Packers lost to Falcons during the regular season in 2010 and squeaked out a win in the Divisional playoff game against them.

48-21 domination of them. One of my fondest playoff memories ever.

I understand it's good press and people love hearing about young athletic QB's that have all kinds of talent but the reality of it is they don't go to or win SB's. They just don't.

When it gets down to the real deal it's the Brees',Rothlisbergers', Brady's, Mannings', Rodgers' traditional pocket guys with ice in their vains that goes and wins the big show.

I watch ESPN and hear all this about Kaepinick who has yet to play or win a playoff game and yes they brush over the player Rodgers is but his playoff numbers are completely insane.

I hope Arod is doing a slow burn leading up to Saturday and he makes guys like Cosell eat his words. So he holds to ball to long sometimes. He also makes plays only guys like Big Ben can make and last I noticed he wears a lot of glitter on those fingers.

Along with a lot of other QB's that have no idea what running a 4.5 forty feels like.

I still have that game on my DVR. That's the best I've ever seen the Rodger's led Packers ever play.

Yeah, I don't get the fascination with running quarterbacks either. Not one of them has ever one a Super Bowl or even sniffed one.

The sacks Rodgers takes is out of necessity for the amount of throwing he does. That sack is certainly better than all the picks that Favre threw. I'd rather lose 7 yards than a turnover. We couldn't have asked for a better quarterback than Rodgers, and there isn't a team in the league that wouldn't give their left nut for him.

I really don't think we are as soft as we were in game 1, so anybody thinking San Francisco is going to man handle us again is in for a rude awakening.


absolutely. I was glad to get his nervous bobble out of the way this past week. I don't think he will do that again.

When it's 2nd round playoff time teams are usually pretty even. Look to the better QB to be the difference.

The 49'r pass rush is always sited yet the Packers have 9 more sacks and that was with CM3 out a month.

The lack of a balanced offense is often sited as a shortcoming for the Packers yet they are one of only four teams that average over 250 ypg passing and 100 ypg rushing. Two of the other three are NE and Denver. The tops seeds over in the AFC.

Finally, the Packers have now seen what the 49r's will do defensively over and over and you can see how McCarthy has adapted with Harris and the offense. The offense is now comfortable with what they have to do to be more effective when the defense has taken away the big play opportunites.

That and the fact we had four or five players in their first pro game in there defensively at any one time that first go around and what was Bush doing in there anyhow?. They are much more ready for this now.



nice summary. talking heads tend to grind on and regurgitate the same old stories without looking at the facts and see what has changed.

I can think of two:

Fran Tarkenton
Steve Young
Edit... Three.. Randall Cunningham.. he just happened to play with the choking Vikes.


But I agree with the premise.. just pointing out the generalization is invalid.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Didn't Steve Young benefit from a loaded defense just as responsible for the championship as he was?

As for Tarkenton and Cunningham, you're kidding right?

They didn't win one... but they definitely were sniffing.

ya - watched that seattle/wash game last nite and I saw was - 2 decent defenses vs 2 ok QBS but great runners ... sadly rg3 got injured - was a cool game if you guys didnt watch it. The 1st quarter is looked like a blowout was about to happen.

as far as the pack vs the niners - if justin smith is injured and davis and manningham are out injured (btw how is davis?) - I dont think they will do that well vs us. The niners havnt looked that good of late.


Im not convinced on duan harris (spelling) - but it appears that's all we got. btw if the pack and seattle win do we play at home? or do we have to go to that ugly seattle field?

IMO I think this game will be be quite the lopside 34-10 pack.

Hello all!

It's been a while, my apologies.

The first quarter and a half will shape the game I feel. Yes, both teams are capable of making on the fly adjustments but I feel, by about 20 minutes of on-field play, we will have a good feel of how successful we are to be in beating/stopping them.

If it is Seattle and GB, it will be a home game.

welcome back VLS.

If I find a great design by somebody (I think Shawn will deliver it in some style) I WILL get the Packers Home Logo (minus the gay Est.)
