. . . and then there were four . . .

Funny, at the start of the playoffs I was worried about the Seahawks, the Saints, and the Ravens., and the Chiefs. Three out of four are gone. Thanks to a fast start, and Seattle running out of time, we have the Green Bay Packers traveling west to face us in the NFC Championship game. Yes, a team we faltered against way back in 1995, 1996, and 1997.

Trust me, I saw 1997 NFC Championship game loss, and the 1996 divisional loss. Both were rainy miserable games and we were sitting on the pull-out side. Meaning sitting in the rain all day. They even knocked us out of the 2001 playoffs. Next year of course was Jeff Garcia’s furious comeback in the WC game against the NY Giants only to lose to the Pack again.

Recent history is much kinder. We stomped them silly in week 11 here at Levi’s 37 – 8. In 2011 and 2012, the Niners stomped the Packers to advance in the playoffs. Revenge then was a nice dish, but it was cold as we didn’t finish the deal.

Nex Sunday? I think the 49ers can run at will on these guys. Green Bay was 23rd in yards given up running. Stop Davante Adams and you stop Green Bay.

So, a lot of history to sift through, but like we showed against Minnesota, history don’t mean shit.

    In other news….Holy shit, Levi has a legit home field advantage and even from the wine and cheese crowd. Rolex’s everywhere, yet their owners were screaming for all they were worth. Its a thing of beauty.
    Heading back for the Champ game next week and bought some tix for the SB, just in case, hope I didn’t jinx it.

    Best call of the game yesterday?
    Removing AkSpoon from the lineup.
    Guy is an automatic ‘gimme’ for any QB looking for a soft spot in our coverage.

    GB coming into SC to attempt to steal our trip to Miami.
    I’m ordering the same script they ran against Minny.
    SMASH Mouth football.
    Keep ARod on the sideline.
    Run some more.

    2 more Wins = Lombardi #6 ๐Ÿ˜€

    Yeah I was calling the AK Spoon benching as well.Shanny wised up and also benched him in the road loss to Balt after getting burned for a TD!!
    Moseley will be the guy for sure in there next Sunday as Shanny will keep his Whipping Spoon ๐Ÿฅ„ on the bench against Rodgers…

  5. NJ49er says:

    We took care of Minny.
    Now we focus on Mickey.

  6. NJ49er says:

    Just found this tonight, Wow…
    What a story.
    Very similar to Patrick actually.

    Chuck, has that dipshit racist Denny been posting here? Has he been whining about Grappy not being a *great* QB and thus unable to win the SB? Dude was a broken record of nonsense.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    Nope. Well, some troll has been posting relentlessly for a couple years now. I have a banned list of IP addresses (all bay area IPs) about 300 strong. Nothing racist, little about the team, just ‘Chuck, your stupid, ‘your mom’ jokes, really 5th grade type stuff.

    Doesn’t sound like Dennis or Spitblood. I’d imagine it is someone from Skeebers blog, but who knows? It seems juvenile even for that crowd.

    Flying V popped back in for a couple days and quickly vanished. His ‘parity is ruining the NFL’ ‘the NFL is a girly-man game’ schtick was easy to pick out.

    If you are looking for Dennis, go to Club Mallard in Albany and look under one of the pool tables.

    Baldy Breakdown of Juice…

    Great to hear the crowds are good and loud. Hard to tell on TV, and even in the Pittsburgh game, weeks ago, and there were quite a few Steelers fans, it was nice and loud on the 10 yard line we were sitting in.
