2012 49ers Gameday Thread: Week 1: 49ers at Packers
Week 1:
Sunday, September 9, 2012

San Francisco 49ers (0-0)
Green Bay Packers (0-0)

Location: Lambeau Field

Time: 1:25 pm pst
Line: GB -5
Announcers (FOX): Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Pam Oliver

Dude, the 9ers are like Ö relevant again. This is awesome. Opening up at Lambeau? Yeah, Iíd say that pretty much means youíre relevant. Some people have SF in the Super Bowl. Relevant. Starting the season with Super Bowl aspirations is a beautiful thing.

And then this happens:

Which leads to this:

And then finally, this:

Which got me to thinking about how I wished this Aaron Rodgers fella was a 9er. So I looked it up and, you guys will never ever believe this, but it turns out the 9ers could have picked Rodgers instead of Alex Smith. Crazy huh. I totally researched it. No one ever mentioned it before. Ever. See, hereís proof:

Same draft. Turns out, the 9ers had the first overall pick. They took Smith. Seriously. I researched it. I bet the announcers mention it in the game. Youíre welcome Joe Buck.

I havenít been this excited about a season in a while. There is so much to be excited about.


Definitely this:

I mean, if I was a girl Ö

As always, this:

All this awesome to get excited about, and then they go and drop this on us:

**** yeah. As far as low risk/high reward gambles go, this one has monster potential.

Or he could just end up like this:

My pick for 49er with the best stat line at the end of the year:

Gimme a thumbs up if you promise to stay out of off-the-field trouble:

Double? Ö Nice.

Back to the Packers, this has always scared me, like, Antonio Freeman-style scared.

Ugh, these guys are pretty good too:

BTW, if I was any good at photoshop, Iíd be putting all kinds of funny **** in Woodsonís hands.

And I guess theyíre going to rock this guy in the backfield

I kind of like the move for Green Bay. Wonít matter against our run D though.

The Packers are the early favorite for the Super Bowl. Rightfully so. I think they have the best team. I guess itís better to get this one out of the way early in the season. Helps our BCS standings.

And finally,

Hopefully moar of this:

And not this:

Itís Week ******* 1. Iím not posting any standings!

Special Note: One last dance with this and then itís on to 2012:

I am so excited/nervous about this game. This needs to get here!

dan77733 09-07-2012 11:04 AM

As always Borat, awesome breakdown. :)

Cant wait until Sunday and for the first year ever, I'll be able to watch every 49ers game. :) Thankfully, I have PS3 for NFL ST and Cablevision for the few MNF and TNF games. So pumped.

Packers passing offense is awesome but thats it. Their defense is average and their running game is non-existent. I'm more concerned about their return teams than I am with their defense and running game.

Personally, our offense hinges on two things - our OL playing up to their draft status/ability and WR Randy Moss. I believe that he is the wildcard. If he can at least match his 2009 season, our passing offsense will be a threat. If he repeats 2010, our offense as a whole will be what it was a year ago.

Either way, im definitely excited for Sunday's game. Definitely believe that we can win the game and if we dont, I'll be disappointed but as long as its within single digits, it wont be as bad considering its just the first game and its in Green Bay. I would be more concerned if this game was in December.

Hoping Moss crushes the Packers secondary and regains his old form.

49ers 24
Packers 20

I feel the same way. Best of luck. Well not really but you know I figured id show good sportsmanship. :D

hawkeye123 09-07-2012 12:46 PM

i'm way to pumped for this game!

Hopefully we have a passing game going and don't have to rely on just running the ball.

Ness 09-07-2012 04:58 PM

Years of disappointment has really tempered my expectations even after a 13-3 season. I just hope it doesn't end up like 49ers at Seattle on opening day two years ago. High expectations and the 49ers wet the bed. Oh and apparently Jacobs and Ginn are doubtful for the opener. Williams will be returning punts most likely. I pray Frank Gore has a huge game. I think he's the key. Hunter too.

How many points are the Packers favored by anyways?

Goon61 09-07-2012 05:07 PM

I always love these threads, keep it comin

Borat 09-07-2012 06:57 PM

Damn. Forgot to get Jordyzzz into the original post. ****.

I have remorse.

I pray to you oh holy one.

GB -5 last time I checked

Green Bay has more to prove than the Niners in this game. adding the pressure to them, providing a decent opportunity for an early season let down. They are at home and are the favorite. They are expected to win. They had the league's best record and were embarrassed in the playoffs. I like Harbaugh having this squad mentally ready to play hard, physical Niner football. With a solid defensive effort and the offense scoring TDs and not FGs, they'll come away with the W.

The one wildcard is if we'll see Harbaugh and Roman (now with a season and full non-lockout offseason) unleash Alex a bit to challenge this secondary that mightily struggled last season. I see some jump balls being thrown to Moss and some downfield shots to VD and Jenkins/Williams being mixed in. They were so Vanilla in preseason that it'll be exciting to see what the gameplan/wrinkles are in the passing game.

Ness 09-07-2012 07:47 PM

I hope the Packers don't score on their first drive. I also hope it's a long day. Man I'll be ******* pissed. Be ready. I really don't want to hear how it was the Green Bay defense that won the game and shut the 49ers down all day.

It will also be interesting to see how Aldon Smith maintains his stamina since he's going to be playing most of the downs now.

Ness 09-07-2012 07:55 PM

By the way Harbaugh blew up today at the media session when asked about Kyle Williams.

Well watching it, he didn't really blow up, he just made the reporter look dumb for asking a dumb question that had been repeated time and time again.

Of course NFL.com made it seem like he was an asshole.

49ersfan_87 09-08-2012 12:15 AM

If you have an hour to kill- 49ers vs Packers Madden Simulation. Obviously things will be different but I've only watched the first quarter, and it seems feasible (the playcalls, formations, outcome on both offense and defense).


dan77733 09-08-2012 11:56 AM

What a crappy game. 13-6. And you can see exactly one of the major complaints with that crappy game. The play-calling. Seriously, a draw play to Gore that ends the game. 2K needs to return in two years because Tiburon and EA suck. M13 has so many problems, its amazing that it hit retail the way it did but then again, EA uses the consumers as testers so im not really surprised either. UGH.

phlysac 09-08-2012 10:30 PM

If you need more to hype yourself for the game... here's two vids...

Borat 09-09-2012 01:40 AM

Win or lose, I hope we all can temper the eventual freakout. It's just one non-divisional game.

Ness 09-09-2012 03:01 AM

I just hope the 49ers look prepared. I don't think that's too much to ask for. If they seem focused and don't make a lot of mistakes with penalties and turnovers they should have a decent shot to win the game.

Brent 09-09-2012 08:56 AM

it's the nation-wide game, I really hope they just don't look like ****.

WhatWouldBillyBajemaDo? 09-09-2012 09:13 AM

So glad to have the game threads back in my life. Been waiting over 6 months to get the taste of the NFCC game out of my mouth. Go 49ers!!!!!

Not for me.


95% of the nation is getting it and I am in the 5% that isn't. Raging so much right now

hawkeye123 09-09-2012 01:16 PM

Yeah i can't watch the game on tv in Arizona

edit: gotta a link

hawkeye123 09-09-2012 06:03 PM

Why's it so dead in here?

23-7 going into the 4th

Justone2 09-09-2012 06:23 PM

Time for the normal refs to come back.

hawkeye123 09-09-2012 07:01 PM

Hell Yeah what an awesome win!!!

D played great, for the most part. Seems like the difference was the 9ers had a passing game going most of the game.

Borat 09-09-2012 07:03 PM

Was hanging out in the other gameday thread.

What a huge ******* win. So many things I'm happy about.
