We took a look at the San Francisco 49ers, the second-best team in the NFL, on Sunday. Here’s what we found out and how it might apply to a matchup with the Green Bay Packers.
After hemming and hawing a while, we decided to take a look around the NFL to see who the top teams are, who’s in the MVP conversation and who makes absolutely no sense. Here’s what we came up with.
A look around the league at the midway point of the season. Here’s the weekly WTF, top 10 teams, and those players who are #winning and #losing. Guess who’s on top.
A look around the NFL after seven weeks. Here are the things that made us say what the fuck? We’ll give you the top teams, top players and a few idiots that make the game hard to watch.
Here’s a look around the NFL after six weeks. Let us know what you think. Making statements San Francisco 49ers We called the Niners surprising last week, but we’ll call them legit this week.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers admits he wanted to play for the San Francisco 49ers, who drafted Alex Smith instead in 2005. In the end, it looks like things worked out for everyone… except the 49ers.
Teams can’t officially sign free agents until Friday, but that didn’t stop several players from agreeing to contracts. That, plus the Minnesota Vikings pursuit of Donovan McNabb and Nnamdi Asomugha’s first suitor.
Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]
After last week’s edition of ESPN’s NFL power rankings, top helmets in the NFL, I half expected this week’s edition to focus on best colors. Of course, they went and pulled something somewhat relevant out — top 10 defensive players. Clay Matthews was the only member of the Green Bay Packers to make the top 10, finishing fifth. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was the consensus No. 1.
By now, you know the story of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ experience at the NFL Draft. Rodgers was under consideration for the No. 1 overall pick. The San Francisco 49ers ended up choosing Utah quarterback Alex Smith. Jon Gruden and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers passed on Rodgers several picks later.
It’s another installment of ESPN’s NFL power rankings. This time — linebackers. The Green Bay Packers’ Clay Matthews came in fourth in the rankings. The San Francisco 49ers’ Patrick Willis was the runaway leader in the voting. Willis was followed by the Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison and the Dallas Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware, who were separated […]
Although several analysts have suggested Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb could be the guy who eventually winds up behind center for the Minnesota Vikings, the team has a lot of options. Peter King suggests the Cincinnati Bengals Carson Palmer is one of them. Palmer has said he won’t play for the Bengals again and who could blame him?
Perhaps lost in the hype surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ matchup with the Chicago Bears for the NFC Championship is this important nugget — Packers defensive coordinator isn’t going anywhere. There was talk towards the end of the season Capers should be and could be considered for an NFL head coaching job because of the […]
It’s like t-shirt time, only better, because no one from Jersey is involved. Shawn Neuser takes a look at the Green Bay Packers 34-16 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. The Green Bay Packers did what they needed to in dispatching the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Here is a closer look at the key […]
For some reason, this touchdown reception by Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver against the San Francisco 49ers never gets old. So, watch it one more time before the Nazis at the NFL have it pulled from YouTube. If you heard the local radio broadcast, Larry McCarren yelled, “The old man’s still got it!” as […]
The Green Bay Packers started slow, at one point trailing 6-0, but after an electrifying second quarter touchdown catch by Greg Jennings, there was no looking back for the Green Bay offense. Aaron Rodgers continued his hot streak and the Packers defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-16. As I pointed out in my prediction, 49ers […]
Shawn: The San Francisco 49ers are still in contention to win their pathetic division, and they are coming off probably their best game of the season. So, they will at least start this game with the belief that they can play with the Green Bay Packers. It will be up to the Packers to dispel […]
The San Francisco 49ers clearly intend on throwing any and everyone they have at Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, on Sunday. Matthews and his league-leading 11.5 sacks will be lined up across from rookie right tackle Anthony Davis. Granted, Davis was a first-round pick this season, but he’s struggled in every game with […]
