49ers score first, but Packers have an answer of their own

Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb AP

Packers-49ers looked like one of the most compelling games of Week One.

So far, it’s living up to the hype.

The 49ers struck first late in the first quarter with a 20-yard TD pass from Colin Kaepernick to tight end Vernon Davis to cap a 13-play, 83-yard drive that took nearly seven minutes off the clock.

However, the Packers would even things up quickly after that led by the passing of Aaron Rodgers and some excellent play from Green Bay’s skill-position players. First, Jordy Nelson beat Nnamdi Asomugha for a 31-yard catch along the sideline. Then, the Packers set up a screen to Eddie Lacy, who rumbled for 31 yards. Finally, the drive ended with a five-yard TD catch from Randall Cobb, who showed exceptional strength and athleticism stretching the ball just over the goal line.

After one quarter, it’s 7-7 in San Francisco, and goodness, the next three quarters should be fun to watch.

    Green Bay better get a hold of C. Mathews and knock some sense into him before an opposing offensive lineman ensures that Mathews has a short season of play. What a disgusting and unprofessional jerk that long haired maggot truly is. That late hit on the 49er quarterback was totally uncalled for.

    I am so embarrassed by the Packer dirty play that I will find another team to follow as a backup team. These jerks deserve to end up winless.

    Kaep is running scared today. He’s ran 3 times on 3rd down. Twice he ran out of bounds a couple yards short of the 1st down. The other time he slide two yards short of the first down. Last year he would have lowered his shoulder and picked up the first all 3 times. I think he realizes he needs to make through this year healthy before he can renegotiate his contract.

    Only the Giants may beat the 49ers, over and over and over and over and over and insert Super Bowl win and over and over again:)

    He’s not running scared; he’s just not running. Part of the plan.

    Matthews got his penalty – even Aikman who is NOT a Packers’ apologist – saw it was not so bad.

    Staley should’ve been ejected.

    Wait until Krapernick tries to run on Seattle.

    BOOM

    69ers follow their coach’s lead.

    Every play they’re whining and asking for flags.

    @laserw,

    Have fun with your new team, you bandwagon fan. Relax. It’s one hit. You act like there are never bad hits in this league.
