As long as we are all ranting at least let me say that I have been asking for a top safety in the draft for 2 years now. I wanted Harrison Smith (you can check the archives) and I wanted one this year. I was told because we didn't address the need in the draft it is because they didn't see it as a problem. Well guess what they were completely wrong twice. Our safeties need help big time. We may never find another Nick Collins, but we cannot go from his level of talent to what we have now and expect another Super Bowl.


I get the point, but the safety play will improve with Burnett back there. A team missing their best safety will always leave something to be desired.

The other safety position could still be improved, but hopefully McMillian can develop into that role one Burnett is back. I have no faith in Jennings though, and wish we had better depth there. To be fair though, it's always a trade off. Had the Packers possibly upgraded the safety position, it could leave another position thin, such as OLB or DL. Jolly is certainly helping with the defensive line issues, but no one could truly expect that. The jury is still out on Nick Perry, but without him, the Packers would be in even worse shape. At least he played decent against the run and contained the outside fairly well against the 49'ers.

Based on these numbers, add the two sacks (I counted 3, but I guess they called it a tuck and run for a loss), there were 41 drop backs, of which there were 7 pressures and 2 sacks. So, Kaepernick was under pressure 22% of his pass plays, instead of the 0% (all day) many have intimated.


My bigger point is much more comprehensive. Very few conclusions can be drawn off of one game, especially Week 1. The 49'ers offensive line is unquestionably better in my opinion, and Aaron Rodgers has basically never had a very good one. There's a reason he was the most sacked QB last season. True, some of those are his fault, but a lot of the success the Packers have had is attributable to those same qualities that Rodgers has that leads to some sacks. I would trade offensive lines in a heart beat with the 49'er's if I could. You seem to be very interested in drilling down to the details of a single game. That's fine, but it ultimately doesn't mean much, and no definitive conclusions can be drawn. Conclusions can't even be drawn from Kapernick's entire sample size, to date, but it's much better than a single game.

As far as I'm concerned, it's a fact that Aaron Rodgers is very often under very quick pressure, more so than most quarterbacks in the NFL, especially the good teams, and definitely more than Kaepernick. It seems to be even worse in critical situations. Many of the organizations moves reflect that sentiment too. Aaron Rodgers could be much more effective if he had a better offensive line, such as what Tom Brady has enjoyed for much of his career.

Also, I'm confident that Rodgers would play much better against the Packers defense than he would against the 49'ers, despite any knowledge of the schemes. If Rodgers could play behind the 49'ers offensive line AND against the Packers defense, I would be betting some cash on the outcome of that game, and I don't think I need to explain why. Ultimately, this is why direct comparisons are futile and somewhat silly, although they do seem to sell and draw ratings, so the talking heads love it. It's very fair to compare teams, and the 49'ers are a much better team than the Packers from top to bottom, imo. I think if both teams played their best ball, the 49'ers would win the majority of the games, probably something like 70-80%. However, things change fast so that statement could change within a season or so.

Someone said it before and I am too lazy to go back and find out who (sorry) but I think a major difference between Rodgers and Kaepernick in this game were Boldin and to a lesser extent Davis. These guys were wide open all game long and when you have wide open receivers it is going to be much easier to throw the ball. I don't recall seeing any Packers receivers as wide open as regularly as these two guys were. I guess that means our secondary made CK look better than he may be.

Going into the game I was convinced that CK was a runner that would be and average QB if this was taken away from him. I have changed my mind a bit on that. I'd still like him to show what he can do against a team that doesn't leave guys wide open all the time.

The stats for Rodgers and Kaepernick were not that much different. If it weren't for the INT, which wasn't Rodgers fault, I'd dare say they were pretty much equal. The 49ers outplayed us in pretty much every other aspect of play and that is why we lost. This game was not won or lost by either team based on the play of the QBs.

Well, first, I'm not looking to draw any difinitive conclusions from a single game, but the thread was discussing that game last played. I've seen enough of Kaepernick to believe he is the real deal. Maybe not a better pure passer than Rodgers, but pretty close, and better on the run.

Second, Rodgers and Keaepernick both made some pretty quick throws. Would I take their OL? Probably. But, ours actually played pretty well. Something not many here wanted to admit, that he had a clean pocket to throw from 77% of the game.

Great post sschind. Yes, our S play was severely lacking, and I agree that is what lost this game for us.

Well, now what is that? Seems like you are just pissed that Rodgers wasn't actually running for his life like you and steveishere had intimated.

Whatever.

I think our OL played very well, against one of the top defensive fronts in the NFL. I believe they deserve a chance to gel as a unit before completely writing them off. Against that D they gave Rodgers a clean pocket to throw from 77% of the time.

Yeah, I guess I don't know anything DoddPower. It was nothing personal, but I just did not agree that Kaepernick had all day, and Rodgers was under constant pressure. Both statements were wrong.

My only comment on Rodgers in this thread was that Kaepernick had cleaner pockets and not once did I say or "intimate" he was "running for his life" so once again you are completely full of shit. Seriously you just can't argue with something a person actually said you have to sensationalize it into something else.

What you do would be like me saying that you are trying to argue that Kaepernick is a 10x better qb than Rodgers is and then calling you an idiot for thinking that. It's ridiculous.

Food for thought. Aaron Rodgers won more games in 2011 than Colin Kaepernick has started in his career.

You make a lot of valid points, Dodd. Just the same, I still have to disagree about the Niners winning the majority, etc.

Sunday's game was certainly within range of a win for the Packers. And that was with the rare freaky miscues on offense (I bet Lacy never gets victimized that way again), with the officials' screwup, with Kaepernick arguably playing over his head - based on the games he has played with everybody but the Packers, with Burnett and Hayward out, and with the O Line that, well, let's say has to improve cuz it can't get any worse.

With all of that, one minute more on the clock and we undoubtedly would have pulled it out.

Colin K played WAY over his head, no question about it. And for fans wanting to face the 49ers again, I will say it like I said after the first of the last three times they beat the Packers. You're nuts. 49ers are the Cowboys of the 90's, skip over them if ya can.

Some mention no Burnett or Hayward, well, consider they will have their #1 WR next time the Packers might face them.

I would rather let them have Crabtree back if it meant us having Burnett and Hayward. There was just too big of a drop off with those 2 out to their replacements.

True - at most, Crabtree would cut into the catches Bolden got. I think Hayward might be the kind of DB to handle Bolden a lot better, and Burnett probably would cover center field a lot better than Jennings/McMillian. For that matter, most days I think Jennings/McMillian would do the job better.

Z2C, I'm not saying "bring 'em on" like I'm anxious to play the Niners again. It really is between them and us as to who is the best in the NFL. I'm just saying I think it's US by at least a small margin.

I DO, however, want to see us play them in the NFC final - preferably at Lambeau.
