Packers vs 49ers: Post Game Thoughts

My thoughts on the Packers  23-20 loss to the 49ers in the first round of the playoffs

  • This was heartbreaking. Unlike other losses where I may be upset, after Phil Dawson made the kick, I just dropped my head as the realization the season was over hit me.
  • Dom Capers called a helluva game. I understand the defense didn’t get stops when they needed them, but you can’t put all of that on Capers. If that is his last game as a Packer, he went out swinging.
  • Clay Matthews would have been a difference maker today.
  • As much as everyone is going to rag on the defense, the offense didn’t help matters today. A TD on the Packers last drive changes the whole dynamic of the 49ers final drive. The offense as a whole had chances to do a lot more than it did.
  • Morgan Burnett had a season to forget. Hopefully he can shake off this season because it couldn’t be much worse.
  • Micah Hyde could have given the Packers amazing field position if he picks off that Kaepernick pass on the final drive. So, so close!
  • What a season! I know this stings but considering the adversity this team played with all year, its hard not to be proud of this team.
  • Hope Sam Shields is alright, he would have made a difference if he doesn’t get hurt during the first drive.
  • That being said, Davon House is a solid player. Sure he may drive you nuts at times, but he has talent for sure. Will be fun to see grow.
  • Watching Mike Daniels grow up in front of our eyes has been fun. He is going to be a beast!!
  • James Jones picked up a case of the drops before this weeks game. Some were tough but he has to make those grabs.
  • Eddie Lacy is a beast! Ted Thompson got himself a steal with him.
  • Nice to see Nick Perry flying around today. If he can stay healthy next year, he could make a great combo off the edge with Clay!
  • Keep your heads up Packers fans! With everything that happened, we were still NFC North Champs and had a chance until the last minute in our playoff game. I know it hurts, but a lot to be proud of!
  • Absolutely love this team! Win or lose, I’ll always be a Packers Fan!!
  • Go Pack Go!!
