Cornerback Casey Hayward's recurring hamstring injury is so severe that he is expected to miss at least the Green Bay Packers' first four games. A source close to Hayward said the second-year player doesn't expect to play in the first month of the season.

The Packers secondary gave up 400 passing yards to Colin Kaepernick. That is insane. I believe I heard that this was Kaepernick's first career 300+ yard passing game.

For all the fuss that they made of the read-option, Kaepernick and his running didnt really have a huge impact like it did in the playoff game.

I think the league owes GB a dollar or two for the blown call Laughing

i see... so it was bad, just not that bad...?

quite the rationale there.

Very Happy

if Patrick Willis had done that to Rodgers, would you feel the same?

what i felt was really dangerous is after the lunge to, you know, his neck and head, he's dragging him down backwards on to his back.

that's not football, it's wrestling.

Matthews definitely has a fine coming his way, at least based on the precedent set by the league. Staley shouldn't have been penalized on that play. All he did is get up in Matthews face, that crap happens every play. Matthews punched him.

If Willis had done it to Rodgers, I'd expect the play to be flagged, but I wouldn't expect a fine.

What I meant by, "it wasn't that bad," is that it was bad enough to warrant a flag, but not a fine.

In my opinion.

In this picture, Kaepernick's foot has yet to hit out of bounds.



Clay is launching himself at Kaepernick, and Kaep is intent on making his way out of bounds, so I think an unnecessary roughness penalty is warranted. I just don't think there was anything that outrageous about it that warrants a fine. And I don't think he took him down by any extreme measures either. I don't know what you mean by "after the lunge to, you know, his neck and head, he's dragging him down backwards on to his back." He tackled Kaepernick. It's a tackle. The player goes to the ground when you tackle him. He didn't twist Kaepernick, or throw his body on top of him. It was a pretty textbook wrap-up, let your momentum and force take him to the ground as opposed to trying to injure him. Hell, he doesn't even put a shoulder pad into him, let alone his helmet.

You obviously disagree, just my $0.02. I don't think he'll be fined.

good point.

his entire body and the ball are out of bounds, but his foot is still two inches from touching the ground yet. a lunge is called for to make sure he doesn't float back in to the playing field and continue running.

my mistake.

Very Happy

Haha exactly, Kaepernick was obviously faking Matthews out and going to go back in bounds. Rolling Eyes

Whether Kaep is actually out of bounds or not is irrelevant GBPACKMAN. The rule states that if a QB has given up on the play and appears to be going out of bounds, the defensive player must lay off and not hit him. I don't like it, but that's the rule. Matthews will and should probably get a hefty fine.

The NFL now says it was the Packers, not the 49ers, who benefitted from the officials’ mistake on the play, because Staley shouldn’t have been flagged in the first place. The league office reviewed the play and determined that while Matthews was rightly called for a late hit on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, the official who threw the flag on Staley for getting in Matthews’ face after running over to protect Kaepernick should not have done so.

In other words, if the entire play had been properly called, it would have been first-and-goal for the 49ers at the 3-yard line on the next play. Instead, the officials made it tougher for the 49ers by making them re-play third down after the offsetting penalties. The officials erred in their enforcement of the offsetting penalties, which appeared to benefit the 49ers, but in reality there never should have been offsetting penalties to enforce in the first place. Only the Packers should have been penalized.

Some may say it’s a moot point because the 49ers scored a touchdown on that third-down play anyway. But either way, the league has confirmed that this play was botched, in more ways than one. And because the 49ers scored a touchdown, the two wrongs equaled a right for San Francisco.

The Packers will have a new return specialist when they return from their Week Four bye. Jeremy Ross, who returned kickoffs and punts for the Packers in the club’s first three regular-season games, has been released, the club said Monday.

Ross couldn’t catch a short kick on the run in Sunday’s loss to Cincinnati, setting up a Bengals touchdown in a 34-30 Green Bay defeat. Ross also fumbled a punt in the Packers’ divisional-round loss at San Francisco in January, leading to a San Francisco touchdown.

The 25-year-old Ross has returned six kickoffs for 75 yards and two punts for 20 yards this season.

Aaron Rodgers threw multiple interceptions in a regular-season game for the first time since 2010. He also fell into a heated exchange with his coach during Green Bay's 34-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Rodgers and Mike McCarthy were seen jawing in the second quarter after a seven-play drive for the Packers fizzled out at the Cincinnati 1-yard line, leading to a Mason Crosby field goal.

Rodgers, visibly unhappy at missing the touchdown, dug into McCarthy on the sideline as defensive lineman B.J. Raji calmly placed an arm between the two. Rodgers confirmed that play-calling was the issue, but said: "Yeah, I'm going to leave that between Mike and I."
