    49ers don't play in the snow, but we do. I don't think the Niners would be able to handle it in Lambeau snow or not, considering how Washington could have easily came back and beat them had they had a quarterback.

    I don't think bad weather favors any particular team. Once the teams get going it just becomes another element you deal with and forget about.

    As long as all the Packers games are at home Im good. We have an excellent team and I have a feeling they are just getting started.

    Two things I want to point out from your post.
    1) Yes the Pack does practice inside. However they do turn on the AC in winter. Or whatever it is that makes the place really cold.
    (Since they do not want to cause any damage to the sacred, fragile frozen tundra, last season they made a special practice trip to the Metrodome when the roof caved in and snow was on the field. As you can see, it helped.)

    2) During the season A-Rod, (As I call my boy since we are on a first name basis together even though he doesn't know my name, yet. I'm working on that.) lives in Green Bay as well as all the other players during the football season. (I don't think he commutes to SD right after every game. Does he?)
    So he should be used to the cold Wisconsin winters by now.

    One thing I want to point out. The frozen tundra is not frozen. It's heated from underneath and the heat is turned on during the games. Any Packer fan worth their salt knows that.

    Second, no team went to he Metrodome after the roof caved in. It was deemed unsafe to be in and the only people allowed in were worker. Nice try though.

    I'd actually argue Drew Brees would be better adapted to play us in January compared to Alex Smith. Stronger arm in bad weather would be helpful. Well Giants at 49ers next week so we get to see how each team plays against elite NFC competition.

    Define "Bad Weather." Rodgers historically has had some of his best games when it's ridiculously cold, and yesterday he threw for 276 yards and 4 TD's in the rain against San Diego.

    I would love to see a rematch from 2007... If we were to win it would take away the sting from that 2007 loss

    I thought I said it before... actually I know I did. But that's OK.

    And folks, I'm well aware of the heating system below the field. I've been cheering for the Pack since the 70's!!! If I'm not mistaken, the Bears have the same thing.

    Here's a good example of what I'm talking about.

    Yup. Giants @ 49ers next week
    49ers @ Ravens on Thanksgiving
    Steelers @ 49ers in week 15

    The Niners will have plenty of chances to prove to football fans that their contenders or pretenders. We'll see.

    And how 'bout that Thankgiving day lineup?!?! Can you ever remember a better schedule for great football on Turkey Day? I'm stoked about it.

    You know the TV drill.
    Showing the same old Ice Bowl QB sneak replay at least 30 times like they always do for every Packers playoff at a winter Lambeau.
    And then showing the high lights from '07.
    I wanna hear the commentators going nuts for Aaron like they did for BrINT.

    Yep, can't wait for the Dolphin - Cowboy game. Probably take that time to get back up north to hunting camp to watch the nightcap.

    Doesn't he have a place in Suamico, too? My dad says that he comes into his work during the summer occasionally.

    Holy ****... that is a crazy schedule for the niners.

    Man if they are able to win 2/3 of those games... watch out

    Everyone who's not from Wisconsin is wondering, "What the hell kind of name is that and how do you pronounce it".

    Something I hadn't realized until checking out the Giants more closely. The Giants have actually played more NFC West teams so far than the Niners have.
    They beat the Lambs 28-16.
    They beat the Cards 31-27.
    And they LOST in their own house to the Seahags 25-36.
    They've also lost the Redskins and just barely beat the Dolphins by 3 points.

    I don't see any signs of an elite team there. Hopefully the Niners are taking the Giants far more seriously than I am. I think you're far more likely to see the Cowpukes or Beagles get to the playoffs.

    They've got 5 potential losses coming up. I think they'll be lucky to get a wild card.

    I think the Giants right now beat the 49ers.

    I'm actually a 31 year old female. ;)

    BTW my gut says Giants right now and I have to start trusting my gut more, which has been more right then my head latley. Also, the Niners won't go 15-1 either will they?

    A Giants fan buddy of mine told me before the Pats game that the Giants would beat the Pats/Niners. I might have to trust him but I will talk to him more soon.

    OOPS! Sorry!!
    I'm trying to stay somewhat conservative and not act like a total homer by saying the Niners will go 15-1... but they could... maybe... possibly. It's more likely the Pack goes 16-0.

    Honestly, I don't believe the Giants have a prayer this weekend.
    The Ravens and Steelers make me a little nervous.
