I picked Seattle a few weeks ago, thinking I was pretty much alone, now they’ve become the “sexy” pick.

He's such a wonderful young man, too.
Read about him here.

As a fourth grader, Kaepernick wrote himself a letter predicting that he will be 6 feet 4 and "then go to the pros and play on the Niners or Packers even if they aren't good in seven years."

Exactly. I just hope the players tomorrow don’t go into this thinking it’s in the bag. Remember the old adage, “On Any Sunday”....

Funny how Rodgers grew up wanting to play for the Niners, and Kaepernick wanted to be a Packer.

Brees was considered too short to be a good pocket quarterback in the NFL.

SF's going to have to have a much better game plan to beat Seattle than they did here against GB. All this broken-pass-play, QB scrambling for 181 yards against GB's lousy rush defense isn't going to work against Seattle's tough defense.

SF has a less-than-medicore passing offense, but the 5th best rush offense in the NFL. To beat Seattle, they must mostly run and have a ball-control offense, which in turn can open up the passing game (especially short passes). These stupid hail-Mary, on-a-wing-and-a-prayer pass plays and throws into double coverage will kill SF.

I saw both the Packers/49ers and Ravens/Broncos games today. Some of the most exciting damn football I’ve seen in a long long time!

They may be the sexy pick for women and gay men, but the typical male football fan likely doesn't care how sexy a team is.

Just damn good football in both games. I guess it was Underdog Saturday since both underdogs won.

Yep, both damn' good games however I didn't know the 49'ers were the underdogs vs. the Packers.

They damn' sure didn't play like underdogs! As a Green Bay Packers fan, hat's off to the San Francisco 49'ers. Great team. Packers were completely outmatched in this one and it's going to be fun watching the 49'ers going forward.

BRILLIANT MOVE by Jim Harbaugh (former Chicago Bears QB) in going with Kaepernick earlier in the season. Kaepernick's got alot of talent and he's only starting to mature.

Best of luck rest of the playoff's.

Then Gore will run for 200 yards against them....

SF and Seattle would be a great rematch for the NFC championship. But I’m sure Atlanta will have something to say about that. We’ll see. I’m sure SF is rooting for Atlanta.

Kaepernick made Rodgers look like a doddering old man. Rodgers and the receivers just couldn’t get in sync tonight.

Packers need some major overhauling.

1) Get rid of McCarthy and Capers.
2) Get rid of Donald Driver. He did nothing but stand on the sidelines this season. His time is long gone.
3) Get rid of Charles Woodson. His time is long gone.
4) Get rid of John Kuhn. He hasn’t done anything since 2010.
5) Get rid of BJ Raji. Hasn’t done anything since 2010.
6) Get rid of “Hands of Stone” Jermichael Finley. Nothing but an overrated loudmouth.
7) Get rid of Greg Jennings. His best days are gone, and he’s becoming a team disruptor like Finley.

The Falcons are just like the Braves, perennial post-season failures.

I spent years watching the Braves be the worst team in baseball, and let me tell you...enjoying 14 straight years of being in a pennant race and capturing the Division gave me so much great baseball and hometown cheer, I couldn't care less if they took the series or not.

Same way with the Falcons...maybe even more so since before Mike Smith took the reins, they went 40 years without even having back-to-back winning seasons.

I'll take 13-3 and one and done every season.

I'll bet Buffalo Bills fans really wish they could see their team losing all those playoff games again.

Falcons definitely have the talent. All depends on Matt Ryan being on top of his game.

lol...I can’t stand Nate Silver, but hope he is right on this one!! Seahawks certainly are an exciting team this year, and anything can happen. If they get a lead early tomorrow, it will be lights out for the Falcons.

Watch Kaepernick fold like a house of cards if the defense figures out they have to rush him on every play. GB seldom blitzed him and paid the price.

That is correct, RW1 is indeed 5-10. That makes him hard to see by defensive secondary. They don’t see him until he has scampered past them lol

Bobby Douglass, who played for the Bears in the early 1970s, was a big strong kid who did a lot of running. Ran for close to 1,000 yards one year (in a 14-game season).

Big difference, because the Bears went nowhere while Bobby Douglas played for them. The joke was that Douglas was discharged from the National Guard unit he belonged to because he always ran with a hand-grenade instead of throwing it, but that was never confirmed.

The 9ers have been blown out a few times since CK started. Defense was an issue for GB all season. They needed a perfect game from Rodgers and a victory in turnover margin to win. I see the Falcons soming out if this in the NFC

LOL What a great game. But I think calling a time out a split second before a kicker kicks is just plain wrong. It is what it is though. Best of luck to Your Birds for the rest of the playoffs my friend.

I was kind of hoping that they would have ruled that the fumble occurred before Lynch crossed the plane, and allow Seattle to take a little more time off the clock.
