Well, that stunk. But, the good news is that the San Fransisco 49ers are one of the best teams in football, and that even though we played poorly for the vast majority of Sunday's game, we lost by one score and had a very good chance to tie the game in the 4th quarter. Obviously, most fans thought the Packers were the best team in the league headed into the year, but the defense doesn't look improved. We'll have a lot of not so nice things to talk about, but if we beat the Bears on Thursday, all will be forgiven. Here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.

This is fair, but then again, the 49ers stop elite backs in their sleep. That doesn't explain other shortcomings of the team, however.
