    "NFL quarterbacks combined for a whopping 63 touchdown passes on opening weekend, exceeding the highest total passes in any week in NFL history (58 in 2004 and 2007 late in each season)."

    Really devalues passing accomplishments for me. Comparing Marino's records to the current day is no more fair than comparing 16-game records to 14-game ones.

    During a third-and-6 scramble by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a muddled enforcement where the difference was milliseconds wound up being a difference of four points. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was flagged for a late hit on Kaepernick well after Kaepernick had stepped out of bounds. The two teams engaged in a small scuffle afterward, when the 49ers were hit with unnecessary roughness foul.

    Because the Matthews foul was two steps after the ball was dead, the fouls were on the dead-ball side of the ledger, and the proper call is to offset the two fouls and the down counts. That would have given the 49ers a fourth down and a likely field goal situation.

    Instead, Bill Leavy and the crew offset and replayed the down. The 49ers took another shot for the end zone, and they scored.

    The change in enforcement is clearly defined, but a foul a half-second earlier would have a different enforcement. If the Matthews foul was a live-ball foul with Kaepernick in bounds (a different penalty, of course), and it is paired with the 49ers post-play foul as part of the continuing actions, then the fouls offset at the previous spot. Third down. Literally two steps made the difference on enforcement.
    Weird set of downs......The Packers accept a 5 yard penalty on the prior play, even though it was 4th and 1. I didn't get the reason. Maybe SF goes for it, but not likely. Probably saves them 4 points.

    On the botched ref call, even though I'm a Packer fan, I thought Clay got lucky, because he looked more aggressive with Staley, and probably should have got another penalty.

    But yah, I thought it was 4th down when it happened, instead of replay of down.

    It's a passer's league. You can win a lot of games without much of a run game. The league has helped by throwing flags with regularity. Contact with a QB or Receiver is a no no! Therefore Ds have to make smart choices when defending.

    It's very tough to defend the pass.

    It makes me sad.

    I became a Bears fan in the 80's. Payton was the Offense, and a legend.

    The NFL seems to want a game that's all flash and no dash. Brings the fairweather fans in I guess. But the purists...

    Did anyone else think the passing numbers were even more inflated than usual this year? Ten 300 yard and three 400 yard passers to a measly two 100 yard rushers (only one of which is an actual runningback). Really? The top ten list of rushers for the week combined for a whooping three touchdowns. I know we finally have an elite passer but man, I really hate where the NFL is going.

    So.......with our Offense relying heavily on the hurry up, how to we counter the Giants' fake injuries? Many may do it, but the Giants have long done it more frequently.

    As a matter of fact, I think they looked a little shaky, especially for being at home.
    Not the only team that looked good, they were the only team that had a look that I worry that can beat us. With their weapons and defensive personnel they are the only team I don't want to see.

    I know any given week we can lose, but as long as we stay healthy I'm very confident

    Neither team really impressed as a whole. Boldin did as a player...So glad he wasn't a Raven Thurs night.


    Rodgers is gonna miss Jennings.
