Rodgers walks away with a Packers' win

If you go back in time on April 23rd, 2005, the 49ers drafted Alex Smith number one while Cal's Aaron Rodgers slipped to Green Bay at 24. Rodgers' reaction was that the 9ers would regret that decision.

That chip on his shoulder was huge in Sunday's 30-24 win over a 49er franchise he grew up idolizing. He got 344 yards passing and led the Packers to a 20-point, 4th quarter lead.

Credit Smith for bringing the 9ers back, but as has been the case four of the last five weeks, it's too little too late.

Really, it is a wonder the 9ers were able to make a game of it. Green Bay had 15 more first downs, better 3rd down efficiency, more yards and the time of possession was not even close.

Mike Singletary's squad is now 4 and 6.

"My first emotion is anger. It really is. Anger because it doesn't have to be like this. At the very start of this season, our goal was to win enough games to go to the playoffs. That is still our goal," said Singletary.
