Packers drop home opener, 30-22 to 49ers

The Green Bay Packers just lost their season and home opener to the San Francisco 49ers, 30-22. A lackluster performance by both the offense and defense, poor tackling, bad time management and play calling, as well as a more physical Niners team, led to the loss.

While the loss is bad enough on its own, the fact that Da Bearz, the Lions and the ViQueens all won today means the Pack now trail each of these teams by a game. Yes, it's only the first game of the season. But it's the principal of the thing, you know? And with Chicago coming to Lambeau five short days from now, the Packers have LOTS of work to do.

There might be more post-game analysis here tomorrow. Or not. Just not sure how much there is to say about a game this poorly played by the Packers. It's only one game. But if what we saw today persists through the's gonna be a long one.

Stay strong, Packer fans.
