Countdown Daily: Predicting Packers-49ers

By Mike Sando


Merril Hoge, Chris Mortensen, Mark Schlereth, Seth Wickersham and Keyshawn Johnson are picking the Green Bay Packers to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in the teams' divisional playoff game Saturday.

K.C. Joyner is calling the 49ers' offense overrated Insider while pointing to diminished run blocking, the absence of a downfield passing threat and questions on special teams in explaining why San Francisco is vulnerable.

What kind of respect is this for the team that stood No. 1 in ESPN's NFL Power Rankings three weeks ago?

ESPN's Tedy Bruschi and Herm Edwards made their Packers-49ers picks in the video above. One of them did pick the 49ers. I'll make my guesses Friday, as usual.
