Green Bay Packers
Remember the old days–oh, about two months ago, when there was a raging debate in the Bay Area about who should be playing quarterback for the 49ers?
After dismantling the Green Bay Packers on Saturday, the 49ers find themselves back in the NFC Championship Game. With the Falcons holding serve against the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco will travel to Atlanta with one win standing in the way of both teams of a trip to the Super Bowl. By playing a Falcons team who ended the season as the number 1 seed, in the Georgia Dome, the 49ers will be the underdogs, but have to like their chances of pulling off the upset and moving on to the Super Bowl.
The game was close on the scoreboard for the first half, but in the second half, San Francisco dominated the Packers to set up their return to the NFC Championship Game to face either the Falcons or Seahawkss.

The 49ers’ front seven is one of the most brutish in the NFL, and just the sight of Aldon Smith or Justin Smith is enough to make a quarterback wince.
The former Super Bowl champion Aaron Rodgers and the postseason newcomer Colin Kaepernick will be in the spotlight and can expect to face tough defenses Saturday night when the Packers visit the 49ers in a marquee NFC divisional playoff contest.
With multiple Pro Bowlers on both sides of the ball, the match-up between the 49ers and Packers will not be lacking talent. Both teams are well coached, disciplined and hungry for a win. The difference in this game will come down to the attention to 3 key areas and some luck.
While most San Francisco police officers assigned to Saturday’s 49ers playoff game will be in uniform, the department said some won’t be so easy to spot.
