I just knew we'd miss that FG attempt.  Errors creeping in for both teams

Credit to Purdy there ... marched his team down the field with a TD as a result

Both teams have missed a field goal attempt so an even score there

game over. Great effort from the Packers. had the opportunities but couldn't convert. they be a force in years to come.

49ers found a way. This game will stand to them. They're my pick for the SB.

So Love tries the Brett Favre special and it's game over.  Could have thrown the ball away but no risk, no reward 

Put up a great effort did the Packers but the 49ers just a bit too good on the night

As for Jordan Love, his 2nd half was forgettable and he might have a few sleepless nights mulling over what could have been.  

Loads of potential but he's not that good (yet) First year as a starter so it's still too early to tell where he might progress to

Still, you often learn more from a loss and GB need to keep working on areas not involving the QB passing the ball

To be a true contender we need a top-level running game (Jones needs help) and the run-defence needs to be top-notch as well.  Currently the Packers are 15th in rushing yards and 28th in rush defence (The McCaffrey TD was scored too easily in my opinion)

But to make the playoffs and win a playoff game and then run the 49ers close was a grand effort for such a young team

So the 49ers get a visit from either Detroit or Tampa next week.  Should win but there are no guarantees in this sport.  However, whatever rust the 49ers might have had is now out of their system

And I reckon the Ravens won't have it all their way no matter who they play.  KC & the Bills are more than capable

A great game for the public, for the fans involved maybe not so much with heart rates going up like odometers. Still, another classic encounter in Packers-49ers post season history.

Green Bay came to play, the weather was something they are used to and they hit the ground running with yards on the ground. All week I was banging on about defending runs outside the tackles and how losing Clelin Ferrell was going to hurt and this was evident with Jones early. I thought LeFleur outcoached Shanahan in this game. Kyle went pass heavy early in the rain and I'm sure CMC had touched the ball maybe twice in the first quarter and a half. These weird calls happen so often with Kyle and I never understand it. Purdy can not seem to throw at all in the wet. He made two brilliant throws when it counted but I counted at least 8 throws that were no-where near the receiver. The Packers didn't commit any PI penalties but it sure is easy to do that when the ball is not even in the post code you're in. I will say Green Bay brought excellent pressure on Purdy all game. Rashan Gary and co have had a great season.

It was just a very tough game and the Niners kept shooting themselves in the foot with penalties and big kick off returns when it looked like they could have been turning the tide. Ambrey Thomas had a nightmare and LaFleur picked up on this as he targeted him consistently. Late in the game we started to get pressure on Love and eventually got the turnover we needed. It was just enough in the end.

A win is a win but the confidence took a little dip after that. Deebo could be in trouble with that shoulder and there are others playing banged up. Fingers are crossed that there are no more rainy games. Purdy will have the wet weather choker tag until he can work well in those conditions. For the Packers they definitely should hold their head up high. Balled out all game and very nearly took it out. I thought Jordan Love started quite well but unfortunately made those mistakes later on. I really enjoy watching this guy play. He moves well on his feet and evades pressure, makes all kinds of throws (That one to Jaylen Reed in the flat before the half was incredible). I've said it before but I'm a fan of Jordan Love and I would probably prefer him to Purdy. His all round arm ability is just better, he'll learn heaps from this game and the Packers have a Franchise QB once again by the look of it. Green Bay also have a swag of young talent there, can see them going one better next year with some good additions and a healthy AJ Dillon.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.
