San Francisco Colin Kaepernick fires back

“If intimidation is your game plan, I hope you have a better one.”

This is Colin Kaepernick’s statement to the Green Bay Packers and the rest of the league after the 49ers pulled out a victory in San Francisco earlier today. Kaepernick was referring to the Packers Clay Matthews late hit that helped lead to an important touchdown for San Francisco.

Jim Harbaugh has been vocal about his fear of other teams targeting his quarterback, particularly on read option plays this season. It does not appear that Kaepernick shares that fear. I would anticipate that defensive coordinators that face Kaepernick are moving to the point of desperation in trying to come up with a game plan to stop the talented quarterback.

Green Bay struggled on defense last year and it looks like they still might have some issues to work out on that side of the ball. Kaepernick will surely face a stiffer test next week as the 49ers take on the Seattle Seahawks. I am sure that Pete Carrol will have something up his sleeve to try and stop Kaepernick or at least slow him down.
