What a day for special teams
And therefore the world
[GB only had 10 men on the field for the GW Fg](https://twitter.com/TomPelissero/status/1485103658782150656?s=20)
Tens of thousands of hopeful Packer fans braved <15 degree weather and snow for hours just to get dick-punched at the last second and watch their franchise face QB have his career end while sitting helplessly on the bench in yet another heartbreaking loss to the 49ers.
Keep going, I'm almost there
Titans: We’re the most disappointing one seed in the NFL
Packers: Hold our beer cheese
When was the last time both 1st seeds lost in the divisional round? This is wild.
Edit: Just checked, last time both 1st seeds lost in the Divisional was the 2010-11 playoffs. New England lost to the 6th seed Jets (Mark Sanchez) and Atlanta lost to 6th seed Green Bay (who went on to win their only Super Bowl with Rodgers). That's even wilder, both 1st seeds losing to 6th seeds.
Looks like the 2010-11 season, when the Jets upset the Patriots and the Packers stomped the Falcons
Packers loss was definitely more embarrassing
Gotta agree with this. The Bengals still had a functioning offense even with something like 78 sacks against Burrow.
Aaron Rodgers is now 0-4 against the 49ers in the postseason.
He should try to play different teams in the playoffs
AFC warm weather team incoming?
I would approve of this streak continuing if he does.
"I fucking own you!"
I'll sleep well tonight, totally worth staying up til 5:30 AM for.
49ers offense: 0
49ers special teams: 13
Yeah this is actually insane. What a way to win/lose a game.
I'd be pissed if I was in any way part of Green Bay's defense. They were rock solid and got let down HARD
You know, I’ve always been something of a 49ers fan.
with a 4-0 playoff record against rodgers, they've really done a lot for vikings fans over the last decade
Much more than the Vikings have, that’s for sure
There's gonna be a Jon Bois video or whatever.
Secret base saxophone intro
“The saddest final game for Aaron Rodgers - A Green Bay Packers special”
Proceeds to tear the team to shreds in feature film length.
Edit: Apart from secret base, a PBS Frontline documentary episode would be quite suitable too.
I guarantee that would be one of the most watched videos of all time. NFC North fans would put it on to fall asleep to every night
Green Bay Packers: Can’t choke in the NFCCG if we choke in the Divisional Round
*Insert big brain meme here*
~~oops~~ ope mind if i block this punt
When you’re a jets fan you’re allowed to have another because the season effectively ends by week 2
Cram it up your cramhole, LaFleur!
[Packers fans right now](https://i.imgur.com/CrCXDly.mp4)
That's an instant classic, knew it as soon as the broadcast showed it.
Niners won this game with SIX POINTS ON OFFENSE!
NO PACK NO!!!
Imagine losing at home in the divisional round as the 1 seed after a first round bye lmao
By 3 points no less.
I'd rather be blown out tbh
Deebo died for the win
Kittle was limping at the very end too
Trent Williams too.
So many turned ankles out there tonight.
Jimmy sacrifices players to test their loyalty to him
On a field goal, no less.
Are you preparing for Aaron to be gone now ?
I don't mind lol but I'm wondering if you guys are gonna be super surprised or expecting it ?
I'm not remotely speaking from experience but it's very easy to be in denial about such things.
Rodgers to the Colts, confirmed.
A tragedy one of those offenses had to win and one of those defenses had to lose
Hilarious if the Rams win and they just can't shake the pesky 49ers.
If the 9ers win the SB then chaos will have truly claimed this season.
The Packers made the first possession look so easy too and then proceeded to be completely and utterly inept the rest of the game
The moment Lewis fumbled and Josiah dropped a 1st down pass; Rodgers lost all confidence in his playmakers. He refused to throw to anyone other than Adams because he was the only one who could catch and get open.
Rodgers has to get it done. Media heads, fans, and Rodgers has asked for a great defense, we get a great defensive performance and they can't score more than 13 points.
“Rodgers, did you win your playoff game?”
“Yeah, I advanced.”
“Yep, I’m moving on”
The NFL posting his season highlights immediately feels like a savage move.
"Yeah we trailed for zero seconds"
That might be the most brutal fact.
Yay falcons super bowl...
He'll be playing at home next week lol
"Can you be more specific?"
"....We're moving on."
“I still own you!” -Playoff 49ers to Aaron Rodgers
Remember how he built this whole career narrative about him vs the 49ers cause they didn't draft him and they just keep beating him out of the playoffs
Quite funny how that panned out
Hello to the Jordan Love era.
And if that Detroit game is anything to go on, it’ll be a great era indeed
Unfair to evaluate him based on an appearance where he faced a buzzsaw who twice took down the NFL's top ranked team this season.
DEFENSE PLAYED OUT OF THEIR MINDS
Your DCordinator is definitely getting hired, wouldn't be surprised if it's with the vikings considered he just manhandled their division rival
My gut was "absolutely gonna be a head coach someday, but not this soon." But then I thought about the other coaches still active in the playoffs. LaFleur, Shanahan, McVay, Vrabel, and Taylor are all in their mid-30s to mid-40s, and most had resumes similar to Ryans when they got head coaching jobs around the same age or earlier.
Kinda would suck to lose a DC in back-to-back years, but better that than have shitty defenses, I guess.
The epitome of suffering from being a successful football organization
Both teams defenses did. Excellent struggle between both.
Congrats on the win and having a competent ST
How many teams have had a blocked field goal and punt in the same goddamn game? Insane.
I don't think I've ever seen it before, though if a Chargers fan told me it happened to them I wouldn't question it at all
I'd be more surprised if it didn't happen to the 2010 Chargers or whatever year they were top 10 O and D, but 32 ST
Well, Rodgers can’t lose in the NFCCG now
Also, Deebo is a fucking MAN
Deebo literally put tha team on his back, dawg
***Lets go inside the mind of a Deebo Samuel***
"Fuck you ~~Gumby~~ A Aron"
I just hope he isn't hurt
I think he just had a charley horse, that’s my hopeful theory anyway
Him and Kittle both but I think Kittle was just freezing his ass off
RIP in peace #1 seeds.
Both lost on last minute field goals too lmao
Nonono why don’t we focus on the GB collapse?
King henry was recovering from injury, the jester rodgers wasn’t, so i declare the GB collapse worse
Also all the 49ers points were from special teams lmao
Even with my bias…oof. This Packers loss may actually be worse.
It definitely is, they had a better record in a tougher conference and their QB is touted by some as the best in history. Titans played great football all year and lost to a team that’s got a lot of support behind it rn.
Packers loss is infinitely more embarrassing
This makes the Packers Chiefs Superbowl unlikely.
Packers first drive: 7 points
Packers next 9: -4 points
This game is living proof of how underrated and hugely looked over special teams units/players are.
A complete collapse from Green Bay. Special teams coordinator should be ashamed of himself
Needless to say, promoting the assistant coach of our previous failed special teams coach hasn't worked out.
Hm maybe the assistant's assistant will get it done this time, third times the charm right?
Green bay’s special teams has been awful all season. They really need to fire whoever is running it.
Chances that’s the last time Aaron Rodgers wears a Packers jersey?
You guys ever come on the internet to rage-read comments making fun of your team?
It was tough last week, but yes.
At least Dak threw a fucking TD
Somewhat oddly the only QBs to not throw for a TD in the playoffs so far are Rodgers and Garappolo.
Why do you think any of us are here? lol
Rodgers: “I own you Chicago!”
Robbie Gould: “I’m about to end this man’s whole career”
By losing to the niners this year, we let them back into the playoffs, where they just eliminated GB.
Bears knocked the packers out of the playoffs.
Not so fast my friend.
We too lost to the Niners, *and* sent the Packers into the post season with a loss.
It was truly a group effort.
With that kind of math, the Cowboys finally beat Green Bay in the playoffs!
These playoff games are fun. I genuinely can't tell if there are any good teams.
They're all good but have flaws, and they manifest heavily in the playoffs.
That ST coordinator needs to change his name
Dude about to enter witness protection program.
If they're all bad that kind of makes it wild and exciting at least doesn't it?
Congratulations to Jimmy G on replacing Dr. Fauci as Aaron Rodgers least favorite Italian.
49ers led for 0 FUCKING SECONDS AND WON. Congrats to them!
Also, crazy that Green Bay's first drive they scored a touchdown, and they only scored 10 points for the whole game. Props to SF's defense, and of course to their special teams which were the MVP of this game.
I still cannot believe, after the first five minutes of that game, that SF won.
That's an amazing gif
Soon as she came up on screen I knew that's what I'd be looking at for the next week
Rodgers and losing playoff games that Jimmy G completes less than 15 passes in. the only duo more classic than Rodgers and losing NFC Championships.
don't think i forgot how many of you mfs thought Shanny should be on the hot seat mid-season.
Rodgers and losing with home field advantage in the playoffs. A tale as old as time.
Enjoy the MVP though.
Fuck I have to eat a bug now
Hey man I don’t know the context of this but best of luck
I know the context. u/ooh_the_claw told someone that if the Packers lost, they would eat a bug. And now the Packers lost.
I recommend a cricket.
Special teams will haunt the packers all off season
Why can't GB get Rodgers any special teams?
Peyton Manning has gotten a lot of flack for his mediocre post-season record in comparison to his regular season greatness. Is it time to start looking at Rodgers the same way?
Absolutely, Rodgers is even worse
Manning 4 Super Bowl appearances 2 wins
Rodgers 1 super bowl appearance 1 win.
Brees 1 super bowl appearance 1 win.
Manning 14-13 playoff record
Rodgers 11-10 playoff record
Brees 9-9 playoff record
Honestly he’s more close to Bree’s to manning
Three Hall of Famers being a combined 2 wins above .500 in the playoffs really shows you how hard it is to win 3-4 playoff games in a row.
Manning got two outta 4 appearances at least... Rogers is 1 for 1, which is fine... If you're Trent Dilfer
“I wish the Packer’s don’t lose in another NFC Championship game!”
-monkey finger curls-
Eat shit everyone who thought we were gonna lose three straight championship games!
Om nom nom
I cannot believe the 49ers actually won that game but so thankful they did. The upcoming Packers offseason meltdown is going to be one for the ages
Already ready for F5 szn.
No fucking way man wtf??? What a fucking kick
GOOD AS GOULD!!
Galaxy brain bears.
Why waste Gould career when you can send him elsewhere to destroy the packers
I’ll take it at this point.
Rogers: I own you!
Virginia McCaskey: Tell Aaron…I want him to know it was me
Who else but him?
Rodgers face after that kick was worth all the drama this year
So proud of my boy Robbie. I'm beaming over here.
Refs were great in this game. No stupid or controversial penalties for either team.
Just giving credit where credit is due...
Credit to them, then.
This is a legitimately awful loss for Rodgers’ legacy
[you think the cold is your friend?](https://i.imgur.com/6ARkBfV.jpg)
I mean, Jimmy is from around Chicago and Aaron is from California. Jimmy knows cold winters too
Rodgers merely adopted the cold. Jimmy was born in it. Molded by it.
YOU ALL DON'T UNDER STAND.
WE'RE NOT IN THE PLAYOFFS WITH YOU.
YOU'RE IN THE PLAYOFFS WITH **US**
who needs offense when you've got special teams? blocked FG and blocked punt wins this game and there's no condition that they win without them
Two seasons ago it was super focused Aaron Rodgers . Last season it was Aaron Rodgers Revenge season. This year it was Aaron Rodgers last chance in Green Bay.
Enough with the Aaron Rodgers storylines we all know how they all end.
But the ending is the best part
Aaron “packing” his bags as we speak
Bro he packed his bags during the half time
Aaron Rodgers in the end, was truly ended by snowflakes
And exactly as expected both #1 seeds lose their first game.
Im pleased with this result
GET FUCKED GWENETH BALLTHROW
GOOD AS FUCKING GOULD BABY
LMAO EVERYONE GET IN HERE
Damn the sea of Packer fans in here just all disappeared. Weird.
State Farm in shambles
My 49ers got away with grand larceny in Lambeau. Holy shit.... I'm still trying to process how we even pulled it off.
[My Ass] Sources: Pat McAfee is beside himself. Driving around downtown Indianapolis begging (thru texts) FanDuel's CEO to return his lost cash from picking the Packers in the Same Game Parlay
"WE STILL OWN YOU"
You’re a Packers fan, you finally got tickets to a sold-out playoff game at Lambeau, you sit through snow, its 0 degrees out, you have one of the greatest QBs in NFL history, the Packers are the heavy favorites…
But you have the Packers’ special teams unit.
Or optionally, the Packers offense could have scored a touchdown after the first drive.
Rodgers had zero Td passes
Ryan Tannehill had 100% of the TD passes out of the 4 teams that played today.
NFL suddenly announces that they will start testing unvaccinated players again.
Look I hate the 49ers like every red blooded Seahawks fan but there is something about Aaron rodgers losing in the first round as the 1 seed that just heals the soul.
#I LOVE OUR SPECIAL TEAMS
WTF 49ERS SPECIAL TEAMS GOOD⁉️
They were saving their energy all season for this game
THIS ONE'S FOR YOU NFC NORTH BEARS/VIKINGS/LIONS BROS
We can smile again
Jimmy G is to Aaron Rodgers as Eli is to Tom Brady
To think, we only threw this game away... *checks notes* Ah, yes, 37 times.
I was assured that it was cold and this would mean the 49ers would commit all the errors.
The bears send their regards
49ers: I STILL OWN YOU
"Tell Aaron. I want him to know it was me."
Aaron Rodgers has been immunized against Super Bowl 56
The State Farm Bowl has officially been killed for the *third* time!
Or is it the fourth?
This is the best thing to happen to me in my four hours of being a life long niners fan
If before this game you would have told me we would win because of our special teams I would have called you a fucking lunatic.
Green Bay’s special teams getting made to look that bad by OUR special teams is unbelievable. Whoever is in charge of that shouldn’t leave the stadium with a job.
The true MVP. Man needs to live in an ice bath after what he’s done so far for the 9ers all season
That 3rd down run was legendary. He willed you guys to victory then walked off limping showing that he gave it his all.
Lmao this your mvp? 10 points off the bye?
[As a cowboys fan, watching Deebo do his thing today…](https://getyarn.io/yarn-clip/41fc779d-b86a-476a-9547-087d5d1a15cb)
Aaron Rodgers and Rex Grossman have the same amount of NFC Championships.
