Just the simple fact that you 49er fans and players are even talking about the weather just goes to show it's going to affect you. Also, you all believe the Packers are a push over, and you think you're going to win. All I can say to that is, don't be so sure. Rodgers and the Packers are a whole different beast now.

You have no defense so yeah, unlike last year when Kaep was seen out-running Hawke and Matthews now it will seem like he's doing wind sprints by himself. Keep pounding the Schmidts

You're right and I'm a diehard 9er fan. The Packers are playing with nothing to lose at their home in a climate they're used to. This is a very dangerous game for my 9ers seeing as we're expected to go deep in the playoffs or back to the SB. Hopefully we do not take this game lightly based on past outcomes.

That being said, there isn't another team in the NFC more dangerous and capable of beating GB at their home than the 9ers as we travel pretty well.

The NFL really needs to do away with this playoff format IMO and it needs to reward teams that have a better record instead of making a 12-4 9er team to have to play at 8-7-1 GB. Let's not even get into the fact that Arizona should be in the playoffs with a 10-6 record in arguably the toughest division in the entire NFL over the Packers who won in a very weak division but we'll see just how weak the Packers are now. This will be one helluva game. I see my 9ers winning in a close one.

Good luck PackerBacker!

At least the Packers have enough tape on the read option to see how other teams have approached them.
8-7-1 against 12-4..Edge niners..hope I am wrong.

The format is fine and it will remain as long as there are divisions. Otherwise why have divisions? And do I need to remind you of the Seattle Seahawks? Everybody said the same kind of nonsense when they made the playoffs with a LOSING record one year. Then they won their first playoff game and people stopped with the nonsense. Winning a division must count for something! It always has and it always will. If the 49ers or any other team that finished behind a team in their division doesn't like it, they can try winning their division! Why the heck should the 49ers or Saints (for example) get to play at home like the Seahawks or Panthers?

The wildcard teams should consider themselves lucky that the NFL allows them to make the playoffs. With NO wildcard teams the NFL would have 8 playoff teams. That is 25% of the teams in the NFL. That really is sufficient. There is no reason , other than to raise more revenue, to have more than 1/3 of all of the teams make the playoffs. And I say that knowing full well that the Packers wouldn't have made it into the playoffs for their last Super Bowl win if that was the case. The Packers were fortunate that the NFL has so many wildcard teams. Better to have a chance playing on the road than no chance at all.

Great TRUE statement:

GREEN BAY, Wis.-- San Francisco 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis tweeted disparaging words about Appleton, Wis., on Saturday night before the team's 23-20 win against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC wild-card round.

Davis tweeted that former pro wrestler Ric Flair was addressing the 49ers in a meeting Saturday night at their team hotel in Appleton.

"Nature Boy Ric Flair flew into this s---hole to show us some love," Davis tweeted.

After receiving unhappy responses to his initial tweet about Appleton, Davis took to Twitter once again to disparage the town.

"Ok everybody that strongly disagrees w me can you defend your argument on this place not being a s---hole? lol btw that is not Rhetorical," Davis tweeted.

Teams visiting the Packers routinely stay in Appleton, which is about 30 miles from Green Bay.

I find it extremely funny that a chicken**** like you only comes out when the Packers fail. I am not here to stick up for GBPfan in any way, but you need to crawl back under your rock until the Bears actually prove something, like, making the playoffs. ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING MY ASS OFF at you poor, pathetic Bears fan. What a joke!
