    I think this will be a very good game. Think the Packers will win late.

    No more VIP Suite so back to the recliner
    I like the Pack in a close one. They need to hang onto the ball and rattle Cutler.

    How the hell did Alex Smith go #1 ovrl and Aaron Rodgers plummet in the draft?

    I wonder what it's like to be a 49ers fan and know that you passed on Aaron Rodgers for Alex Smith. Atleast with the Carr draft, there wasn't a stud QB taken after him. LOL, Joey Harrington was just as bad.

    They were talking about this on the radio this past week. I don't really remember rodgers' exact issue myself but they were saying he had some arm issues coming out (weak) & that he didn't really interview well etc.. also that he was a jeff tedford guy & those guys are known to have issues transitioning to the league.

    Basically said that the years he spent on the bench he worked on getting his arm stronger & bulking himself up..said that the years he spent behind Favre really helped him alot.

    First the Blackhawks lose, now if fortunes rolls the Bears lose. Good times. Let's see Chicago come up with a dumb song for this day.

    As I post the Bears are doing a great job of answering. I love Championship weekend. :texanbill:

    Even though he came from a Pro college set, I remember the word with him coming out was he wasn't very athletic, lacked accuracy on longer passes, and showed poor pocket presence.

    Also, Niners had Mike McCarthy as their OC when they drafted Smith. They could have McCarthy and Rodgers right now!

    Just curious to know if anyone watching the Bears defense notice any better play out of the DTs than what we've seen from Amobi & Cody?

    Not that I necessarily disagree on Amobi's "bust" status. I do however wonder what the expectations of a 4-3 DT should be. More often than not, what I see from Amobi, imo, is pretty much the norm of what 4-3 defenses get out of that position.

    I do understand expecting more from the player given his draft position. You take a DT at that spot, you expect Warren Sapp. I get that. But, you don't cut a player because he's not Warren Sapp. You don't bench a player because he's not Warren Sapp...... unless of course you have Warren Sapp on your team.

    Anyway..... just saying.

    Man that Packers defense looks good. The Packers defensive coordinator might make a really good head coach...

    Carr, Harrington, Smith...... all three started a significant number of games their first season in the NFL.

    Aaron Rodgers was able to watch, learn, & study before picking up some bad, bad habits.

    Of course this is just theory, & we'll never know how things may have turned out, if things went differently.

    For one, had the 49ers drafted Aaron Rodgers #1 overall, that coaching/drafting staff at that time would have been under much more scrutiny than they were. Had it not made a difference, & Rodgers performed as poorly as Smith.... that staff may not have been around as long as they were.

    It is curious though, that Alex Smith is considered a bust for the work he's done in San Francisco.... Martz however parlayed his time there to a job with the Chicago Bears.
