For a second season in a row, the Green Bay Packers were crowned Superbowl Champions without even having played a down in a regular season game.
San Francisco's defense brought all the pundits back down to Earth after their fierce and stifling defense contained Aaron Rodgers and his corps of elite receivers.
If you're saying "Contained? Rodgers threw for 300 yards!" you are, in a way, correct, but the 49ers were able to make a good situation out of what could have, and probably should have been, horrific for a Niners' secondary playing on the road.
How did they do it?
They made the Packers even more one-dimensional then they already were.
The Packers' top rusher?
Aaron Rodgers with 27 yards worth of scrambling.
After holding the Packers to less than 350 yards of total offense, San Francisco's confidence is at an all-time high. What's truly scary about this team is that they now have the confidence to go and impose their will upon any team in the league.
Out of all 28 teams that played previous to Monday night, the 49ers were without a doubt the most complete squad.
