49ers vs. Packers Twitter reactions: DOOM edition

It wasn’t surprising to see a shorthanded San Francisco squad get manhandled by Green Bay.

The San Francisco 49ers snakebitten season had yet another low point. The Niners were dominated from the opening kickoff, losing 34-17 to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

San Francisco was missing basically all of its top players. Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle officially went on injured reserve earlier in the week, while Trent Williams, Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne missed the contest after they were put on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Nick Mullens got the start at quarterback with Garoppolo out and had a rough game. The usual backup went 22-of-35 for 291 yards, a TD and an interception. The offensive line had a tough time protecting Mullens’ blindside with Williams out, as the Packers routinely got to the quarterback.

The defense didn’t do much better. Davante Adams lit up the 49ers’ secondary (which star receiver hasn’t this season) for 173 yards and two scores. Rodgers finished the day 25-of-31 for 305 yards, four touchdowns and no picks.

Here are some Twitter reactions to San Francisco’s blowout loss:

The first offensive series went about as expected when you’re missing every skill position player:

Thanks for the reminder, Nick Wagoner!

Biderman nails it!



Here is one positive highlight from the first half:

Lowder knew that River Cracraft’s first career TD wasn’t going to stand before the officials did:

The 49ers desperately missed left tackle:

The Packers got some luck before going up 14-3, but it wouldn’t have mattered if the refs called it right.

A gif that is used often, but is usually totally accurate.

Yes, Chris, it does feel like it happened a quarter of a century ago:
