I’m going to start this by saying: LETSSSSSS GOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
What a day in Wisconsin sports history.
The Green Bay Packers (2-1) needed a Mason Crosby 51-yard field goal at the buzzer to beat the Santa Clara 49ers (2-1), 30-28, at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
How can you not be romantic about football.
Mason Crosby, Mr. Reliable, is never allowed to retire. Give me a reason not to have a kid just so I can name him Mason.
There was the Ice Bowl, and then there was Yosh Nijman’s first start. Cherish this moment, Packers fans. One day you’ll be telling your grandkids where you were when the Legend of Yosh Nijman was born…
The Green Bay offensive line I thought played very well tonight, which I’ll admit I was pleasantly surprised to see considering they were going against a very good 49ers front seven.
The O-line allowed only one sack, and didn’t allow Nick Bosa to get the sack. Took all 11 on offense.
Green Bay’s defense surprisingly played alright. We all knew Joe Barry vs. Kyle Shanahan would be a mismatch!
Don’t let the finish of the game distract you from how terrible the NFL refs were. The officiating was absolutely horrendous, which seems to be a common theme in the NFL. But I’m glad to see that Jed York’s check cleared. As a friend said in a group message, “I think Fauci is involved.”
Matt LaFluer needed to lose his mind in his postgame presser on these officials, because they were pathetic tonight.
The 49ers were able to score in the fourth quarter on Mickey Mouse false flag manufactured drives.
One of these was called for a penalty and one of these wasn’t called for a penalty, I’ll let you guess which one wasn’t called:
The refs were going to call BS ticky tack penalties on Green Bay, but then completely ignore helmet to helmet when the 49ers hit Devante. Got it.
Helmet to helmet. Clear as day. Classic definition of the rule. Dangerous. Exactly the hit they want out of the game. And no call.
Devante Adams is a beast. Tae had a heck of a game. Do you know how tough you have to be to take a vicious hit in the head, come back in the game and then catch two huge passes in the middle of the field with the game on the line?
Devante Adams had 12 receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown. Oh, and he’s hanging in there, not that you care too much NFL Officiating.
Adams is so good it makes me want to puke my guts out. How’s that for some poetry?
The 25-yard pass play to Devante to start the game-winning drive was created on THURSDAY.
The Packers went 42-yards with no timeouts and only 37 seconds left on the clock to win on Crosby’s field goal.
How do you expect me to sleep after a finish like that?
That was an amazing comeback in the final 37 seconds. Unbelievable. The stuff of legend. Glad they have old reliable kicking for them, too. Could this be a springboard game for Green Bay? We’ll find out!
That’s how you save a Wisconsin football weekend!
I don’t want to oversell a Week 3 win, but beating a good football team in their home opener on a short week without a couple of your top players is worth celebrating, I think. It was a great team win.
The Packers will return home to Lambeau Field to host the Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) next Sunday, October 3. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:25 PM (Central Time).
