Welcome to the first Monday of football season, where fans of most teams are left to either wallow in self-pity or get overly excited about a single win. Many Packers fans are in the first category, but I refuse to see only negatives in last night's game. We'll have plenty of analysis over the next day or two, but then it's time to start preparing for another playoff team next Sunday, so there's no time to wallow in sadness. Football rolls on!

This relates back to the illegal formation penalty to give MM a decision between a 4th and 1 or 3rd and 6. I'm not so sure I agree, but I'm not a head coach so who am I to judge?

Kaepernick does it again vs. Packers | ESPN
