The San Francisco 49ers unleashed their nuclear powered offense Saturday night and blew the Green Bay Packers to smithereens. NFL pundit Ron Jaworski predicted that Jim Harbaugh would unleash Colin Kaepernick in the playoffs, and yea verily it came to pass.
In a performance straight out of the comic books, Kaepernick turned in the greatest one man show ever seen in the playoffs. The 49ers began the year beating the Packers in Green Bay and have now started the playoffs by destroying them and burying once and for all the bad memories of the heartbreaks that franchise inflicted on the 1990’s 49er teams. So long, Curse of Brett Farve. Hello twenty-first century.
49er OC Greg Roman finally took to heart the thousand unmailed critical letters from our own Berger, ditched the bunched 21 offensive package, spread out the field, and let the WRs and RBs run wild. And the QB ran around a bit, too. The 49ers completely dominated the Time of Possession, leaving the Packer defense exhausted and helpless by the fourth quarter.
A major, eye-opening victory. By Sunday night, only three other teams will be in the running for the Super Bowl. As long as none of them has a box full of kryptonite, you’d have to like the 49ers’ chances. And since we’re now officially on the Disney Channel, I ran out this morning and grabbed the first star I saw. Because When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true!
