The last time the Green Bay Packers played the 49ers, the result wasn’t quite what they wanted, to say the least. 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick rushed for more yards in a single game than any quarterback in NFL history with 183. The 49ers totaled 579 yards of total offense in the game en route to a 45-31 divisional playoff victory.
Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers prepared his team this offseason for the rematch of the NFC powerhouses, and according to a report from CSNBayArea.com and Matt Maiocco, he hopes his team is ready this time around.
“Sure, it was a disappointing performance,” Capers told Green Bay media “We didn’t get done the things we wanted to get done, so you’re going to go back and critique it from all different angles and try and make the corrections you feel will give you a much better chance this time.”
“We’ve invested our time. Hopefully, we’re prepared.”
With eight months to prepare for Kaepernick and the 49ers ground game, outside linebacker Clay Matthews mirrored Capers opinion.
“We’ve had an entire offseason to focus on last year’s loss,” Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews said. “Having had that time to figure out how to defend that (read option), we feel better prepared to defend that kind of offense and what he brings to the table.”
