Packers fall to 49ers, 34-28: Complete stats here


 

The Green Bay Packers lost their 2013 season opener at San Francisco this afternoon, 34-28 – a game in which it seemed the Packers simply ran out of time.

While Aaron Rodgers had a good game (21-of-37 for 333 yards, three touchdowns and 1 Int.), but not one of his greatest, it was the 49ers’ Anquan Boldin who stole the day and killed the Packers (13 catches for 208 yards and 1 TD).

Even though the Packers defense was on the field too long and the time of possession was skewed badly in favor of  the 49ers, Green Bay was still in it right up until the end when they were left with fewer than 30 seconds to try to score the winning TD.

Who’s to say that if the referees had gotten the penalty call right in the first half when offsetting dead ball fouls should have given the 49ers a fourth down, that this game couldn’t have had a different end. But that’s pure speculation.

The 49ers clearly controlled the ball throughout the day and it was the big plays of Boldin that sealed the Packers fate.

With an 0-1 record, the Packers now come home to face Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins in their home opener next weekend.

    There was a time just a few years ago when this team was feared – Remember 15 – 1. Sadly, due to the obstinate decisions by management to only take one course of action in acquiring players to address obvious needs we have fallen to 2nd tiered status. Good enough to get into the playoffs only to get smoked by Top Tier teams. It appears we will never deviate from this strategy so we will never rise above this current level. A few star players with not enough of a supporting cast – O Line – D Backfield – Pass Rushers to be considered a serious Super Bowl contender. Too bad to be so close but yet so far away. Team looks exactly like it did last year other than losing a few more players through Free Agency. May have something in Lacy but no line to run behind will limit his effectiveness. Really wasting the prime years of Aaron Rodgers. Favre had a much better supporting cast than this thanks to Ron Wolf and he only got 1 ring.
