Divisional Round - End of the Line

Well, that was fun while it lasted.

Yesterday, the Packers were eliminated by the 49ers in a blowout win at Candlestick Park. Not much in the way of uniform news from the game, other than the Packers wore the Sandy Hook Elementary memorial decal for the fourth and final time.

Interestingly, head coach Mike McCarthy wasn't wearing his S.H.E.S. pin.

The big uniform news for next season (so far) is the new rule requiring thigh and knee pads, meaning more players will look like Aaron Rodgers did yesterday:

I guess if I have to root for anybody left standing, it would have to be the 49ers. Not only is there somewhat less shame in losing to the eventual champion, but if Packers can't go all the way to New Orleans, at least the Braisher stripes can still be represented.
