49ers throttling Packers, lead 27-0 at break

Getty Images

We’ve already seen one massive comeback this postseason, so nothing will be written in ink just yet but it certainly feels like Sunday’s NFC Championship Game will end with the 49ers celebrating on their home field.

Emmanuel Moseley intercepted Aaron Rodgers with a minute left to go in the first half and Raheem Mostert cruised into the end zone three plays later for his third touchdown of the game. That put the 49ers up 27-0 on the Packers and it’s hard to imagine the second half being anything other than an extended party for the Niners and their fans.

Even the things that haven’t gone well for the 49ers have silver linings. Tevin Coleman had to be carted off with a right shoulder injury, but Mostert has already run for 160 yards, which is the second-most by any 49ers player in a postseason game, to make Coleman’s absence an afterthought.

The record for a playoff game is 248 yards by Eric Dickerson and that might be in jeopardy as the 49ers figure to continue running the ball a lot in the second half. Jimmy Garoppolo only tried six passes through the first 30 minutes and he may not add too many throws to that total.

Rodgers figures to be more active, although one wonders how effective that will be against a 49ers defense that’s been impenetrable thus far on Sunday. The Packers have 93 yards, two turnovers and zero third-down conversions, which joins their leaky run defense as the leading reasons why the 49ers are on their way to a rout on Sunday evening.

  1. The Seahawks at least would have put up a fight and might even would have had a good chance to win the game. This is just an absolute blowout. Even worse than the first one. The Packers are not even close to the same level as the 49ers. Their defense is getting absolutely pushed around. Their offensive line has more holes than a sponge.

  2. As I posted after the Seahawk game, Packers better served losing that one in a close game, than being totally humiliated vs. SF. Total incompetence and totally exposed as a fraud team.

  3. i was on here every day last week.. said any packer fans that think they could win were delusional, that rodgers is garbage on the road against really good teams…..its great to be right.

    btw, why didnt rodgers launch a patented hail mary with 19 seconds left? where are all the packer fans saying they would be in super bowl 54? where are they?

  4. No doubt, my Pack are being killed… not throttled, by a vastly superior team. Enjoy yourselves tonight Vikings fans.

  5. Rodgers is so mad! Its not so much him realizing he choked yet another playoff game. You can see it on his face. He resents having wasted his entire career in the cow town that is Green Bay. Favre knew it, Rodgers now knows it. Pretty sad. Well at least Favre got a chance/lost, with a 2nd SB appearance. And Rodgers will forever resent that! Delicious

  6. The cheese has hit the fan. It’s nice to see the media darling Packers get servred. Karma for piling on the Vikings last week.

  7. Rodgers has thrown a combined total of 4 touchdowns to 6 interceptions in career NFC championship games. That is all.

  8. What is it when it’s not better football? For better people?

    What are the people when it’s horrible football? Any idea?

    Get ready for the greatest comeback in the history of professional sports!

    sorry, they arent at lambeau or at ford field.

  10. This is what happens when the 3rd best QB in a division makes the NFC Championship game…
    ————————————————
    But DeMarcus Cousins already lost to the 49ers last week.

  11. If we can clean up some blocking problems & if we can clean up some tackling problems, & if we can clean up some turnover problems, & if we can clean up some run defense problems I think we can get back in this thing????

    Oh Shoot, nevermind we’re done.

  12. Josh Plum, are you – Seahawks fan, really inserting yourself in to the NFC championship Niner parade today by suggesting the Seahawks may have won this game? Are my eyes deceiving me right now. With the way the niners are playing, and how they’re physically dismantling, and throttling Green Bay (something Seattle obviously couldn’t do) the Seahawks would have had a 0% chance at winning today.

  13. The Packers came out like they didn’t want to be there. 49ers came out ready to play. This game was over before the 1st quarter.

  14. hey everybody, wait for it. packer fans will be on here saying “if it werent for 3 or 4 bogus calls, gb would have won” . i hope sf puts up another 160 on the ground

  15. Tevin Coleman having to be carted off for an arm injury might be the most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen.

  16. Don’t get me wrong— I despise the 49’ers on principle alone… but… there is just nothing wrong with watching Erin get his a$$ handed to him. Should have been the Hawks and Niners for another epic game. Good luck against the Chiefs.

  17. I can take solace knowing better things are in store for next year. They overachieved this year. Their coach out-coached the Viking coach, their quarterback outperformed the Viking quarterback, and the team outplayed the Viking team. All is not lost.

    But we already knew that.

  20. 49ers obviously match up very well against this Packers team. Mostert has been the niners best back this season by far I keep scratching my head why he doesn’t get 20 carries a game. 49ers- Chiefs is going to be an exciting SB.

  21. What a first half for The Faithful to enjoy! Sorry Cheesers.

    Looking forward to the match-up against Mahomes in Miami!

    And Viking fans, get lost already! You losers already got throttled last week, like the Cheesers are getting throttled this week, so you have nothing to brag about!

  22. Okay we need to be honest – the 3 best teams in the NFL this year – Baltimore KC and San Fran. Anybody cannot honestly argue that. On any given Sunday one team can beat another – but consistently these 3 have been the best. And it should be a good one on Super Sunday. I am still happy that the Pack made it this far. I am still happy that the Vikings are over 50 years and counting without a SBowl. The Bears still suck. Our biggest fault has been the inability to stop the run because our 2 inside D lineman and inside linebackers can not hold up. But I am happy with this season and hope we can at least play with pride in the second half.

    Erin Andrews has a better chance of leading a comeback here

  24. As a long suffering Lions Fan I find some small pleasure in seeing the Packers run into a Cheese Grater.

  25. Aaron Rodgers all time great. LOL. They should have a sideline coach trained in the Heimlich Maneuver, just for him. Regular season hero, postseason zero.

  26. I used to think Aaron Roger’s was one of the best quarterbacks in the league ( much like I said about Phillip Rivers about seven years ago.), but not anymore, (for either of those two guys.) Packers look so lost right now and have been dominated for over half the game this far. I respect Rodgers as a player buy this is a pathetic performance.

    So you are now happy getting smacked down in yet another NFC championship game, as long as the vikings aren’t there?

  31. Do you know what shocks me the most? I’ve become a believer.

    I think it’s unprecedented how much the ref’s are helping the Packers. Don’t you agree…..Viking fans?

    Congrats on your super bowls this year. I felt fun watching you celebrate them. Never mind the 3 butt whopping vs this year.

  35. Only way to beat the Packers is completely remove the refs from keeping it close and coming out with a roundhouse to the face of Aaron Rodgers.

  36. Pete Carroll is too outdated to actually gameplan week to week like this. Clara is obviously the class of the West now, Russell will just try to win week to week in the last 2 minutes til Seattle changes head coaches.

  37. Tevin Coleman having to be carted off for an arm injury might be the most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen.

    Most pathetic award goes to the Packers defense. Niners are going to run for 400 yards tonight

    You felt fun? Good for you. As a Viking fan, you should have fun consuming Packer crap sandwiches for the next twelve months. Does that sound like fun?

  39. Who is the backup might as well put him in. Aaron’s play is good ineffective and he looks scared.

  40. The Packers did beat the Vikings twice this year. But boy oh boy, the Vikings never got humiliated like this all year. Zero passes by 49ers that drive. Just shoved it down your throats. Only because Packer trolls have been bragging all year is this so enjoyable. They got throttled once by this team, and you thought you’d win today? Turns out, that last game was your good game.

  41. Goodnight Green Bay, your party is over. Chiefs vs 49’ers looks to be a good match up, sorry Packers fans but Green Bay doesn’t belong on this field tonight.

    Without Clete Blakeman that would be impossible.

  43. Stella – maybe it’s time for you to go to bed Aaron is choking and you’ve resorted to your typical fight picking

  44. I thought Pats/Jets rivalry was over the top, but Vikes/Packers are downright twisted. Nothing better to to up there in Canada, I guess.

  45. Still laughing over people saying the first game was closer than the score would indicate, and still others writing long articles to try and prop up that ridiculous theory. First game was like varsity scrimmaging JV. This is like varsity scrimmaging the freshman… backups. Just embarrassing them.

    When Troy Aikman says they have taken their manhood—-you know it’s bad.

  46. I thought Aaron was the best quarterback to ever play the game what happened? Where are all of the delusional Packers fans? He’s Brett Favre 2.0 that’s it end of story

  47. Hey Packer fans…you had the same record in the playoffs as the Vikings. Though the Vikings beat a better team than you did. Oh, and at least we showed up for our game against the 49ers.

    Nice season.

    I said all week Green Bay’s defense has a problem stopping quality RBs. But yall said you had a Super Bowl defense after the last game against Minnesota, who played a 3rd string RB…..lol

    How does that make Viking fans feel? them out of the playoffs, and surprise surprise, you needed help to beat the Seahawks at home. We both played 2 playoff games, and we have a better draft pick. Plus we played the 49ers way tougher than your joke of a team.

  54. Love seeing all the sour faces on the Charity Case sideline tonight. Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving team. Congrats to the 49ers for not even allowing the officials to dictate this game. Even they couldn’t have kept the Swiss cheese in this game.

    How does that saying go again? Da da da, No Pack No. Fitting.

    Looking like a Chiefs championship is imminent. Shanahan scheming vs. Mahomes? No chance.
    ____________________

    The Chiefs are going to get beat so bad in the SB they’re going to question themselves as to why they were even there! No one horse team can beat a real “TEAM”! The only way the SB would have been competitive is if they’d have let 2 NFC teams play.

  56. Favorite day of the year is Packer Elimination Day..usually celebrated in October, but better late than never…

  57. At least the Vikes gave fans a full half & a little more into the 3rd quarter.

    Can you imagine the vitriol if Kirk Cousins led his team to a 27-0 at half deficit with 2 fumbles & a pick on the stat line?

  58. Well, as talented as Aaron is, can we shut the book on the “Brady or Rodgers” debate now? It was kind of like the Manning vs Brady debate, which really wasn’t a debate at all. Same with Rodgers.
    I haven’t watched all the Pack games this year but it seems foolish to me when you have an arm like Rodgers to not let him sling it more and open things up.

  62. If Brady instead of Rodgers was the Packers QB, the result of this game would be the same.

    STOP JUST STOPP ENOUGH! The Packer played one more week than the vikings did. But true to Packers fan rationalization even when your squadloses you still think you win. If the Vikings had not beat the Saints, it would have been Saints playing today. Your squad beat a depleted Seahawks team.

    And stop with the rookie head coach thing, McCarthy maybe gone but its pretty much still the remnants of the McCarthy era.

    Packers lost by 17 so did the Vikes, there are no moral victories.
