NFL Playoffs: Packers Vs Niners Wild Card Weekend Open Thread

This is the second game of Wild Card Sunday, as the NFC North champion Packers take on the fifth-seed Niners.

This game might have a little more significance for Bears fans, as the NFC North champion Green Bay Packers take on the wild card San Francisco 49ers. It's supposed to be cold and snowy and awful up at Lambeau Field, but there'd be similar snowy conditions if the game were in Chicago, so I guess we have no room to talk there.
