Welcome back, 49ers football! The San Francisco 49ers are back as they host the Green Bay Packers in a huge home opener. This is the third time in a year that these teams are squaring off. You'd think that would mean the two teams know each other well, but this offseason has seen quite a bit of change. The Packers loaded up with a pair of rookie running backs. The 49ers are continuing to figure out what their offensive attack will bring to the table each week. It should be fun to see how it works.

This is your first quarter game thread. We'll have a new thread each quarter, and then a recap thread shortly after the game is over.

Site Decorum: It's off for game threads. No personal attacks, but swearing is allowed (try not to go overboard).
