And we're back for another exciting day of 49ers football. The 49ers are squaring off with the Packers at Lambeau Field where the 49ers haven't won since 1990. They came close last year but after giving up a big early lead, they couldn't force a late game stop to get the ball back and fell 30-24. The 49ers are not so much in a must-win game as they are in a "it would really be nice if they could spring an upset" game. A win over the Packers would go a long way towards the 49ers playoff chances. I know some folks (ok, a lot of folks) aren't excited about the 49ers chances, but given the nature of the NFC West, this is the year the cliche about any given Sunday has a whole lot of meaning.
