They didn't beat us by as much as people think in the playoffs last year.

This time, it's at our house. And Kaepernick has come down to earth a bit.

It's gonna be tough, but recall: Our defense made some stops yesterday.

Arizona had almost 500 yards offense yesterday against the 49ers, including 400 yds passing.

Our D isn't as good, but our Offense is better. My biggest concern is we're down so many guys (16 on IR--and that's not including guys like CM3 who are injured and not on IR).

IMO, the biggest concern is can our D stop their running game. If not, our Offense could be on the sideline a lot.

Give Aaron Rodgers another week to shake off the rust, and we'll see.

Ha, me too. I grew up in St. Louis and lived there at the time. That one was painful.

My dad was at the game in his company's box and Missouri senator Kit Bond tried to start a fight with him. Kit was giving him shit all game so my dad responded that it was really great that the St. Louis Rams as an organization poured forth their support and resources to make sure a murderer stayed on the street (Leonard Little); that most organizations wouldn't have the conviction or the loyalty to do the same. Well Kit Bond liked dealing shit but couldn't take any thrown back his way so he just lost it and started flailing wildly at my dad and had to be restrained.

Worried about our defense stepping up in this game especially the linebackers. We will have to lock down Crabtree and Boldin. This is VERY hard for even a good defense. They will test our line backers and nickel defense big time on the inside. Time of possession will be as big of an emphasis as it was in the Bears and when we get in the red zone we HAVE to score touchdowns or we definitely won't stand a chance.

If the players execute properly, that will make a HUGE difference. Not making the tackle, or being out of your position has cost the Pack many times this year.

I actually think we have a good chance to make a run. First up is SF and they struggled with the Cards and Falcons in their last 2 games. Seattle isn't as unbeatable as the media makes them out to be, they got beat by the Cards and remember when the Bucs had them down 21 at the half in Seattle. Carolina is the team that worries me the most, they pretty much shut Brees down the best you can twice this year and they are a physical team. But then again their offense isn't alot to be scared of.


I like our chances this week if Lacy is healthy. Cobb will be the x factor

I completely agree. However, tough as Carolina is, I think they choke/stumble against the Saints. It's tough to beat a team 3 times.

Question: if the Packers beat S.F. and Seattle, and then play New Orleans in the NFC finals, do we, a division champion, get home field? Or them with a better record?

Higher seed gets home field thus we are at home to SF

I don't see the Saints getting past the Eagles

Near impossible when you are 1-1 against said team and have at most 1 more game against them.

Also, if the Saints win next week they will go to Seattle and the winner of the Packers/Niners game would go to Carolina.

The Week 1 meeting in San Francisco...

Colin Kaepernick threw for over 400 yards and 3 TD's
Anquan Boldin caught 13 passes out of the 17 and had 208 yards receiving.
Vernon Davis had 6 receptions and 2 TD's

Both those guys had their season high's in Week 1. Kaepernick only topped 300 yards passing one other time. Boldin only topped 100 yards one other time.

Eddie Lacy ran the ball 14 times for 41 yards for 2.9 per carry and 1 TD.


That being said, with 8 minutes left in the game, the Packers had the lead 28 - 24.

Referee Bill Leavy once apologized for blowing several calls in Super Bowl XL that may have cost the Seahawks a chance to win a championship. On Sunday in San Francisco, Leavy and his crew bungled a call in the second quarter that gave the 49ers an extra down against the Packers. A play later, the 49ers scored a touchdown, and went on to win 34-28.

On Monday, the league downgraded Leavy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, who adds that "NFL officials are judged and graded every week, and are often downgraded for issues. In the end, egregious mistakes can draw fines or cost officials assignments in the playoffs or Super Bowl."

Leavy's mistake on Sunday? After flagging Packers linebacker Clay Matthews for a late hit on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Leavy also penalized 49ers tackle Joe Staley for unsportsmanlike conduct. (The league ruled Monday that Staley shouldn't have been flagged.) The penalties offset, but because it was a dead-ball foul, the down should have counted. Which meant that it should have been 4th-and-2 from the Packers' 6-yard line. Instead, the 49ers replayed third down and Kaepernick promptly threw a touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin.

After the game, Leavy admitted he had messed up.

"On the play where the quarterback [QB Colin Kaepernick] went out of bounds and was hit late out of bounds, and then there was a subsequent hit by a San Francisco player. the down should have counted," he said. "The penalties were both dead ball, and they should have offset at the spot where the runner went out of bounds. And it would have been fourth down."

It's the second time in two years that the Packers have been on the wrong end of an official's gaffe. Silver lining: At least it wasn't the Super Bowl.


Bill Leavy is also the official who botched the Chiefs Chargers FG which eliminated the Steelers from playoffs.

We have the better QB. The D has to make sure Kapernick doesn't put up numbers that would make him as good as ARod on that day.

Arod is going to play his ass off and after almost two months off isn't going to want to go home now. If he had been around all year these two teams would have very similar records.

SF has a good D but they have also not played a lot of teams that can pass and run the ball as well as we do.

So I think both D's are going to be equally challenged. I think SF will have a hard time with Arod and our offense and their offense is inconsistent right along with our defense.

Biggest differences from week 1:
No Clay Matthews
No Jerron McMillian
No Finley (even though he cost us an INT week 1 and Quarless has stepped up)
More reliable KR/PR (Ross was responsible for at least 2 huge negative plays vs 49ers)
OL has been better than they were at beginning of season (specifically Bakhtiari)
DL has been worse than they were
49ers have Crabtree back
Game is in Lambeau this time

I really don't think the cold weather will affect the 49'ers much at all. It's not like the Bay area is the Central Valley of CA or anything. It's not very warm there, either, even if it's no Green Bay. Moreover, the 49'ers are basically built to play well in the cold. They have a crushing rushing attack and an incredibly mobile QB, and they have a punishing defense. If any wind, rain, or snow affect the 49'ers passing game, it will likely affect the Packers passing game as well. I think the 49'ers offense would function better than the Packers offense if the weather significantly affects the passing game, just because they have a better offensive line and a more mobile QB; and most importantly, the Packers defense would be easier to move the ball against than the 49'ers.

I really don't see weather bringing any significant advantage to the Packers in this game. Perhaps if they were playing the Chargers or Saints, but not the 49'ers.
