I'm so nervous its the Packers. Our biggest nemesis. This game is going to be epic.
I'm not trying to rip on you or anything and I don't know if you were trying to make a profound statement or not, but every team feels like an underdog because a lot of people doubt each team week in and week out.
For the most part we all know its going to be a close game minus a few homers. A lot of our homers only stay in the main. But anyways GL and hopefully it will at least be a close game and may the best team win.
I also expect a defensive game, maybe something like 21-17
Different GB team from week 1 IMO and a different SF team that's for sure. Anything could happen. Would be a tough road to the SB no matter who we play out of all the teams for the NFC, GB/SF is just a classic tho.

Good luck guys, as a Packers fan I wanted this matchup at home, but none the less it's going to be the 2 best teams in the nfc if you ask me. Winner of this game goes to the bowl.
I think without Manningham and a J Smith that could ineffective gives us a chance. Key to the niners winning.....get the early lead. Key to gb winning, get the early lead. I think it's that simple in this matchup.
Cannot wait for this game! 49ers and Packers playing in January... nothing better. It just seems right. I grew up watching the Niners and Packer duel it out in the playoffs and here we are again!
This game will be very different from week 1... both teams have changed significantly (49ers especially with personnel changes). I have to like the fact the Niners are playing at home and that the staff had an extra week to prepare and gameplan, but I still think it will be a very close game.
Also, I hope Justin Smith is able to play the entire game. A 75% Smith is better than anything else we can throw out there.
49ers, Athletics, Warriors = Life!
Can you Bernie Lean?
49ers = Defending NFC Champs and back to back NFC WEST Champs
Warriors = 47-35, Western Conference 6th seed. WE GOT THIS!
A's = 13-9 Defending AL West Champs!
**** yeah I will be out there early tailgating going to my second ever playoff game !
49ers dominated the first game, the score didn't do the game justice... not to mention one TD was allowed with an illegal block in the back.
The 49ers do not, however, play a team a second time all that well. The NY Giants haven't lost to SF since SF beat them with Harbaugh as coach. The Seahawks throttled the 49ers, the Rams beat SF the second time around this year... Is GB next?
If the 49er defense shows up, and the 49ers control the lines/trenches. They will win.

It really comes down to what J Smith can give us. Goes along with what you were saying about controlling the trenches. We need him to help spring Aldon loose to get pressure on Rodgers to slow his *** down.
Can't wait for this game!
THIS GAME more than any other that I've made this point around. It is crucial. CRUCIAL...
We don't eliminate Frank Gore from our own playbook!!
I'm not saying that he'll duplicate his 7 yards/carry he achieved at Lambeau, but hard nosed RBs having big days have resulted in losses to us, NY and MIN this year.
Joe Webb was able to rush 7 times for 68 yards (9.8), so make sure they have to respect the Kaep factor early...and use Gore and Kaep's legs to open up some play action shots down the field.
