Sunday Night Football – Game III – Grilled Cheese Time

One way or another it feels like the Niners and Packers play every year. And then meet in the playoffs. It has been a back-and-forth affair, with the Niners dominating the Cheeseheads in the playoffs these last three meetings. Sure, they beat us last year, but that is the outlier. Throw in the intrigue of the 49ers trying to GET Rodgers last year as Rodgers fought with the Packers front office, and the other fact that Rodgers was snubbed by the 49ers and Mike McCarthy WAAAAAY back in 2005, and you have a nice bunch of subplots.

The game? Well, we will have Trey Sermon starting, Elijah Mitchell is doubtful, Kinlaw, AA, and Moseley all are questionable but should play. The Packers have issues at their left tackle spot as Serra boy David Bakhtiari is out, and his replacement Elgton Jenkins is out, they are starting their 3rd string undrafted tackle Josh Noggin (?), and they are already starting two rookies on their line.

Look to GB to try and establish the run, throw quicker passes, and try to negate our pass rush. I think we can dominate at the point of attack and keep Rodgers off the field.

We have our usual concerns. No mistakes from Jimmy G. No fumbles. At least we don’t have to worry about 40 yard scrambles with Rodgers, but he is elusive enough in the pocket to get his passes off. Our recipe for victory is constant and unrelenting pressure. And to keep Jimmy G clean in the pocket. The Packers aren’t putting much pressure on QBs in their first 2 games, but they did get better in the 2nd half of the Detroit game. Their first 6 quarters were disastrous defensively.

Should be another good one. 35-27 Niners.

  1. Winder says:

    I think we take this one too. Barring Dline injuries we should give Rogers a real tough time today. 34-17 Niners.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    Curious to see how Fields does in his first start.

  3. unca_chuck says:

    Browns go for it on 4th down twice, and both are busted plays for losses. Derp!

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Joey Bosa hurt again after missing the first 2 games.

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Bears wimp out on 4th and 1 from the 27 and settle for the FG.

    Browns kick a 57 yarder..

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Fields getting killed in the pocket. Bosa back out there.

  7. Irish Kevin says:

    Well let’s hope it is a close game, I don’t want to see Kyle go conservative in the 3rd and 4th quarters

  8. Lurker John says:

    Good ballgame in KC. Herbert is the real deal.

  9. Lurker John says:

    Bosa was in there at the end, so his injury can’t be too bad. He was wreaking havoc in the KC backfield.

  10. Lurker John says:

    Vikings defense looking like ass in the first half against Seattle.

  11. Lurker John says:

    The fucking Rams are starting to look like a juggernaut. We’re not going to roll over them this year.

  12. Lurker John says:

    Vikes up by 10 in the 4th.

  13. Lurker John says:

    Cousins is having a huge game.

  14. Lurker John says:

    This is going to get ugly fast. Niners look like shit early.

  15. Irish Kevin says:

    Well I am going to wait to comment at the end of the game.

  16. Winder says:

    We don’t have a run game and Jimmy under pressure probably won’t work. I think Lance comes in pretty soon.

    • Irish Kevin says:

      That’s he problem, Niner mentality is run first use up the clock. Where as other teams like GB is throw the ball deep and either catch the ball o pass interference

  17. theroooster says:

    FortyWhiners gonna shit the bed again in Primetime. Happens every year.

  18. theroooster says:

    oh boy, here we go!

  19. Irish Kevin says:

    Deep pass, interception, Kyle will go right back to run the ball!

  20. Aaron Rahdgers says:

    So how’s the game going, guys?

  21. Irish Kevin says:

    Will this be the second game the Niners don’t score in the first half?

  22. unca_chuck says:

    Oh rooster. Your pitching looks like dogshit. Be happy with your COVID WS candy ads win

  23. Kylle Shamahan says:

    Hopefully the Niners can score some points in the second half. We’ll see!

  24. Lurker John says:

    This team is in trouble. Miserable performance, across the board.

  25. Winder says:

    We look fucking terrible. Serman is a fucking dud and Jimmy is inconsistent. Donte Johnson might as well take the day off and our line can’t stop the run. We are fucked.

  26. zumiee says:

    Sometimes I forget the Rams are an LA team again, and I still think they’re a St. Louis team.

  27. zumiee says:

    Well-crafted play for the Niner TD.

  28. unca_chuck says:

    Right back I t he game

  29. Irish Kevin says:

    I am not sure about wasting a half before getting in a rhythm

  30. unca_chuck says:

    It is what it is. The play to Kittle was dumb.

  31. alleykat69 says:

    That score they had to have before halftime was huge.And then to take the 3 rd quarter ball right down the field has kept them in it. Still they need some stops as the secondary is getting thin fast again(Norman &Williams)

  32. unca_chuck says:

    Pass rush is nonwxistent

  33. unca_chuck says:

    They are down 2 linemen and kicking our ass on the line

  34. unca_chuck says:

    I’d throw in a corner boitz

  35. zumiee says:

    Jimmy G did well on that drive overall. It wasn’t spectacular, but got the job done.

  36. zumiee says:

    Yikes- scary hit on the receiver. Should have been a penalty.

  37. Irish Kevin says:

    Penalties are going to cost us the game

  38. Irish Kevin says:

    That was a pretty weak call on roughing the passer

  39. Irish Kevin says:

    Where as that was definitely tripping haha

  40. zumiee says:

    Well, here’s Jimmy’s chance to be the hero.

  41. unca_chuck says:

    Jimmy g can redeem his shit night

  42. unca_chuck says:

    No more w stupid bubble screens

  43. Irish Kevin says:

    Why are they keeping Deebo in the backfield

  44. unca_chuck says:

    This is when we should be running g

  45. unca_chuck says:

    They know what we are gonna do. This is dumb to not even have a back I the backfield

  46. unca_chuck says:

    Wow. Samuel is a stud

  47. unca_chuck says:

    Jimmy’s golden for now

  48. Irish Kevin says:

    All passes, hmmm…

  49. unca_chuck says:

    Too much time but go has no to’s

  50. Irish Kevin says:


  51. unca_chuck says:

    This one is on the dwfense

  52. Irish Kevin says:

    Well that sucks

  53. zumiee says:

    And the prevent defense that prevents victory.

  54. theroooster says:


  55. Irish Kevin says:

    Well it would be nice if they would score in the 1st quarter,

  56. LA Football says:

    There’s a new sheriff in town in the NFC West and they play in Southern California. Hahahahahahaha!

  57. Jimmy G. says:

    Where is Nick Mullens when you need him?

  58. unca_chuck says:

    We should have run to burn more clock. And we should have rushed 7. We gave Rodgers the middle of the field and he gladly took it

  59. Winder says:

    Green Bay just gave the rest of the league a road map on how to play us. Luckily most teams don’t have Rogers and Adams. Jimmy’s immobility does leave us at a disadvantage.

  60. unca_chuck says:

    The issue early was they threw in 1st down because Bosa was t in on 1st down. We adjusted in the 3rd quarter.

  61. alleykat69 says:

    The only highlight of the 1st half was the last play when Lance ran it in.Did any of u see what All Pro All Beast Trent Williams did to that poor DB Stokes.He pancaked him, pulverized him into submission, launching him airborne on his back! His reward? Lance let him spike the football 🏈..

  62. unca_chuck says:

    Still pissed off about Demeco. Big fail to allow Rodgers to stand unscathed in the pocket and wait for those 30 yards passes to evolve. We should have blitzed him hard. One sack and the game is over.

  63. alleykat69 says:

    Secondary was getting torched all night and you can’t spot them 17 points before u start to think of playing football goddammit. And then leaving Rodgers 37 seconds left was just stupid scoring to fast. Have to milk the clock to the end before u score.Montana,Brady, Mahomes,Wilson etc would be licking their chops as the 49ers went into their prevent win defense, ridiculous you know Adams is the guy he’s going to, blast his ass at the line of scrimmage! Rush, sucked, secondary sucked in that span of 37 seconds..

  64. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, I wanted to see one or two runs mixed in there on that last drive.

    Biggest fail was letting Rodgers have all that time to hit those 2 passes. Blitz the fuck out of him is the only way. Those plays too time to develop, and we gave it to him.
