Packers-49ers postgame notes

Posted by packers.com on January 5, 2014 – 9:02 pm

PACKERS FALL TO 49ERS IN NFC WILD CARD GAME

- The Packers lost to the 49ers, 23-20, on Sunday in an NFC Wild Card contest in front of 77,525 at Lambeau Field.

- Sunday’s contest against San Francisco was Green Bay’s 49th postseason game, which ranks No. 3 in league history behind Dallas (58) and Pittsburgh (54). The Packers now have an all-time record of 30-19 (.612) in the postseason.

- With a game-time temperature of 5 degrees on Sunday, it marked the coldest game at Lambeau Field since Dec. 7, 2008, vs. Houston (3 degrees). It was the seventh-coldest game at Lambeau Field (since 1959) and the fourth-coldest postseason game at the stadium.


OTHER POSTGAME NOTES:

- With eight points on Sunday, K Mason Crosby brought his career postseason total to 77 points, No. 1 in franchise playoff history. He surpassed Chris Jacke (73 points) for the team playoff scoring mark.

- Crosby made both of his FG attempts on Sunday, extending his franchise-record streak to nine consecutive FGs made in the postseason.

- Crosby set a franchise playoff record by scoring in his 11th consecutive postseason game.

- FB John Kuhn scored on a 1-yard TD run in the fourth quarter, which gave him at least one TD in each of the last five postseasons (2009-13). He is the only current NFL player to do so each postseason since 2009 and he matched the team playoff record set by RB Dorsey Levens from 1994-98.

- Kuhn now has seven career TDs in the postseason (four rushing, three receiving), which moves him into sole possession of the No. 2 spot in team playoff history behind only WR Antonio Freeman (12 TDs).

- WR Jordy Nelson’s 5-yard TD catch in the second quarter was his fourth career TD grab in the postseason and his first since Super Bowl XLV vs. Pittsburgh (Feb. 6, 2011). With four career TD catches in the playoffs, Nelson is tied for No. 4 in team postseason history.

- CB Tramon Williams’ second-quarter interception was the fourth of his career in the postseason, which ties him with five others for No. 1 in franchise playoff history.

- LB Brad Jones posted the second sack of his career in the postseason when he brought down QB Colin Kaepernick in the first quarter.

- DT Mike Daniels posted his first career sack in the playoffs when he brought Kaepernick down for a 5-yard loss in the third quarter.

- LB Nick Perry recorded his first career sack in the postseason when he brought Kaepernick down for an 8-yard loss in the third quarter.

    Just too many injuries to key people. For the Pack to even make the playoffs and come so close is a credit to the players and the coaching staff. We also got beat by a very good football team. Only one team out of 32 can win the SB and as long as we keep making the playoffs we will always have a chance. Can anyone imagine being a Viking or Bear fan. Great year and maybe next year we will do better. Anyone that hasn’t seen a live Packer game at Lambeau should go next year. I did on Nov. 4 and it was beyond my imagination. Go Pack Go 2015

    The Pack went down fighting to the last play, which was darn near blocked. What more can you ask for?.
    Come from behind victory’s from the Falcons, Cowboys, Bears game, and a come from behind tie with the Vikes.
    Could not be prouder of the never quit fight this team stamped on this year.
    Sadly, if we can’t field a defense we will waste the career of Rodgers. Aside from the ’10 season, MM legacy is that of a defense that can’t get off the field when it has to.
    Thanks, Pack. It was a memorable, action packed, edge of your seat year.
    Congrat’s on what was a great team effort, and the mountains that were climbed.

    Your team is 1 dimensional. It’s all Aaron and even when he’s there he can;t make a difference anymore because he’s getting old and tired and starting to break down.

    Sandy: yeah yeah a “tebow” and a “flash in the pan”. Not bad for putting up the record numbers he’s putting up, hey? Record for rushing QB. He’ll beat the record for a QB rushing in the playoffs maybe this season. He 12-0 this season when throwing over 150 yards. He’s on a 7 game winning streak. Beat your team single-handadly in the week 1 and last season’s playoff. Yeah another tebow…hahahaha. Rodgers is breaking down..he’s getting old. What u think about that, hey?

    Oh well I don’t think that’s bad Packer-ink considering Niners were supposed to be a fair weather team and would freeze in the tundra. Looks like Aaron had problems gripping and holding the ball first quarter. We barely beat you when you were injured, right? But we beat you up pretty bad when you were healthy and we had tons of injuris in week 1 remember? ON a field which doesn’t resemble a potato field in the antartic we would anihilate your healthy 1 dimensional team…end of.

    seahawks are not unbeatable at home, just ask the Cardinals. They are beatable like anyone else..and guess what? Last game Niners won, as I recall. So we shall see…if they even beat the Saints at home. Pressure is on them to perform…and Lynch is banged up, he’s still human and feels it at this stage, mark my words.

    With the losing seasons between their last Super Bowl win and the 1st round draft picks the niners have had and still they have not won anything. We have won two since their last one and they should be reminded that when they were in their run we owned them. Let them have their fun and their smack talk until they hoist the hardware it means nothing. I felt good about the game they were supposed to be this big bad physical team but with all second and third stringers we had playing on defense to only lose by 3. They are the ones who should feel scared only beating a mediocre defense. Wait till they have to play a real defense in Carolina and if they are lucky enough Seattle.

    YOU PACKER FANS ARE SO IGNORANT AND DELUSIONAL. You are fans of a bad team that is covered up by a good qb. All I hear are excuses, too many injuries, biased refs. Get real packer fans, the window of oportunity for another championship has been slammed shut. Although, I’m loving it. All I can think of is 2010 when you were all clamoring about the dynasty that the packers were going to be. THE DYNASTY THAT NEVER WAS. ohhh, you people are so sad

  30. By Sam on Jan 5, 2014 | Reply

    I might be hated for saying this but here it goes. I am sick of the way the Pack lays off. Example. just before half time we let the clock run down and settle for a field goal. we had a time out and more downs. We were very close to getting a touch down and the 4 points would have made a big WIN. Our D was doing good when they were putting pressure on The QB in the 4th quarter they changed what was working and got conservative. I am sick of the organization being so darned soft. Stick with what is working and stop trying to be so smart and changing things up. McCarthy’s clock management may have been what lost this game if you go back to the first half. There have been many games when he has put the team in a bad position because of this very detail. I have to say our coaches suck. We have a great team but poor coaching giving us a slightly above average team. Our team should be great. They make the coaches look good but it is not the coaching that has gotten us to the play offs time and time again. WE NEED NEW COACHES. WE HAVE A SUPER BOWL CORE IN OUR TEAM THE COACHES DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEM A DYNASTY BUT THEY ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.

    I love our team, and appreciate all that the current coaches have brought to us, but with the talent this team has, we shouldn’t be “one and out” two years in a row. The play calling continues to baffle me, and the defense simply is NOT playing to their capability. I know this is heresy, but I honestly think it’s time for some new coaching, or a change in the current coach’s approach, philosophy, play-calling, something!

    I’m glad this season is over. Great way to end it getting whipped by SF again. Hey TT get some D players this year that can play. Along with that some O line people that can block. I’m tired also of all the injuries. Get these guys on offseason conditioning program and monitor progress. In fact get someone that knows something about body mechanics, stretching and strengthening. Also please next season get rid of the word ADVERSITY = EXCUSES.

Nevertheless, what an exciting game. I love how the refs let the players play ball – many non-calls on both teams, but it was a pleasure to watch. Great heart Packers!!!! Let’s go for 2014-15 !!!!

If true, this could be the last piece of the puzzle the Pack needs to put the last 3 extremely disappointing years behind them (Ponder is a young gun, mobile with a ROCKET for an arm) and the draft picks that would come with would allow the Pack to rebuild the D Line and O Line quick.

So with that being said my question is this… is it the injuries?? or is it the schemes that Dom Capers is running?? or is it the personal and lack of talent on the field?? And TT and MM better draft some talent… not just so so O linemen this draft!

    No one has mentioned how the 49ers front 4 had pressure on Rodgers nearly all the time (well people are calling for a good o-lineman draft).

    There were a lot of things that contributed to this loss but it was the pressure the 49ers D generated almost every play, the Packers D failed to generate pressure nearly all year.

    Wish we had a higher draft pick.

    It’s not ALL about the draft! T.T. needs to look at some high free agency players this off season! Who cares if the player comes from in-house or F.A.,as long as he has the ability to do the JOB!!! Can’t be spending all the money on 1 or 2 players, but i guarantee there’s going to be some top notch offensive lineman and defensive players available!!!!!!

    To all the sore-winner 9ers fans that feel the need to post here: How’d that Super bowl go for you last year? Also, don’t forget, history is against you, since the loser of the previous year’s Super Bowl hasn’t made it back the next year in a LONG time. Good luck with the rest of the playoffs, you’re going to need it, since you only beat an 8-7-1 team that really shouldn’t have made the playoffs, and you have the powerhouse teams coming up.

    To the those of you Packers fans: The Pack hung in there until the last couple of plays. Considering how bad some of the games went when everybody including Rodgers was out injured, that’s actually an improvement. Remember, 3 weeks ago, the Packers could very easily have not made it had Chicago won one more game. Being beat by 3 points by the defending NFC champs is not a bad loss. The 9ers had to fight for it, and considering where the team was there for a while, that’s a good sign. Anyhow, maybe having a year or two of not being great will trim off some of the fans that seem to think that they have win every game and the Super Bowl every year to enjoy watching the team.

    Now maybe Packer fans will stop saying they are the best fans in the NFL. First, it took a business to buy the rest of the tickets so it could be shown on tv. Second, they were actually booing, in a playoff game, at the end of the 1st quarter even though they were only down 6 -0. Third, the last 8 games at Lambeau proved not to be so much a homfield advantage 3 – 5 record in those 8 games. Most Packer fans are like most any fan. They cheer when they win and complain when they lose. As long as they have Rodgers and now Lacey, they will always be a legit contender. But stop thinking they are the best team.

    ***********************************

    He may not be on the field but it is his Defensive schemes that constantly leave WR’s open all day and running lanes in the middle. It’s his job to TEACH and it’s obvious the Pack D is not learning. Dom Capers’ D is too complicated for young players.

    Agreed, TT needs to infuse a couple high football IQ free agents, one defintely at Safety. Hate to say but Dom’s system worked a few years ago but offenses have evolved beyond what he’s scheming. Also the lack of talent and depth on that side of the ball is pretty evident.
    Love MM but more questionable play calling than not especially on 3rd downs.
    Hope TT, MM, A-Rod and crew get a lot of time to reflect and get it together this long off-season.

    Areas to improve in offseason…
    1.) Draft Eric Ebron with first pick if he’s available. Finley is done and we need a big TE that can give Rodgers someone to throw to in the middle. A good portion of his sacks are lack of open receivers and not just bad O-line blocking.
    2.) New Defensive Coordinator and a return to the 4-3
    3.) Replace AJ Hawk with a scarecrow in the middle because at least the middle wouldn’t always be vacant. And I bet the scarecrow would tackle better.
    4.) Either replace McCarthy or at least hire an Offensive Coordinator who can call plays.
    5.) Replace strength/conditioning staff as well as whoever is teaching the Defense to tackle like girls.

    Feel free to criticize or add to it. In the long run it only helps the team because apparently the people running our organization are indeed less talented than us couch coaches.

    2) Booing their team in 1st quarter when down just 6

    3) Loud mouth nobodies

    Don Capers is a joke! If he hasn’t figured out how to stop a mobile QB by now, he never will. It’s about time they find someone who can, it’s inexcusable in your last two playoff games to let a QB run all over you. Just fire him already.

    Quarless can play and play well. Take a close look at al of the balls thrown Quarless way he rarely misses when thrown too. He is an untapped resource and a mismatch against safeties and lbs. Areas to leave alone – cornerback (if healthy solid), Running back, QB (sign Flynn and solid). O-line with Bulaga back solid (move Barclay to Guard and have EDS and LANG battle for centre) oh yeah and the newhouse/sherrod experiment needs to be let go. Newhouse is AWFUL!!!
    Defense – MLB must be addressed. Hawk is a backup at this point in his career, horriffic in space and coverage and with Bush and Forte twice a year that MUST be addressed. Safety – Burnett and Jennings are a YIKES! There needs to be an upgrade at that spot! OLB – Perry is good when healthy but hardly ever is healthy. OLB is a need or rush end. I like Daniels/Boyd and what they bring. Raji – cut the weight no more chicken/waffle houses. Daniels is an everydown player. The linebacker core and ball hawk safety is major area of weakness. This D needs a playmakers and bangers! TT must think hard about moving up to get those positions under control. This D gave up way too many drives of over 5 minutes when the game was on the line and COULD NOT get off the field. I will have nightmares this week as coach of football watching Bush first take an angle that was terrrible then leaving his feet and then going inside and opening the door to CK to go for 11.. That is either on the coach or is Bush not understanding scheme or responsiblilty of discipline on his part. Woodson would not have made that mistake. Leadership sadly missed on back end all year long!!

    I would think that such a rough and tumble team such as the 40 whiners would stand up to block outside linebackers, not dive at their knees. If course if you injure them you no longer have to face them. The QB was sacked and contained until a low dive at Mulumba’s knees.

    If the Panthers beat Carolina next weekend, we still have a MATHEMATICAL CHANCE – do not give up HOPE!

    To All Those Who Put Up Nasty Comments about the PACKERS…This is a FAN webpage…GET A LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How bad is your life if you have to go on a PACKER FAN webpage and put down PACKER FANS!! Do you steal money out of the collection plate on Sunday too??? WOW!!! If you don’t like the Packers, find something else to do….. read a book, or look at the pictures!

    Yeah, the Packers are just not a superbowl contender – wait, hold up, they won the Superbowl this century? With this team? Against a very good Steelers team? By more than a lousy 3 points? Without a whiny headcoach that relies on faux Holding penalties for first downs?

    Tell me more about the Niners last SuperBowl way back in ’95 where they won against the Chargers (rolls eyes). Your gold is rusty and desperate. When your QB is forced to be a QB, your number is as good as up.

    MM says we were 1 play away!

    Time to look at your play calling coach!

    Lets face it, this loss hurts worse than any other one this year.

    The defense can’t stop the run, plain and simple.

    The offense can’t protect AR.

    What’s the answer?
    Time to clean up house a little and get players that can and will do what their paid to do!

    Plain and simple!

    At Smelly I understand Packer D sucks but you won by 3 points against a D that probably couldn’t stop most high school teams sadly. But you talk about Packer fans, I went to the Candlestick game and talk about fans in S.F. a bunch of foul mouth HOOD RATS drunk off there BUTTS 49er Fans are as bad as Oakland fans a bunch of PUNKS. And that’s right I am from California. So I have seen it JERK!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait until the Hawks kick your Butts!

    This team was a joke on defense all year. I know people are going to say “there were people injured blah blah…” they we horrible last year and the year before. So 2014 another disappointing year to watch the defense play like garbage. AND!!!!!!! Our coaches being out coached again. Thank you everyone see you next time.

    this team has lots of talent,,,,problem is everybody gets hurt and misses games,,,they need to stay healthy,,,on to the draft,,i say we need offensive lineman and a couple of secondary playmakers

    the packers took a lot out of the 49ers,,,,the panthers will finish them off,,,,,i don’t see anybody going to seattle and winning anyway,,,it just feels like its their turn

    What is wrong with McCarthy and his clock management? Game after game same O Same O. He needs to hand the play calling over to someone else along with clock management!

    Bill from Canada started this out so well and expressed the situation perfectly. With major help, we made the playoffs, but were killed by injuries. Has everybody forgotten that, apart those injured in the game, Matthews, Hayward, etc. were out? Defending against SF with 2nd and 3rd stringers and stopping them in the red zone multiple times: people want to fire Capers??
    TT will draft and recruit some D material this offseason and we will start beating the Niners again next season.
    There is much to be grateful for.
    GO PACK!

    Well I’ve heard all the interviews and watched all the video’s.

    I have concluded that there is just too much complacency on this team. despite toe efforts of all due to injuries!

    Everyone has all the same excuses why they didn’t get it done!

    Time for some heads to roll and some major shaking up of the coaching staff.

    Just tired of all the excuses, they came into our house and beat up on our butts, and we let’em do it!

    Plain and simple, tired of all the excuses, time for some fresh thinking on the coaching staff and new talent on the field.

    there is no way we will EVER make it to the super bowl again. I said last year and the year before that this Defense sucks.

    ohhhhhhhh and also with a couching staff that gets constantly out coached.

    Move the Packers franchise out of the stix and give it to a respectable city (like LA) everyone out side that backwater bumhole has heard of.

    How many foreign tourists does Green Bay entertain in a year? I would imagine none since no one has heard of the place outside the USA.

    LOL

    Los Angeles Packers (to be changed after a ballot to something more decent)

    I couldnt be prouder of any Packer team. The boys left everything on the field. Hawk player of the year. Aaron MVP again. Jordy most improved. Dom Coach of the Year. The job this squad did is nothing short of miraculous. I cant wait till the OTA’s.

    9ers love to live in the past, remember this one:

    “Niners lineup for the field goal.. aaaaaaannnnnd touchdown Seahawks”

    9ers are truly a team of destiny. Destined to be teased with Superbowl hopes to have it snatched away by a Better Bird

    I really appreciate how hard all of the coaches and players worked this season. They deserve every penny they are paid.
    They added a tremendous amount of enjoyment to my life. I love the game of football and would not want to be a fan of any other team. PACKERS TEAM 93, LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! THANKYOU!!!
