San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers Recap

Take Aaron Rodgers number one overall in all fantasy football formats.  Yeah we said that.  And Rodgers looked good, granted, we all want Rodgers to look great, but he did put up 303 yards, on 30/44 passing, with 2 TD’s (JerMichael Finley, and James Jones) and 1 pick.  The overall production value of Rodgers looks fine on paper, but the on field performance does live up to those pedestrian Rodgers numbers.  The Green Bay quarterback was consistently throwing the ball into small windows, giving little chance for his receivers to make a play on the ball.  The Packer receivers seemed to do little in their route running to create space for Rodgers to throw to, and the running game was completely non-existent, Cedric Benson was held to just 18 yards.  As we remember the Pack from the last two years, lets not read to much into this game, the 49ers defense should end the year on top of the NFL and Green Bay can recover from one bad outing.

On the offensive side of the ball, 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, looked amazing.  Smith was able to move the ball around inside and outside the numbers and even able to make the ancient one, Randy Moss, viable with a 1st quarter TD.  He was able to move through his projections quickly and then threw the right ball, accurately.  For San Francisco, the big story was the running game.  the 9ers were able to carry the rock 32 times for 186 yards (5.8 ypc), this allowed them to keep the Green Bay offense on the sidelines for 33 of the games 60 minutes.  Frank Gore did his best to quiet his detractors by carrying the ball 16 times for 112 yards (7.0 ypc).  For Green Bay the road does not get much easier as they play the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football on NFL Network.  San Francisco has another high powered offense coming in next week when they face the Detroit Lions.
