The ONE THING Green Bay absolutely could not do on that third down was let Kaepernick get out of the pocket. Terrible lack of situational awareness there.

Frank Gore showed great awareness though; going opposite side and picking off the containment to allow Tattoo man to run outside

Tell ya what dude. You guys had a hell of a time in GB with them playing third and forth string defensive players.

Something that totally sucks about playing in 3 degree weather: Erin Andrews isn’t as close to naked as she usually is.

She looks a little bit like the Michelin Man today. What a downer

I root for home teams first and then for “red state” teams.So my preferences are:

1)Pats
2)Colts
3)Saints
4)Panthers.

Re: The 49er Packer game

I am not a fan of either one, so I didn’t care who really won. Actually I leaned GB because the 49ers play in San Francisco, and San Francisco is .... Well San Francisco

However, the announcers were so in the tank for Green Bay it was beyond annoying (Yes, I get it, at any moment Aaron Rodgers can come back and score really fast, enough already).

So I am kind of happy the 49ers won just to shut them up

Next week the Chargers will beat the Broncos and advance to the conference finals. But the Niners will lose to the Panthers again.

All season to prepare to contain Kapernick and they couldn’t do it. Pathetic defense.

If that occurs I'll root for the Saints or Panthers.If they're not the opponent I won't be watching.

Ha Ha HA! Now whose laughing @ whom? Putting regional pride aside, its amazing what focus and training can do. Both coaches likely said keep your mind on the game and the strategy, nothing else!

Considering how depleted GB was on defense and how hyped SF was on Defense, I would have thought SF would have easily ran away with a large, easy victory. As it was, they wound up having to kick a field goal in the waning seconds to win. If I’m a SF fan, I would be worried, because GB wasn’t nearly as tough as they could have been and this is a team the lowly MN Vikings took to a tie.

Let’s all be real here though, most of the players on these teams aren’t really representing the State they are playing for. They are all a hodge podge collection of athletes playing for the money. The SF squad had a better day in the end, but if you think Rodgers or most of the other Packers are going to be hanging out or living in Wisconsin for the rest of winter, you’ve got another thing coming.

(P.S. I live in Wisconsin, I like the Packers and the Vikings, but they are all temporary residents, when you get down to it.

I agree. I’m glad GB “dropped the ball” on that assignment.

SF barely beat an injury-riddled team that lost it’s star QB mid-season and barely won the division and limped into the playoffs.

GB was 7-2 when Rodgers started, so with him healthy they were still one of the best teams in the NFC.

It wasn’t really frigid here in OH today.

True. In NE Ohio it's been above freezing and raining all day. In Cincy it got into the 40s. Kind of like a cool spring or fall day.

Funny things is, there really is no "cold" field advantage. Anyone who's healthy and tough can work and play in sub-zero weather. People who move here from HOT countries can fit in just fine in the cold weather if they want too.

The Browns got beat by the Raiders in '81 in -5 weather. Fourth coldest game. Same temp as it was in GB today, but the Raiders still hung in there in Cleveland.

Never say, "We know what cold is all about and those guys from California don't." A lot of them DO and those who don't find out it bothers everyone the same way, so it evens out. Just tough it out and know you aren't alone.
