Post Game Thread: Green Bay Packers (2-1) at San Francisco 49ers (2-1)
By - nfl_gamethread
49ers score with 37 seconds left. A million people at home who've seen this one before- "thats too much time"
Dad texts me after the 49ers score (he’s a niners fan). “37 seconds it too much time. Rodgers deep ball to adams and Crosby to win it” well it was 2 deep passes to Adams but yeah
"I've seen this episode before"
Fuck, good game outside of anything wearing zebra stripes
Yeah that was so terrible officiating. On both sides, those PI calls were very suspect. And not calling the helmet to helmet?
Prime time games have been fucking crazy
Yeah even as amazing as the games have been, the best part was for sure the Brady-Patriots promo. That shit was comedy gold of the highest quality
All that for it to end 35-13 or something stupid
Can’t give Rodgers more than 30 seconds man, unreal
Gotta leave the clock at 00:00 for Rodgers
lions fans would like to have a word
LMFAO lions keep catching strays after already taking an L
How many L's are in the word "Lion," anyways?
Even then it doesn’t always work
Never give the bad man more that two seconds. Spectacular game besides the ref bullsh.
The Lions have given him 0 secs and he's still won.
didn't we beat them like 4 games in a row without ever leading when the clock hit zero or something like that?
Two years ago you lead for exactly 00:00 seconds all year and won both games, yes I wanted to kill myself
This ending reminded me of the Cowboys/Packers playoff game in the 2016-17 season when we left the bad man with too much time on the clock. When will the league learn?
Had that as my phone screen for like a year lmao. Best post on our home sub.
Unless you’re the lions, then 0:00 is too much time
Talk about kicking a man when he’s down
We all knew it...
Too Much Time For Rodgers
I knew what it would be and I loved it
I hate my life
My favorite thing about this pic is that he looks like "we have Arron Rodgers at home".
Let's update that... https://i.ibb.co/WsfZY9t/FB-IMG-1632714635231.jpg
All I wonder is how much I have to give up to make just a *fraction* of his pacing skills…
in the future teams should just send the house.
"dime set, nickle set, 20 sec, 40sec, don't care pack by 3" - Aaron Rodgers when opponent gets the go ahead score
To be fair, the Cardinals tried this in 2015, which I respected them for, but then Rodgers managed to unleash a fallaway, 60-yard bomb while moving to his left. I still wish McCarthy would’ve just gone for 2 after that.
Terribly soft defense at the end there too
That's defense you play if you're up 7. Not up 3. Up (Less than) <3, you have to play normally.
Up <3 to you too 😘
*SCREAMS IN MAH KNEE*
Rodgers looked ice cold when they zoomed in on his face during that final drive. He knew they were gonna get that shit
Did you see him pause when he spiked it? He could have spiked it at :05 but he just stopped and waited for a second. Ice cold
NFC north teams having nightmares seeing 37 seconds on the clock needing only a FG
I was begging Juszczyk to fall down at the 1 and run some more clock even though I know it doesn't make sense
Anything more than 0.1 seconds is asking for trouble.
Kyle Juszczyk scoring a little too early to take the lead in a prime time game? Never seen that before
Yooo I had intense deja vu when he scored that lol
Yeah, when he was fighting for the endzone I was just like fucking let him in.
Tom Brady: “I try to put the ball somewhere safe for my receivers.”
Jimmy G: “Some of you may die. That’s a risk I’m willing to accept.”
Tom Brady most games: I got your back bro, I’m not going to lead you into harm.
Tom Brady today: I’m about to end half the team’s career in garbage time.
He’s fucking lucky Gronk and Gio made it out clean today.
It was so weird watching him throw like that today. I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw it out of the blue.
Having Donald looking at you with those hungry eyes of his will do that to any man.
FIRE MATT NAGY!!!
Cointerpoint: Extend Matt Nagy!!!
Give him the Gruden deal
Man these Primetime games have been something else this year
Which is weird cuz TNF is supposed to be the crutch for lower franchises and everyone’s been delivering, maybe the crowds are playing into it now
Not Panthers vs Texans
7/8 prime times being good is not bad
I'll take 87% good primetime games every fucking time
The hit rate on good football in these games has been outrageous. Great for football, terrible fir my sleep habits.
All that pent up rage haha
Aaron Rodgers just needs to play like there's 37 seconds left of the clock for 60 minutes
Only if the 49ers would play defense like there’s 37 seconds left.
As a Lions fan, the second SF scored with 37 seconds, every fiber of me said "too much time for Rodgers."
It's at least comforting to know he does this to *everyone.*
60 yards in 30 seconds man fuck
Bears couldn't do it in 60 minutes.
Oooooh yeah daddy! Just like that. Who's been a naughty offense?
Most gained by the man that got knocked the fuck out
The doctor coaxed Davantes ghost back into his body with some straight voodoo
You don’t celebrate when there’s 50 seconds on the clock and that bad man only needs a field goal to win. You don’t.
Floats it... Cobb!
You're not fucking sorry.
“How could you not be romantic about football?”
Aaron you son of a bitch. Crazy game.
How do you not triple team Davante lmao
They already bashed his brains and he still wouldn't stay off the field
Skeletal memory at that point, cause homies brains were bleeding out his ears and was just moving by shear power of the holy ghost
In the postgame interview, he said he was all good. He said he couldn’t catch his breath, so he walked off. I’m glad he’s alright. I watched our season flash in front of my eyes.
Legend says if you do that Richard Rodgers spawns in the end zone and catches the ball
Wait both teams are allowed to score points?
It’s legal if you aren’t the jets
The yellow flags are points, right?
Insulting defense by the 49ers on that final drive.
Played way too soft on that last completion. We all know where the ball is going, put someone underneath
Edit: [WHERE IS THE UNDERNEATH MAN](https://twitter.com/sharpfootball/status/1442331250581192705?s=21)
They took out our pass rushers and had more d backs just to… let them pass deep twice in a row?
I miss Saleh
Me 🤝🏻 Rodgers
Only needing 30 seconds to get the job done
Niners were *sooooooo* close they just left Rodgers too much time man.
Isn’t that some shit though? 31 seconds and your scared for your life as the defending team.
When the other team has no timeouts too
It’s wild, his ability to just turn it on when he really needs it is pretty insane to watch. Sign the man for whatever he wants.
Even 0:00 is too much time for Rodgers
“He turned 32 yesterday does he have a vintage moment in him”
"Rodgers to Rodgers"
Every 32+ year old was like 👁👄👁
i'm almost there bb
Don't do that to yourself, my guy. Come on...
You guys got to be part of an iconic NFL highlight for all time.
Rodgers is still Rodgers man, 37 seconds with 0 timeouts is a win vs 95% of QBs
Old man Brady, Rodgers and Mahomes. There's a reason the Ravens went for it on 4th down in their own territory and didn't give Mahomes the chance and we've all seen Rodgers and Brady over the years
Heck, Mahomes came close to a hail mary today
[They celebrating with ~~1:13~~ 0:37 in the fourth lmao](https://i.redd.it/fn0i2ef6l0rz.jpg)
This will never get old. Fucking legendary
They played Prevent D. These coordinators never learn
Prevent defense prevents wins
Prevent D when FG kickers can make 50 yards consistently is just dumb. You pretty much tell defense to sit back.and hope for a mistake by the other team.
Teams that aren't the Vikings can make 50 consistently*
It wasn't prevent, we didn't even have 4 corners to put on the field.
It was shit though I grant you that.
Refs were so bad they had Lions fans cheering for the Packers to win
Were the officials today on drugs or something? Between this and the Lions blunder I have to wonder if they've secretly been replaced with aliens who don't understand the rules of football.
Now I'm not a tin foil hat almond eating conspiracist nut, but I honestly feel like the NFL is dipping their big hairy toe deeper and deeper into the water with how much they can get away with. I mean that's really the only thing I can think that explains how fucking awful it's been and why it seems to be getting worse.
C'mon ref award us the 3 points from Crosbys kick
Surprised they didn't flag him for taunting while Crosby was walking around with those big ol' balls
I have questions about the forward pass
Holy fuck lol
Packers MVP was the doctor that cleared Adams.
Doctor: Davante you're taking a concussion test.
Doctor: Davante what's your number?
Doctor to trainer: Tell the coaching staff he's good to go.
How many three fingers am I holding up?
This mans a genius. Put him back in the game he’s fine
Davante Adams apparently the GOAT at taking concussion tests while concussed
Davante they typpa guy to study for the concussion test 😤
It's like a polygraph, you gotta fuck up the baseline so your lies and truths are indiscernible
He's giving his post game interview right now. Going on 4 minutes in. He is eloquent, focused, normal. Obviously that doesn't mean he didn't have a concussion, but typically concussions give some symptoms.
MASON SAID WE AIN'T LOSING TONIGHT
Man, the unsung heroes tonight are the offensive line: two rookies, a second year guy in his second start, and the third string LT.
Also despite penalties, Stokes looked pretty damned good. Should never have to give that job back to King.
Remember when Aaron Rodgers sucked in Week 1? Yeah me neither
Man, the number of people in our sub that were crying that we didn't trade him this off season was unreal. I think some of those dweebs actually thought he was washed and we should've started the rebuild.
I went to the Packers sub once like 5 years ago and noped the fuck out.
Can’t stand all the casual fans who bitch and moan about Rodgers, but never actually took the five minutes to listen to the guys press conference. The first time I ever agreed with Collinsworth was pregame when he said Rodgers gave the most straight up and honest press conference he’s ever seen.
we're down to 5 undefeated team, and they're the Panthers, Raiders, Broncos, Cardinals and Rams, just as we all expected
FOOTBALL’S BACK BABY
I would have maybe guessed Rams at this point in the season. Good ol NFL
Things everyone knew:
-Packers would give up the lead
-49ers left Rodgers too much time
My 49ers roommate was celebrating after they took the lead and all I said was “too much time” and he said “bitch ass Rodgers can’t do shit.” The rest was history.
It’s a tale as old as time and yet they never learn.
Oof he went with “Bitch Ass” Rodgers doesn’t care for that one.
A Cardinals fan would know... too bad our defense was ass in that game and immediately folded in overtime.
We didn't deserve this game, we got bailed by the refs and still lost. It is what it is. Ggs packers i'm sorry the refs sucked.
Garroppolo fumble was monumental
Lombardi actually reached down from the sky and said fuck you.
I still can't believe that missed targeting on Adams.
We did not deserve to win this game from the bad play to the bad officiating to leaving too much time on the clock. Gg Packers hope we never meet in the playoffs cause I dont trust playing that hippy fucker
Gotta wonder how loose the NFL can play with shitty bad calls with gambling being such a huge push for the game.
Money makes bets
Money buys ads
Money buys results
Line was Packers +3.5....
Ha-ha, Kyle Shanahan! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is “Never get involved in a land war in Asia,” but only slightly less well known is this “Never give Aaron Rodgers the ball with time left on the clock”!
[Even 0:00 on the game clock is too much time](https://streamable.com/g5dv)
Sweet lord I love having NFL back
No one will ever touch Brady’s accomplishments, but I need 1 QB for 1 game…. I’m taking Rodgers every single time.
(Edit: I forgot this account isn’t flaired, I’m a Falcons fan so no allegiance either way).
Couldn’t cover a dude who should be in concussion protocol for the last 40 seconds lol
The concussion made him too unpredictable to cover
WE STOPPED THE STEAL. WE WILL HOLD OUR CONFERENCE AT FOUR SEASONS LANDSCAPE
I wanna throw a shout out to Bojorquez, GB finally has a punter that can flip the fucking field when we do have to punt. It is such a nice breathe of fresh air after watching JK Scott continually give the other team the ball on their 45 yard line.
>*How can you not be romantic about football?*
I don’t think we’re really appreciating how perfect that final drive was. Holy shit that execution was absolutely flawless.
Both teams can still win if Jerome Boger gets fired
I see why the NFC North hates the Packers so much. They're the only ones who win in spite of getting jobbed by the refs.
They hated him because he spoke the truth.
someone explain to me why the hit on Adams wasn't a personal foul, make it make sense.
Refs didn't see it and for some reason they refuse to implement the review for penalties like that like they have in college
Honestly it is the easiest thing to keep limited, too. Don't allow coaches to challenge, make it booth initiated, limit it only to player safety flags. Like what is the downside to that?
They don’t care about player safety, just the illusion of care.
The official explanation on the broadcast was "the ref wasn't looking at it"
I was laughing my ass off on that, how is that an excuse?
Well the refs are absolute garbage. That's why.
Ref no see good
"The ref didn't see it, it's something new they're trying this season" is what I heard.
The refs didn't see it
If only we had the technology to see stuff from different angles, fuck
The ref wasn't in position. Legit this is what their idiot expert said, not that it was or wasn't but the ref wasn't in good position
These refs sucked. Plain and simple
two best kickers in the league just breaking fucking hearts today
I hope Davante Adams is ok. Mans was laid out like a dead man for a sec there.
That’s the 3rd time it’s looked like he died on the field, seems like the dudes got airbags inside his skull
This sport is becoming increasingly more difficult to watch with the way that refs continue to fuck up and control the flow of a game. The results are just straight up losing their integrity and nothing changes. Also, Devante Adams got knocked the fuck out and should not have been let back into that game...
They call it a “game of inches” but not enough attention is given to the way these calls sway outcomes. I completely agree.
They call it a game of inches but those inches are at the mercy of the eyes of a 55 year old part-time lawyer spotting the ball.
How about the roughing the passer call on Alexander? That's about as weak as it comes.
And I agree... I've been having a harder time getting into these games. Some of these taunting calls are hilarious.
or the eric stokes PI? Or the early 3rd down conversion? The list goes on
Lmao and they got what they wanted is the worst thing. Two lead changes in the last minute of the game. All about the ratings baby
Unfortunately you’re right. That’s all they care about
Maybe don’t play so goddamn soft when they only need 15 yards
You're allowed to make game winning field goals??
Anyone who says Rodgers doesn't care about Green Bay and he's a drama queen that is just playing for a check and can't wait to leave.... Watch that replay of him reacting to that kick.
Or him reacting to that missed connection with Adams in the end zone. Dude was gutted.
Fuck the refs, that is all
I know im being that guy. But, that whole game was awful. Teach these refs what PI is. Teach them what grounding is. Teach them about roughing the passer and helmet to helmet hits. God what a mess the whole game was.
Eric Stokes got called for PI for…hurting someone’s feelings? I genuinely don’t even think he touched the guy he was covering.
Davante loses 3 months of his life with a visible head shot - refs allow it.
My QB is the goddamn devil I love him
It baffles me how these are the best refs we can get for the world’s most lucrative sport in it’s premier time slot. Shameful officiating all around in this one.
The packers had to play the 49ers and the refs and they still managed to win. Lord have mercy on us.
- Sincerely, the rest of the NFC north.
All in all what a great fucking day of football.
