Last night's game just highlighted what a great QB Aaron Rodgers is--the best QB in the NFL in my opinion. Here he is hobbled with a lingering knee injury (re-aggravated last week against the Lions), wearing a brace, throwing to rookie receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown, and having no running game to speak of. His two main receivers, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison, were out with hamstring injuries (although Davante Adams came up big) , and he lost his previous go-to guy Jordy Nelson to free-agency in the off-season, and yet he pulls off that 4th quarter drive that led to the winning FG. Just astounding. He threw for 425 yards and even managed to run for 34 yards on 3 carries, all on a gimpy knee.Robbie wrote: ↑Mon Oct 15, 2018 8:38 pm Amazing comeback by the Green Bay Packers on Monday night football. No wonder the 49ers have a terrible season. While Richard Sherman would is great if he is disciplined, he can also take careless and costly penalties and that was the case in which he took an extremely costly penalty that spoiled a sack on 3rd down which would have given the ball back to the 49ers and instead, led to the game winning drive.
I thought that 49ers' head coach Kyle Shanahan put together an excellent game plan. They looked good last night for a team missing its starting QB, and Shanahan put backup QB C.J. Beathard in a position to make plays that he was capable of. Without Rodgers' last-minute heroics, the Niners would, and probably should, have won.
