Jim Harbaugh is a dumb dick.....That is all!

GO PACK GO. Should be a better game than the first. The Pack D seems to fair better against mobile QBs that aren't as accurate, rather than super accurate pocket passers. Their offense needs to wake up a little though.

Kaepernick gives them the best chance to make one critical mistake that could win it for the Packers.

Too many tats to be a pure QB in the NFL.
 
2013-01-08 10:18:44 AM
The Packers will need both Matthews and Woodson to play the entire game without getting injured if they want to stand a chance at stopping the 49ers offense with Kaepernick at quarterback. Those seem to be the only two players on the Pack's defense who don't over pursue, and the rest of the D stays in their lanes when those two are on the field.

On the offensive side, the Packers will need to actually give Rodgers some time to throw the ball and Rodgers himself better get rid of the f*cking ball more quickly than he has of late.

It will be close--I'm thinking 20-13.

Hoping for 28-10.

GO PACKERS!

Walden looked pretty good, and after two weeks of practice I think the D as a whole are better at it. Then again Gore is a completely different runner than Peterson. Granted Raji has been fantastic at penetration and control over the last 2 weeks.

What Harbaugh did to Alex Smith was a dick move and it would be great karma for it to blow up in his face. On the other hand, Kaepernick is just a kid taking advantage of an opportunity that was handed to him. I'd kind of hate to see the blame for a loss fall even partially on to him.

Unless Kaepernick goes out and throws three interceptions, if the 49ers lose this weekend it will likely be because of Justin Smith's torn tricep keeping him from being a threat. It was kind of shocking seeing how much of a lynchpin that guy was to the entire defense: o-lines had to key on him, freeing up Aldon Smith to rush, in turn throwing off QBs' timings... they were downright mortal without him*.

I'll buy that.

If the Packers win it would be kind of cool if the kid still has a decent day.

But if a Packers win hinges on him to become rattled and have a terrible day, then so be it.

Speaking of 49ers coaches, the Bears apparently (in their endless interviews of coaching candidates -- the list is easily in double digits now) are going to interview Mike Singletary. Which, please god no. Cannot win with him. Can't do it.

Because he comes off as a swarmy dickhead. Also, his face always looks like he is in mid-diarreha crap.

I also dislike how he used the potato refs to score himself 4 touchdowns and to pick up a challenge flag with no penalty against Minnesota.

That thing with Schwartz was also pretty douchey for both of those guys as well.
 
2013-01-08 11:44:18 AM
As a Seattle fan, I would be fine with them playing the Packers or the 49ers in the Championship game if they get by Atlanta. I'd like to see them beat the Pack if only to stop the cries of the Hail Mary, or it would be equally delicious to see Harbaugh's head explode to lose two home NFC Championship games in a row.

That said, Seattle showed how to beat the 49ers. If you get them down early, they lose their physicality on offense immediately, and they have no WRs to speak of that are frightening. Kaepernick was also very much a deer in the headlights when he fell behind and knew the game was falling on him. The Pack will need to go up by two TDs very fast and force the 49ers to play catchup.

/if this happens, expect Harbaugh to put Smith in at the half
//and then blame him for losing the game

I thought they've gotten better as a core(ps?) of receivers though. Davis, Crabtree, Manningham (is he injured?), ...Moss.

Moss isn't much of anything, Davis has been virtually silent all year (maybe due to QB issues or offensive planning to try to target their WRs more, dunno), and I'm pretty sure Manningham is out (injured in the Seahawks game).

I heard on the radio that the league is already grumbling about how the Bears are obviously interviewing as many people as possible as a means of gathering information about other teams and getting reads on other coaches. I can't believe that kind of information gathering is happening with the friggin' Bears.

I don't think Samurai Mike gets another head coach gig anywhere ever again. I could see him getting a LB Coach position, but he's just completely lost as head coach.

Manningham is indeed on the IR.

Davis has, at least according to his own statements, largely been getting double-teamed like a {insert preferred imagery here}. He's been a little frustrated by it, but it's also been good for Crabtree and Delanie Walker who are having great years (when Walker isn't dropping wide-open TD passes, at least and forcing the team to settle for a [missed] field goal).

The most recent quote from Davis was basically "we watch tape on these teams, but they don't treat me like they treat other TE's". Which should really lead to the 49ers' OC doing something about it by now, but... *shrug*

Oh man, that would be epic, Mike Singletary and Jay Cutler working together. C'mon Chicago, you can do this!!

If Kaepernick does well, the Pack is in trouble. Under 5 sacks on Rodgers, i think the Packers win, over 28 points for GB, I think the Packers win. If I were betting, I would take the over and the under, respectively.

When the Pack lost to the Vikings, I took a look at the play off scenario. It would be fun and interesting if they beat the teams that beat them during the regular season (Vikings, 49ers, Seahawks). Too bad they couldn't face the Colts in the Superbowl to avenge that loss, too.

I think its the contrast between him and his brother. Jon's a nice enough guy, as I understand.

Yep, the 49ers have a pretty weak WR corps. Sure, Crabtree is good, but he tends to completely disappear in games. Randy Moss? Did anyone think a 35-year-old Randy Moss wouldn't take plays off? Manningham's on IR, Delanie Walker can't catch half of what's thrown his way, and Vernon Davis completely disappears as well, sometimes because the team has worked hard to take him out, other times just because they've not designed a good play for him.

Vernon Davis had an iffy regular season last year and then went crazy in the playoffs. I'm hoping for a repeat performance because losing Manningham really killed the receiving corps.

this was somewhat true last year, but not true at all this year. First Niners' WR with over 1000 receiving yards in a decade.

gonna be a very fun, interesting game on Saturday. If Kaep can play well and keep control of the play clock, and Justin Smith returns to even half-form, the Pack are in trouble.

It probably won't. Akers has had a big-time case of the yips as of late. And Cundiff? Well, it's bad if your name is an Urban Dictionary entry. To paraphrase:

"Cundiff (noun) - To botch a seemingly mundane and routine task (i.e. a 32-yard field goal)."

Like most 49ers fans, you don't appear to have the ability to read more than a few words at a time. It's okay. Take a break for a couple of days and then come back.

You're mistaking me for a Raiders fan. Since Oakland's right across the San Francisco Bay, that's an easy mistake for a non-Californian to make. I'll forgive you for that. But your defense didn't have to do anything other than go into "defense the pass" mode once your offense spotted them a four-touchdown lead. I'll admit the 49ers defense really shiat the bed that game. Like epically shiat the bed. I'll tip my hat at you guys running a very good offensive game that night.

As for Colin Kaepernick, the crowd noise exacerbated the time management problems that have been dogging the 49ers all season long. It's not like the 49ers weren't moving the ball. Two red zone opportunities were squandered - an ill-advised pass to Vernon Davis and a fluke botched FG that was returned for a TD. Like I said before, it's easy to defend a team that's one-dimensional. What you said is true for about any team, except for maybe the Patriots.

All that said, I'll be rooting for the Seahawks this weekend, if nothing more than because the idea of Atlanta choking in the playoffs for a third straight year amuses me. Maybe our teams will meet in the rubber match for all the marbles.
