see out there. It ain't going to hold up for you long enough after you have made up your mind to go or stay in.

We are certainly not as consistent as some of the top dogs in the league no question, but I watched all the games through the week, and there were teams that made us look like a contender right now even after a loss like that.

Do I think the Packers are as far away from SF as they were in the playoffs last year? No.

Do I think the Packers can, by the end of the season, be in a position that they are the better team of the two? Yes.

But they have a couple major tasks ahead of them first:

1. OL.
2. Pass defense.

Indeed, IMO they have to fix at least one of those two if they want to get another shot at SF this year.

This is a great point. Many other teams appears as if they looked below the Packers. I know it doesn't mean much as it's only week 1 and each match up is different, but the Packers look pretty good this season. I said right after the loss that the Packers will win a minimum of 10 games, and possibly 11 or 12.

He passed for 300 yards in the last game he had before the GB game and against the superbowl champions no less.


noone ever counts postseason, for whatever reason

1. Total crap shoot. One of the areas of this team that I just don't plan to get my hopes up on. Hate to be the "debbie downer" but with the recent back problems of Sitton, I can only see things getting worse, even if Sitton does play.

2. Could get a lot better. Very hopeful it will. With the return of Burnett (this week) and Hayward a month from now, the Packers secondary should be in a good position to be successful.

All in all, they have a chance. I can't imagine what this team would be like if they had an above average offensive line. Gives me the chills thinking about it.

Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.
